There’s no better way to start off a new season than with a fresh look. So when you’re spring cleaning your makeup bag and purging your closet, don’t forget about updating your crowning glory. Whether you’ve gone natural, wear a full weave, or are somewhere in between, there’s no shortage of hair mentors to help show you the way. We often look to our favorite celebrities for beauty inspiration and they continue to help set the pace in the hair department. Here are five hair trends to try (or just admire from afar) and the celebs that are killing the look.
TREND: NATURAL HAIR
Talk about setting the bar high! Our favorite awkward black girl has been bringing her beauty “A” game at every turn. Her stylist, Felicia Leatherwood, never fails to disappoint and reveal creative ways to showcase Issa’s natural hair. From fun and flirty to regal and majestic, her style has been on a whole other level.
TREND: THE AFRO
As if her talent wasn’t enough to keep us mesmerized! When she stepped onto the red carpet at the Golden Globes this year channelling Diana Ross with that breathtaking afro, she stole the show. Close-cropped, tapered, shaved, or in its full blown glory the ‘fro is here to stay.
TREND: SILVER HAIR
Say what you want about her, you can’t deny her trendsetting style. With women more willing to experiment with color now than ever before, this curvaceous beauty shows us how to wear these trendy silver strands without looking like a grandma.
TREND: THE PIXIE
This pixie cut made its debut about a year ago and it’s still giving us life. The short ‘do works on almost every face shape and can be worn slicked back, curled, or swept to the side. Go bolder with a vibrant color or a few soft highlights and you’ll be unstoppable.
TREND: BRAIDS AND LOCS
These protective styles have been around but continue to be on trend. Ava is the poster child for classic/classy natural locs, and when Gabby wears braids they’re always on point. Faux or natural locs, braids–short or long– these ladies are always #goals.
