Best Summer Styles

With all the hot weather we’ve had recently and with holidays to look forward to, we round up the best styles for Summer.

  1. Beach Waves

A classic, beach waves are always a summer staple style, and being the easiest to create are prefect for hot summer days and evenings.  Simply spritz in some label.m sea salt spray and allow to air dry, or for more unruly coarser hair spray some Alterna Kendi Dry Oil Mist or some Alterna Caviar Moisture Milk through the ends and twist in to shape before letting your hair dry naturally.

 

2. Baby Braids

One step on from the beach waves is baby braids, style your hair in to beach waves and then braid some small pieces throughout your hair to add interest.  If you really want to amp it up you can add in ribbon or coloured extensions.

 

3. Braided Bun

The best style for looking effortlessly cool even though you’re melting! The head band added here just gives it a more polished finish.

 

4.  Accessories

Our absolute favourite! Accessories finish any hairstyle and with so many available to choose from it’s too easy to add in to your hair.

Men’s Fashion Week – The Hair

We scrolled through all the images of Men’s Fashion Week to check the trends set to show up in men’s hair.  Good news if you like your hair short the buzz cut is going nowhere! Also still going strong is the longer textured cut, but if you like to stand out that little bit more our favourite are the styles with the short close sides and heavier longer fringe.

However if you’re not that brave you could try this version.

Festival Hair

We scoured the internet for the best festival hair inspiration to see you through the season.  Some of these looks can be created by yourself at home, others are a bit more difficult, but you can come see us for that!

  1.  The Pixie

Probably the most perfect style for festivals, up and out of the way for when you know you won’t be washing your hair for a few days.  The Pixie is knotted braids with your baby hair left out, it’s a style that you don’t want to be too perfect and looks effortlessly cool. The Pixie is available in salon as part of our Fashion Fix dry styling menu priced at £20.

 

2. The Braided Top Knot

Create this festival style by taking a large triangle section on the top front of your head and french plait it towards the crown leaving the hair outside the triangle down, once you’ve secured the braid create a top knot with the top half of your hair including the sides.  Add a bit of colour with Label.m Highlighting Toners available in the salon for £10.95

 

3. Glitter Roots
