4 Must-Try Hairstyles for Spring

Spring has sprung and so has our excitement to change up our look. Whether it's going for a lighter hair color, or opting for a bright new wardrobe - springtime often marks a shift to a fresh new style. Together with our friend, Alex Gaboury, we've assembled four must-try hairstyles that we'll be rocking this spring season. Watch the video below or scroll down for step-by-step instructions on how to recreate these looks. 

Look 1. Braided Topknot

  • Section off a small section of hair at the top of your head
  • Next, gather a layer of hair at your temple to create the base of your braid
  • Working your way down, continuing french-braiding your hair
  • Make your braid more fluffy and voluminous by "pancaking" out the sides
  • Take your braid and bring it upwards into a high ponytail, joining it with the unbraided top section, secure into a ponytail
  • Complete the look by twisting the remaining strands into a topknot

Look 2. Bubble Braid Ponytail

  • Create a small ponytail at the crown of your head and secure with an elastic
  • For dramatic length and volume in this look, take one three-clip weft of your Luxy Hair extensions and wrap around the ponytail
  • Gather the remainder of your hair with the extensions and secure in a high ponytail with an elastic
  • To create the bubble effect, work your way down the ponytail adding hair elastic every 3-4 inches
  • Pull out hair from all sides of the bubble to create a voluminous effect
  • Continue this process down the length of your ponytail until you have about two inches left at the bottom

Look 3. Twist-Back Ponytail

  • Trace down your hair from your temple, behind your ear, and down to the nape of your neck, creating a section of hair at the front of your face. Repeat on both sides
  • Gather the remainder of your hair in a sleek low ponytail - you may opt to add a couple wefts of Luxy Hair extensions at this stage to create an extra voluminous effect 
  • Starting on the right front section, divide the section in half. Take the section above the temple and twist it backwards toward the ponytail
  • Before securing the twist around the ponytail with a bobby pin, use two fingers to pull out sections of the twist to create extra texture
  • Repeat on the left side, crossing over the twist from the right 
  • Then do the same thing with the remaining two sections 
  • Hide any loose ends by tucking them under and securing with bobby pins

Look 4. Fishtail Braid Pigtails

  • Divide your hair into two equal sections
  • Take a four-clip weft of your Luxy Hair extensions fold it over, and clip it onto itself to create an extra-thick "two-clip" weft. Alternatively, you can clip two two-clip wefts on top of each other.
  • To place in the extensions, divide the right section in half and clip in the weft into the middle of the section. Repeat on the other side
  • Tightly fishtail braid each section of hair and secure with an small hair elastic
  • To create a textured and voluminous effect, pancake your braid by gently tugging on strands of hair until the braid becomes looser
  • Finish off the braid by hiding the elastic - do this by grabbing a small section of hair and wrapping it around the end of the braid and tucking it under the elastic 

That's all! Four beautiful springtime hairstyles that we'd love for you to try.
