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

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.

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

Glitter roots has to be the easiest look to recreate, just apply some gel to your roots and apply the glitter! The grey colour here really works for this style but if you have pre lightened hair we have a huge range of beautiful bespoke pastel shades, vibrant rainbow shades and neon/U.V colours, available in salon starting from £20. *Skin test required for colour services*

 

4. Soft Loose Braidsfestival hair

If you love the floaty romantic side of the festival vibe then these looks are for you.  You can even add accessories to make it even more romantic!

 

We will definitely be trying out all these styles this summer, we might even add a pop of colour too!

The Best Fashion Week Hair

Now the shows have finished for another season we thought we would put our absolute favourite hair looks from across all the big four fashion weeks New York, London, Milan and Paris in one place.  We will be prepared with all our hair looks for Autumn/Winter 17/18.

 

A common theme running throughout the shows was the centre part, perfectly clean and crisp every time.  The best way to achieve this is to use a pin tail comb and put the parting in when the hair is wet and then dry your hair in to place making sure the part remains.

The look we most want to recreate is the wavy textured pony tails we saw at burberry, perfect for Summer as well as Autumn/Winter, and definitely one you can recreate your self with a sea salt spray and texturisier.

Second to that was the super natural waves at Fendi.  Easy to recreate quickly in the morning before work.  Sea salt spray is going to be our must have product for this season!

We loved the braids at Antonio Beradi, messy and textured we might pinch this one for summer too! (sea salt spray again!)

So we’ll be all sea salt spray, waves, braids and pony tails next time you see us!

 

 

London Fashion Week – The Hair

As London fashion week comes to a close, we look at our favourite hair looks from all of the shows and have a look at what will be big hair wise for AW17.
We saw natural waves both on and off the catwalk this year, and it seems this soft well loved style isn’t going anywhere in 2017 so keep hold of your wave wand!  We also noticed that the centre part one of the  most notable styles for the last few seasons was back in full force this season, especially when worked with the super sleek pony tails we saw last week in New York.

Wet look finger waves were the order of the day at Judy Wu, a continuation of the baby hair trend, just pushed a little further.

We also particularly liked the hair at Antonio Berardi, textured, tousled waves with braids woven in, and knots worked through the texture of the waves.

Overall the hair looks that we think we will be wearing in AW 17 will be the knotted braids and the sleek pony tails.
