There’s a new feeling in the air, new flowers, new weekend activities, new . . . hair. If you’re like us, the warmer season makes you yearn for a style makeover, so why not start with your haircut?
Whether you’re looking for a drastic chop (chic bobs are still so in) or you just want to make a slight tweak, we rounded up 12 celebrity photos to print out and take to your stylist this season. Better hair days are ahead!
Lupita Nyong’o: Short Crop
Go hard or go home, right? If you want to chop it all off, Lupita’s short hairstyle is the stuff hair dreams are made of: low-maintenance yet super stylish, on point when left alone or accessorized by a delicate, glittery headband (which Lupita is often seen wearing). We’re seriously considering this for Spring — and especially the upcoming hot Summer months!
Demi Lovato: Rocker Short Hair
Of course the “Stone Cold” singer’s new confidence came from her fit-as-heck body, but we’re also convinced her short, edgy cut had a lot to do with it. And it’s not true what they say about short hair being unversatile: since making the chop, Demi’s rocked this look pin straight, tousled, and slicked back. Cool for the Spring.
Christina Milian: Curly Bob
We adore Christina’s spin on the cut: the length and subtle waves make it part Hollywood glamour, part young, fresh, and free. Plus, it’s still just long enough to pull back into a low pony but short enough that it won’t take much work to upkeep.
Jackie Cruz: Pin-Straight Bob
The sleek-and-chic French-style bob Orange Is the New Black‘s Jackie Cruz has been rocking recently will have you ready to go under the scissors, bangs and all. This look would be modern and hot in any hair color, but we’d recommend going for some subtle highlights like Jackie’s for an easy-breezy look.
Eva Longoria: Midlength and Soft
Dying for a change but not quite ready to go super short yet? We’re obsessed with Eva Longoria’s just-right midlength cut, which is not too short, not too long — with extra volume and movement thanks to some aptly placed layers. Go with a deep side part à la Longoria, and you’ve got your fresh Spring look.
Jennifer Lopez: Straight Lob
Who can forget when typically long-haired J Lo debuted a flirty new bob for her TV show Shades of Blue last Summer? We were shocked at how much we loved Jenny from the Block’s shoulder-grazing style — and inspired to try it ourselves. And good news: your stylist can skip the overzealous straightening, because the carefree air-dried look gives this cut a Spring-y update.
Eva Mendes: Midlength Layers
If Jennifer’s look is a tad too short and the other Eva’s is a bit too long, Eva Mendes has long had the shoulder-length cut of your dreams. If you’re going to try out this style, get your very own Ryan Gosling ready, because a bit of feathering and layering from your stylist will have you looking like Eva in no time.
Rosario Dawson: Midlength Curls
Let this photo of Rosario Dawson be your guide to get her carefree, above-the-shoulder curls, which are effortless and fuss-free for Spring and Summer. We vote for a similar side part for a touch of glam.
Selena Gomez: Long and Flowy
She was recently crowned the number one most-followed person on Instagram, and while it’s of course due to her musical talent and sexy posts, we’re willing to bet many people follow her because, well: #hairgoals. The Texas-born beauty knows how to sport shiny, long, and flowing locks; bring this recent photo to your stylist if you’re looking to re-create her lengthy layers.
Adriana Lima: Long and Wavy
Does anything say Spring like the straight-out-of-bed, beach-style waves Adriana Lima rocked at Milan Fashion Week’s Versace show in February 2016? Ask for long, soft layers — the key to maintaining frizz-free, natural-looking waves.
Shakira: Long, Relaxed Curls
We can’t remember to forget the Colombiana’s loose, envy-inducing tousled curls, which first made their debut as a dark brunette in 1991 before transforming into her signature bright blond. If you’re looking to proudly rock your natural curls this season, let Shakira’s healthy volume and long length be your inspiration.
Yaya DaCosta: Long and Very Curly
When you have long but tight, spiral curls, you know shrinkage will drastically affect the appearance of your length. Shape is key, so try talking to your hair guru about achieving a gorgeous afro like Yaya’s, which is accentuated by lots of volume and a perfectly placed side part.
