Hair highlights

Make your hair your crowning glory, whatever the weather

  • Warm weather

  • Humidity

  • Windy weather


Want to keep your hair off your neck when the mercury rises but tired of the top knot? Here's how to create a chic, low-slung bun:

  • Prep your hair with a volumising mousse, 'It will give it body at the roots and add texture right through to the ends,' says JJ, Creative Stylist for Trevor Sorbie
  • Pull your hair into a tight ponytail at the nape of your neck and fasten with a band
  • Divide the ponytail into two sections, and then pull them into a bow, as if beginning to tie a shoe lace. Pin in place with a pretty hair accessory
Tip: Use the tail of a comb to pull out small pieces of hair to frame your face and create a softer look

Keep unruly humidity-hair in check with an all-over plait style:

  • Spritz clean, conditioned hair with salt spray. 'This will give it texture', says top hairstylist Lee Stafford
  • Divide into two sections with a centre parting
  • French plait each section: Start with a little hair at the front, weaving in more as you work back
  • When you reach the nape of your neck on both sides, combine the plaits together into a ponytail.
  • Combine this ponytail into a single plait down your back

Keep hair neat when the wind picks up, with this sideways twist on a classic pony.

  • Run some smoothing serum through your locks and comb into a side parting. Taking a small strand at the front and twist it away from your face "This look works like a French plait, except that you're twisting in the added sections of hair rather than plaiting them" says JJ, creative stylist for Trevor Sorbie
  • Pin and spritz each twist with a strong hair spray as you go, to help keep it secure and in place,' advises top stylist Lee
  • Finish by tying your hair in a ponytail, just behind your ear
Tip: For a more polished look, wrap and pin a piece of hair around the band, to hide it

If you want smoother skin for longer, say au revoir to razors and start a new relationship with electrical hair reduction devices, which promise ultra long-lasting smoothness. We know you have better things to do this summer than worry about battling the bristle, so we've put together our top picks that you're sure to fall head over fabulous heels in love with.

Make sure skin is well exfoliated to get the best out of your electrical device - a good scrub with a body polish the day before should do the trick.

For hair removal combined with hair growth reduction, use an IPL device with an added epilator attachment - it's the very best of both worlds.
