TOP TIPS FOR YOUR HOLIDAY HAIR

Everything is better in the summer. The fashion, the food, time spent in the sun and, of course, holiday hairstyles. However, your locks do need a little extra TLC during this sunny season.

Summer for many of us means sun kissed days, time spent on the beach and regular al fresco meals. But all that heat and those UV rays can take a toll on your locks.

Don't let hot temperatures get in the way of your style this summer. We’ve enlisted the help of ghd global brand ambassador, Adam Reed, for his top tips to keep your holiday hair looking fresh even when the heat hits its peak. Here’s how to get summer hair, ready for your holiday.

HOW TO GET SUMMER HAIR READY
FOR THE HEAT

1. WEAR PROTECTION

“Wear a hat to protect your hair from the UV rays, to prevent it drying out, as well as preventing dreaded split ends.”

It’s also a good idea to remove any dead or split ends with a quick trip to your hairdresser. This will leave locks looking and feeling healthy, ready for your summer plans.

2. DEAL WITH ANY DAMAGE

“Use ghd advanced split end therapy before you go on holiday to keep your hair looking healthy.”

It’s a good idea to sort out any damage your hair may have experienced before you get out in the sun. After a fresh trim, continue to treat your hair with product to maintain the fresh style. The ghd advanced split end therapy is great for any season, but with a fresh trim for summer, it will help nourish and fortify your ends. What’s better, this product is activated by heat styling, so you can create your favourite summer hairstyles while treating your hair.

3. SHIELD YOUR HAIR WITH HEAT PROTECT SPRAY

“Always use heat protect spray, as it adds moisture into your hair.”

The ghd heat protect spray with UV protection can be used whether you’re getting your styler out or not. Spritz onto damp or dry hair in the morning before styling to shield hair from the heat.

4. HOLIDAY HAIRSTYLES FOR BEACH DAYS

“For a beachy day look, spritz damp hair with ghd curl hold spray and braid. To transform this look from beach to sunset, go over the braids with your ghd gold® styler once dry and then untie the style and comb through the hair with fingers.”

Braids are a great choice for your go-to summer look. They leave hair gorgeously wavy when taken out in the evening and are perfect for hanging out by the pool or tanning at the beach. We have plenty of gorgeous braided holiday hairstyles to take you seamlessly from day to night.

5. REFRESH YOUR COLOUR BEFORE YOU FLY

If you’re heading somewhere sunny and rock a stunning dye job, book in for a colour just before you go. This will ensure your custom shade is fresh before you step on the plane and any root growth will be minimal so you look stunning in those holiday snaps. For blonde styles, be careful to leave 24hr before hitting the pool, to avoid any chemical damage to the colour.

Whether you’re a boho beach babe or a poolside lounger, look after your lustrous locks this holiday season. From styling tips to protective products, pack these points and your ghd toolkit in your travel case and achieve flawless locks throughout your holiday.
