It seems that as soon as March hit, I’ve been rapidly changing into spring preparation mode. From florals to stripes and bright colors, I can’t switch my wardrobe over fast enough. In addition to my wardrobe changes, I’ve been changing up my hair styling and makeup too. Instead of vampy colors, I’m opting for lighter and brighter hues and am opting for pretty and softer spring hairstyles like braids and buns.
I’ve also recently switched up my hair tools. One such switch is to the Goody Clean Radiance Oval Cushion Brush, which uses copper bristles to add smoothness and shine to even the most unruly hair. (Mine!) As you know, I’ve battled tangly, dry hair all winter long, and while it still likes to be a bit of a pain, I’ve noticed a tremendous improvement since adding it to my arsenal.
After smoothing in a hair oil and detangling my air dried hair, I run the Goody Clean Radiance Oval Cushion Brush all over until it glides through seamlessly and hair feels soft and smooth. It doesn’t take a whole lot either – I ran the brush through my hair Saturday afternoon, and it left my hair soft and smooth all the way through Sunday evening. I also have found that it prevents my hair from getting tangles throughout the day, regardless of what I’m wearing. For someone like me that is constantly plagued by knots, the brush has changed my hair game. Plus the scalp massage you get from the copper bristles isn’t bad either! ;)
My hairstyles wouldn’t be complete without some security too, and that’s why I’ve always used Goody Ouchless Elastics. Gone are the days of wincing when taking your hair out of a high bun or ponytail in fear of how much hair will be yanked out. I also love that the Ouchless Elastics come in a variety of sizes to suit any hair length, thickness, and style. Best of all, both products are available at budget-friendly prices at your local Target! Target also has some incredible Cartwheel deals for both products, and if you haven’t downloaded the Cartwheel app yet, you should! Just remember to search quickly for whatever you’ve picked up while you’re waiting in the checkout line and save big at the register. Super simple!

Speaking of simple, there’s nothing worse than overly complicated hair look that no one but a professional can accomplish! I opted to highlight three different spring hairstyles that are easy to manage for anyone from beginner to advance. If you’re like me, you much prefer to stay in bed for an extra 5 minutes rather then spend it on your hair, which is why each hairstyle shouldn’t take you any more than a few minutes to accomplish!
3 Spring Hairstyles to Love
Sounds complicated, but is actually super easy as long as you can get your hair into a ponytail and then braid it! I find that braiding the hair adds a fun twist to the traditional top knot, and you can make it look as polished or not as you’d like. I opted to pull some of the hair loose for a bit of a bohemian vibe in this one. See the full tutorial on my Instagram video!
Another super simple hair style, the volumized ponytail is a classic for all year round. I especially love the high ponytail with a little curl on the ends to bump up the volume and add a bit more polish to an everyday look.
This is the most complicated of the three because it requires a bit more dexterity and skill to keep the hair taut. At the crown of your head, split hair into three sections, then braid it down the back and secure it with a Goody Ouchless Elastic. You can also take it to the next level and incorporate the center braid into one larger braid too! For the slightly messy and romantic vibe, gently pull the braid loose.
What are your favorite hairstyles for spring? Have you tried the Goody Clean Radiance Oval Cushion Brush to add a little shine to your ‘do?
I love the braided bun, so cute!
Thanks so much Cara!
I LOVE this Goody Hairbrush! It’s really helped reduce the amount of buildup on my scalp from the dry winter (gross) and I’ve noticed it help restore some shine to my super damaged hair! And I totally agree; I’m all about the braids, loose waves and spring colors right now!
Seriously, it’s so great! I’m very impressed with the results and I haven’t even used it that long!
I miss my long hair! cute post :)
Love your cute braided bun! Any updates on the messy bun or basic pony are awesome — they’re my go-to hairstyle in the spring and summer!
Mine too! Glad you liked he braided bun. ;)
Love all these hairstyles! I always get Goody hairties!
I never think to do a braided bun. What a great idea! I have to wear my hair up for work so I’m always trying to find new easy styles.
Thanks Catherine! I htink it’s perfect for work – quick and super easy! :)
I need a decent brush. I love wearing my hair in a top bun!
Top knots are the best! :)
You have beautiful hair. Thanks for sharing! XO.
Thanks so much! :)
I’ve got pretty unruly hair, too, and the braided bun is definitely my go-to updo. No better way to keep wayward curls in check! I’m a big fan of half-up hairstyles for spring, though – so soft and pretty!
Half up hairstyles are great! I’m going to have to play around with more styles that are easy and quick for work! :)
How cute! I have always wished that I was a little better at doing my hair.
I have super thick hair and it’s a pain to do much with it. I’m a big fan of the high ponytail though!
The high ponytail is such a staple! :)
Loving the braided bun! So glad my hair is getting longer to do fun things!
Thanks Shane! :)

I love Ouchless hairties! Seriously, I don’t know what I did before them. Actually, I know what I did – I was in pain trying to get my hair out of a ponytail haha. I really love wearing braided buns during the springtime. They look so classy, and I love that my hair doesn’t get caught up in grossness when my neck sweats. Ew.
Ha, right?! Ouchless hair ties are one of the best ideas ever! Braided buns are definitely a must for when it’s hot out!
I love that braided bun! I need to give it a try. I am always loosing hairties, so I need to go grab some more- thanks for sharing the upcoming sales!
Hope you’re able to try it soon (and score some more ouchless hair ties on sale! :) )
