Summer Plaits and Braids  

The focus for Summer hair is on low maintenance, stylish and fun hairstyles and a plaited or braided hairstyle ticks all these boxes.

A casual, loose plait or fishtail worn on the side or down your back is easy to create, while a halo braid – as seen on Pixie Lott – or a simply plait running through straight or curly hair, like Isla Fisher’s plaited hairstyle, is both cool and chic. If you are looking for something more elaborate, try a waterfall plait which looks effortlessly stunning.

Long Hair Styles for Summer

Gentle curls are on-trend when it comes to mid-length and long hairstyles this Summer.  We’ve seen a big demand for people wanting a blunt long bob which can be worn straight, like Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts, curly or rough-dried for a tousled hair style.

Centre partings are big news this Summer and consider wearing long hair over one shoulder for a smouldering look or straight hair work in a low side ponytail, as seen on Jessica Alba.

Vibrant Hair Colours for Summer

Hair colours have never been so exciting!  At JDH our colour technicians are experts in creating new fantastic hair styles using the vibrant colour range from Aveda

Fun hair colours like pink, red, blue and green hair are a big trend for 2013.  We have 74 shades to choose from and can deliver long-lasting permanent or semi-permanent hair colour, leaving your hair exceptionally shiny.

If pastel hair colours aren’t for you, consider lightening your hair.  Blonde hair colours remain a firm favourite with an increase in platinum blondes like Gwen Stefani, golden blondes, honey blondes, ash blondes and ombre and reverse ombre dip dyed hair.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s reverse ombre looks cool and edgy with the lighter blonde at the roots, darkening at the ends. 

Hair Care In The Sun

We all know we need to protect our skin from the sun’s damaging rays, but what about our hair? 

The sun’s rays damage the hair by reducing its strength and shine.  This can result in split ends and dry and brittle hair.

Here at JDH we recommend the Aveda Sun Care range.  These products are suitable for all hair types and protect hair against chlorine, sea salt and UV rays.

Pretty Summer Nails

Pretty Summer sandals mean your toes will be on show so don’t forget your OPI pedicure.  This summer we’ve seen three key trends:  glitter nails and diamante-encrusted nails; nude nails and brightly coloured nails.

At JDH we offer a great range of hand and foot treatments which will leave your fingers and tootsies looking and feeling smooth and soft.  Come and talk to us about our nail services and remember that we also specialise in Shellac manicures which offer flawless long-lasting nails with incredible shine.
