Braided upswept hair: Try integrating the Spring 2017 trend of playful plaits, with a beautifully braided updo. The look of slight volume at the crown and a loose Dutch braid wrapped around the back of the head can set the stage for your hairstyle.

Loose curls with floral accessories: For a low key ‘do which also channels your inner bohemian goddess, turn to loosely curled locks tumbling over your shoulders. Meanwhile, a half-up and half-down hairstyle with a small side braid can further enhance your boho chic beauty vibes. Accessorize your completed look with tiny faux (or real) blossoms pinned into your flowing princess curls.

Sleek chignon: If you’re a classic beauty with a love of simplicity, a flawless chignon just may be your go-to style. Straight and smooth tresses can easily be revamped with volume and a twisted, textured low bun at the nape of the neck. For a finishing touch, thin curled tendrils by the visage can add a pretty and girlish effect.
