The Hottest Hair Styles This Season

This spring, hair makes two bold and very opposing statements: either severely sleek or unabashedly romantic. Sprucing up color also plays a part in both styles. Icy blondes, vampy brunettes, and every shade of red feel fresh and now.

Low Ponytails

Move over top knots; here come pony tails that sit neatly at the nape. We spied this elegant one backstage at Osklen.

Sculpted Looks

SPRING-2014-windsweptStylists are creating works of modern art with extreme side parts, razor-sharp angles, and structured knots.

Short & Chic

If you’re thinking of going short, there’s no time like the present. A length–anywhere from above the ears to the shoulders–gives you lots of options including pixies and bobs. Here’s the “clavi-cut” at Ralph Lauren.

Romantic Braids

From crowns to milkmaid braids, there are a lot of plaits in the air. This modern bird’s nest was seen on Nicole Miller.

Mermaid Hair

The new beach hair is straight from the sea; waves are flatter and look almost crimped. Here, the Rodarte sisters put a goth spin on Ariel.


In a season where bare is  beautiful, ombre is out, and “sombre, ” a more subtle variation of ombre, minus the bleached ends, is in.

Icy Blondes

Platinum is cool and surprisingly versatile: it can work to glam effect as seen on Beyonce; or skew goth and edgy, making it a favorite choice among bloggers.

Red Hot

Brunettes and blondes, it’s time for a sexy change. Jessica Chastain’s rose-gold hair is right on the money.

Pin-up Brown

Mysterious and sexy, channel your inner vamp, as Margot Robbie did on the Oscars red carpet, in a dramatic shade of mahogany. See more brunette hair color ideas.
