Summer is here!
After months hiding under toques and hoods , it’s time to get up, dress up, and look your best. Head into your salon today and give yourself a new summer look. This years summer colour trends are all about fun, being bold and adding dimensions to your hair.
The ombre look is the most requested look since last year and looks like it’s going to be around for awhile. I’m a big fan of ombre myself, I find it adds a certain sexiness to your look. This year we’re taking ombre to a whole new level. It’s not just for blondes and brunettes, I’m talking about purple or midnight blue and the red on black that Rihanna has been sporting. Short hair clients are starting to request ombre too. It makes you look bold and fun without taking away that edgy look from the cut. It can also soften up the cut and add a girly touch depending on what look you’re going for.
Another great look is having what’s known as sun kissed dimensions. This means adding different tones (light and dark) to your colour without changing what you already have. It great for brunettes who refuse to completely lighten their hair, but want a change for the summer. You can add caramel, or hazelnut brown hightlights depending on how dark your base is. It cannot be more then 2 levels lighter then your base colour, if it is the contrast is too much and you lose that soft dimension look. For Blondes who also want to add dimensions to their colour they can add a cool tone, or warm tone again depending on the base.
Remember chose carefully, sometimes keeping it simple and soft can be the most look amazing on you.

TIPS FOR CURLS
As summer is approaching, natural curly hair styles are a “go to” for most women. Wearable curly hair must be defined and as frizz free as can be. Hydration is key to all things curly! Try Dual Senses Rich Repair Shampoo and Conditioner by Goldwell.
As far as styling products go, you must ask yourself what look you want to achieve.
The Bouncy Soft Look can be achieved by applying Be Curly curl enhancing lotion (Aveda) to wet hair, followed by Glamour Whip mousse (Goldwell) for medium hold and extra shine. For best results diffuse throughout.
The Beach Look can be achieved by applying K Spray A Porter (Kerastase) to wet hair, or to already dried hair that needs extra texture can be air dried or lightly diffused.
-All looks can be completed with Big Finish hair spray (Goldwell) for extra hold and/or Diamond Gloss shine spray (Goldwell) for maximum shine.
For best results use the scrunching technique (making sure not to run fingers through hair) when applying product to wet hair, this will help keep your curls intact.
Remember to experiment with different products and have fun!
