From big curls to simple side ponys, here are the hottest hair trends this summer.
Side Ponytail: Whether your hair is curly, frizzy or straight a side ponytail is an easy style to do a moment’s notice and is great for a lazy day in the sun as a bohemian babe or a wild night out with your favourate sparkly dress.
Natural Vanilla: The bedhead look is back! Stop trying to wrestle with your natural waves in morning with the stylers and take a leaf from the Spring/Summer catwalk by adding a few shades of Vanilla Blonde to your hair and leave it dry naturally to get this year’s ultimate summer style.
Sunkissed: The perfect antidote to a black and bleak Winter / Spring is to give the sun a helping hand with your hair by adding a few highlights a tone or two lighter than your natural hair, think Jennifer Aniston. Which will make your hair look more shiny and ready for the beach.
Rebel Red Waves: Wow stop the traffic this summer with the colour of the year, thanks to natural redheads Amy Adams and Paloma Faith working their natural rouge tones on the red carpet, the shade of red is back with a vengence and looks great with some light waves to add texture.
Short and Slick: The Pixie cut was the hairstyle of 2010 and this summer the grown out Pixie cut can look great by slicking back your fringe to the side and adding a simple hair accessory, a great androgynous look which was very popular on the catwalk this Spring.
Ballerina Buns: This chic look is very popular this year because of Oscar winning actress Natalie Portman’s portrayal of a ballerina with demons in Black Swan. This simple look is easy to do and is great for women with small delicate facial features.
Dip Dye: Play with colours this spring by adding a fun tone to ends of your hair. With Katy Perry and Lady Gaga going for the bright purple and gold colours this will be popular with the teens, however it is great for us grown ups too as we can follow Alexa Chung or Drew Barry more with a textured style and subtler natural coloured tips.
