6 Cool Haircut Trends to Try This Spring (Before Everyone Else)
- The biggest haircut trends for spring are looking a little retro.
- You can expect to see modern takes on the mullet, layered shags, and more.
- Pro hairstylists are sharing their trend predictions for the upcoming season.
In the spirit of honesty, we’d like to disclose that there is no “right” way to kick off a new season. But in spring, it’s certainly not not sprinkling your iCal with al fresco brunches and outdoor picnics (then immediately online-ordering a brand-new wardrobe to wear to all of the above). The itch to change it up tends to rise with the temperature, and you want your hair to match that energy. The only prerequisite to firing up the group chat, then, is to book yourself a haircut.
Here’s what you should ask for, boiled down to two words: a throwback. “History tends to repeat itself, as do hairstyles, and this year, we’re seeing a lot of textured waves and choppy layers,” Brad Mondo, hairstylist and founder of Xmondo Hair, previously told POPSUGAR. “Most of the haircuts we’ll see will be straight out of the ’70s.”
We’re talking layered shags and mullet haircuts galore (or its cool new cousin, the “mixie” cut), plus a side of curtain bangs for good measure. Like hemlines, hair will also be getting shorter and shorter (that’s because “people like to dust their hair when it gets warmer,” he says), making now prime time to lob it all off. If you’re looking for the exact haircut trend to get you in the spring spirit – even if the only plan you have on the agenda is sitting on the couch binge-watching “Pam & Tommy” for the foreseeable future – we’re breaking down our eight favourites ahead.
