Gigi Hadid at beach

We all know slathering on sunscreen before a beach run is a no-brainer – but what about sun protection for your hair? If you’re not wearing a hat, then yep, your strands need UV protection says Sydney trichologist David Salinger.”UV light does two bad things. It breaks some of the bonds in the hair which can weaken it, and lead to breakage. Secondly it oxidises the pigment in the hair making it lighter in colour”.

Start your damage control now by using UV technology haircare, these products work by absorbing the UV rays and preventing them from penetrating your precious strands.

As the weather warms up, our hair becomes more vulnerable to the sun’s harmful rays. It’s all about maintaining strong follicles from the inside out, with a good shampoo and conditioner and also I suggest using a treatment two to three times a week for extra hydration to maintain healthy hair. Use the treatment after shampooing, there’s no need to condition as well, and blondes, listen up – your crowning glory needs even more shielding in the hotter months as honey shades become brassy as the colour fades. I recommend a hair toner, products specifically for coloured hair like violet based shampoo and conditioner which enhances lightened hair and stops yellowness. You can get a toner treatment in the salon which lasts up to 24 washes.

Secret hair tips from George1. Hair masks need heat. Apply one and leave it on in the bath. If you have really damaged hair, the longer you leave it on the better. Wrap cling wrap around it and sit in the sun – the heat helps activate it. Check the the treatment story – Top 4 Treatments

2. Go easy on the straighteners. People make the mistake rough drying their hair and then pull the straighteners through. The secret is to blow dry your hair (even if you’re curling it) as well as you possibly can first. Then pop your straightener on it. They’re there to aid you – not to be relied on.

Straightened Hair tips

3. Use a shine serum. The secret is to rub it into your hands, like hand cream, and almost get rid of it – then apply. Less is always more, you can always go back and reapply, but too much will appear greasy.

4. Special occasion? You need to cut it three weeks before the event and colour it two weeks before. Allow time to tweak or fix if necessary!

5. Colouring – A general guide. The lighter your complexion, the lighter your hair colour should be. The more olive your complexion, the darker your hair colour should be. The more ash your complexion, the more warmth your hair colour needs. The more warmth in your complexion, the more ash your hair needs to be.

6. When should you use your frizz fighting products? Always on damp hair, before blow drying. The ingredients absorb far better into the wet strands than when they are applied on dry hair.

7. Always use a wide-tooth comb on wet hair. If you cheat and use a fine-tooth comb or a brush, it can stretch, and even snap the hair strand.

8. The golden rule is, less is more. Never overload your hair with product, as it will only weigh down strands.

Winter Hair

Snip Secrets

The problem : You’re trying to grow out your summer crop, but it looks thin and stringy rather than long and luscious.

The remedy : Cutting isn’t going to change the actual condition of your hair, regular snips will perk up the overall look and shape of your grown out style. Hairdressers unanimously agree on visiting the salon approximately every 6-8 weeks for medium to long hair, and every 4 weeks for shorter styles.

Sort Split Ends

The problem : Indoor heating has left your hair dry and prone to breakage.

The remedy : Dehydrated and brittle strands are generally a result of both environmental (a drop in temperature outside) and physical factors (the overuse of colour and bleach, or heated styling), which weaken your hair cuticle causing split ends and snapping. To prepare your stands for the cold, care for them at home with the right cleansing regime : shampoo, conditioner and a weekly treatment.

 

Winter Hair

 

Boost Body

The problem : The chill has left you feeling flat, but you don’t want your hair to look that way.

The remedy : To get the volume you want, its important to concur your strands while they’re wet. I suggest starting with a light weight volume building shampoo and conditioner. Fine hair tends to hold more moisture, so go easy on styling products. Steering clear of heavy serums (which rob your strands of body), and choosing light-hold mousses and mists instead. For weightless volume on the go, dry shampoo is essential for adding texture, grip and bulk to slippery fine hair.

