7 Fresh Haircuts To Pre-Pay For While Your Salon Is Closed

This past weekend, states across the country issued executive orders that personal-care businesses — including hair salons — must close indefinitely to help curb the spread of COVID-19. While skipping your hair appointment as a public-health precaution might feel like a small sacrifice for the greater good, the reality is that temporary shutdowns have a devastating impact on the small-business salon owners and stylists who are forced to suspend all operations.

To help your local salon stay afloat during these uncertain times, you can donate through GoFundMe (if they've set one up), buy a gift card, purchase your at-home hair products within their network, or simply pre-pay for your next cut. We recommend the latter, not only because it bolsters the salon, but pulling inspiration for your big post-isolation hair refresh also doubles as a distracting at-home project.

Ahead, seven trendy spring haircuts to bring to your pre-booked appointment — and to give you a little something to look forward to for the next few weeks.

Shoulder-Skimming Lob

A few weeks ago, Nine Zero One salon co-owner Nikki Lee posted this profile shot of Jennifer Love Hewitt and her perfect spring-refresh cut (and color) inspiration: a fresh shoulder-length bob and some "love lights."

Feathered Bangs

The breakout hair-trend prediction for 2020 was the return of the bang. Now, three months into the year, we're seeing that forecast play out in real time, with everyone from Dua Lipa to Selena Gomez sporting modern takes on the feathered fringe.

Long Layers

If you've been using the time at home to lean into a grow-out plan, you might consider freshening up your longer ends by adding some gradual layers for dimension, à la model Jasmine Tookes.

Tapered Cut

When it comes to natural hair, Mizani Global Educator Daryce Brown tells R29 that the tapered cut is a great way to keep length longer at the top, while maintaining a shape with a shorter trim to the sides and the back. "The tapered cut is a staple look that happens to be one of my most popular requests," Brown says.

Mid-Length Chop

If you have long hair, a spring-summer refresh can be as simple as bringing your ends up to your shoulders. You can plan to bring in a recent photo of Kate Middleton, or this glowing selfie of actress Ana de Armas.

Cheekbone Bob

Use your cheekbones as a point of reference for the length. The A-line, borderline pixie-cut bob can be classic and modelesque, like on Kaia Gerber, or a little more eccentric with bangs and butterfly clips, as evidenced by Grace VanderWaal.

Face-Framing Fringe

When you're not ready to commit to bangs, but still want to add a little something extra to your drab mid-length cut, plan to talk to your stylist about face-framing layers. They're long enough to be tucked behind your ears, but still provide that flattering emphasis around your jawline.
