Whatever the social calendar has in store for you this summer, make sure your hair is special occasion-worthy with our top three Fashion Fix styles and must-have wonder products
Mud, rain and zero washing facilities sounds like a hair nightmare waiting to happen, but it needn’t be with a clever product arsenal to hand. Those answering the call of the festival circuit this summer will need a look that promises to go the distance. Opt for the Pretty In Punk: a set of tight-rope braids with a striking side parting to keep you feeling groomed. Braids will also prevent hair from knotting – hurrah! By day two, your hair will have lost its freshly washed lustre and bounce, so pep up your flagging mane with a light sprinkling of label.m Resurrection Style Dust, £13.25 – its lightweight particles will absorb any excess oil and add oomph to tired roots. To really switch up your look, add accents of metallic colour with label.m Highlighting Toner, £10.95 – it’s non-permanent, so will simply wash out once you hit the shower.
If a beach break beckons, then lucky for you – but not so lucky for your hair. Searing sun and salt from the sea can take their toll, ravaging locks so they become weak and brittle then eventually split. Over the summer, exercise damage control by prepping locks with a mask treatment – the label.m Intensive Mask, £14.75, with a shea butter- and Amazon cupuacu-enriched formula to nourish hair from the inside-out, is ideal. A classic French plait like The Doxy is perfect for sunbathing, and will keep your look neat and fuss-free whether you’re in or out of the water. Slick back any wayward strands throughout the day with label.m Hold & Gloss Spray, £12.75, for a firm but flexible fix. Its unique Enviroshield complex will not only fight frizz but will also protect hair from harmful UV rays. Win.
Summer weddings bring with them a whole new set of hair rules to abide by. A style that’s chic and understated will help you appear polished but not as primped as the bridal party. The Nouveau Knot is a modern twist on the classic chignon and ideal for a sunshine-filled wedding season. Its undone texture ensures effortless staying power as the daytime ceremony turns into nighttime dancing. Make label.m Weightless Hairspray, £12.95, your secret weapon for the occasion – a generous spritz here and there will tame flyaways without weighing your locks down, while its unique vitamin-infused formula will lend long-lasting hold without any flaking or stickiness. For a final touch, apply an ultra-fine coating of label.m Shine Mist, £14.25, to impart hair with a gorgeously glossy finish.
