Frizz-Free Summer Hair Ideas

5 Fabulously Frizz-Busting Hair Solutions for Summer

Summer is finally upon us! And while we embrace the sunshine and all it has to offer, there is no denying that those long, hazy, rose-tinted afternoons can often leave our hair in a sweaty, frizzy mess. 

The solution? A fabulous, frizz-busting treatment or hairstyle to tame those locks! 

Stylist Jeanne van Zweel from COUPE Hair Salon in Sunninghill recommends the Kerastraight Blow Dry treatment.  This transforms damaged locks into soft, sleek and shiny hair for up to four months.  Forget frizz and embrace straighter, softer hair with this lovely service from COUPE.

When it comes to frizz-fighting hairstyles, check out Jeanne’s top five ways to wear your hair this summer…

An Ode to Bardot

BRIGITTE BARDOT HAIRSTYLEChannel your inner Brigitte Bardot this season with an effortless, finger-raked updo. To get the look, wrap random sections around a big curling iron. Be sure to alternate directions with your curls for a modern look.  Do some gentle teasing at the crown for height, then grab a chunk of hair on each side. Pull the pieces back, and gently push upward before you pin it hair into place.

Top tip:  Your upstyle will remain in place more firmly if you wash it the day before rather than on the day itself.

The Plush Ponytail

Smooth the top using either a bristle brush or comb to create a rounder shape. A quick spritz of hairspray will keep the style in place once you’re happy with the final look.   

Top tip:  Blow dry your hair upside down to give your hair that extra va-va-voom!

The Messy Top Knot

Top tip: Work in volumising powder and then boost up the top hair with your fingers. No need to be too exact while tying, by the way – it’s all about the messy look.  Best of all? The top-knot visually lengthens the neck, makes you appear taller and creates a slim overall silhouette. Winner!

Boxer Braids

Top tip:  Plaits and braids are one of the hottest looks around for summer 2016 so if you don’t fancy this look, why not try a chunky single braid, either worn high on your crown, as a low side plait or cascading down your back!

The Embellished Up-Do

Top tip: The addition of some strategically placed ornate clips, flowers or even a tiara can cover a multitude of sins. It’s a spontaneous, imperfect way of adding some glamour to your hair.
