A timeless classic, we had to start the list with the straight-back cornrows. This look is perfect for warm Spring days as it keeps your hair off your neck and away from your face, but it’s also tucked away on those cool Spring mornings.

TIP: When doing this style, be sure to not braid it too tight. This will help avoid discomfort and any unnecessary strain on your hair’s delicate roots.


Flower ‘fro

First on our list of Spring-worthy hairstyles, is the classic afro. Spruce up your afro quickly and beautifully with a few flower accessories scattered throughout. Add a few bright colours for contrast, like in this image. This is what we call a spring-worthy hairstyle!


Feature braids

Inspired by the 90s, feature braids are a trending spring hairstyle. These are usually seen as two centre braids, but can also be on the side of the head. For an extra fun vibe, add some cute accessories to the braids.


Bold headbands

We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: headbands are one of our favourite accessories. And it’s no wonder: it’s practical and can elevate your look. For a spring hairstyle, wear headbands in a bright colour or with bold prints.

The French bob is all about that gorgeous volume. Give your hair volume and hold with a volumising mousse, like the VO5 Extra Body Styling Mousse.


Braided knots

Keep your hair neat and slick while wearing your braided knots neat with a bit of hair gel. We definitely recommend the VO5 Sculpted Mega Hold Styling Gel to keep your hair in place all day and night, no matter the weather.

Hats are a year-round type of accessory, making it perfect for transitioning from winter to spring.

As long as you keep the hat on, nobody will know it’s not a great hair day (wink!).
