While you may not have noticed a change in the temperature yet, and might even have become somewhat accustomed to baggy jumpers and tights, your hair, tired of hiding beneath hats and hoods, is just about ready for a break. The simple truth is that you deserve a little pamper time, and there has never been a better moment than now. Your hair will thank you come beach season!
This summer’s biggest trends
One thing has become apparent so far this year; simple is in. London Fashion Week’s catwalks were awash with slicked back ponytails, elegant hair accessories, straightened and wavy bobs and mid-length styles, and poker straight hair – in short, the types of look that you could easily replicate at home. Ponytails are, more often than not, the staple look of any slightly harassed mum on the school run, while the wavy bob is equally easy to replicate.
With very little money left in the coiffeurs at the end of every month, us mums relish the chance to recreate fashionable looks for very little; it’s something of a blessing when celebrities are choosing to embrace the look we wear every day. Thankfully, this year, reinvigorating your hair in time for the summer looks set to involve cute clips, boho bands, perfect ponytails and wavy wonders, as well as, perhaps, finding time to wash it between mealtimes.
Hairstyles: the cheat’s guide
Whether you own a pair of straighteners or a hairdryer, or class hair care as knowing you have a brush lying around the house somewhere, the great news is that fantastic, summer-ready styles are far easier to replicate than you could ever imagine. Hair extensions, and the many styles that can be achieved while you’re wearing them, are going to be big news this summer, encouraging even the least beach-ready of us to venture out into the sun. Imagine: it’s a long ’do, an up ’do, a bohemian ’do, and a sophisticated ’do all in one, and you don’t even have to grow your hair for months and months to achieve such an on-trend style.
Wholesalers such as Hair Planet have a wide variety of human hair on offer, meaning that it’s never been easier to create a whole new look that appears to have belonged to you from the start. In addition, adding hair extensions has got to be one of the quickest and most exciting ways to completely change your image, pamper yourself and get a new accessory in the process.
There may still be snow on the ground in some areas, and raging winds threateningly rapping on your windows, but somewhere out there is the summer; there has never been a better time to reinvigorate your hair in time for the warmer weather, or to try out a host of new looks.
