Lets Heat things up…Especially your hair!

Spring & summer…finally things are heating up a bit!

I’m sure everyone can agree, we all think sun when these 2 words start being used!

I personally think longer days and warmer nights, sitting outside in a beer garden holding my Kopparberg are long over due! Thank god the clocks change this weekend!

It is certainly no coincidence that whilst we look forward to a bit of heat in weather terms, the trend forecast is screaming ‘HOT’ also!

The likes of Fendi, Rag & Bone, DKNY and Gucci (to name but a few) have their models sporting the latest red head shades down the runway.


Scorching Red Heads’ and ‘Singeing Burnt Coppers’ are the ‘MUST HAVE’ for your hair this SS17!


So what does this mean for your hair? What can you do to stay fashionable this season?



Well for those wanting to adapt their current hair colour in a subtle way, you can enrich pre-existing colours by having lowlights put through your current highlights. These lowlights can be burnt coppers or if that sounds a bit too scary even some caramel tones will give you a shot of warmth.





For those of you with a full head colour, why not try a semi-permanent tint? They last roughly four weeks and fade out rather than grow out. They are also extra moisturising for your hair so no unnecessary damage!  Not only are you fashion forward but because a semi-permanent colour fades out, you won’t have any harsh regrowth lines –bonus!


Now those who embrace the trends in full force, the true fashionistas, look to signature red heads: Isla Fisher, Emma Stone and Julianne Moore. Full head colours that are vibrant, glossy and striking to behold.

These can be done with permanent or semi-permanent colours. Then when we reach the pinnacle of summer you can opt for blonder highlights to break up the colour and give you that sun kissed holiday feel.



To make sure your colour stays healthy  and vibrant through the seasonal changes make sure you use colour locking products that help maintain shine.

My personal favourites are System Professional Colour Save Shampoo and System Professional Colour Save Conditioner by WELLA.

Now if your hair is anything like mine and a normal conditioner is too heavy for my fine an
d fragile tresses – there is also a spray and leave-in conditioner call System Professional Bi-Phase Conditioner.        SYSTEM-PROFESSIONAL-Color-Save-Bi-Phase-Conditioner_d

Super lightweight  and still gives my hair the nourishment it needs to de-tangle. Great as a bit of an extra hydration shot in hot weather too! Just simply spray into wet or dry hair and comb through. ‘Simples’!
