Spring is in the air, and so is amazing style. With these expert tips in your toolkit this season, you'll be able to play up your hair's strengths while keeping your look polished and eye-catching—rain, wind, or shine. And as an added bonus, we tell you how to achieve one of the hottest looks we're seeing this season: the Sleek High Ponytail. It's the perfect way to show off your locks for a special spring event or to glam up a day at the office.

Spring Weather Concern: Wind + Moisture

Humid spring weather can cause hair to frizz, but the moist air and frequent wind of the season can also make hair fall flat. Keep hair looking its best with a scheduled trim from your stylist to add lift and movement to your style, and resist weighing down your tresses with heavy products. Try a lightweight shampoo and conditioner, like John Frieda® Luxurious Volume Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner to leave hair looking full, with natural movement.

Recommended Spring Look: Polished High-Ponytail

Wind-proof your style by creating a sophisticated look that was all over runway: a polished high pony. When blow-drying strands, use a round brush at the roots to add volume, and for extra-chic lift, back comb hair at the crown—your finished ponytail will look especially dramatic and red-carpet ready with this additional volume. After hair is dry, pull strands high up in back of your head. Double wrap the elastic for better hold, then wrap a section of hair around the band for a polished look. Lock in this style with a lightweight hairspray, and you're ready for a cool, spring night on the town.
