The current British weather is harder to keep up with than the Kardashians. But with a heatwave on the horizon, finding haircuts for hot weather is a smart way to go.
The humid weather is leaving our hair looking pretty damn wild but according to one hairdresser, there are three specific haircuts you can opt for during the heatwave if you fancy a breezy cut to see you through the summer.
Suzie McGill, Artistic Director at Rainbow Room International, has shared three of the best heatwave and humidity-proof haircuts for hot weather that you can ask for in salon to help you beat the heat.
The power pixie
“The pixie cut is the ultimate hairstyle to showcase your facial features and to make your eyes really pop. However, this hairstyle is also fantastic for the heatwave weather we’re experiencing at the moment,” explains Suzie. As anyone with long hair knows, it can be an absolute nightmare in the summer but the pixie cut is the ideal humidity-proof option because your hair is kept out of your face and requires little styling; plus, it won’t get stuck to your back like a ponytail would.
“Ask your hairdresser to add some layers within your pixie cut, which will also remove some of the excess hair and allow it to feel even lighter on your head,” she suggests. The at-home maintenance is super low-key, too. “Simply spritz some of your favourite heat protection spray or a texturising spray such as a salt spray to add texture and give your hair hold for a funky look, whilst also providing protection from the sun rays.
