Summer Hair Trends 2014

Looking for the perfect hairstyle for summer?  At GREAT Hairdressing in Kent and Sussex we’ve put together some of our favourite hairstyles to inspire you to experiment with your hair over the long, hot summer months.

Beach waves for summer hair

Perfect beachy waves are easy to achieve.  Simply wrap your hair around a large curling wand and spray with a texturising spray to keep them in place.  If you have time, wind strands of hair tightly around a curling wand and sleep with your curls overnight.  In the morning you’ll wake up to sexy casual curls.  Just shake your head and go!

Summer plaits and braids

Plaited and braided hairstyles are here to stay!  They can be as easy or as intricate as you like but we reckon they look best when they’re a little messy!  Pull out some strands to frame your face and work your fingers through the plait so it isn’t too polished!

If you are looking for a more formal and detailed plaited hairstyle, book an appointment at your GREAT Hairdressing salon and we’ll work up some great new looks especially for you.

Super summer messy buns

It doesn’t matter if you wear your bun high on your head like a ballerina bun or low into the nape of your neck… just make sure it’s a messy bun!  Don’t be too particular when it comes to securing your bun – let strands of hair fall loosely from your creation and you’ll look extra chic for summer.

Short hair ideas for summer

If you’ve been flirting with the idea of getting your hair chopped, this summer is the time to go for it!  Bold short haircuts are on trend for summer 2014.  Come and talk to your stylist to find out which short style will suit your face shape.  There are plenty of styles to choose from – a side-swept pixie cut, a punk-inspired undercut, a close crop, a quiffed short cut or a blunt bob…

Summer hair for men

The good news for men is that men’s hairstyles are also more versatile than ever before.  We’ve seen an increase in groomed men’s hairstyles which take inspiration from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s with low side partings, slicked back hair, shaved sides and quiffs.  If you have naturally curly hair, make the most of your waves with a great men’s haircut from GREAT Hairdressing.
