1 Rose-Gold Highlights

A post shared by KRISTIN ESS HAIR (@kristin_ess) on

From Starbucks merch to Instagrammable cocktails, rose gold was the official color of 2017...and now 2018, too. Yes, the coppery blonde hue has made its debut in the beauty sphere in the form of soft and subtle highlights, which you can expect to see on some of the coolest heads on Instagram this year—including your own.

2 Double Top Knots

Disclaimer: These are not your average, Miley-Cyrus-at-the-VMAs space buns (which were just glittery, culturally appropriating bantu knots). These voluminous, curly buns are instead equal parts slick and bouncy, making them perfect for days when hair on your neck is not an option.

3 Choppy, Face-Framing Bangs

To say that bangs are having a moment right now is an understatement. Though thick, choppy fringe and long, eye-grazing lengths dominated winter, bangs are becoming shorter, wispier, and breezier as the temps rise. So before summer hits, we suggest you make like Vanessa Hudgens (thanks to hairstylist Chad Wood's handiwork) and hop on the trend early. While you're at it, brush up on your bang-trimming skills (your wallet can thank us for that later).

4 '90s-Inspired Buns

In today's Proof That History Repeats Itself, the scrunchie is back. Once an accessory reserved for gym ponytails, scrunchies are now a surprisingly chic staple. Loop them around a top knot or use 'em to secure a half-up-half-down pony. The options are endless, and the nostalgia is totally welcome.

5 Messy, Piece-y Textures

We're petitioning for soft, texturized waves to be the official hairstyle of springtime, because, let's face it, nothing cures dry, static-y winter hair better than a change of temperature and a bottle of sea salt spray. Just mist over your damp hair, lightly scrunch or plait into two loose French braids, let dry, and boom: Mussed-up waves without the work.

6 Exposed Roots

Nikki Lee and Riawna Capri—the Instagram-famous masterminds behind Los Angeles salon Nine Zero Onetransformed Selena Gomez's signature, chocolate-brown hair into the coolest, grungiest hue. Nicknamed "nirvana blonde," the color calls for contrasting, but subtle, root exposure (which makes grow-out super, duper easy). It takes first place for our favorite spring hair shade.

7 Sky-High Ponytails

Sick of the low bun you wore all winter? Us too, which is why we're seriously excited about super-high ponytails for spring. Not only are they simple and ridiculously pretty (especially if you have a swath of curls), but they're also 100 percent wearable with every hair texture.

8 Waist-Length Waves

Chic, angled lobs and cool, chin-grazing bobs will always have a special place in our hearts, but we're also looking forward to a resurgence of longer, fuller lengths this spring. And we have to admit—there's something inherently pretty and airy about loose, waist-length waves, no?
