Ready to show off your latest hair creation? Spring is incoming, and as the sky gets brighter and the temperature rises, the temptation of getting a new hairstyle and wrapping yourself in a gorgeous new outfit for the season is strong. I get it, after all, I’m a bit of a shopaholic myself. If you’re considering getting a new haircut or new hair colour, consider these formidable combos for your reveal – ideal for a night out with the girls, a business lunch, brunch with your bestie or a romantic date.
1. The French Bob Hairstyle

If you cut your hair in a trendy chin-grazing bob, then set your neck free and show it off with elegant necklines, fine jewellery and statement earrings. The French haircut that we’ve seen on so many celebrities in the past year (and continue to do so as it recently became a popular trend for this spring) tends to highlight the neck and shoulders in a natural, classy way. Hats and berets are the perfect way to top it off, and protect your scalp from the sun during the warmer days. This season’s colours are lavender, baby blue, lilac and bright pink, which you can highlight with white and neutral accessories, such as Texan boots and a mini bag. Maximalism dominates the scene, which helps make a short, blunt haircut stand out. This doesn’t mean that you have to give up on long hair at all: you can easily use clip in hair extensions to swap from one hairdo to another, whenever you feel like it. The bob transforms into a great long, flowy and thick mane that you can style in bouncy, fluffy curly blowouts for a special occasion.
2. The Half-Up, Half-Down Spiky Hairstyle

This trendy hairstyle from the depth of TikTok caught my eye almost instantly. It’s a fresh, feminine and soft take on the classic spiky bun look that held everyone in a chokehold around 2021 and the spring of 2022, now with a new twist. People with fine hair may struggle in keeping things plump and voluminous in their hair with a half-up hairstyle, and here’s where a luxury accessory such as Seamless hair extensions would come into play and keep you fabulous even when half of your hair is tied up in a sleek model-off-duty bun. Half-up, half-down hairstyles naturally draw attention to the shoulders and given the Y2K ongoing raging vibe, opt for halter-neck tops and off-the-shoulder garments with minimalistic jewellery. This hairstyle is perfect for those who love the vanilla girl aesthetic, the trendy coquette-inspired fashion style born on social media.

3. The Casual Bun

Spring time means more going out, more time in the first, warm sun of the year, and more “from the office to the pub” without going home and changing first; this points at one thing in particular, aka finding the perfect hairstyle that is equally smart, versatile and cute. Because let’s be honest: you won’t get caught lacking any fashion sense from the people you hang out with! You don’t need to live a double life a la Hannah Montana to do that, all you need is this trendy, quick and easy bun to look fabulous in and out of work. This hairstyle keeps your hair away from your face, meaning that you will have a lot of freedom to show off gorgeous makeup and accessories such as a pair of beautiful earrings. Fashion in spring 2023 is still pushing cute blazers for this uncertain weather, so think of wearing one in a spring colour such as green, blue or pink – or even neutral shades, if that’s where you’re at! – paired with comfy trousers and jumbo sneakers or a pair of heels, depending on your habits. Gorgeous updos like this one make room for cutesy accessories such as a colourful scarf, too.
4. The Snake Braid

For those who prefer to wear their hair down but don’t want to miss out on a cute twist on the classic straight hair look: how about a trendy snake braid? This hairstyle can be seen everywhere on social media feeds right now, and it’s easy to see why: the look is simple and clean, but with a boho accent to it that makes it an irresistible spring trend. Boosting the look with hair extensions makes sure you’re not missing out on volume and length even by braiding portions of your hair, and it’s so easy to recreate that pretty much anyone can give it a shot. For the look, yes to denim jackets and flowery prints to enhance the blossoming vibe of spring 2023; an explosion of colours with dominant Valentino pink and baby blue will keep you fashionable with the natural vibrancy of these shades for a night out. If you’re feeling brave, opt for midi-length dresses too, as long hairstyles effortlessly flatter this type of look. If you’re experimenting with Y2K fashion, express your creativity with maximalism around your wrists in the form of bangles and bracelets of all sorts!
5. The Claw Clip Hairstyle

Did you think for a moment that claw clip hairstyles were to stay in 2022? Well, let me tell you, you were wrong. If you remember wearing a claw clip back in the day as a teenager, first of all: did you put your retinol cream on last night? Jokes on a side, this beloved 90s hair accessory had its raging comeback last year, and it’s not going anywhere any time soon. The fair weather means that we can finally put our hair up with a good excuse this time, and what better way to do it if not with a cute claw clip? I have written more about this useful and trendy accessory in our dedicated blog: Thursday Hair 101: How To Put Your Hair In A Claw Clip, where you can find some inspiration for more claw clip hairstyles. Outfit ideas: floral prints and sleeveless dresses are perfect to let your hair lay long and flowy in a gorgeous half-up hairstyle, but also to enhance your neck and shoulders if you decide to go with a full claw clip updo hairstyle. Preppy outfits with cable knit jumpers for a cold evening and an elegant blazer for your nights out are all the rage now, and a peppy claw clip half-up is the ideal hairdo to spice things up and still look like a bag of money.
6. The Mini Twist Braids
This cute hairstyle brings you the best of both worlds, and has a cute and playful vibe to it. If you decided to give yourself a 90s-inspired midi cut at some point this year, then adding these adorable accents to your hairstyle will give you the ultimate Y2K energy for a spring full of shenanigans. Outfit idea: a denim miniskirt and a cut out jumper are the perfect way to look flawless for a day of shopping with your friends, potentially ending with one or two of your favourite drinks. Adding texture to your hairstyle with soft waves will keep your hair bouncy and rich in movement, the perfect option for a spring outfit. Yes to baggy jeans or, if you’re feeling brave, to experiment with the return of low-rise jeans for a naughty noughties vibe. Tank top + cargo trousers are the vibe for a warm day out, as seen on the Coperni catwalk, with large pockets on your hips to flatter an hourglass figure. For a night out, feel free to experiment with butterfly tops and flared trousers: you can complete the outfit with platform boots to transform yourself in the ultimate baddie sensation.
7. The Wavy High Ponytail

