Avoid that holiday fade with our top tips
The sun is shining, and the weather is hot - so keeping your hair fresh is a must.
There's nothing like a bit of summer sun to make you want to look your best - and with soaring temperatures and heatwaves this year, we're getting more sun than most.
So make sure you slap on the sun cream, soak up those rays and keep your hair looking tip-top with our tips to ensure that faded tresses don't ruin your holiday fun.
Fight the fade with long-lasting colour
It might be tempting to opt for a DIY job when keeping your locks looking amazing for the holiday season, but you’ll soon find the combination of sun and sea leaves your hair looking in need of a redo. Choosing to visit a salon and get your colour applied professionally can result in enviable hair that can survive even the sunniest days with minimal fading. You’d be surprised at the difference.
Whether beautiful brights is your style, you're a fan of the beachy blonde look or your brunette style is in need of some TLC, going to the salon for your colour needs can ensure your hair dye worries are gone for the whole summer. Combine with colour lasting treatments and haircare, and you'll be left looking lovely.
Make use of minis
Cosmetics and toiletries are the two most forgotten items when jetting off to hotter climates, but when it comes to keeping your hair looking at its best, the shampoos and conditioners you can pick up in your local airport just won’t cut it. Ensure you’re well-stocked with the right hair care for your particular style by consulting your salon - at Em², we stock everything you’d need in miniature form.
Make sure you’ve got all the basics covered for your next holiday, plus those little extras for effortless style, and you can be ready for a night out in minutes. It’s all about having the right tools for the job.
Go for a shadow
Worried your new colour won't look so perfect after a few week's regrowth? If you're a fan of modern hair trends, choose a shadow root or balayage as the ideal option to inject long-lasting colour into your style that can stand up to longer times between salon visits. If you're looking to switch it up for summer but still stay pretty low-maintenance, these styles could be the solution to your problems - ensuring that neither fading nor regrowth can dampen those summertime spirits.
A great salon will be able to help you make the best decision for you and your hair - when it comes to what fits into your daily maintenance, how vibrant you want your hair or even how to keep your locks looking on-point for longer, your hairdresser is your best friend. All you have to do is ask.
