8 Kawaii Hairstyles You Can Pull Off For A Perfect Spring Getaway

Published on Apr 05, 2019

The onset of April brings to mind blooming flowers... particularly cherry blossoms!

If you're heading to Japan, Korea and I hear even parts of Europe (e.g. Rome) and the US (e.g. Washington DC), you may be able to spot some sakura as the weather starts to warm in these countries.

Don't just pack cold clothes though to prepare your spring getaway...

Consider changing up your hairstyle to get it ready for that Insta-worthy shot you've been dreaming about. 

Feeling uninspired? We got you covered.

P.S. Even if you're not heading overseas, you can still adopt these hairstyles to make yourself look more kawaii and turn back the time for a softer, more feminine look!

1. Soft waves


When you think of spring and its softness, what's the first hairstyle you think about?

Waves are bound to be one of the first hairstyles to come to mind.

The name suggests that it has some red or pink tones, but it's really quite subtle. It's a mix of pink and blonde that almost looks like ginger.

7. Ash Coral


An easy way to stay on trend is to follow Pantone's colour of the year.

Coral may be too bright for spring, but if you add some ashy tones to it, it'll be perfect.

This looks similar to rose gold and it lasts longer than pinks because of the stronger reddish pigment.

8. Lavender


If pink is too kawaii for you, another colour that matches really well with spring is lavender. 

On top of complementing the cherry blossoms around you, it can go really well with the budding lavender flowers for the dreamy look.
