Summer Hair Trends

It’s official – spring has finally sprung and summer is just around the corner! The reprieve from the bitter cold and awakening from winter hibernation is almost like finally moving on from that lame ex-boyfriend, and what better way to move on to greener pastures than by changing up your look? You know what they say after all, “new hair, new life”.

Well we’re here to help you breathe new life into your hair this summer with these 7 hair trends to try this season.

1. Solid blondes

We’re not saying balayage hair won’t still be a popular hair colouring trend and trust us when we say, it isn’t going anywhere any time soon, but we will be seeing a transition to solid blonde shades during the summer months. Think Hilary Duff changing up her style from balayage to a solid bleach out.

2. Solid brunettes

Don’t think blondes have more fun? Join the movement with celebs like Emma Roberts and Charlize Theron who are all rocking deep, rich brown hues no longer reserved just for fall.

If you’re already rocking that solid brunette look, try adding in ashy, dusty caramel highlights for a bit of added lightness.

3. Shoulder length cuts

Starting to trend last year and continuing into this year, shoulder length haircuts, like Brie Larson’s, are the most popular. Taking on more of a rock n’ roll, 80s look, mid-length cuts are moving towards above the shoulders, layered and texturized with a solid fringe.

4. Deep side sweeps

If you’ve been paying attention to celebrity hairstylist Instagram accounts then you’ve probably noticed the polished, high shine wavy hairstyles taking over.

If you’re looking for a night out hairstyle, opt for a relaxed version of the traditional S-wave style. Pair it with a deep side part, curling into and over the face softly or pair it with a middle part to give the hair subtle movement.

5. Natural texture

We’re just as happy to say it as you are to hear it – going natural has never been more popular! With more hair brands expanding their wavy and curly product lines, this season is the perfect time to embrace this summer hair trend and rock those natural beach curls.

Not only does embracing your natural hair free you from the clutches of hot tools, but breaks the cycle of dry, damaged hair from constant heat styling leading to healthier hair overall.

Never really embraced your natural locks? We would suggest coming in for a hair cut to shape it appropriately to work best with your natural hair.

Since there’s always an art to layering your hair products to get the most out of your natural hair, we will show you how to style, diffuse and air dry your hair that is best for your curl type.

6. Chin length cuts

Whether it’s fashion or beauty, there’s no denying the French inspire us, just like the chin-length girl bob haircuts. If you’re ready to really make a change and you’re feeling quite daring then let’s go ahead and make the chop!

7. Face-framing bangs

PSA: bangs are making a comeback! And in a big way. From curtain style, face-framing bangs to choppier bangs reminiscent of the 70s, every woman has had a love-hate relationship with this hair trend.

If you’re yearning for a hair change this summer and you’re thinking of making the cut, opt for face-framing choppy bangs paired with long layers.
