This season everyone is going wild for messy beach head hair and super straight locks. Long tresses that can be styled chicly are the must-have accessory and some of the hottest trends are so easy to replicate, there is no excuse not to be on board the fashion wagon.
Even if you don’t have long hair you can still copy some of these looks by using hair extensions and clip in hair pieces.
So without further ado, here are the top 4 hair trends that will transform you from girl next door to catwalk queen.
This summer it’s all about carefree curls. Channel the beach vibe and get super sexy bedhead waves using a waving tong or wand. Here is a video tutorial to help you get a natural, wavy look and if you already have luscious curls, you’re one step ahead!
Low ponytail/fishtail plait
Who said that a ponytail is a little girl’s game? One of the hottest hairstyles is a low slung pony; it’s laid back, it’s simple and you can make it ultra glossy with some finishing serum. Everyone from Dior to Chloé has been featuring this trend but if you want to try something different, simply plait it into a fishtail for a unique style.
Super straight locks are back and better than ever. All the SS13 catwalks featured poker straight hair including Derek Lam and Lacoste (as pictured above) but make sure you use a good heat defence spray.
The key to a super straight look is to have the right tools consisting of a ceramic ion brush, a mixed bristle oval cushion brush to protect the scalp and most importantly, some professional titanium straightening irons.
Can’t be bothered styling your hair to perfection and just want to get it up and out of the way? This is the perfect solution. Low-slung buns are really easy to do and they are a favourite with the likes of Ralph Lauren, Erdem and Chanel.
Simply tie all your hair back into a low pony, twist it into a bun and then secure in place. It couldn’t be simpler! If you want to create a soft look, pull out some strands of hair to frame your face. Alternatively, keep it all slicked back for uber sophistication.
Now you have no excuse for not having fabulous looking long hair this summer. And don’t forget, you can still try many of these trends with the help of some extensions.
