Summer & Festival Hair

Summer & Festival Hair

With summer just around the corner the team at Hair Oasis in Basildon is getting ready to wow you with great hairstyles for hot summer days and balmy evenings.

Whether you’re heading off to a summer picnic, party or music festival, we have a summer hairstyle that will suit you.  Festivals are great for experimenting with fabulous hairstyles and hair accessories that you may not have been brave enough to try normally.

The hot and humid summer weather, combined with days of dancing, can leave your hair looking greasy and lank so we’d recommend you keep your hairstyle simple (and take plenty of dry shampoo with you!)

Summer Hair Flowers & Accessories

Put some flowers in your hair for a pretty and practical summer hairstyle.  The flowery head-dress or floral headband is great for covering up unsightly-looking hair.  Wear your hair long and in loose waves with some flower accessories, like Una Healy of The Saturdays, for a classic festival hair trend.

You can also try a fashionable cover-up for your hair – a big floppy hat or a scarf worn wrapped around your hair or as a headband.

Multiple Hair Buns & Top Knots

We have seen a revival of all things grunge and punk on the 2014 fashion runways.  ‘Multi-buns’ were popular in the 1990s ( as worn by Gwen Stefani in her No Doubt days) and have been seen recently on Rita Ora.

Top knots are also a great summer hair idea. The top knot could not be simpler to create – simply wind your hair up into a knot high on your head.  For a less severe look, pull out some strands of hair to frame your face.  Effortlessly chic.

Boho Braids & Plaits

Braids and plaits show no signs of going away which is great news because they are easy to create and look decidedly cool!  There are plenty of exciting braiding methods to try from fishtail and waterfall plaits to halo braids and pigtails!

If you are doing it yourself, make sure you plait your hair and then gently pull each section so that it loosens a little.  Pull out some strands of hair to add to this casual plaited look.  We love these braided looks worn by Leona Lewis, Tinsley Mortimer and Whitney Port.

Be bold with summer hair colour

If you have the chance and your image allows it, be bold with your hair colour this summer.  Hair colours have never been so interesting with colours ranging from pinks, blues and purples to vibrant reds, blondes and brunettes.  At Hair Oasis our expert hair colour technicians are here to offer you advice on hair colour if you fancy a change.
