Is it just us or did winter seem to have an extra couple of months added onto it? However, spring is finally here, and it’s time to shed the heavy coats, don the sunglasses and explore some new hairstyles for the upcoming season. Here at Additional Lengths, we love taking a peek at what styles were favoured on the catwalks over fashion week and reporting back on what we’ve discovered. So let’s take a look at a few hairstyles and hair trends for 2017 we’re excited to see for spring.
Switch up that parting
Changing your parting is such an easy way to restyle your hair. There’s no commitment or cost to it! Plus, it works well with what ever length of hair. A side parting with poker straight hair is such a sleek look, it’s perfect for taking you from the boardroom to the dancefloor.

Some side parting hairstyle tips:
- Help hair stick to the new parting by blow drying it in the direction of the part
- Tuck one side behind your ear and hold in place with a bobby pin
- Use a hair serum, such as the GHD Smooth & Finish Serum, to add shine and finish with a spritz of hairspray
Enjoy your new side parting, but just be sure to not take experimentation too far – need we remind you of the 90’s zig zag parting? Yikes.
How high can you go?
This spring season is without a doubt focused on the simple high ponytail. Hair extensions can really elevate a ponytail from drab to fab with it’s addition of shiny length. Gain some extra height by bending your head downwards and gathering the hair into a hair tie at the crown, then smoothing down the flat parts with a little serum or hairspray to keep flyaways tamed. Add a metallic hair accessory for an on-trend finish, or wrap a small section of hair around the base of the pony to hide the hair tie and bring the look up to date.
The clip-in hair extensions and clip-in ponytails available here at Additional Lengths would be a good way to begin that sky high ponytail.
Waved hair gives the illusion of volume, enhances texture and depth whilst looking carefully styled. And it’s a spring hairstyle that every girl can get on board with. To create gorgeous waves, we recommend using a hair wand, such as the GHD Curve Classic Wave Wand which provides the perfect styling tool to achieve long lasting soft waves. Start from the mid lengths and leave an inch or two at the ends for natural looking waves.
A totally effortless way to get luxurious bohemian-style waves? Premium quality human hair extensions from Remi Cachet. With their collection of beautiful real hair extensions you’re able to sit back and enjoy the process of gaining some exceptional style added to your own hair.

We’re not talking just any braids, but the elusive fish tail braid. It’s a great take on the traditional three section braid, but slightly more time consuming. But the extra time spent on it definitely pays off! Work some texturising spray onto the hair before beginning and roughen up the finished look for a slightly lived-in hairstyle that screams ‘I woke up like this’.
Last season models on the catwalk sported mini plaits as a way to add texture to the hair. Next time you decide to wear your hair loose, why not try a few randomly placed micro braids to jazz it up? You could also take the braid all the way from ear to ear, in a hairband style for a cute casual hairstyle.
The ombre hair colour trend is still proving popular, and we love the sun bleached ends look. A carefully executed root stretch can also provide the lighter look if you’re keen to add some soft depth to your current hair colour. We’re also loving the strawberry blonde trend, a la superstar Adele, which warms up the face and creates a golden glow, making it perfect for pale skinned goddesses. Jesy Nelson from the hottest band around Little Mix has also been experimenting with this popular shade.
You could also take a walk on the wilder side of spring by deferring from the usual lighter route, and go darker. Chocolate brown is a delicious shade favoured by models such as Kendal Jenner and Bella Hadid who live for the ultimate shiny dark hair style.
