We’ve certainly been enjoying some much needed summer weather for the last week. If (for some reason) you get tired of basking in the sun’s rays however, now is the perfect time to try out some on-trend hairstyles to prep for festival season, summer holidays, or just for fun! Here’s our pick of this season’s hottest hair looks.
The Classic Plait
The standard French plait is a timeless hairstyle that looks just as good now as it did centuries ago. It’s easy to perfect with a little bit of practice and keeps long hair away from your face while still looking stylish – plus you’ve got some ready made waves when you eventually unbraid. These days the standard braid is evolving into more complex masterpieces like lace plaits, relaxed plaits and waterfall plaits; all of which create a carefree bohemian look that’s ideal for that festival chic look.

The Long Pony Tail
A great look for transitioning from day to night, the long ponytail is simple, sleek and can be done in mere seconds if necessary. This style is a favourite for red carpet celebrities like Beyonce and Fergie, and looks good with almost any smart casual outfit. To make your pony tail night time ready just slick it back with some Pantene Pro-V Satin Hairspray for some added sheen. Don’t forget to add some sparkling earrings for an extra shot of bling.

The Sleeked Back Look
A favourite of Kim Kardashian, the sleeked back look is definitely sophisticated, but can be difficult to pull off without some practice. If you get it right however it’s a real show stopper, showing off your full face while still remaining casual. It’s a minimum fuss look that works great for dinner dates, nights out with the girls or even as a business casual style for work. For best results, use a top quality straightener to make sure your hair stays sleek and shiny.

The Half-up, Half-down
Can’t decide between hair up and hair down? This look has the best of both. Striking the perfect balance of casual and formal, it looks spectacular when finished off with loose beach babe style curls. Start it off with a high ponytail for Ariana Grande’s signature look, or keep it fuss free by pinning some strands back at the nape of your neck.

The Glamorous Granny
If you’re feeling daring and have the urge to reinvent your hairstyle, THE look of the moment is grey hair – yes, you read that right. Although it’s not for the faint hearted, dyed grey hair looks great when worn long with soft waves; but make sure your hair is in the best condition possible or you’ll end up looking more grim than glamorous!
