FEELING THE HEAT? HOT WEATHER HAIR INSPO
15th Jul 2022
Summer is here and it's bringing the heat! Managing hair in the hot weather can always be a challenge, especially for your clients. To help inspire your clients and to guide you with retail recommendations, we've collated some of our fave looks and must-have hair styling products for the summer.
We all love to embrace the beachy boho vibes during the summer months and what better products to use than from the beach hair master himself, Kevin Murphy. To achieve this look it's all about adding texture to the hair, not only to help keep the braids in place but to create an effortless "day at the beach" look.
KEVIN.MURPHY HAIR.RESORT.SPRAY is a weightless hair thickener that is key to achieving textured, beachy waves. With a tropical scent, this spray will transport you to your dream holiday destination. With a soft and natural hold, the HAIR.RESORT.SPRAY is perfect for styling beachy braids.
Spray onto damp or dry hair, scrunch and leave it to work its magic prior to styling.
Y2K STYLE PLAITS
There's nothing more annoying than when you're hot and your hair is getting in your face! Adding some small, cute plaits to frame your face is super on-trend for achieving the Y2K vibes. It's also a great solution for in-between washes to disguise any greasy strands!
KEVIN.MURPHY DOO.OVER is a dry powder finishing hairspray that provides instant volume with a hold that lasts. With the ability to mould, form and shape the hair whilst retaining softness and natural movement of the hair, this is the perfect base for styling your hair prior to plaiting.
CLIPPED BACK CURLS
The claw clip trend is back and not only is it one of the hottest hair accessories for the season but is also super handy for handling the humidity. Brushed out, bouncy curls will complete this dreamy summer's day look.
To achieve this look, KEVIN.MURPHY BLOW.DRY EVER.BOUNCE should be your go-to product. Not only does it add body and bounce to the hair but protects against heat damage and is designed to lock out humidity and smooth frizz. Finish the look by using your favourite clip to hold back your top section of hair.
CLASSIC LOW BUN
You can never go wrong with a low bun, especially when you are trying to keep cool in the heat. Adding a colourful scarf adds a new take to this classic look. This hair idea is perfect for those lazy hair days, leaving you feeling effortlessly put together and ready to take on the day.
Above all, keeping your hair healthy and hydrated is key for summer when hair is more prone to dryness and damage from environmental factors. The Omniblonde Magically Transforming Intense Treatment is going to be your summer saviour. This intense treatment contains goji berries to help moisturise, condition and revitalise the hair whilst sunflower extract protects against the colour-removing effect of UV rays and other aggressors.
For those that are after something different, the bubble braid style could be the one for you. A simple yet effective hairstyle that is easy to recreate at home. All you need are some small elastics and a quality hairspray to provide a strong hold.
We recommend the KEVIN.MURPHY SESSION.SPRAY to complete this look. This hairspray provides a intense and long-lasting hold even during humid climates. This weightless spray can be easily brushed out, perfect for the "bubble" effect.
