Tips to follow this Summer;
·Freshen your look up by adding layers this season, it will add body and movement for a more polished and healthier finish.
·Today’s longer hair has moved away from the flat-ironed straight look and towards a sexier bouncy, flowing style.
·Short hair is once again hot, either with a very strong, clean geometric feel or with softer edges and a fluffier crown.
·Remember, the key to a good haircut is to shape with the natural movement of the hair, and not to over texturize.
·Picking the right colour is very important when creating a successful new look. Your colour choice should compliment not only your eyes and skin colour, but accentuate the hairstyle as well.
·When having your hair coloured, especially hi-lighted, make sure the technician does not overlap, as this will lead to an over-processed look and breakage.
