From trending styles to must-have products to happy hair hacks, we’ve gathered a list of spring break hair essentials. No matter what cut or color you’re rocking this season, keep reading to master the art of vacation-ready hair.


Spring Break Hair Trends

Wispy Bangs and Curtain Bangs

If you have bang FOMO, don’t worry – the trend will stick around this spring! Whether you prefer thinner bangs with a wispy vibe or full-blow curtain bangs, these face-framers are the perfect way to shake up your usual look.

Bangs usually need to be styled every day, so lifting products like the Volume Blow Dry Spray will come in handy.

Lived-In Highlights

Is it really springtime if bright highlights don’t make a comeback? This sunny style is perfect for warm weather and beach vacations, but more lived-in shades are all the rage right now.


Plus, by blending your natural color with lighter streaks, you can worry less about color maintenance. But if you do find yourself stressed about fading, consider switching to color-safe products, like everything in the Colorproof collection!

Blunt Bobs

Sharp chops embody the ‘fresh start’ energy of spring. And, on top of being trendy, blunt bobs are also great for hair health! By chopping off those dry, damaged ends, you can kickstart your hair’s springtime revitalization for happy strands all year long.

Long Layers

Love your long hair too much to let it go? A blunt bob isn’t the only way to make a statement this spring. You can also breathe new life into your look with long layers, AKA curtain bangs’ stylish companion.

The key to styling long layers is a great blowout, so consider using volumizers like the Biorepair Thicken Blow Dry Spray or the Lift It Mousse!

Essential Hair Products for Spring

Frizz Fighters

With warmer weather and tropical trips, frizz is a natural part of springtime hair. But you don’t have to accept frizzy hair as your fate forever!

Two of our best-selling products tackle frizz at the scalp level: Smooth Shampoo and Smooth Conditioner, which lock in moisture and shine for lasting silkiness.

When it comes to styling, the Moisture Styling Crème offers heat protection with a nourishing humidity shield. Similarly, our Humidity Rx® Style Lock Spray combats humidity, boosts natural curl patterns and reduces frizz all at once.

Finally, the Cuticle Closer Smoothing Treatment adds shine and fluidity. Use it as a rinse-out in the shower for a boost of frizz-fighting gloss!


With humidity, frizz isn’t your only problem. Flat hair is also common this time of year.

So whether your hair is long or short, volumizing is a must for spring break hair. While the Volume Blow Dry Spray and Lift It Mousse we mentioned are great for styling, our Volume Shampoo and Volume Conditioner boost volume at the root. Start using them now to maximize their power ahead of your vacation!

Scalp Savers

If you’re still battling winter hair woes like dryness and itchiness, now is a great time to zero in on hair health. We always recommend focusing on scalp health, as it can help your hair thrive on multiple fronts – frizz and volume included.

Our Biorepair Thicken collection is perfect for this goal! The Biorepair Thicken Shampoo, Biorepair Thicken Conditioner and Biorepair® Thicken Scalp Serum all stimulate and exfoliate the scalp, energizing your strands and repairing weak hair.

To help your scalp even more, consider massaging your skin with the Cleansing Scalp Brush or the Exfoliating Scalp Brush.

Visiting the Salon? Rehab Your Strands First

Many of us are counting down ‘til our first spring salon visit. If you plan to bleach or lighten your hair, be sure to nourish your strands before taking to the chair!

For damaged or dry hair, the Baobab Recovery collection will be your friend. Specifically designed for fragile, color-treated hair, the Baobab Recovery Shampoo, Baobab Recovery Conditioner and Baobab Recovery Treatment Spray nourish and revitalize any type of hair.

Moisture will set you up for salon success, too. In addition to the Moisture Shampoo and Moisture Conditioner, our Moisture Masque is perfect for protecting your hair with a boost of hydration.

Embrace Your Natural Texture

It’s hard to overstate the impact of #curltok. Will this be the season you reclaim your natural texture? If you’re traveling somewhere tropical, the climate will create the perfect conditions for natural curls and waves.

But no matter when or where you commit to curls, you’ll have to consider two things.

First, use as little heat as possible on your hair. We know styling without heat might sound impossible, but it’s worth it for the texture! Heat-free styling products like our Plush Locks Leave-In Smooth with help, too.

Second, you’ll have to commit to using curl-specific products. Our Curl Shampoo and Curl Conditioner will get you started, as well as stylers like the Tru Curl Enhancing Créme.

Pro-tip: even if you can’t commit to a full curl routine, avoiding heat will help tame frizz and boost volume for picture-perfect springtime hair!

Clean Your Tools

Finally, in the spirit of spring cleaning, now is the perfect time to refresh your styling tools.

An easy DIY cleaning solution for hot tools is 3 parts baking soda to 1 part water. Mix it together, then use a rag or paper towel to gently scrub the metal parts of your curling iron and straightener. Wipe it off with a clean, damp cloth, and voila! Your heat tools are as good as new.

To clean your hair dryer, remove the filter, place it under running water and wait for it to dry before putting it back on. If you can’t remove the filter, a toothbrush can help you remove dirt and dust by hand.

We can’t wait to see all your stunning spring vacation hairstyles! As always, be sure to follow us on Instagram and TikTok (@colorproofhair) and share your Colorproof success stories with us using the hashtag #ColorproofHair.
