3 Super-Easy Hairstyles For Spring!

When it comes to hair, you've gotta be pretty brave to lend your locks to a stranger with scissors. One scary slip of the snip can leave you looking like you've time warped back to the '80s. We've all been there, but to make sure you get the right mane magic, we've picked out the coolest—and easiest!—cuts and styles for spring and summer to leave you looking fresh and feeling hot.
1. Ombre Color: Whether you're rocking roots or intentionally dip-dyed ends, the ombre effect is a look that has been slowly (but surely) growing on us. Not only does two-toned hair look cool, but it's an easy alternative to maintaining your color— just grow out your roots! Salon Shizen is a Japanese Salon that specializes in hairstyling for magazines like Nylon and Foam. Whether you want a light to dark gradation or pink to purple, we're sure they'll leave you with a perfectly dyed 'do.
Salon Shizen: 627 East 6th Street, (between Avenue B and Avenue C); 212-777-2128, Prices: Cut with shampoo and blowdry: $65, Color: $75-$140
2. Wispy Bangs: If you're not ready to commit to a fully covered forehead but want some kind of fringe framing your face, the wispy bang is the perfect solution (and a fresh switch from the more severe bangs of winter). This look typically works better for all you straight-haired gals and creates that effortless "I just rolled out of bed" look. But unless you want to channel Cousin-It, bangs require a little maintenance and trimming. Fringe salon has got you covered by offering a free trim in between cuts. They've also got a "Bang ER" number for you to call just in case you've encountered a big bang emergency.
Fringe: 248 Broome Street, (between Ludlow and Orchard); 212-674-8383, Prices: $75 & up (free bang trim in between appointments)
3.The Undercut: We first saw the debut of the undercut on bad-ass Brit Alice Dellal. If you're going to go for a hard-edged hairdo like this, you've gotta know how to rock it. So, for all you edgy rock-chicks, this cut is a classic and Crops For Girls on the LES is the place to get it. Specializing in short cuts for girls, Crops for Cuts offers a free, that's right FREE, cut for anyone willing to go from Rapunzel to Tinkerbell.
Crops For Girls: 154 Orchard Street, (between Stanton and Rivington); 212-677-2772, Prices: Short Haircuts: $45-$50, Students: $30-$35
