Go all out blonde
Many decide to go lighter in the summer to reflect the warmer weather. So if you want a change, why not head to the hairdressers and go for a makeover? Going all-out and going platinum blonde can make a big, bold statement for the summer. Blonde does however take a lot of upkeep, so you’ll needed to invest in some specialist products, such as specialist shampoo and conditioner, to keep it looking platinum and less brassy.
Follow the trend and opt for balayage
Balayage may have been around for quite some time, but that doesn’t mean it’s going anywhere. A continuation from the ombre and dip dye trends that have been floating around for the last decade, balayage is a subtler version the dip dye trend. Designed to look more natural than the sometimes harsh ombre look, balayage has caught on and now adorns thousands of heads all over the world.
Go for highlights
Another popular hair option for the summer is to go for a full or half head of highlights. Designed to make the hair appear ‘sun-kissed’, highlights can transform a look in a simple way and make it look instantly ready for the warmer weather.
If you’re thinking of going blonde, you’ll need some hair extensions to match! These are perfect for adding volume and length to fine hair, while these are best for blending into thick hair.
If you want to buck the trend and go over to the dark side this summer, you could always opt for some lowlights to really draw out your features, or even opt for a dark brown or black head of hair. Although people often go darker in the winter months, there’s no saying you have to follow the trend. If you decide to do this, why not change up your platinum hair for a caramel colour, or even opt for a seriously dark brown?
