Summer Hair


For those of us in the southern hemisphere it’s the beginning of summer, and we all know what that means – hot, hot, hot, hot!


So we’ve pulled together the top 5 (don’t worry, they’re easy) hairstyles you can pull off to beat the heat this summer.


1. The Ponytail
The hairstyle you can literally whip up in less than 5 seconds. A simple, effective do that gets hair out of your face. Low or high, slick or messy, center part or side part – either will do.Tip – to make it a little more stylish, grab a 1cm strand from underneath, wrap it around the hair tie a few times and pin it back down with a bobby pin under the pony.



2. The braid
Again, another style that gets the hair out of your face and off the back of your neck. You can do this a variety of ways; one braid, two braids, the braids that go around your head or even one simple braid on the side of your head with the rest falling over the shoulder.

Tip – the best thing about braids (and plaits) is that you can undo them and you’ve instantly got waves. No need for a hot iron on a hot day

3. The bun
Be it messy or ballerina, low or high. Both are effective and look good. A simple flip your head, grab the hair, tie around and bobs your uncle. Easy.


4. Headbands and Hair slides
They’re all over the catwalks. Accessories that add a point of difference to a simple do.


Tip – these are the perfect accessories to add that little bit extra to your outfit (for any event; races, weddings, parties, gigs, festivals etc).


Any finally…


5. The Chop
This is for those who really want to beat the heat and go for a new look all together. It’s a big decision but it can also be the best decision.
It can give you a whole new attitude and style.

You’ve got the pixie cut, the classic bob, the just above the shoulders, the clavicle cut or the mid-length.


Tip – make sure you bring a few images on your phone with you to the hairdresser. Just so they know what you’re going for.
