Spring and summer time are coming and we are all looking for new ways to style our hair. A lot of new styles for 2013 seem to be past hairstyles that are coming back into style. If you are not sure what hairstyle to try your local hair salon should be able to give you some tips.

Long Hairstyle

The classic long hairstyle is always in. Long hair can be a great choice because of all the possibilities you have for styling. One popular long hairstyle is soft waves. There are many methods of creating this look. Many choose to use your typical curling iron, but now there are new ways with curling wands and even curling with your flat iron. You are going to want to start with dry hair. When using any heat tools on your hair it is always important to use a thermal protectant. There are many different thermal protectants such as serums, creams and sprays. I personally like to use Pearl Complex from Chi. I start by applying a small amount to my hands and running it through the damp hair. I then use the blowdryer to dry the hair. You could also use a round brush or a vent brush depending on your desired look. I then like to apply a bit more thermal protectant as I will be using a heat tool again. If your thermal protectant is an oily product you may not need to do this. I then put in large curls going away from the face using whatever tool you feel most comfortable with. It is important to play around with different irons to see the differences in results. After the hair is curled I then apply a light hairspray to the hair. I like to use Masterpiece from Tigi. If you like the soft touchable curls you can then finish by applying a shine serum or cream to the hair. Usually shine products tend to break down the hold of the hairspray slightly resulting in a softer curl. I like to use Afterparty from Tigi. And wholla! Beautiful soft touchable waves. This style could also be used in medium and shorter styles as well.

Braids

Another popular style with long hair is braids. There are so many braids to choose from such as the halo, waterfall, fish tail, or the classic French braid. Each of these braids is very simple and they are everyday hair styles everyone can wear. The popular fishtail braid is done in just a few simple steps. First step it to pull your hair into a low pony tail and separate it into two sections. The second step is to loosely take a strand of hair from underneath one section and bring it over top of the other section; repeat this step until all your hair is braided.

Short Hair

Short hair also seems to be making a comeback. Some hairstyles that are in style include the pixie and boy cut. Many celebrities have started trending this style such as Miley Cyrus, Anne Hathaway and Emma Watson. This cute messy hairstyle can be done in just minutes with a hair dryer and some pomade. Dry your hair with a blowdryer and apply pomade to create texture and movement in the hair. If you have curly or wavy hair you may want to use a flat iron to smooth your hair. I love using Frenzy from Short Sexy Hair. It is the perfect combination of hold and a little bit of shine. It is slightly heavier so if you have fine hair you might want to try something like Hard to Get from Tigi.

Bangs are Back!

The latest popular trend in hairstyles though is the comeback of the bangs! Bangs can either swoop to the side or be straight in the front. Your bangs can be anything from soft and wispy to bold and blunt. It is so amazing how just adding some new bangs can change a hairstyle dramatically. If you are looking for a new style to try this spring/summer try one of these new popular trends.
