Staying on trend from season to season can be expensive and time consuming. Of course, you need to invest in a few key items for your new wardrobe each summer, but shopping can soon add up. Revamping your hairstyle can completely transform your look for the season ahead, and will make sure you look stylish even when you’re dressed casual for the shops. From hair colour to the latest cuts and finishes, let’s have a look at the key trend for women’s hairstyle in summer 2014.
Colour It In
Even the slightest change in hair colour can update your look and keep it looking fresh. Sweet variations of blonde, brunette and ginger are all irresistible this summer. Not quite sure what we mean? Think white chocolate, caramel, dark chocolate and cappuccino for tasty looking hair. If you’re caught between going blonde or brunette for the summer, ombre is the perfect solution. Dark on the top with highlights at the bottom, it’s the hottest trend in hair colour this summer and you’ll see countless celebrities rocking it. However if you want to break from the crowds, go ‘sombre’ by doing the look more subtly or even switching the colours around.
Keeping your hair in good condition requires a regular cut, so whether you’re just going for a trim and some extra layers in your hair or you fancy a change, a stylish cut can make all the different for that summer look. For a cool and manageable hairstyle, why not go short with your hair cut and choose a pixie bob that will look feminine chic for festivals and fashion. If you’re feeling brave, a boy cut is also an option… but remember it’s hard to grow back!
Depending on how much time you have, there’s a variety of ways in which you can style your hair this summer. If you’ve got long locks, a low ponytail is a great way to keep your hair out the way in a hurry. Meanwhile the milkmaid braid has rocketed into popularity and looks great for special occasions. When it comes to short hair, a little wax can go a long way in making the most of your locks for a really show-stopping look. Go for slick and smooth or give yourself a bed-head look with plenty of volume depending on your style. Want to accessorize your hair? Flowers are blossoming onto the fashion scene this summer, and complete that bohemian festival look with ease.
Step out in style for your summer plans with a colour, cut and finish that will really set the tone for your look. Whether you want a high-impact style or something that’s easy to manage when you’re on the go, there’s lot of ways that you can mix up your hairstyle for SS14. Just visit your salon and discuss your options to decide upon a haircut and colour that will look and feel right for you. As some people might say somewhere…. You’re definitely worth it! Go!
