Most of us across the country are starting to see the harsher winter weather coming to an end; the limbo between winter and spring has us itching for change. The spring/summer clothing is hitting the high street and although we’re not quite ready to switch our cable knit sweaters for tea dresses, we can begin to make an incremental change. We’ve trawled through the SS18 catwalk shows and fashion magazines to pick out our favourite hair and beauty trends for the new season. So book in with the hairdresser, spring is finally here.
When it comes to hair, freedom is key. We’re welcoming back the fringe, more volume, very natural, and loose plaits- all styles evocative of chill. A vibe we set our tune to for summer.
If you’re looking for something a little more daring, crop cuts are back and more dramatic than ever. So if you can pull it off, chop it off.
Want something that looks a little more pulled together? The French (as always) know how it’s done. That blend of wavy sleek, perfectly undone, is the way to go.
We’re welcoming hair accessories this spring/summer in a big way. Play with scarves, barrettes, scrunches and hairbands to keep it up, off your face on hot summer days, to add a touch of detail to an outfit without jewellery or even add detail for a special occasion.
Thinking of changing your hair colour? We often change the colour of our hair to reflect the seasons. For me, as a blonde, we add lighter blondes to compliment the sun and in winter head for darker and warmer blondes to bring out a little colour in my face. However, we’re switching it up and extending those warmer colours into the spring/summer season. Have or thinking of making a switch to blonde- keep it dirty or take it to the extreme with silver; thinking of taking a trip to the dark side? We love the chocolate tones! As for red; we’re spicing things up, Ginger Spice style.
Unicorns are SO last season (not really, we still love you!) but we’re welcoming the mermaid to the mythological beauty inspo. Turquoise, green, pink, purples and golds will help you unleash your inner mermaid. Perfect for that upcoming festival!
Following suit, we’re keeping it loose when it comes to make up and nails. Keep it in neutral and go as natural as possible, but, if you’re looking for a pop of colour, a bold red lip or nails with nude eyes or mascara only is on trend too. Day to night, this seasons look is flawless darling.
