In the spirit of honesty, we'd like to disclose that there is no "right" way to kick off a new season. But in Spring, it's certainly not not sprinkling your iCal with al fresco brunches and outdoor concerts (then immediately online-ordering a brand-new wardrobe to wear to all of the above). The itch to get moving tends to rise with the temperature, and you want your hair to match that energy. The only prerequisite to firing up the group chat, then, is to book yourself a haircut.
Here's what you should ask for, boiled down to one word: movement. "Every time Spring comes along, hair tends to get more layered," said master hairstylist Edward Tricomi of Warren Tricomi Salons. "In Winter, styles are sleeker and straighter, but that's harder to accomplish in the warmer months. With more humidity, you need more movement because your hair will swell more."
