Summer Hair Trends

2013 Summer Hair

Super Sleek & Straight

Summer is just around the corner and it brings the time for bare legs, fun dresses, fun make-up and most of all fabulous hair. In this post we will look at hair trends for this summer.

Break out the GHD's because Straight is back in. Taylor Swift has been rocking straight locks for a while now with a blunt fringe and it looks fabulous. The key to great looking sleek hair is a good conditioner, I recommend John Freida Frizz Free conditioners. Straight hair has minimalistic effort, just remember to use a good heat defence spray.

Michael Kors showcased his S/S 13 range with models showing off fabulous, glossy poker straight hair.

Low Slung Buns

The key to this look is keeping it sleek, put your hair in a low pony then pinning it up with hair crips to suit your colour, then hairspray that baby! To keep your hair looking sleek but not scrunchy like a lot of hairspray can do to your hair try L'Oreal Elnett Hairspray which not only leaves you with a whole day look, it smells so nice. Beauty Hot Squad Tip: Try hair doughnuts to get perfect looking buns, Primark do a range of colours and sizes from just £1

The Messy Look

Low maintenance and quick. The key to this look is salt spray, now you can go out and spend your money on fancy branded salt sprays but I recommend buying a spray bottle (they sell them in pound shops) warm water and a couple of spoonfuls of sea salt. Mixing the water and the salt and spraying it on damp hair and leaving it to dry can give you the same effect. 

Braids and Plaits

Also a low maintenance look and can be made to look elegant or fun. So simple to do and no fancy products are needed. Braids can be fashionable and functional and an easy way to cover up a bad hair day.

"Braids in the Movies" 

Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence wowed us all as Katniss in 2012's The Hunger Games. Throughout the film sporting a fantastic outward cross-head braid. Showing us that a girl can kick butt and still have fabulous hair.
