It’s hard to feel motivated to switch up your off-duty hair—that effort is often reserved for a big event or night on the town. But with the dawn of true spring looming, there’s no time like the present to alter your routine (if only slightly) and have fun getting creative with new daytime styles. Who better to turn to for inspiration than a gaggle of Victoria’s Secret models, known for their effortlessly good looks? Here, five stunners demonstrate casual hairdos to try this spring.
ALESSANDRA AMBROSIO’S BANDANA SCARF
If you prefer no-fuss, hair-down styles, tie a bandana scarf around your head (à la Alessandra) to break up the monotony of free-flowing locks. The playful look feels extra apropos for springtime.
BEHATI PRINSLOO’S MODERN PONYTAIL
Rethink your standard ponytail by tying an elastic or ribbon farther down your back rather than at nape of your neck or crown. The slightly disheveled effect allows more opportunity to play with sultry makeup and accessories, such as Behati’s tie choker.
ROMEE STRIJD’S DOUBLE FRENCH BRAIDS
A childhood fave, double plaits are making a swift return to the spotlight. This new iteration ditches its saccharine roots for a sporty vibe instead, feeling of-the-moment with an athleisure-inspired getup like Romee’s.
JASMINE TOOKES’ PIECEY PONY
Fully embrace the ’90s revival by sporting a moody, piecey version of a basic ponytail. Wispy, face-framing strands feel super retro with the addition of a thin choker, hoop earrings and dark lipstick like Jasmine’s.
STELLA MAXWELL’S HALF-UP STYLE
If you can’t decide between a bun or free-flowing locks, opt for a half-up ‘do. The cool-girl hybrid, as spotted on Stella, feels edgier than either of those extremes—plus it works well with the texture of second-day hair.
