Just like that, our Queensland winter is over. With temperatures creeping up, Toni & Guy see a lot of people looking for new-season hair colours and styles. Here’s what’s going to be hot this summer.
We all know that healthy, polished sophisticated hair is always on trend. But this can be trickier with sun exposure and a lot of swimming thrown in the mix.
Toni & Guy Broadbeach style director Bernadette Cliff says, whatever your colour – natural or chemically enhanced – a gloss colour over the top will provide shine, seal the cuticle and add as much or as little tone and vibrancy as you like this summer.
“The hottest glosses right now are minky brondes, deep cool espressos and metallic blondes in varying shades such as violet, golden platinum, ashes and silvers,” Bernadette says.
The other thing you can do to whip your hair into goddess-like shape in preparation for summer is via hair treatments. Salon formulas, such as Wellaplex strengthen and rebuild the hair from the inside. Then there are in-salon treatments that can rehydrate or smooth the hair – or even add volume and elasticity if you are wanting a blowdry that lasts longer.
“If getting into the salon is hard between juggling everything and the kitchen sink then an at-home mask is really worth investing in as it can still add moisture and shine and leave hair healthier,” Bernadette recommends.
As far as styles go, fringes are an easy way to update your look and Bernadette says she is seeing more texture both in the fringe area and internally.
“We always tell our clients a haircut isn’t necessarily about removing length – taking weight out of hair and reshaping the layers keeps hair sitting at its best,” she says.
