Summer is fast approaching, and with it comes big, frizzy, and hot on the neck, hair. To combat these “summer hair days“, braid it! Braids are undoubtedly one of the hottest trends this summer. They are perfect for those dirty hair days, or when its just too hot outside and you don’t feel like fussing with it. Braids are also a great way to create those messy, hot beach waves, just take out your braid(s), loosely shake with fingers, spray with some texture spray (try Redken’s Radiant Sea Spray), scrunch, and voila!

Summer time seems to fly by so quickly, only to transform into a colourful, crisp fall. Bring your hair colour into the new season but adding some spice and vibrancy into your locks! Be as subtle or as wild as your fiery heart desires!
Some of you may be hesitant to change your colour or are worried about looking too severe. Try for a more subtle change by adding a slight strawberry blonde hue to your highlights, like Leslie Mann or adding a pinch more warmth into your darker hues, like Audrina Patridge.
For those who are slightly more daring and are looking to turn heads try an intense red like Rihanna or a vibrant copper, like Ashlee Simpson! These shades tend to be higher maintenance, as reds are far quicker to fade. Talk to your stylist about changes in colour appointments and take home products to keep your reds RED and your coppers COPPER!
