Spring is a time for fresh beginnings, and nothing refreshes your look quite like a new hairdo. Luckily, the S/S 20 runways were rife with hair inspiration, giving us a glimpse into the biggest hair trends that are set to be all over our Insta feeds in just a few months. According to the runways, retro '70s styles will reign supreme, braided pigtails will be our new go-to paired with work suits (yes, they're all grown up), deep side parts are a must, and out-of-the-ordinary pearl and crystal embellishments will unquestionably add a pretty, of-the-moment touch for all your spring soirées.

Scroll below as we share the biggest spring/summer 2020 hair trends that you can try right now, and shop the products to achieve the looks.

1. Wet-Hair Look

Chic and shiny slicked-back hair was prevalent on the spring runways, seen everywhere from Chanel to Lanvin and Carolina Herrera. The fierce style can easily be achieved no matter your hair length. All you need is a generous amount of hair gel combed through from root to tip with a fine-tooth comb or boar-bristle brush, a glossing spray, and a shine-enhancing hair spray to hold it all together.

2. '70s-Inspired

The '70s made a huge mark on the runways, and hair unquestionably got the retro touch too. From textured shaggy waves at Celine to afros at Chanel, think back to the era for inspo but with a modern touch.

3. Deep Side Parts

It's time to try a razor-sharp side part in 2020. We saw deep side parts on just about every spring runway. At Chanel, they were slicked back; at Tory Burch, they were inspired by Princess Diana's locks; and at Michael Kors, hair was free-flowing.

4. Grown-Up Braided Pigtails

Can we really get away with braided pigtails at work without looking, well, 5 years old? The runways convinced us that we really can. Braided pigtails were paired with sophisticated suits and sharp tailoring and held together with seamless hair ties. This is a refreshingly cool and easy one to try and will exude an of-the-moment touch to your spring look.

5. Heavily Embellished 

From pearls to crystals, beads to gems, bows to flowers, shiny waves, braids, and buns were heavily embellished with hair combs, pins, clips, and pretty adornments providing imaginative inspo for our upcoming spring and summer weddings, music festivals, and soirées.

6. Low Ponytails

It's time to go low. Long locks were slicked back and tied low at the nape of the neck, often secured with chic accessories such as leather hair ties and black ribbons. This is an easy one to replicate at home with a flat iron and de-frizz serum and spray.
