Summer Braids and Plaits

The focus for Summer is on low maintenance hair that looks effortlessly chic which is why Summer plaits and braids are bang on trend.

A great day-time look is the messy loose plait worn to the side or down your back or a stylish halo braid with flowing tendrils.   Festival-goer Fearne Cotton’s casual side plait and Pixie Lott’s braided hairstyle are perfect for Summer.

For a casual evening hairstyle opt for a loose ponytail at the nape of the neck with an edgy centre parting.  If you want a more formal evening hairstyle sweep your hair off your face and into a plaited top knot like Nicole Richie’s top knot.

Wavy Long Summer Hair  

The blunt long bob (or lob) is a hot look for Summer as you can see from former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts’ do.  Make sure your bob looks sharp with the latest precision cutting techniques.   An easy look for daytime is to scrunch the ends of your towel-dried hair for a tousled wavy hairstyle worn by Alexa Chung.   Middle partings are all the rage and look fab with a straight long bob.  If you are feeling fun and flirty, create beachy waves with a curly blow dry or use a styling wand!

Hair Colour Trends for Summer

Hair colours have never been so exciting!  Our stylists at Fringe Benefits love using their hair colouring expertise to create today’s fun hair colours.

For a bold, fun hairstyle follow the trend for pastel hair colours this Summer and make a statement with blue, pink or purple hair.

Another hot hair trend for Summer is the ombre and reverse ombre.  Our hair stylists will help you find the right shade to suit your base colour and today we can add a hint of blonde to all hair types and colours from black and brunette hair to redheads

Consider lifting your naturally dark hair  by adding rich caramel blonde tones or warm ombre uplights like Caroline Flack and Khloe Kardashian. Ombre hair colouring techniques add gradual shading from the roots to the hair ends – a great way to grow out hair colours while giving a fab sun-kissed look.

Or try the reverse ombre with the colour graduating from light at the roots to dark at the ends, as seen on Lily Jackson.

Hair Care Tips for Summer

The sun’s rays damage the hair by reducing its strength and shine, resulting in dry and brittle hair and split ends.  Talk to the stylists at Fringe Benefits about how you can protect your hair from the sun’s damaging effects using the Redken suncare range for hair which comes in handy travel sizes – perfect for your holiday!

Summer Nails & Beauty

Whether you’re walking bare foot on the beach or showing your toes off through peep-toe sandals, it’s time to get your nails in shape for Summer.

Our beauty experts at La Bella Beauty can help to condition your nails using our Nailtiques Luxury Therapeutic Manicure or Nailtiques Luxury Pedicure.

Our manicures go hand in hand with the application of gel nails.  These artificial nails give the appearance of a natural nail.  We use Orly Gel FX which is packed with antioxidants and vitamins to further nourish your nails.

Safe Summer Tanning

Be safe in the sun and make sure you apply a good sunscreen to your skin, such as ENVIRON Rad sun cream, available from La Bella Beauty at Fringe Benefits.

If you are lucky enough to be heading to sunny climes, consider having a quick and safe spray tan for a natural sun-kissed look.  At La Bella Beauty we offer The Ultimate St Tropez Tan Treatment which guarantees a flawless and streak-free tan.

Within minutes you will have a long-lasting bronzed glow just like A-List celebrity Jessica Alba’s natural-looking tan.
