Hair Tips Summer Trends

Summer Hair Inspo: Love Island Edition

The TV show that focuses on the coupling up of lust- at-first sight partners has had us gripped all summer so far, and it’s not just the romances and break ups that have caught our attention. The guys and gals in Love Island have had their fashionable wardrobe catered for by online retailer Missguided, and with rumours of behind the scenes hairstylists on hand to create the various hair looks, we’re so envious of the glamorous hairstyles! From the luxuriously long locks of Samira to the shorter hair of Kaz, here at Additional Lengths we’re taking a closer look at our new summer hairstyle inspiration – Love Island.

Top knot

What cooler way to keep the hair off your neck and face in the blistering sun than to sweep it up into a chic top knot? Gorgeous Kaz is a big fan of the classic top knot as she regularly has her hair styled this way for evening drinks at the Love Island villa. The blonde shades at the ends and mid lengths of her hair offer a great contrast to her darker natural hair colour. Get this sleek top knot look like Kaz by using a Tangle Teezer brush to smooth out any tangles or bumps in the hair, brushing the hair together into a ponytail at the crown before taking the ponytail and wrapping it around itself and securing with a hair tie and hair grips. Beat the humidity and banish frizz with a bit of Moroccan Oillight hair oil that will tame flyaways whilst providing a shine.

Kaz works this summer hairstyle perfectly with one of our favourite Love Island outfits – the Bardot top. Work an off-the-shoulder top with a pair of statement earrings like the Love Island girls for that instant holiday look!

Bouncy waves

Beautiful waves in long hair can be a fabulous look all year round, but beach waves are definitely a summer hairstyle you’ll want to emulate. Love Island goddess Samira knew how to style her summer waves perfectly, adding volume to the root and around the face for hair that looked healthy and glamorous. The Love Island girls are often filmed getting ready for their romantic escapades in the dressing room and they love using straighteners and curling wands equally when it comes to creating their beachy waves. We love the ghd Classic Wave Wand when it comes to getting perfect, locked in waves that last all day long. Get shimmering waves and luxurious movement in the hair like Samira by using the wave wand by ghd and complement the look with a pair of hoop earrings for an on-trend finish.

In true Love Island outfit style, innovative bikini and swimming costume designs have been played with this year. Experiment with various cuts and find a brand new shape or creatively designed bikini, like the one Samira chose with the gold hardware, to see which you will love most on holiday. Just be aware of the potentially interesting tan lines!

High ponytail

A look that has become synonymous with Love Island has to be the high ponytail that Laura and Georgia regularly sport. It’s such an easy and versatile summer hairstyle that can look good as a full ponytail, or by dividing the hair horizontally and putting the top half into a ponytail for a half-up and half-down hairstyle. Hide the hair tie by taking a small section of the hair to wrap around the ponytail like Georgia to add an extra feature to the simple hairstyle. Get the glamorous long hair of the Love Island babes by opting for good quality human hair extensions from Remi Cachet to experience that princess inspired long hair ponytail look! With various application methods on offer, including tape hair extensions and pre-bonded human hair extensions, with Remi Cachet, all of your summer hair goals can be achieved.

Hair care on the island

With countless hours spent in the pool over the course of a two month stay, the girls of Love Island will hopefully be using hair masks and hair treatments to keep their locks looking and feeling good all summer long. At Additional Lengths, we recommend using a gentle hair brush and a nourishing hair mask from Malibu C to restore the vitality of the hair and giving it a radiant shine after the possibly damaging effects of swimming pool water. Also, spending all day in the sun can take its toll on hair so if you’re planning on soaking up the rays like the Love Island residents this summer, then take a baseball cap to wear to cover the scalp, or plait the hair to protect it from exposure to the sun. Keep suncream away from the hair too as it can discolour hair extensions.

Whoever your favourite Love Island lady is, we can bet that she will have displayed a stunning array of different hairstyles during her time gracing our television screens. From Samira’s beautifully wavy long, dark hair to Georgia’s high ponytail, Love Island has provided some fantastic hair inspiration this year! So take to the hair products available Additional Lengths and replicate your favourite look easily.

Summer

Celeb Holiday Hair Inspo 2018

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.

Ashley James

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.

Vanessa White

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.

Perrie Edwards

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.
