5 Easy Spring Hairstyles

5 Easy Spring Hairstyles

Spring officially arrived last week and that means wedding & prom season is just around the corner! I'm at the age now where my friends and I all seem to have tons of weddings and showers to go to every summer, but it wasn't long ago that this time of year meant planning our looks for end-of-school-year formals. 

Oh how time flies...

No matter what fancy life events you may have this spring, you might need a little hair inspiration. Particularly if you have more than one wedding or baby shower to go to! I don't know about you, but unless I'm the one getting married, I don't want to shell out cash for a professional up-do. With that in mind, here are five super easy hairstyles you can do yourself that will make you look like you came straight from the salon.

1. Twisted Bun: I love how this bun adds unique detail to a classic style, and it's much simpler to do than it looks. For full tutorial click here.

2. French Twist: A french twist is the first formal hairstyle I learned to do when I was little because they're so easy! I really like how this one has pieces that loosely frame the face. For full tutorial click here

3. Formal Ponytail: I've been seeing this style around a lot lately and have been dying to try it myself. I love how the hair is folded over itself at the base of the pony to hide the elastics and make it look incredibly thick. For full tutorial click here

4. Twisted Crown Braid: I really like romantic looks like this twisted crown braid for spring and summer weddings. I can picture this hairstyle looking gorgeous with a floral summer dress. For full tutorial click here.

I recently went to the salon myself to get a little spring spruce-up. I woke up that morning with the urge to be a whole lot blonder, and my incredible stylist Pamela gave me the most beautiful highlights. If you're in the Toronto area and are looking for a talented stylist, I can't recommend Pamela enough. Here are a couple pics she took of my freshly cut and coloured hair. 

Visit Pamela on Instagram to see more of her work. If you're interested in booking an appointment, contact The Loft Toronto.   

Although wedding and prom season can feel a little crazy, what makes it extra fun for me is experimenting with different hair and makeup looks. Which one of these up-dos is your favourite? Do you have a lot of formal events to go to this season?

PS: This post is not sponsored by my stylist or by the salon in any way. I just wanted to give a shout-out to the woman who keeps my hair looking beautiful!
