There’s something really exciting about the start of spring, wouldn’t you agree? Whether it’s KonMari-ing your life with a spring clean, the prospect of sunnier days ahead or the many new spring haircuts we’re starting to see, it’s got us feeling all happy inside.
If the change in season has inspired you to dust off the winter cobwebs with a new hairstyle, keep scrolling to discover the biggest spring hair trends of 2020.
Fringes have been creeping back in for a while now with the A-list baby bangs and wispy bangs trends but this season it’s the classic, full fringe that’s making its long-awaited return. Best worn with tousled locks for a bit of texture, it’s chic in an effortlessly stylish Jane Birkin sort of way.

Hair accessories commanded major attention both on and off the runway this season and hair clips, in particular, have become one of the biggest spring hair trends on Instagram.
Editor’s tip: Keep the rest of your hair sleek and frizz-free with the TONI&GUY Flyaway Taming Wand. Perfect for carrying with you for on the go touch-ups, this serum is great for smoothing down any stray strands.
This one probably comes as no surprise to anyone, as bobs (in all of their different shapes and styles) have been a recurrent theme for the past few seasons now.
The New Shag
Looking for spring haircuts with a cooler edge? Shaggy, layered cuts are a favourite of cool girls everywhere – just look at Suki Waterhouse! Don’t be put off if you’re someone who prefers a longer length, as the modern shag can be long or short – the bedhead style layers will add body and texture to all lengths.
Editor’s tip: So, you want to know how to plump up those layers and make the most of your new shaggy cut? The secret is to use texturising products, like the VO5 Instant Volume Powder to give hair more grip to amp it up and stop it from falling flat.
Another of this season’s most popular spring hair trends comes Blair Waldorf approved so needless to say, we’re sold. No longer just for little girls, from Prada’s padded headbands to easy-to-wear knotted hairbands in every imaginable colour and pattern, this spring you’re never fully dressed without a headband. So grab one of our favourite leopard print headbands.
From Ariana Grande‘s signature style to Kim K-W‘s centre-parted low-pony, we’ve seen the humble ponytail undergo more reincarnations than we can count. This season’s take is less sleek, instead serving up voluminous, wavy styles that give a bouncy, salon look that works for day or night.
Don’t forget to grab yourself a pair of stylish resin earrings to match your ponytail.
Editor’s tip: Plump up your ponytail by curling sections of your hair beforehand to create texture and set it with a volume-boosting hairspray like the TIGI Bed Head Full Of It Volume Finishing Hairspray.
The ideal gateway fringe for those debating getting bangs, depending on the look you want, you can wear them closer together for an almost full fringe look or further apart, so that they blend into the rest of your hair.
If you thought spring florals were just about pretty dresses, you’re missing out on one of our favourite spring hair trends. The whimsical, floral-adorned hairstyles at Dolce & Gabbana and Rodarte’s SS19 shows were works of art but for a more wearable take, smaller flower clips capture the trend in a more refined way.
