Delicate Hair Jewelry

Hair jewelry has been spotted on many celebrities recently, with Emma Watson being the latest to pull of the sparkly trend. Although hair jewelry may appear complicated, it’s as easy as taking an ordinary necklace off your vanity and intertwining it in a simple bun or braid. For this look, worn by Watson at the Beauty and the Beast premiere, hairstylist Adir Abergel, creative director of Virtue, crafted the look relatively easily: “I started off applying Virtue Uplifted Volumizing Whip ($36) all over her roots through the midshaft of the hair, to create memory and volume while ensuring a soft texture,” he explained. “I then rough-dried the hair and added some texture with a 3/4-inch curling iron.” Once hair was prepped, Abergel gathered the hair into a loose chignon, securing it with pins and adding the Adirx Lelet NY gold quill halo and goldquill bobbies from his accessory line to hold the hair in place.

Knotted Pony

Hairstylist Riawna Capri gave Julianne Hough’s ponytail a unique twist—literally. This knotted pony is the latest hair trend to arise that’s practical, easy to do and polished. As a bonus, this style helps manage loose hair strands without losing style. It’s all about that minimalist appeal and subtle detailing. 

Tied-Up Bottoms

Tied-up bottoms is another hairstyle taking on the knot trend. Hairstylist Nikki Lee of 901 Salon created this effortlessly chic look using the t3 Micro Single Pass Luxe Styling Iron ($180) to add texture and waves, thereby creating the perfectly lazy, “just rolled out of bed” hair look. 

Parisian Updos

It’s the little details on hairdos like this one that give the classic updo a unique, Parisian feel. The tiny braid, loosely wrapped hair around the pony and tousled strands make this look sophisticated, stylish and somewhat European. To add texture and volume at the roots, use dry shampoo and tease hair at the crown with a brush. The extra bounce gives this look a flirty touch instantly.  

Flat Waves

While we usually will do everything in our power to prevent hairstyles from falling flat, looser, less defined waves are suddenly trending again. Need proof? Lucy Hale recently wore these smooth waves, created by hairstylist Kristin Ess, to give the classic beach waves a softer feel. You can quickly run a curling iron through your hair and add a shine spray like the Sexy Hair Vibrant Sexy Hair Rose Elixir ($22) to recreate the look in five minutes flat. 

Wet Hair

This year, wet hair became a huge beauty statement on the runway, red carpet and big screen. While on set with Jenna Dewan Tatum, hairstylist Kristin Ess achieved a Wet n’ Wild 90’s look by using product to mimic the slick shine of wet hair. Try a mousse like the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Touchable Bounce Mouse ($7) or a gel like Paul Mitchell Firm Style Super Clean Sculpting Gel ($9) to reconstruct the look at home. Whether it’s slicked back or twisted up, wet hair is sexy, glamorous and one of the hottest spring trends that will make you rethink using a hair dryer.

Disheveled Fishtail

Images of perfectly messy fishtail braids have been surfacing on Instagram a lot lately, making them a major trend this season. As one of the easiest braids to create, the disheveled fishtail is the perfect go-to for when you want to look styled, but not so intentionally done-up. Hairstylist Riawna Capri created this effortless look using a loose plait that plays up natural hair texture. To add more body and wave, apply a texturing spray like Wella EIMI Ocean Spritz Salt Hairspray ($19) and gently pull the braid apart to boost thickness.

Bardot bangs is one of the biggest hair trends to get behind this season. The ’70s fringe reemerged on the red carpet when both Felicity Jones and Goldie Hawn wore the iconic look to the Golden Globes this year, obviously inspired by the iconic Brigitte Bardot. This fringe style is flattering on all face shapes, making it a safe bet for all—no matter your hair texture or length.
