Spring is nearly here, and the time has never been better to start thinking about fresh new hair trends. Windswept hairstyles were a big deal during the Spring 2014 Fashion Weeks on both sides of the Atlantic and are set to be a huge trend this season. Above, you'll find a gallery full of wispy, romantic hairstyles that will hopefully inspire you to try a windswept updo of your very own!

Buns and chignons

A super simple way to get the windswept look is with a casual updo. By that, we mean buns and other similarly easy styles that can be whipped up in a matter of minutes. Once your chosen updo is complete, don't hesitate to tease a few strands loose for a truly relaxed feel. You can also add a few floral accessories for a really feminine look!

Styling tip - Apply Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray to your roots and massage with your fingertips. This will create extra lift and volume before you even begin your updo!

Braided beauties

Braided hairstyles, especially a tousled French-braid right down the back of the head, are a gorgeous way to work windswept hair. This look works especially well when braided loosely on relaxed, tousled waves.

Styling tip - Incorporate some waves into your hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray. Apply it evenly through damp or dry hair. Take a half-inch section of hair and twist it, then blow-dry. Finger-comb the twist to reveal some loose waves. Repeat on the rest of your hair, respray and scrunch.

Pretty ponies

As with buns and chignons, a casual ponytail is a simple yet very effective way to wear your hair in a windswept style. The styling technique is essentially the same, and you can even tease the pony a little for extra volume. Just make sure you check out our damage-free teasing guide before you start!

Styling tip - After securing your hair into a pony, use a comb to tease and muss the top and sides of your hair for a super wispy mohair look. Fix with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and use your hands for any last minute touch-ups.
