February always makes us long for the green grass, warm sunshine, and blooming trees and flowers that April and May bring.
Spring may seem a long way off—but don’t worry, these cold weeks will fly by. For those who are super-excited for the rebirth of the season, get a head start by channeling some of spring’s biggest beauty trends!
Pucker up with super-vibrant shades of lipstick—from classic crimson to the prettiest pinks. This look is freshest with clean, dewy skin and a little mascara so you can let your lips do the talking. Try Aveda’s Nourish-Mint Smoothing Lip Color in Wild Fuchsia, and create the perfect canvas for your color with Jane Iredale’s amazing, mineral-based foundation and powder.
A little sparkle
The spring runways showed plenty of romantic details, but our favorite was the abundance of sparkle. No need to wear straight-up glitter on your face though; why not wear it on your nails? Smith and Cult, one of our fave polish lines, has a few beautiful glitter shades ready to help you showcase this decadent trend.
A new twist
We’ve seen every kind of braid walk the runway. Fishtails, Dutch braids and crown braids have all had their moment. Now it’s time for the twist braid to shine. Some of us may have rocked this style as a kid, but it’s come back strong. Give it extra shine and polish with Oribe’s Crème for Style. It’ll calm frizz and keep your braid in place all day.
We noticed many designers going with the flow and letting models walk the runway with natural hair this spring. Why not embrace this easy trend for yourself? Instead of fighting your curls or spending hours curling your straight hair, embrace what your mama gave you. We’ll help you find the right products to make your hair look its best straight out of the shower. It can be done!
For spring, we’re loving the dip-dye trend. It’s a good way to test out bold, vibrant colors like hot pink without committing to a full head’s worth of color.
Another one of our favorite spring colors is bright copper red. While red is a notoriously difficult color to keep up, it sure is beautiful! We recommend caring for your copper tresses using Oribe’s Shampoo and Conditioner for Beautiful Color. Pump up the red with Aveda’s beloved Madder Root conditioner between salon visits.
With these five fashionable trends, you’ll be feeling fresh and ready for spring in a snap! Now if only the weather would warm up a little faster…
