Summer Haircuts and Must Have Products in 2019
We are seeing less of the boyfriend bob and more of the blunt bob as seen on celebrities like Fern Cotton, Kendall Jenner and Dua Lipa. The best thing about the blunt bob cut is it is versatile and can be adapted to flatter most face shapes. We have been cutting a lot of these in the salon this season and here is what we think.
The cut length can be adjusted to flatter your face shapes.
The bluntness of the cut helps to thicken up thin hair and softens thick hair depending upon the way you want it styled.
This cut does wonders for bone structure and can give you the confidence to try shorter hair gradually.
It can be drastic to go from long to short hair so our top stylists are on-hand to show you the different ways of styling your new hair.
We all want to relax and enjoy our summer. So if you are not after a new look or a total re-style, why not add easy layers to your long hair? Layering your hair is the best way to add movement, texture and shape without losing too much of your length.
This cut is suited to most hair textures and works well if you have natural waves in your hair. You can get those layers to really pop by asking your stylist to add a few face-framing layers to highlight your best facial features.
If you are after a low-maintenance tousled look, the shag cut is ideal for you! This haircut requires little or no styling and gives you the rocker chic (just out of bed look). You also have the choice of getting this look without a fringe. To give our clients this look we cut their hair using internal and/or shattered layers.
Smooth and Sleek Hair
If you are after a smooth sleek hair we recommend a once weekly blow-dry. Your stylist can use an anti frizzy booster or a sleek finisher that can help keep your smooth straight look last even longer.
If you have naturally curly hair and are after longer lasting smooth hair we suggest you get a keratin smooth treatment. The advantage of keratin smoothing treatment is that it seals the hair cuticle with a coating of protein that eliminates frizz, and adds softness and shine. If you are going to try this make sure you have time as the process can take anywhere between 1 and 5 hours depending on hair type, length, and fullness.
Olaplex has brought out two “must have” products that will help you to tame your frizzy hair this summer. Olaplex 6 is a leave-in styling cream that repairs and hydrates your hair while eliminating frizz. This leave-in cream is concentrated and works well on all hair types. The best things about this product is that it speeds up the blow drying time while smoothing and getting rid of frizz for up to 72 hours.
Olaplex 7 is a bonding oil. We love this product as it is light on your hair. It helps to repair and strengthen your hair and offers heat protection for up to 450 F. It promises to increase shine, makes your hair soft and makes your colour brighter. It has only been out for a few months so why not try it and see?
We have been using a lot of the Maria Nila vegan, sulphate, paragon and cruelty free shampoo and conditioner in the salon but we are most excited about their new range for blonde hair. They have launched a blonding range and the sheer silver shampoo does not stay long on our shelves! The blonde pigment and blackberry extract in the blonde shampoo helps to neutralise the golden shades in bright hair. The colour complex is great for maintaining and keeping your hair colour looking good.
