In need of hot hair for summer? We’ve been checking out the cutting edge hair trends straight from the S/S 17 catwalks and believe us there’s plenty to choose from. Keep reading to find out our favourite styles.

 

Boho Hair for Festivals

 

Boho hair is the perfect summer hair style plus 70s fashion is having a revival at the moment, so this should be your go to look for festivals this year. Try loose waves, plaits and braids, for effortlessly cool tresses. To achieve this relaxed image, prep hair with ghd’s Curl Hold Spray then curl using straighteners – we love the new GHD Platinum Tropic Sky Styler. After curling, brush through from root to tip for a soft wavy finish and braid small random sections for a hippie 70s vibe.

 

Wild Girl Curls for Summer

 

2017 is definitely the year to embrace the natural texture of your hair and pretty much let it do its thing. 70s disco curls, 80s power curls and the 90s wave are all bang on trend so take your pick. Want lots of volume? Try big bouncy curls for a fun summery feel.

 

Poker Straight for Sleek & Chic Locks

If you’re after a sleek and polished do’, than reach for the straighteners as the 90’s poker straight trend is making a comeback. Quite possibly the easiest style to master, this look was seen all over the S/S 17 catwalks and oozed glamour and sophistication. To achieve this glossy style, use a good heat protection and once you’ve finished with the straighteners, apply Eimi’s Brilliant cream to smooth down flyaways.

 

Top 3 Hair Styling Tips

Prep: The key to all of these trends is proper prep work. Apply Eimi’s Shape Me 48h before blow drying to ensure lasting hold.

Heat Protection: Always apply a heat protection product when using heat styling tools. We recommend Eimi’s Thermal Image.

Hold: Want your style to last all day/night? Then you need a good quality hairspray to set your hair once you’ve finished styling. We love Eimi Stay Styled.

 

Pastel Colour Tresses

Pastel colours are so much fun and adored by celebrities. We love it when a client comes in for a pastel transformation. The good news? The trend is here to stay! As we enter festival season we can expect to see more bubble gum pinks and mermaid blues, however if you want a more subtle hint of colour we suggest the peek-a-boo technique. Cleverly hidden pops of colour peeking through when you’re feeling playful. This effect also looks stunning in a hair braid or plait.

 

Copper & Peachy Hues

Copper and peachy hues are so flattering and the perfect shade for summer. They warm up most skin complexions and there are various tones available depending on how bold you feel. Fancy something fiery? Choose a deep Copper shade like Emma Stone for vibrancy. Or create some subtle warmth with peachy, golden tones like Amy Adams.

 

Warm Brunette Tones

It may be spring but it doesn’t mean you have to lighten up. The classic brunette is a popular colour all year round and perfect for those wanting something different from the typical beachy highlights. Chocolate and Espresso shades are incredibly rich and provide a super glossy finish as seen on Kendall Jenner. Pick either warm or cool tones; both look luxurious and classy.

 

Prevent Colour Fade with Olaplex

Whatever colour you choose this year, protect it from colour fade. We recommend adding a colour saving treatment such as Olaplex which is described as insurance for your hair. The miracle formula helps prevent hair breakage and makes your colour last longer, keeping your hair fresh and vivid, like you’ve just stepped out of the salon.
