#HairGOALS, Summer '16

With Memorial Day Weekend behind us and summer right around the corner, now is the perfect time to spice up your do for the season. Whether you're simply looking to accessorize or to take your colour to new heights, the time to experiment is now.

We've done some investigating and have pulled key hair trends that will make you say #GOALS.

Ice Ice Baby

As seen at Met Gala (and ever since), it is clear that cooling down for the summer with icy hot tresses is the new wave. Whether that means brightening up your brown or lifting your lighter locks, this look not only freshens your face, but also will enhance your summer tan. Be sure to achieve this colour with a professional colourist only.

Lob to Bob

We've been loving the year of the Lob, but it seems that shearing it shorter just might be the summer move. Take your Lob to the next level with the 'Anna Wintour Bob', sported by countless celebrities lately. Both conventional and sexy, this look if perfect for the hot hot heat, as it works with most hair types and is very low-maintenance.

Get Funky

2016 has been the year of bringing back the 90s. With chokers, joggers and crop tops galore, it is no surprise that funky hair clips and barrettes have been added to the mix (as seen on the one and only, Badgal RiRi). Embracing the exposed pin look allows you to be creative with your updo's and add some colour & character to an everyday look.
