Looking to turn up the heat on your hairstyle? The warm spring and summer months are the perfect time to go wild with your hair. Whether it's a platinum blond pixie cut, trying out a cone-shaped curling iron, or giving bangs a go, Hollywood's hotlist is always on the cutting edge of style trends.

If you're not sure about getting bangs, try out clip-in bangs, available at beauty supply stores.

Pomp it up

Men and women have been sporting these punky styles for a couple of years now, but the pomp actually dates to the 18th century and was named for Madame de Pompadour, mistress of King Louis XV. Pompadours are a great style to rock for a special event because you can create a pomp with many lengths and styles of hair.

Similar to the Pompadour, the rave shave is an edgier version of the style where both sides of the hair are actually shaved, rather than slicked back as in a Pompadour. Raves became popular in the 1990s, and are basically dance parties with psychedelic music and lights.
