Frizz-Busting Hair Solutions for Summer at Fresh Lifestyle Salons in Blackheath, Islington & Fitzrovia

Summer is finally upon us and while we embrace the sunshine, there is no denying that those humid afternoons can leave our hair a frizzy mess. 

The solution? A frizz-busting treatment or hairstyle to tame those locks! We offer the fabulous Aveda Botanical Hair & Scalp Treatments which can be tailored to your hair’s needs. When it comes to frizz-fighting hairstyles, check out our top five ways to wear your hair this summer…

An Ode to Bardot

BRIGITTE BARDOT HAIRSTYLES AT Blackheath, Islington and Fitzrovia hair & beauty salonsChannel 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 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 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. 

Boxer Braids

Braided hairstyles at summer hairstyles at  Blackheath, Islington and Fitzrovia hair & beauty salonsWe’ve seen this ultra-cool look on the Kardashian clan – and it’s the perfect style to battle summer frizz. Braid your locks as tight as you dare, then finish with hairspray to keep the style in place.

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.
