Summer of 2014 Hair trend report by Jean-Claude Biguine Salon and Spa Start planning your new season makeover now - with some help from our guide to summer 2014's biggest and most fashionable hair trends. From messy bobs to extreme side partings and hair colours that are a rage this season, we pick the hair trends that you need to know this summer.
Textured Pixie Cut The look: The pixie haircut is still on trend and is the perfect no-fuss look of the season. The textured pixie is kept soft and feminine with a slight edge. Hair has slightly ragged edges with long wispy bangs that follow that wispy edge up and around the ears. Hair is cut short around the ears but left slightly longer and soft around the rest of the head. Short layers at the crown help add shape and volume.
The tip: When hair is dry, grab your favourite pomade or wax hair product and pinch the ends of bangs and sideburns to create a pointed/piecey look. Use more product to rough up the crown to create shape and volume.
Extreme side partings
The look: Get the 1930s-inspired comb-over that looks super-sexy and oozes confidence. We’re not looking for something just off-centre– this is the extreme makeover version of a side parted style. Let your hair do the talking with a clean and classic, super straight side parting.
The tip: Use the end of your eyebrow as a guide, and then flick your hair to the adjacent side. Finish with the Kérastase Laque Couture for that extra radiance.
Twisted up-dos The look: Forgo the bun this season, and instead opt for twisted up-dos, with lackadaisical flyaway textures. The style is perfect for a romantic yet playful evening look. The tip: The style works best on hair that is washed a day before. To help your updo stay up, start by curling your hair with a curling iron. Spritz it with a hairspray before working on the style.
