Five Hair Looks for Spring
BY KARI MOLVAR
The Breezy Side Braid
Thick, roughed-up side braids dominated the show at Lela Rose, where the hairstylists teased sections with hair spray to create a slightly gritty texture, then pulled everything to the side and braided away. Bumps and flyaways welcome.
Style with: Beautiful Hold hairspray, Ted Gibson ($20). Target, 3100 14th St. NW; target.com
Brushed Out Curls
Deconstructed waves were in full in effect everywhere you turned. At Thakoon, stylists curled the hair, then brushed it out until it took on a gauzy texture that looked better with a little frizz.
Style with: Coiff Océanique Tousled Wave spray, Fekkai ($23). Sephora, 3065 M St. NW; sephora.com
The Tucked-Under Bob
Models at Michael Angel only looked like they lopped off their hair. To create this minimalist faux bob, secure your hair into a low-hanging ponytail, then roll the length of the tail up and under itself, securing it in place with bobby pins.
Style with: Thickening serum, Bumble and Bumble ($27). bumbleandbumble.com
The Ropey Twist
The low-slung, twisty buns at Ruffian are among the coolest ’dos of spring. The key is to keep your hair slightly damp with a liquid gel or mousse. Then twist the length of your ponytail, wrap it around into a bun and jab in some bobby pins to anchor the look.
Style with: Hardwear 16 gel, Redken ($16). Bang Salon, 1612 U St. NW; bangsalon.com
Models at Badgley Mischka wowed the crowds by pinning back sections of glossy curls with striking accessories—like sparkly barrettes and clips adorned with gigantic, glamorous silk flowers—positioned right at eye level.
Style with: Hydrating styling cream, Moroccanoil ($32). Alanya Spa, 3285 M St. NW; alanyadc.com
