    To keep your ends smooth, work a small amount of Organix Moroccan Argan Oil ($7) through the bottom half of your locks after you blow-dry.

There are plenty of inspiring ways to freshen up your hair this spring—try a new hue like Kate Bosworth, get a mid-length cut and bangs like Rihanna, or go colorful like Nicole Richie—but it turns out, you don’t have to opt for a big change to make an impact. While it may seem like half of Hollywood has either chopped or colored their locks, the other half has simply changed their part. Once reserved for models like Daria Werbowy and Jessica Hart, the ‘90s swoosh has become a full-on epidemic—and we couldn’t be happier. Trust us, you’ll want to jump on board.

Click through our slideshow for the products and inspiration you need to rock the swoosh.
