With many celebs truly taking advantage of their status and indulging in multiple holidays, at Additional Lengths we aren’t complaining as it gives us plenty of summer hair inspiration! In this post we’re sharing with you some of our favourite celebrity hair looks and will be offering some simple yet effective holiday hair care tips along the way to help you keep your locks in the best condition all through the warmer season.
Made In Chelsea and Celebrity Big Brother babe Ashley James has become queen of the bleached bob for summer and we’re loving it! Taking her hair extensions out and self-admittedly cutting off damaged hair, she has transformed her look completely with a great, blunt cut which she styles with a centre parting. Ashley is also no stranger to playing with semi-permanent peach tones and French braids in her hair, which are both fabulous summer hair looks.
To keep Ashley’s hair looking bright and free from brassiness, but also undamaged from bleach, she goes for regular Olaplex treatments. The Olaplex hair treatment is a fantastic product for dyed blondes to use to strengthen their hair by repairing it because it works to link bonds in the hair so as to avoid breakage between salon visits. We recommend taking a bottle of Olaplex with you as part of your holiday hair care to do once a week.
Former member of much missed UK girl band The Saturdays, Vanessa White is also no stranger to jetting off to warmer climes and showcasing her envious holiday wardrobe. With recent trips to the south of France, Baku and Croatia, this girl knows how to relax and see the sights! Heavenly summer fashion choices aside, like Ashley Graham, Vanessa has a long bob that she styles in various ways when she’s abroad.
A key summer hair style that can work well on all hair lengths and hair types is the classic low ponytail. This fuss-free holiday hairstyle is great for keeping cool as it keeps the hair off your face and tied back in a neat ponytail. Vanessa has slicked back her hair into a neat ponytail at the nape of her neck, leaving her free to showcase a pair of beautiful large earrings – an ideal summer hair look that is perfect for warm evenings. We would recommend using a Tangle Teezer hair brush to smooth the hair into a ponytail and Moroccan Oil hair oil to keep flyaways in check and to nourish the hair after a day in the sun.
North East beauty Perrie Edwards is another girl band member whose fashion and hairstyles we just can’t get enough of! The Little Mix singer certainly knows how to mix it up with her style and regularly experiments with different hair looks to suit an occasion or vibe. On her latest holiday to Greece, Perrie has embraced long cool blonde hair extensions to give her perfect mermaid hair whilst she soaks up the sun.
Whether you want to add some extreme length to your hair like the glamorous Perrie Edwards, or simply would like some extra volume to play with, why not get some Remi Cachet human hair extensions for your holiday? Get the textured look similar to Perrie’s long tresses by using heated hair tools that can be easily packed into your suitcase and used to create different hair looks throughout your holiday. Use a Cloud Nine curling wand to produce different sized waves for a textured summer hair look.
Holiday Hair Care Essentials
With holidays comes the potential damage to hair from the sun and swimming pools, so it’s wise to pack a few holiday hair care essentials to see you through your trip away. Our aftercare department is a treasure trove of hair care products that are designed to refresh, nourish and treat the hair, making them ideal accompaniments to your summer hair routine. Spending time in the pool can do wonders for the soul but wreck havoc on the hair! Counteract this by using hair masks from Malibu C which will rebalance your hair and restore it to it’s lovely silky smooth finish. Those with hair extensions should tie hair up when in the pool or ocean and try to keep the hair tangle free.
