Summer Strand Struggles: Our Guide To Heatwave Hair

Summer ushers in the promise of long hazy nights and sunny days languishing on sandy shores with perfect mermaid hair.

However, we all know that the summer sun can bring in a whole new wave of issues when it comes to taking your hair from the beach to the club, dealing with humidity on the commute or even the joys of office air con.

From frizzy hair problems to dry ends and lack of volume, our cheat guide to Heatwave Hair is going to unpack the main ways in which you can combat summer strand struggles and maintain a tousled je ne sais quoi about your coiffure. Move over swamp monster from the deep and hello Brigitte Bardot!

Hair Mists, Sprays & Perfumes

There’s such a wide range of hair mists, sprays and perfumes on the market that it can be hard to know where to begin. We’ve picked a few of our favourites for the season below.

Looking for bounce and volume?

Reach for a Hair Mist! Hair mists contain a variety of different minerals and vitamins designed to strengthen and enrich your hair. Italian brand Davines uses turnip extract in it’s Volu mist to provide hair with vitamins A, B and C.
Davines - Volu Hair MistTo use, spray Davines Volu (RRP £25.15 Our Price £22.45) onto towel dried hair to add volume and shine. This product can be used on all hair types but is especially effective on fine or limp hair

Looking to add texture?

Maybe you should try a hair salt spray! Salt Sprays are great for adding waves and movement to your hair for that tousled beach siren look.

Alterna Caviar Style  Sea Salt Spray  (RRP £29.50 Our Price £17.95) can be used when air drying your hair and helps to protect hair from heat.
Alterna Caviar Style Sea Salt SprayDead Sea Salt adds body and waves whilst Caviar extracts help to add shine and prevent dryness. Use on damp hair.

Looking to scent your hair?

Are you a classic beauty who is fond of spritzing your favourite fragrance on your hair? You could be doing yourself a disservice due to the higher alcohol content in perfumes which have the potential to dry out your hair. Hair perfumes, sometimes also referred to as mists, are especially formulated for hair, meaning that you can protect and hydrate your hair whilst also smelling fabulous – something to consider if you suffer from dehydrated locks. Sachajuan’s protective hair perfume 50ml helps protect against static and uses ocean silk technology to provide UV protection. It’s also great for when you want to freshen up your hair without reaching for the dry shampoo. Dior, Yves Saint Laurent and Mugler have also formulated hair-friendly versions of some of their cult scents.

Hair Oils

Hair oils are great for hydrating dry strands, controlling frizz and preventing split ends from forming. Kérastase’s new Soleil Huile Sirene (literally translated as sunshine mermaid oil) is a beach bi-phase oil mist which offers softness, subtle scent and shine for hair exposed to sun, salt and UV rays. Been on a speedboat or on a summer hike? Use hair oil sparingly to smooth over any stray hairs to refine your look and add a bit of shine.

Dry Shampoo

Of course, there are some moments in life when you need to get rid of excess oil in a hurry. Dry Shampoo is a key product to pack with you for festivals and glamping or even when you need an extra bit of volume for hair flattened by humidity . A spritz of dry shampoo at the roots goes a long way – just spray and massage into your scalp for sneaky styling on the go.

Masks & Shampoos for weekend repair

Is your hair showing signs of water damage from chlorine or seawater? Deep recovery and cleansing treatments can help to replenish hydration – we recommend masks enriched with coconut (vitamin B and potassium) for hydration and cleansing the scalp of product and environmental build up.

These Are The LFW Hair Trends You Need To Know About

These Are The 2019 London Fashion Week Hair Trends You NEED To Know About

We’ve teamed up with Official Haircare Product Providers label.m to bring you some of our favourite hair trends from London Fashion Week 2019! 

