What’s the best way to protect your hair from the intense summer heat?
There are haircare products that have UV protection and act as a sunscreen for your hair and scalp. One of my favourites is the Aveda sun care protective sun veil. I love it because it’s a lightweight, water-resistant UV defense mist that forms an invisible screen to help protect hair from sun exposure to minimise damage and dryness.
Best hair colour for this summer?
Summer is the time to go lighter and brighter. It doesn’t have to be blonde, just a little lighter then your natural hair colour.
Any pro tips for keeping hair healthy?
I am true believer healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. Make sure you target any scalp issues first with the right shampoo and scalp treatments, Kerastase will always be my go to.
What hairstyle do you recommend for the party season?
Its all about hair accessories. A simple ponytail or upstyle can easily be elevated with an elegant hair clip or pin. I am obsessed with Orbie hair accessories, they are lux and also gold plated.
Favourite hair cut for summer?
The SHAG lots of texture and face framing with layers or bangs. This can be replicated on bob length hair to long hair.