Fight Frizz

The problem : Your winter woollens leave your wavy hair a static mess.

The remedy : The best way to control frizz is to use a hydrating shampoo, conditioner and weekly mask. This doesn’t mean you should drown them in rich conditioners and styling products – as these will weigh down your lengths. For the ultimate taming tool you can’t go past serums, which eliminate frizz, repel humidity and seals the hair’s cuticle to smooth waves for a glossy, frizz-free style. Try to avoid contact with coarse scarves, sweaters and coats which can contribute to fuzziness.

Justin timberlake haircut slicked

The 1990s inspired wet look is fast becoming one of the most up to the minute ways to wear your hair.

Not every hair texture and cut can pull it off – those with a fine to medium hair and a high fade or an undercut are in a prime position to nail the style.

 

mens long hairstyles slicked-back

 

Slicking your hair straight back without a part is a good look, but it can feel a little severe. A side part can soften things up a bit. Make sure the neck is clean shaven and be mindful if you have longer hair as it can appear mullet-y. This style works well on a fresh haircut.

 

Slick hairstyle trends

 

  • How to styleThe right product is important
  • Pomades – Keeping the hair shiny and in place (Oil and water based product which will give you more shine)
  • Waxes – Allow you to have control over your style with minimal effort, and because of its matte finish it will leave your hair with a natural appearance.
  • Application – On damp hair distribute the product evenly right through to the back hairline.
    For a Don Draper from Mad Men look a comb is necessary to part and direct the hair to the side. A backhand mirror also helps to evenly slick the hair especially around the crown area where it is difficult to see.
    Alternatively rub the product in your palms and spread it back away from your face for a more casual look.
  • The secret – The key to keeping it looking fresh all day is to not touch it or fiddle as it will separate the slick.

You will never see grey hair models in magazines that’s because the companies that advertise in these publications don’t want you to.

I am often asked “can I grow out my hair colour and go grey?”

Yes you can only if you’re 100% white (grey). You see white hair mixed with your natural colour looks ageing but a full head of grey can look very chic. Because grey hair has no pigment and keratin it will frizz and look dry. You need a good shaped haircut (consider a short hair style when going grey), good products and effort to keep it looking styled or it will never work.

 

Meryl Streep Grey Hair

 

Grey hair needs toning otherwise it will start to stain from pollution, smoke, chlorine, etc.  A deep violet pigmented shampoo and conditioner will neutralise these unwanted tones or a toner from your hairdresser can do the trick instantly.

My final advice to look fabulously grey is styling. If it is not smoothed out and lacks product it will fuzz. There are a few grey headed clients who I have come across that won’t need to remember all of the above as it naturally looks silvery, white and smooth.

Jennifer Lopez Curly Hair

 

Embrace your bounce by defining and emphasising your kinks.

Cut: 

The trick to mastering manageable curls is to select a style that will complement your curls rather than fight against them. Ask your hairdresser to banish bulk with a low maintenance cut that takes weight out of length while encouraging natural movement and bounce. Avoid high maintenance styles that requires too much blowdrying, as it will only dehydrate your strands.

 

Short Curly Hair

 

Colour:

Dark solid shades can make your kinks appear heavy, so add definition by lightening your lengths a little. Don’t be tempted to try all-over bleaching as your hair type is already naturally dry and it will increase dehydration, making it prone to breaking and frizz.

Style:

Using a wide tooth comb, evenly distribute a curl-enhancing product through damp hair and then twist to add shape. Invest in a diffuser attachment for your hairdryer – an essential tool for creating perfect curls – and gently place small sections of your hair inside the diffuser while you blast, leaving them to dry.  Finish by running a few drops of serum or oil through your strands to keep them frizz free and shiny.

Care:

Nourish your strands without wearing them down, with a curl specific shampoo and moisture rich conditioner. A weekly hydrating mask and leave-in conditioner will also help keep your hair hydrated and fight fluffiness.
