Hot Summer Hair Trends

If you’re stuck in a hair rut and would like to mix things up for summer, then look no further. We have put together a helpful little guide on the hot hair trends for this season. So go forth, straighten, tousle and braid your hair to perfection for beautiful looking tresses this season!

Natural Un-Done Hair


Textured beach hair has been given an upgrade for 2016, with a sleeker more groomed overhaul. Think natural gentle waves, but with a glossy shine and without the crunchy sea salt texture.

To achieve this just washed look, add a serum, like Living Proof Satin Hair Serum through your mid lengths to the ends, before your blow dry. Then loosely tong and tease your hair, to create a premium beach look.


Straight and Sleek


Super sleek hair has made a comeback this year and to achieve this look, you will need to think about getting your hair in tip top condition. Healthy smooth locks start with a good shampoo and conditioner.

Look for products that are free from sulphates like Oribe’s incredibly scented Shampoo for Brilliant Shine and Brilliant Shine Conditioner, and aim to slather your hair an intense conditioning mask, such as, Malin + Goetz Intensive Hair Conditioner at least once a week.


Super Smooth Ponytails


Ponytails are one of the simplest hairstyles to master and are perfect for when you need to leave the house in a hurry. They are great for highlighting facial features, such as cheekbones and jawlines and can be styled numerous ways with curls, crimping or super straight ends.

To be on trend for summer 2016, keep your ponytail super smooth and minimal. For super smooth locks, blow dry your hair with Bumble and Bumble Straight Blow Dry Balm, before scooping your hair up into a pony and finishing with a light spritz of Flex Shaping Hairspray to keep those flyaways under control.


Low Buns

The rebellion against super high top knots is still going strong. Think loose twists of hair at the nape of the neck, placed either dead centre or to one side.

Like the ponytail, this look is super simple to achieve. Simply allow your hair to dry naturally, before blasting with a little dry shampoo, like Percy and Reed Invisible Dry Shampoo, to give your hair some grip and securing with a hair tie. Pull a few ends out here and there to keep things looking natural.


Alice Bands

Alice Band Hair

Alice bands are quite simply the most twee look of the summer! Make like Kate Middleton and adorn your head with the sloaney addition of a head band.

Other accessories to look out for this season include crowns and ribbons tied loosely round tousled locks.

Plaits are a perennial favourite for summer and this season is no exception. Style your plaits in intricate, chunky or relaxed styles, anything goes.

To be super on trend and forward looking for the next season, add slender peekaboo plaits to your everyday style and you’re good to go.
