    I don't know if it's because of Game of Thrones or the lightness of spring, but I'm seeing a lot of hair jewelry lately. I love how it looks, but how do you pull it off, exactly? There are so many different ways to style it. Well, the good news is that hair jewelry can be as simple -- or as elaborate -- as you want it to be. So if you've ever found yourself standing in front of a rack of rhinestone hair pins wondering where the heck to actually pin them, here are 18 beautiful hair jewelry looks to give you some inspiration.

    You know that casual, messy, yet perfect bun you sometimes see on women? It looks like they just twisted their hair up into that 'do with one swift movement. But then you go home and try to do the same thing and it looks all kinds of wrong. Dah! Why is the "messy" bun so hard to pull off?

    Well, it's not. We just need the right tutorial -- and I found it! After looking at several different versions, I've found my very favorite how-to for the mussed-just-right top knot, that bun that makes you look like an effortlessly chic femme from Paris. And best of all, I tried it out myself, and if I can pull it off, anyone can.

    My once-blond hair has been getting darker and darker, especially since I haven't had the time or the money to get it professionally highlighted. I have really thick, long hair, so not only does it take hours at the salon to get it done, but it costs hundreds of dollars too. (It doesn't help that I live in one of the most expensive cities in the whole country, either.)

    So in the interest of protecting my pocketbook and hectic schedule, I tried to lighten my hair myself.

    My first stop was the hair color section at my local Walgreens, but all the chemicals and the fear of screwing up scared me. And what happened to SunIn? I didn't see that anywhere!

    Instead I decided to try something I hadn't done since I was a teen: use lemon juice to give myself some natural highlights. How did I do it, you ask?

    Braids continue to be an extremely hot trend this spring, and for good reason. They are cool, versatile, an easy DIY alternative to the ponytail, and a way to keep your hair off of your face when temperatures rise, yet they still look funky. Unlike severe updos, braids don't have to be flawless to work. In fact, one of the greatest styles we've seen recently is the ultra-hip messy braid.

    You don't have to be a stylist to re-create this look at home. Simply grab an elastic band, hairspray, and a curling iron and follow these 11 steps to achieve messy braid perfection!

    Due to a variety of factors including the insanely cold winter we're finally coming out of -- I found myself in a major, MAJOR funk over the past few months. Actually, forget calling it a funk. Ever since last summer ended, I've been in a depression of sorts -- to the point where I kind of let myself go a little bit in regards to my appearance.

    (See how I was using my kid as a shield? Pathetic.)

    I'm a little ashamed to admit it, but I found myself in yoga pants on days when I had no intention of working out. I stopped putting on makeup every day. I gained weight. And I even started telling myself that because I'm in my late 30s -- it really didn't matter that my looks had gone in the gutter a little bit.

    But then a couple weeks ago, I made one teeny-tiny change to my appearance -- and suddenly I look and feel like a brand new person.

    OMG, you guys -- Kaley Cuoco cut her hair, and the end result is nothing short of fabulous!

    I know, I know -- celebs opting for shorter 'dos are pretty much a dime a dozen these days, so you're wondering why in the heck I'm getting all excited about this.

    Well, it's probably because Kaley's shorter hair has had the opposite effect on her appearance than what usually happens when women lop off a few inches.

    Check out these photos to see what I mean.

    Lauren Conrad rarely, if ever, makes a beauty or, let's face it, life mistake. The former The Hills star is kicking butt as a fashion designer, is engaged to musician William Tell, and is even a published author. For the past -- gosh, has it been a decade already? -- Lauren sported the typical beach blonde goddess hair of every California Girl wannabe's dream: long, loose, wavy, perfect.

    Well, the golden-haired princess just got a chop, and though we're grateful she didn't go for a bob or lob like every other celeb on earth, she did something that doesn't look quite right.

    Michelle Obama has killer style. Everything she wears sells out almost immediately. In fact, we credit this woman for the sleeveless trend that's STILL taking the nation by storm. Cut to me weeping and doing weight training exercises to turn my doughy arms into exquisitely sculpted treasures (spoiler alert: hasn't happened yet). This time it looks like Mrs. Obama is helping to spark another trend -- with her hair.

    She's not been afraid in the past to take risks with her tresses. And good for her! She's a fearless role model, who isn't afraid that playing with fashion and style will detract from the powerful messages she tries to share about health, fitness, and wellness through better eating. This time she pushed things to the extreme by dyeing her hair honey-blonde!

    Demi Lovato made some big changes to her look, and we kind of love what she's done in spite of ourselves. Demi shared photographs of her new haircut via Instagram, and they are jaw-dropping. No, she didn't go pixie, nor did she dye her hair some zany shade. Though, to be fair, it was already pink, which is pretty zany. Instead, Demi was the latest to try out what we're willing to go so far and call a new hair trend -- she shaved off half of her hair!

    Eep! On some folks, this cut would look like the barber was drunk at the clippers, but Demi is totally pulling it off. The asymmetrical look may not be for everyone, but it really emphasizes her high cheekbones in a great way and draws attention to her killer smile.

    To get bangs or not to get bangs -- that is the question. It seems like lately having a long, thick fringe (to get all British with it) is in vogue once again. Zooey Deschanel definitely paved the way with her signature hair look. But now other celebs at every level are trying them out! First Bachelor star and newlywed Catherine Giudici gave the bangin' look a try, and now actress Eva Longoria has debuted her cunning new cut.

    But bangs can be a major commitment. Sometimes you get the cut and immediately regret it. Then comes the most arduous part of the process: waiting for them to grow back out, ugh! But never fear folks. We live in a truly modern age, and now you can check out just how you look with bangs without going under the proverbial knife. Hallelujah!
