How to get spring-ready hair without the fuss or damage
Nick Drewe, hair trends specialist at WeThrift says: “From our general wardrobe to hair colour choices, it’s officially that time of year where we are now embracing the wonderful essence of spring.
“Whether you want to go Kendall Cooper or copy Zendaya’s stunning honey blonde look, there are several things to keep in mind if you want to effortlessly step into your spring locks.
“The first thing to do is to consult your stylist before making any drastic hair changes. When discussing your requirements, make it clear to your stylist the particular style you’re looking for, and ask what shades they would recommend.
“Before you even begin the colouring process, inform your stylist of any fringes and inches you want cutting off. After all, you don’t want the risk of cutting off lightened sections of your hair that your stylist probably spent hours working on.
“Having your haircut beforehand will allow your stylist to more effectively map out where they should integrate your new colours. As well as this, root regrowth will be more visible if you have a fringe, so you may want to cut off your fringe before making a big colour change.
“Once the big hair transition is complete, it’s time to complement the look with the right makeup and wardrobe choices.
“Say hello to spring by opting for light makeup colours with a beige, pink, or peach hue. These, paired with a neutral-coloured lipstick, would be a perfect choice. When it comes to your wardrobe, shades of red, brown, mustard, pink, and blue — as well as the classic black and white – are some of the best colours that suit even the brightest of colours.
“Saving the most crucial piece of advice until the last, it’s important to use the right products for the upkeep of your spring-ready hair.
“As we can certainly tell, these hair colours are high in energy, dimension, and detail. From using a good blonde shampoo, a purple shampoo for brassiness, and being careful with oils, your new locks need to have the best hair care regime. As everyone’s hair is different, consult your stylist for any products they would recommend.
“As well as this, simple lifestyle changes such as washing your hair less, rinsing it with cold water, and using hair heat protectant sprays will enable those locks to shine.”