The high ponytail has been everywhere, and guess what? Yes, it’s still holding us all in a chokehold. There is no way I can demonise this hairstyle, as it’s universally flattering and brings attention to your facial features and a colourful outfit in no time. People with shorter hair or that don’t have enough volume in their tresses can count on clip in ponytail hair extensions, that are practically impossible to tell from natural hair, and can also be used to add highlights or a dash of colour to your mane. Human hair extensions can be curled and styled as you would with your own hair, meaning that you can use this unmissable accessory to recreate this gorgeous hairstyle in the comfort of your own home in less than 5 minutes. For your spring outfit, statement crop tops and flared jeans are the perfect combo for a lunch date, brunch with your friends or a day out; think of a trendy puffer jacket if the weather is uncertain or if the sky is looking grey-ish. For a night out, maxi dresses and minimal accessories such as a pochette will allow this gorgeous hairstyle to be your statement piece, and give you that flawless rich California aesthetic.
8. The Headband Hairstyle
The up and coming wave of interest in 70s and hippie-inspired hairstyles is spiking, and with it we’re seeing a lot of headband hairstyles going viral on TikTok. Long, luscious lengths go a long way – you can easily achieve them with the aid of tape in hair extensions, for example – and braided tendrils make the perfect accent to top it all off. For an outfit idea think of flower-power prints, retro colour palettes with dominant shades of brown, orange, beige and green, or bright pink; hoop earrings are the ideal jewellery to get that Instagram diva look. British brand Hippie Shake is the perfect place to shop anything 70s inspired and get tons of ideas for both outfits and hairstyles belonging to the colourful funky era. Platform boots and sandals are equally valid options for footwear this season; crop tops and statement belts, maxi-flared jeans, trendy vests and maximalist bracelets and bangles on your wrists to achieve the ultimate Woodstock aesthetic. Bandeau tops are also really good if the weather allows it. Denim jackets but also fringes and cowgirl vibes are to dominate the scene during warmer days.
9. The Bubble Braid

Just like the high ponytail, the bubble braid is a valid option for those who’d like to add a touch of spice to their look in a fierce yet super elegant way. Millennials will remember Fergie from Black Eyed Peas as the queen of the bubble braid hairstyle, and if you’d like to achieve the same baddie vibe, then look no further than the wrap around ponytail hair extensions set to make this hairstyle yours. Outfit ideas are extremely versatile, depending on the aesthetic you’re trying to achieve: from a loose button-down and baggy jeans for a casual look, to cargo pants and spaghetti-strap tops to live your early 00s dream. Maxi dresses will get the job done, both for a day out or a fancy evening date. Oversized shirts and leather trousers are another classic look that is spreading widely, thanks to the looks served by Peter Do and featured in Vogue magazine. Choose faux leather for an eco-friendly fashion pick, and opt for a high-shine finish and strong seams to balance the simple top with a bold, edgy bottom piece.
10. The Return Of Bangs

Thanks to the 70s revival and inspired by some celebrity looks such as Bella Hadid’s, full bangs are back. Now, you can go either full Cher with a blunt fringe that has a glamorously retro flavour, or keep things more modern and edgy as seen on superstars like Zendaya, and go for choppy bangs that will keep everyone on their toes. No matter what your preference is, there’s a way for you to achieve this look without committing to a new haircut: clip in bangs. Outfit ideas include everything 70s, such as ethereal maxi gowns and long dresses to channel your inner Stevie Nicks vibes and get a whimsical, fae-like aesthetic, or halter-neck tops and jeans (either baggy, bootcut or flared) to make the most out of Y2K energy. Take it from Max Mara: cropped t-shirts and long skirts are the ideal choices to recreate an elegant 90s look; find the perfect accessory among a range of sunglasses and claw clips to complete the outfit and make yourself look like a 90s vamp, ready for the red carpet.
These 10 gorgeous hairstyles and outfit ideas for spring 2023 will have you feeling like the world is your runway! Make sure you arm yourself with the right accessories such as Remy hair extensions, trendy sunnies and statement pieces to recreate the best looks of the season.
