Endless Summer Hair Styles

Endless Summer Hair Styles: Summer is almost here and it’s the perfect time to change up and revamp your look for the new season. With the sun out, it’s also a great time for clients to step away from the heated styling tools, embrace their natural hair texture and experiment with more low maintenance, effortless looks to avoid more damage being done to their hair, whilst giving their look a fun, summer feel. 

Here are my predictions on what will be the hottest haircuts and styling trends this season…

Blunt bobs – For those who want a chic summer look the blunt bob is perfect. 

The great thing about this style is that it can be styled more polished and sleek or more messy and effortless, depending on your preference. If you have coloured hair, styling the bob sleek is a great way to really show off and enhance the hair colour. 

This haircut also works particularly well for those with thin hair, giving the appearance of more volume. However, this cut generally looks great on everyone. The style can also be tailored to suit each individual, for example, for those with round face shapes who may want to give their face shape a more elongated look, the bob can be taken a little longer in length.

Contrastingly, those with oval face shapes may want to wear their bob a little shorter. Fringes also look incredible teamed with this cut and can give the look a further on trend finish. A fringe also looks great incorporated into this cut.

Mullets – for those who like a longer, more textured and effortless looking cut, the mullet is a fantastic choice and is one of the most talked about trends this year. 

The key with this look is having it shorter on top and longer at the back, however, we are seeing a more modern approach with the cut including softer layers and the addition of face framing and fringes to give the look a softer appearance and a fresh feel. 

This is a great haircut choice for those who want to do little to no styling to their hair, as it can instantly be given a sexy finish by misting through some salt spray and scrunching it into the hair.

Texture – textured looks will become a major trend this season with textured, beach like waves being one of the most prominent textured hairstyling trends.

This look can easily be created by using a texture spray or mousse in damp hair and scrunching it into the hair before leaving to air dry. 

However, to create a more ‘s’ like wave, hair wavers are great for creating this look before finishing off with a volume or texturising spray to give the style a more gritty, effortless appearance, as well as hold. 

Effortless updos – during summer people will want to wear their hair out of their faces and this can be easily achieved with effortless updos.

Think braids, low slung buns and pinned updos that take all of the hair back off the face and that suit the laid back, summer vibe.

Defined curls – summer is the time to embrace your natural hair texture and show off gorgeous curls in all their glory.

A hair diffuser is great for taking away frizz and flyaways in curly hair and giving curls more definition, however, there are also so many fantastic curl products that can be used to help create a similar look whilst giving curls more body and shine.
