Dare to be different.
In a month or two, it’ll be time to shed those layers of heavy winter clothing. But don’t stop with your coats and sweaters. The impending arrival of spring is your cue to make a drastic hair change. After months of cold temperatures, we’re sure your manes could use a little rescuing anyway.
And sometimes, nothing brings hair back to life like a haircut. Cutting away dead and split ends, or shaving your head altogether will have new growth popping up like flowers in a spring pasture.[brightcove:5327124051001 default]
Even if you’ve managed to keep your hair healthy all winter, a new do may prove to be irresistible. If you’re really daring, try a shaved style.
