What to Stick in Your Hair This Spring

THINK OUTSIDE THE BOBBY PIN

This spring, hair trends are thinking outside the bobby pin and moving toward pearls, crystals and more. If you want to stay up-to-date, grab your crafting tools and start DIY-ing some new hair accessories or look for these styles on your next spring shopping spree.

Lavender

We have yet to see how mainstream this lavender trend is actually going to become, but it was quite the talk after Alice + Olivia stuck lavender in their models' hair for New York Fashion Week. I personally hope this is something that will take off because it's so fun. Last year, everyone (including me—guilty!) was coloring their hair lavender, but this is an easy way to play with the shade in a less permanent way.

If you love the smell, try sticking real lavender from your local farmer's market in your hair for relaxation all day long. Or you can buy fake sprigs from a craft store to start DIY-ing your own creations.

Bows

I still love a good cheerleader bow, but this new style transforms one giant bow into a bunch of little baby bows! It's so cute and youthful. Plus, I feel having a little bit of bedhead would actually work in your favor for this one, so that means less work in the morning!

Pearls

Now is not the time to clutch your pearls, ladies—it's time to stick them all over your head. We're already seeing lots of chunky barrettes covered in pearls in stores everywhere, but you can also stick individual pearls throughout braids, in spirals around an up-do, and really anywhere you want in your hair. Get the hot glue gun and start putting pearls all over the ends of your bobby pins. You're going to need them!

Crystals

Similarly to pearls, get ready to start sticking crystals all over your locks as well. There is no stopping the glitz this spring, and you can opt for tiny jewels to stick all over your hair or bobby pins, and you can also shop for big, sparkly hair clips. It's like everyone gets to wear wedding styles this year, no matter what the occasion is.

What are your favorite hair trends this spring? Will you be sticking any of these things in your hair? Let me know!
