And the best news? There’s a plethora of summer hair trends to suit every style and texture. The biggest trend of summer 2021? Texture in all its many forms. From fluffed-out fros for Afro hair and giant waves for people with thick ends to loads and loads of layers big, sexy texture is quite literally going to be massive – and according to one hairdresser, there’s one trend in particular that will reign supreme.
According to Dylan Brittain, Owner of Rainbow Room International’s George Square Salon, ‘salty waves’ will dominate this summer – and they’re so easy to master and maintain, which is welcome news seeing as we’ve lost a lot of patience this year.
“Salty waves are the ultimate summer hairstyle that requires little to no styling,” he explains. Think sexy, crispy (in a good way) beach waves that look like you’ve just stepped out of the sea.
So how can we master them at home without the actual sea?
“My favourite way to create this look is by firstly washing your hair with some volumising shampoo to give your hair body and volume and then scrunching some mousse or sea salt spray into damp hair and leaving to air dry for effortless looking waves,” suggests Dylan.
“If your hair doesn’t have a natural texture, you can also recreate this look by using crimping irons or a curling iron or hair straighteners to create soft waves before finishing with a texturising spray to give the waves more of a messy and natural look.”
We’re all for a simple, sexy summer hair style.
To achieve salty waves, it’s essential to invest in a good salt spray. Not only are they the ultimate time-saving product, allowing a spritz-and-go approach to hair styling, they also add texture, grip, volume and movement to all hair types.
That’s right, as Dylan has emphasised, sea salt spray works best when applied to damp hair and then blow-dried or left to air-dry. This way it will help to define and set your natural waves as they appear, similar to when you actually go for a dip in the ocean and then dry off in the sun.
When applied to dry hair, more product is usually needed to achieve the same effect, which often results in accidental overload and that not-so-nice crunch.
