No, your calendar has not been lying to you. Despite the recent blast of cold, winds, and snow (yes, really), spring is indeed here.

But, instead of the typical heatless-wave tutorials and pimple-cover-up tips (thanks for those, too, folks), we're focusing more on hairstyles and beauty looks that are perfect for spring. Think bright makeup colors, neon manicures, and a 60-second twist that even ladies who lob can pull off. Get ready to DIY in your bedroom. And, don't worry. Mother Nature will get the hint eventually.
