Summer Braids and Plaits

Music festival-goer Fearne Cotton’s casual side plait and Pixie Lott’s braided hairstyle look effortlessly chic.  This Summer the focus is on stylish low maintenance hair so plaits and braids remain a firm favourite.  For a more formal evening hairstyle sweep your hair up into a plaited top knot like Nicole Richie.

Mid-Length or Long Hair for Summer

The blunt long bob (or lob), as worn by ex Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts, is a hot look for Summer and great if you have shoulder-length hair.  Or simply scrunch dry the ends or pop in to Steven Scarr so we can help you achieve the latest on-trend tousled wavy hairstyle with a curly blow dry.

If you want instant long hair then Racoon Hair Extensions can add more volume or a subtle or not-so-subtle colour change.  We can add pops of colour with our crazy fashion colours and we even do clip in hair extensions!

Hair Colour Trends for Summer

Summer is the time to have fun, fun fun so why not experiment with a crazy hair colour too?  Our stylists at Steven Scarr Hairdressing love using their hair colouring expertise to create today’s fun hair colours.

Follow the trend for pastel hair colours this Summer and make a statement with blue, pink, green or purple hair.

If a permanent new hair colour is not for you, try a non-permanent hair colour.  We use L’Oréal’s new Colour Pop which naturally fades away in up to 10 shampoos and keeps your hair looking healthy and shiny.

Blonde is another great Summer hair colour trend and it seems that just about anyone can go blonde these days.  Our hair stylists will help you find the right shade to suit your base colour and will help you choose between uplights, lowlights, block colour or dip dye/ombre. 

Perhaps you want to lift your hair colour by adding rich caramel blonde tones like Jennifer Aniston, or maybe you prefer the on-trend ombre or reverse ombre colours.  Khloe Kardashian’s Ombre features gradual shading from the roots to the hair ends, while Gwyneth Paltrow’s Reverse Ombre has lighter hair at the roots.

Hair Care Tips for Summer

The sun’s rays damage the hair by reducing its strength and shine. This results in dry and brittle hair and split ends.  Here at Steven Scarr Hairdressing we can protect your hair from the sun’s damaging effects with our revolutionary hair smoothing system called Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy.  Keratin is infused deep into the hair cuticle which helps to eliminate 95% of frizz and curl. The hair is left softer, smoother and shinier.  The results last up to three months so you’ll have fabulous looking hair all Summer long!
