It’s official… Summer has arrived.  Time to get your hair and bod looking great for the sunny Summer months.

Here at Great Hairdressing hair salons we have the latest Summer hair trends, hair colours and some great Summer beauty treatments to help you look and feel fabulous. 

And don’t forget to take advantage of our great hair offers including our 50% discount on hair colouring with any cut & finish (on selected days), and our 50% off a haircut for you and a friend under our Refer a Friend (new clients) scheme.


Summer Hair Styles – Braids & Plaits

The key to Summer hair is for it to be low maintenance but stylish.  Perhaps you are jetting off to an exotic location or maybe you’re staying at home to enjoy music festivals and leisurely barbecues?

Whatever the occasion, you cannot go wrong with a casual loose side plait for an effortlessly chic daytime look.    Fearne Cotton gets it right with her pretty fishtail, while Pixie Lott’s halo braid is a great plaited hair style for Summer.

A more formal evening look is the plaited top knot which Nicole Richie shows off with style. 

Waves and Curls for Summer Hair

The classic bob has been given a new twist with a rise in demand for the blunt long bob, as seen on former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts.  This versatile hairstyle can be worn straight, curly or tousled, depending on how the mood takes you!

We’ve also seen a trend in centre partings which look particularly good with a messy, wavy hairstyle like Alexa Chung’s. 

If you want instant long hair for Summer then come and see us for a free detailed hair extensions consultation to work out which hair extensions will best suit you.  We have hair extensions for extra volume and hair length as well as brightly coloured hair extensions.

The Hottest Hair Colour Trends for Summer

Just about anything goes when it comes to hair colour trends for 2013 which is great news for the stylists at Great Hairdressing as they love applying today’s fun hair colours.  The biggest hair colour trend for Summer is for pastel hair colours so why not be a head-turner with pink, purple, blue or green hair.

And don’t forget that Great Hairdressing offers half price hair colour discounts with any cut and finish (on selected days).

Of course, pink hair isn’t right for everyone so you’ll be pleased to hear that blonde shades are also hot this Summer.  Our hair stylists can find the right shade to suit your base colour so come and talk to us first if you are considering dyeing your hair blonde.

If your hair is naturally dark, like Jennifer Aniston’s, we can lift your colour by adding rich caramel blonde tones or warm ombre uplights

Ombre colours such as Khloe Kardashian’s sun-kissed look add gradual shading from the roots to the hair end, while Reverse Ombre usually feature lighter roots growing darker to the hair end.
