As daffodils start to appear and we count down the days until the clocks go forward and British Summer Time officially begins (27th March) we’re fancying a new do to see in the new season. And boy are there some interesting styles to choose from…
- Colourful; we’ve done the statement colour look with our make-up and even worn clashing colours, or at least attempted to wear more colour with a brightly coloured handbag. But this season it’s all about making a statement with your hair colour. The dip-dye effect has been popular on the catwalk and has filtered down to the main stream with extreme versions (blonde hair with bright pink ends) and less extreme versions (brown hair with blonde highlights in the lower section of hair as opposed to starting from the roots). The most popular full head colour has to be red and we have the fabulous Christina Hendricks to thank for that! So how daring will you be?
- Frizzy crimp; a popular style on the catwalks for spring summer this look works particularly well with the season’s 70s styled hats. If you have naturally curly hair up the volume with hairspray to create a soft wispy finish. Those with straight hair will need to add volume by curling, crimping and even back combing. When worn with a hat the style can afford to be bigger and bolder than normal so that the texture is seen from underneath the brim. Finish the look with this fabulous Scoop Neck Jersey top and bootcut or flared jeans.
- Loose waves; summer style often includes laid back outfits like easy summer dresses and bo-ho styles that are perfectly accentuated by big loose curls or waves. Brunettes can even go for a few subtle highlights to distinguish the texture further.
- Undone bun; the messy up do was another hot look on the catwalk and can be easily achieved by spraying the hair and creating texture before you style. Up dos look great when a dress or top has an interesting neckline as it showcases the detail and doesn’t hide it under layers of hair. We think up dos are underrated as they keep our hair from getting in the way, and don’t require washing and styling everyday, plus this season’s relaxed styles means no need for perfection, hurray for up dos!
