In a Hair Rut? Try These 6 Warm Weather Hairstyles

The weather is warming up and it's time to get out of your hair rut. A new haircut, color, or style is a great way to revamp your look and start off fresh. The changes can be as subtle as a good trim and new type of ponytail, or as bold as chopping off several inches and adding unique highlights. At Jean Madeline Aveda Institute, we are all about trying fresh, new hairstyles for spring and summer. Here are our favorite trends for 2018:

Put It Up in a High Ponytail

The last thing you want when the weather is warm is a bunch of hair on your neck. Enter the high ponytail. It's a simple way to get your hair out of the way and it also looks chic and beautiful. High ponytails can work with any type of hairstyle. Whether you've got sleek, stick-straight locks or luscious, voluminous curls, this hairstyle is foolproof. For an extra touch, try tying up your high pony with a ribbon.

Blonde girl with double buns.

Embrace Nostalgia With 90s Buns

The hair accessories of your childhood are back and they look great with a bun. You can do a half up, half down hairstyle with a scrunchie to add that nostalgic touch. Another throwback option is clipping it up in the good, old-fashioned claw clip. If you want to get a little quirky while trying to keep hair off your neck, try doing double buns. These are a fun twist on the classic topknot.

Brunette girl with choppy bangs.

Choose Choppy Bangs

Neat, blunt bangs have been in style for years. Why not try something a little more modern and playful? Choppy bangs add an edgy, messy touch to a classic hairstyle. Choppy bangs are great for framing your face and drawing attention to your eyes. The great part about choppy bangs is that they look great with any hair length. Whether you've got long, straight hair, a trendy, wavy lob, or a sleek, blunt bob, these bangs are the perfect addition.

Girl with long, blonde waves sitting by the oceans.

Be Beachy and Bohemian

Chic, short haircuts are beautiful, but long hair will always be pretty and feminine. This season, reveal your inner flower child and let it grow. Haircut trends come and go. Long, loose, waves can give you a beachy look that will always be in style. You can create the perfect waves with a straightening iron or curling wand. If you've got naturally wavy or curly hair, you can use a salt spray or another texturizing product to amp up the body you already have.

Blonde woman with razor haircut.

Get Razor Sharp

On the flip side, if you do want to cut some length off, go for a sharp cut. Sharp cuts are usually cut with a razor instead of scissors, creating wispy strands with thinner ends. The result of this is a more textured look. Adding texture can make your hair look more voluminous and lightweight. It's also SUPER easy to style. So if you're all about that no-fuss, "I woke up like this" look, a razor cut could be your go-to style this season.

Woman with rose gold hair.

Go For the Rose Gold

If you're a long-time fan of the rose gold trend, we've got three words for you: rose gold highlights. This creates a stunning muted blonde shade with a pink undertone. Don't worry, you can also get rose gold hair as a brunette. It's romantic, springy, and a great way to add a splash of color to your look without going over-the-top. Rose gold looks great on long hair, short hair, and everything in-between. For a stunning color this spring/summer, try this seamless blend of yellow, gold, and pink tones.