Proffessional haircare brand label.m is THE Official Haircare Provider of London Fashion Week, so we’ve teamed up with the experts to bring you our top three looks from this year’s LFW runway, PLUS all you need to know to recreate the looks at home. Who says fashion stays on the runway?! Check out our favourite looks below:

1. The Messy Bun Is Back

Not that it ever really left, but with all its variations it’s been a while since we’ve seen a messy bun that wasn’t teamed with PJS and a lazy Sunday morning… The perfect compliment to the  colourful beading and embroidery seen at Tata Naka, International Artistic Director and British Hairdresser of the Year nominee Cos Sakkas was inspired by the styles of 60s and 80s supermodels to create these messy yet eloquent buns.

To create this look, Cos used label.m Texturising Volume Spray to create height, followed by label.m Hairspray to set the look:

Step 1
Step 2
Step 3

 

 

 

 

Step 1: Gather hair into a high ponytail and use label.m Texturizing Volume Spray around the surface and edge

Step 2: Pull the ponytail upwards and loosely secure with elastic, then drop down towards the crown to create texture and pin in place.

Step 3: Structure the hair to form a messy bun and pull out strands around the hair line and nape of the neck to create texture.

2. Top Knots Are Top Of The List

Another look usually associated with lounging around on the sofa watching Netflix on the sofa, the top knot has had a utilitarianupgrade from stylist Indira Schauwecker where natural twisted knots complimented Paul Costelloe’s striking military-inspired looks.

To create this look, Indira used a combination of volumising, shine and setting products from label.m:

Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Step 4

 

 

 

 

Step 1: Depending on hair texture apply Extra Strong Mousse  throughout hair in sections and blow dry upwards using a grooming brush to smooth.

Step 2: Combing the hair up to the top of the head brushing through to smooth ponytail. Apply hairspray for grip and using a fine comb to create shape but not to make perfect giving a really effortess look.

Step 3: Tie elastic firmly to secure the ponytail. Using a tail end comb to loosen so making the silhouette more natural looking and enhancing texture around hairline.

Step 4: Spray label.m Texturising Volume Spray into ponytail and wrap around the top of head deliberately leaving the ends out. Pin to secure and add a small amount of label.m Hairspray to finish.

3. Soft Waves Are All The Rage

With the the designer’s approach to minimalism in mind, Indira and the TONI&GUY session team created soft, miminalist waves for the fifth season i-am-chen runway show. Romantic yet effortless, soft waves offer an elegantly classic base for colourful hair accessories featured  to bring fun and a light-heated spirit to the audience.

To create this look, Indira used a combination of volumising, shine and setting products from label.m:

Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Step 4

 

 

 

 

Step 1: Apply label.m Extra Strong Mousse and blow-dry smooth section-by-section with a grooming brush.

Step 2: Use  hairspray and take wider sections for the creation of deep waves. Taking a small tong on each section – wrap the hair tightly around the barrel for up to eight – 10 seconds. Release – then hold in place with section clips.

Step 3: Gently brush back the hair section by section – pushing in one direction, and then using the tong to almost indent the waves with the comb held parallel to form the deep waves. Apply a little label.m Shine Mist along the length of the hair as you go.

Step 4: In contrast to the dry texture of the waves – liberally spritz the top only with Shine Mist for a distinct high shine appearance. Set with Hairspray.

Hair Perfume & Hair Mists: What They Are And Why We Love Them

Hair perfume is a thing. It may be something you never thought you’d need, but it is and you definitely do…

Hair perfume and hair mists are having a moment for 2018, but you’d be forgiven for thinking ‘doesn’t normal perfume  do the same thing?!’. The reality, is that regular fragrances can actually cause damage. The reason? Traditional fragrances contain alcohol, which can be incredibly drying to hair.

Enter the hair mist: not only do they help to mask any stale cooking smells that might be clinging  to your hair from the night before, most good ones are also formulated to moisturise, reduce static, add shine and/or protect tresses from UV rays.  Perfect for taking on holiday, popping in your purse to take on-the-go, and a must have to finish off any wedding hair up-do.
