There's something about a change in season that makes us look a little more critically at our hair colour. It's too dark, or bland, or simply looks a little over.Also, even if you've no plans to sit on a sun-drenched beach (so unfair), can't your tresses at least look like they've been on holiday?
We spoke to Jack Howard - colour director for Neville Hair & Beauty (yep, where all the actual It Girls go) - about how to get the look...
1. If you're going to go for one hair colour this summer, what should it be?It's not so much about one hair colour - it's more about the technique: balayage. Because it's gorgeously blended, it'll give you that supermodel "It Girl" hair colour. We hand paint the colour on and don't use foils so you get a much more natural finish. And it's not just for blondes.
Poppy Delevingne always looks so fresh and natural as does Ana Barros - her hair is so multi-tonal and beautiful. I would say Jennifer Lawrence looks amazing, the Olsen girls are always on top of it and of course Arizona Muse - all these girls look natural and effortless and that's the key look.
L'Oreal Techni Art Fresh Dust Dry Shampoo and Super Dust for festivals - don't leave home without it!
For the beach, get the whole of the Kerastase Soleil range - especially the oil-free Micro Voile Protecteur. Before jumping in the pool, soak your hair in the shower and run through some Kerastase elixir oil. This will protect your hair from absorbing chlorine.
