Tell your winter makeup and hair to take a hike for a while…it’s spring and it’s time to lighten up that look! Black nails with a floral print sun dress? I think not. Check out these cute spring hair and makeup trends to update your look for this season:

Heavy bangs are SO Fall 2007…but I still love them anyway. Bangs are always good for masking a high forehead and are a great way to change up your look without making a drastic cut. Even if you hate the bangs, you gotta appreciate a glossy mane, so don’t skimp on the conditioner and go easy on products for a hi pro glow.

I pretty much owned the side ponytale look when I was a kid in the mid-eighties, and I’m glad to see it making a comeback. This is a really cute look to pair with a spring dress and is super easy. Whether you air dry, curl or leave your hair straight, a side ponytale is a great spring look.
Short hair is so not for me, but if I were ever to make the cut, this is what I would do. I just love a pixie cut; it literally transformed Rihanna from a typical pop tart to a stylish divette overnight, and is a fresh look for spring. I much prefer this look to Beyonce’s myriad of weaves and bad wigs, so take note B, Rihanna’s got you beat in the hair department.

I just love the look of dark vampy nsils, but with birds chirping and not a cloud in the sky, it seems a little too goth for my tastes in the spring. You can still get that look for spring with deep navy nails. It will not only work with a cute nautical beach look, but is also great when paired with a spring dress or lighter colors.

Blue eyeshadow is a great spring alternative to dark smoky eyes…it truly complements eyes of any color and is a surprising change. I was hesitant about blue eyeshadow until I tried some of the new paint pots from the MAC Fafi line (did I mention we are GIVING SOME AWAY?) .
This spring, give some of these simple trends a try…it’s as easy as buying some blue eyeshadow and throwing your hair in a side ponytale!
