Beach hair

Holiday hair can be a bit of a minefield, with unruly frizz and lank, greasy locks leaving your barnet looking less than its best.

Stylist Julie Hannah and professional hair stylist Scott Cooper had four top tips to keep your hair looking great in the hot weather.

  1. 1. A pre-holiday treatment is great if you are prone to frizz. A semi-permanent smoothing treatment can last up to five months and can be great for controlling hair while you’re away.
  2. 2. When you’re out in the sun, use a sun protection spray on your hair. Just spritz onto your hands and work through the hair before you go out into the sun.
  3. 3. At the hottest part of the day it’s worth covering up with a printed scarf or hat to avoid damaging hair in the sun.
  4. 4. To get an easy up ‘do take sections of the hair, twist round the finger, then pin with Kirby grips, crossing them to secure. This keeps the hair away from your face and looks very fashionable, and when you take the Kirbys out you are left with a wavy beach look for the evening.
