Spring Hair Ideas For Medium Length Hair

Spring is here, even though it snowed this evening. March is such a fickle month! But it's definitely time to start thinking about that spring look, including the hair. I took a look around the net to see what I might find for inspiration for you and myself. Since I have medium length hair, I'll focus mainly on that.

First of all, I love a beautiful curl but most of the time, just don't want to spend the time to get it!  To get those perfect curls on your head you need to know how to hold the curling iron! The trick is to hold the curling iron upside down! Who knew? Instead of clamping it in the iron, simply wrap it around the barrel. It makes a truly gorgeous curl!
Another style that will have you on point this spring is the tousled beach waves look. This look is a little different than the classic curl. You use sea salt spritz on wet hair to define the hair but making it as light as possible, avoiding the roots. After it is dry, use a curling iron and take random sections holding it only 3 - 5 seconds. Then you can tousle your hair with your fingers or leave it for tighter curls. Finish with hairspray.

Straight hair is glossier and more swingy than ever! Get the look with lots of straightening serum, straightening irons, hairspray and a paddle brush! If you don't like extreme heat on your hair, there are these alternatives:
1. Brush your hair until it dries and smooth it with hairspray
2. Wrap your hair before bed and secure it with a scarf.
3. Roll your wet hair with large rollers the size of soda cans, letting it dry completely before removing rollers.
Hair Accessories are huge this spring as well! The more creative, the better. Use scarves, pins, barrettes, ponytail holders, ribbons, flowers, or whatever else you feel is fun and stylish! There are so many beautiful hair accessories out there! Try for starters! It's going to be a great hair year!

For all 3 of the above hairstyles--curly, tousled and straight, the use of a heated styling wand or iron is suggested. Not all stylers are the same and an educated guess about which to use on your particular hair type is recommended! You need to decide how much heat your hair can stand, what kind of look you want, and then decide how much you want to invest in the ideal instrument. It is an extremely wide range! 
 I know I'm now more motivated to try something cute and new! I hope that you too get excited about your spring look too! There are so many options out there and it surely is motivating to do something different, once winter is behind us!
