Summer is a great time to get a new hairdo. The light nights, outdoor socialising and excitement about going on holiday makes us want to buy new outfits and sport a new ‘do’. If you’re looking for some inspiration then here are some of the latest summer haircut trends for you to get out in the sunshine and feel fantastic doing it!

If you want to go short to get some cool air on your neck during those hot, sultry nights then the ‘Edgy Pixie’ is a great current look. A normal pixie cut that’s choppy and slightly longer on top with an asymmetrical layering at the front can be both soft and feminine with a funky twist. It’s a good cut for straight to wavy hair and is a style that says cool and confident.

The pixie can also be cut in a sleek way, with portioning of the hair to create a clean, slick appearance. It is also known as the ‘side-swept pixie’. This is a great cut for anyone seeking texture in their style who has naturally medium to thick hair. The hair needs this volume to support the fullness of the pixie on top and add shape and support to the style.

If you love your sexy, long locks then think about refreshing your look with some subtle layers. A long, layered style suits many different shaped faces and hair types. Layers that frame your face will look the best so they highlight your favourite features. This cut looks fantastic on people with round faces and thicker hair, as the style elongates the face.

The ’Framing Fringe’ is also very popular this summer. It works best with long, layered hair which is razored to open up the face area. For a round face shape, make sure the fringe is left a little longer but this style is perfect for oval and square face shapes and those with thick hair.

For a super stylish summer look, ask your stylist for a chin length bob with blunt ends. Blunt ends give a crisp line, attractive geometry and work wonders on fine, straight hair to give the impression of thickness.

The shoulder length bob is another great on trend look this summer. With a variety of different layers to soften the look around the bottom, this helps to create more movement and texture. Slightly wavy hair looks great in this style too, with a sexy tousled beach-ready look. This is ideal for those with a heart-shaped face.

Bronze Ombre is big right now and offers a subtler look to the platinum on brown style. By adding these subtle metallic shades, you also give a touch of extra warmth to your skin tone. The ribbons of light golden, caramel colour at the ends give the impression of gentle sun-bleaching so you can look like a seasoned beach babe before you even pack your suitcase!
