The weather is warming up, and that means the WTG team is feeling that familiar itch for a new hairdo. And while trims and chin-length bobs are peachy options for spring, we thought we'd take the plunge into a more dramatic style this season: the bowl cut. And if you're worried about pulling off the look 'cause you're not Linda Evangelista, don't sweat it. This 'do is more versatile than you think, and there's a reason it's graced the faces of some of history's most BAMF ladies (enter Joan of Arc, Amelia Earhart and Rihanna as the dream trio you never knew you needed).

 "When I got [a bowl] cut it was like, I suddenly felt like I could wear anything," Shawna, a bowl-cut devotee, told WTG, "I was this blank canvas and it was really cool." One gander at street style darlings like Elisabeth Teixeira, and you'll find that Shawna's words ring even truer: the former's Instagram is jam-packed with outfits that showcase Teixeira's ability to be a style chameleon without ever feeling contrived. 

Need an extra nudge before you make the bowl cut plunge? Here are three sartorial styling tips to get you in the mood: 

With fewer locks on your head, take this as an opportunity to play-up volume elsewhere. We suggest going for puffy blouses covered in ruffles and toying with asymmetrical cuts.

Zendaya dazzled us at the 2016 Met Gala with her severely retro bowl cut. The late-70s hairstyle played perfectly with her form-fitting, one-shouldered choker dress.(whose golden hue was serving up Studio 54 realness). If you're down for a similarly bold style, know that you'll be able to pull off extra-sexy ensembles with an extra dose of nonchalance.

Because a short, graphic haircut will be the pièce de résistance of your minimalist aesthetic (especially if you've decided to dye your hair platinum blonde). You'll be able to rock a simple pair of palazzo pants, a plain t-shirt and a pair loafers, and make it look like a statement outfit with the utmost elegance.
