Slay All Summer!

Hey Queens! Summer is coming, and it's time to trade in those winter hats for cute, breezy styles that let your melanin glow. But before you hit the beach, it's important to get your hair ready for the sun, heat, and chlorine that come with the season.


Summer Hair Prep: Healthy Hair is Happy Hair:

  • Deep Condition Like Crazy: Summer elements can be drying, so deep conditioning is your new BFF. Ensure you opt for rich masks and treatments formulated for textured hair to replenish moisture and keep your strands strong and flexible.

  • Trim Those Split Ends: Split ends travel up the hair shaft, making it look thin and unhealthy. Get a trim before summer to maintain thickness and prevent further breakage.

  • Sunscreen for Your Hair Too: Yes, you read that right! UV rays damage hair just like skin. Use a leave-in conditioner with SPF whenever you'll be in the sun for extended periods.

  • Don't forget to prime your hair: Hair primer is a great multitasker, it's great for your hair and scalp as it is full of essential oils. It can protect your hair from harsh weather and heat styling and, like sunscreen, it can protect your hair from UV damage. BONUS - If you regularly wear your hair in protective styles, primers are great for adding moisture when your hair is starting to feel a little dry. The Bumble and Bumble Invisible Oil primer is currently one of our bestsellers so grab a bottle at your next appointment.


Hot Summer Styles That Will Turn Heads:

  • Braids for Days: Box braids, Fulani braids, knotless braids - the options are endless! Braids are a protective style that allows your hair to grow underneath without manipulation. Plus, they're incredibly versatile and can be styled in countless ways.

  • The Return of the Afro: Big, bold, and beautiful, afros are back in a major way. Embrace your natural texture and rock your crown with confidence.

  • The Effortless Twist-Out: Twists are a great way to add definition and volume to your curls. They're also relatively low-maintenance and can be dressed up or down for any occasion.

  • The Polished Ponytail: A sleek, high ponytail is a timeless yet chic look. This style keeps your hair cool and off your neck on hot days, and you can add flair with a colourful hair tie or scarf.

  • Bold and Beautiful Colour: Feeling adventurous? This summer is all about embracing vibrant hair colour. Play with jewel tones like emerald green or sapphire blue, or try a trendy shade like peach or copper.


Remember, Queens: No matter what style you choose, the most important thing is to embrace your natural beauty and have fun with your hair!
