Summer is the season we’re all out about, attending barbecues, holidaying or catching up with friends of a balmy evening… so make sure you’re looking on point with these warm weather haircare tips from the stylist to the stars, Kevin Murphy.
What are your tips for keeping hair in good condition during summer?
Making sure you switch to a more hydrating shampoo and conditioner, and incorporate a masque once a week, especially if you are swimming a lot. You could even use a leave-in treatment if your hair is quite moisture-depleted, as you generally spend more time outside in the warmer weather, and the sun can really dry out your hair. You need to make sure you are replacing that hydration constantly.
What are shaping up to be summer’s hottest hairdos?
It’s all about curls and texture this season. Hair is looking more natural than ever!
How can I recreate these at home?
Easily! You need to make sure you use the right product that enhances and works with your natural texture.
Where have these trends come from?
Trends start everywhere. I can take inspiration from a lot of different places and create a hair shape out of it. Looking at fashion runways every season from around the world, you start to see what necklines, colours and eras are coming through and I like to play around with shapes that work with that, or go completely opposite. It really depends. I am lucky I get to travel so much and I love people-watching – you see a lot of inspiration on the streets.
Finally, your insights into the eternal hair struggle – how do I get rid of hat hair fast??
I think the only way is, if you wear a hat, you need to carry a dry shampoo with you and the second you remove the hat, freshen your hair up with KEVIN.MURPHY FRESH.HAIR dry shampoo. Shake it through and get rid of hat hair by adding some texture.
