So summer is here with a bang! I’m sure your wardrobe is ready but is your hair summer ready? It’s time to start thinking about how you can make your hair look its best! Here are a few things you may want to consider before shooting off on your hols.

Be rid of those split ends - 

There’s nothing worse than the sun shining its beautiful rays on those dry, damaged ends so let's get a haircut. It’s a great way to feel clean and fresh. 

If however you have spent the winter trying your hardest to grow your hair then our stylist at Avalon North London understands a technique called hair dusting. Hair dusting maintains the length of your hair while removing flyaway split ends. It's a way to keep your hair looking healthy while you're trying to grow it out. It can also smooth out hair that's developed a life (and split ends) of its own.

Throw some light on those locks! - 

Get a new hair colour this summer to stay up to date with the latest trends and to brighten up your look. Your Avalon stylist can recommend colours and processes that will suit you and make your hairstyle look amazing but remember to take extra care during the summer. You may find that hair when is overexposure to the sun can lead to colour fading and very dry hair! Swimming pools, sea water, more washing and styling than usual during the summer holidays can also cause a lot more damage so change up your care products, for something with a little more moisture. 

This MOMO Moisture Boost Trio floods thirsty locks with nourishment to restore hydration and enhance softness on even the most dry and dehydrated hair. From the first use, you'll notice a difference in manageability and hair will feel in tip top condition.

Invest in a hat

Invest in a hat, not only will it set off your summer look, and make you stand out from the crowd as a fashionista, but it will protect your hair and face from the sun. Plus, it's a great option to have a handy hat on bad hair days!
