Summer Hair Trends

Summer Hair Trends from Voodou, Liverpool

With the days getting longer and the weather getting warmer we are happy to finally start thinking about the summer! The stylists from Voodou hairdressers in Liverpool have put together what looks they are loving for the summer months ahead and which hairstyles for summer are going to be the most popular.


“The most important thing for summer hair is making sure it’s protected”, says Art Director Suzy Lunn. Voodou loves Wella SP’s After Sun range which actively protects hair after sun exposure protecting it from drying-out. The After Sun range also immediately provides noticeable softness making it the perfect range to take away on holiday to ensure your hair is manageable while you’re away. 

If you are heading away this summer Voodou’s stylists recommend booking in a haircut the week before you go, as freshly cut hair reduces the risk of split ends that can be caused when hair dries out in the sun. Having your hair cut just before your holiday also makes it more manageable which can be one of the biggest stresses for some people.

Summer Hair Trend: Plaits and Braids

Always a fun look for summer, braids and plaits are not only great at keeping hair off your face, but they can be simple and easy to do at home. A great way to add a bit of something to your hair style if it’s down loose, a plait or braid is a gorgeous summer hair trend this year. Miami’s Coachella Festival was full of plaits and braids this year with celebrities such as Katy Perry and Rita Ora loving this hair trend for summer – this year think loose messy plaits and random braids worn with long flowing hair.

Summer Hair Trend: Pastel Hair Colours

Still a huge hair trend for summer 2013, pastel colours are as popular as they were last season. These bright hues can be a big change, so if you’re slightly worried about taking the plunge why not go for a semi permanent colour like La Riche’s Directions range or even a dip dye. We’re loving baby pinks, blues and lilacs which are still really popular at the moment.

If you are going on holiday and have coloured hair, make sure you take with you a hair range that is colour safe and conditions – to protect your hair from UV rays, chlorine and sea water. The System Professional range from Wella is perfect and you can buy a UV Spray from Voodou which is brilliant for holiday hair.

Summer Hair Trend: Long Classic Bobs

When the temperatures start rising (we hope!) a length chop can often feel much more refreshing and cooler for over the summer months. Great news is that bobs are a huge summer hair trend this year with the long classic bob being the most popular.

Celebrities like Eva Longoria, and Cheryl Cole all look gorgeous with long classic bobs, proving what a gorgeous look the hot summer trend is. The key to a good long classic bob is to get the length the same all the way around. Whereas the graduated bob is shorter at the back, this years hair summer trend has a symmetrical finish right the way around.

Summer Hair Trend: Ombre and Reverse Dip-Dye’s

The ombre and dip-dye trend has been huge over the last 12 months and it’s going to be bigger than ever this summer. Reverse dip-dyes, which are lighter on the top and go darker towards the ends, are a hugely popular summer hair style trend and our stylists are loving it! Colour smudging techniques are a more subtle way of blending two colours together to create a softer, more wearable look which is a very popular summer hairstyle trend this year. Ask one of our colour experts about colour smudging, ombres and reverse dip-dyes for a gorgeous summer hair trend.

Summer Hair Trend: The Unkempt Look

To many people leaving the house with messy looking hair would be their idea of a nightmare – but this year the unkempt look is one of the biggest summer hair trends on the catwalk. A look that has originated from festival goers think loose waves, back-combing, and an all round bed-head feel. 

Evo’s Root Canal Spray gives hair a root lift that builds body and texture, and adds volume and style improving the manageability of hair and wear ability of hair styles.
