Now that spring is in full swing, it's time to freshen up your look!

And what better way to switch things up than to chop a few inches (or more) off your strands? After struggling with split ends and brittleness all winter, a new cut is just what you need to revitalize your day-to-day styling.

Manicured manes are stealing the spotlight this season and when it comes to rocking the look, the possibilities are fun and endless. We’ve spotted everything from tapered twist outs to TWA’s with bright pops of color, and they’ve got us ready to reach for the scissors and hair dye.
