ARE YOU READY FOR A “BANG”ING SUMMER? Seen in Harpers Bazaar

The 13 hairstyles you’ll see everywhere this summer

There’s a cliché that summer is the best time to go blonde. While you can go lighter at any point throughout the year, there’s something about the warmer months that inspires women to make a change.

Come December, we’re sure to see a few more blondes about town. However, there are plenty of other hair trends on the rise, too. Here, we tap a few of Sydney’s best hairdressers for their two cents on the trending styles of spring/summer 2019.

LOW MAINTENANCE BANGS

Anthony Nader, Salon Owner and Creative Director at RAW Anthony Nader:
“Bangs are a game changer and it shows that you can still have a longer hair shape, but still have some shorter lengths framing your face. I find that most of my clients love longer bangs cause there cool and easy to style which is so important. Push them back, sweep them forward, you decide.”

CHOPPY CROPS

Anthony Nader, Salon Owner and Creative Director at RAW Anthony Nader:
“I think Kate Hudson’s choppy textured haircut is every woman’s hair crush—I see this in my salon, and rightly so. Its short and still oozes sex appeal! The beauty about Kate’s haircut is that you have the choice if you want to wear it slick one day, or textured and cute the next. It’s like asking your hairstylist for a two in one style.”

TEXTURED ‘COOL GIRL’ BOBS

Anthony Nader, Salon Owner and Creative Director at RAW Anthony Nader:
“Dua Lipa’s graphic ‘cool girl bob’ is the perfect example of how you can wear this haircut and not look like a nanna. Keep the texture “undone” rather than restricted and poker straight. Dua’s bob is definitely on my radar—girls are already asking for this and it’s not even summer yet!”

LONG ’60S INSPIRED FRINGE

Alex Fuchs, National Education Director at La Biosthetique Australia and Director at Fuchs Salon:
“A must for summer to change long hair looks up is the long textured ’60s inspired fringe as seen on Gigi Hadid. Brigitte Bardot’s bangs make a comeback over and over again nearly every year as it is a flattering look and can also be swiped to the side quickly again.”

HIGH PONYTAILS

Alex Fuchs, National Education Director at La Biosthetique Australia and Director at Fuchs Salon:
“The retro style high ponytail, as seen on Bella Hadid, is for sure making a comeback and alongside it the scrunchie—who would believe that? Reason for that is that we are seeing a lot of 90s influence also now back now in hair trends.”

MESSY BUN

Alex Fuchs, National Education Director at La Biosthetique Australia and Director at Fuchs Salon:
“The big summer trend I predict is the messy bun, as we just saw on Megan Markle at Wimbledon. It’s a very soft look and is suitable for most face shapes. Everyone can do themselves—that’s why it’s ideal for summer.”

WRAPPED IN A SCARF

Paloma Garcia, Salon Owner and Master Stylist at PALOMA:
“This look has just started and is only getting more popular—it’s easy, convenient and flattering. You can go designer or op shop when shopping for your new scarf accessory. Bold or patterned, there really are no rules! Hair all up or done, fringe in or out. Fold the scarf length wise to make it like a 3cm band, place the middle at the nap of the head, and bring it around the perimeter of the hairline and tie at the front of your hairline above the forehead. You can tie or make a little bow, pulled it around to the side.”

THE ’70S SHAG

Paloma Garcia, Salon Owner and Master Stylist at PALOMA:
“This is ‘the haircut’ for this summer. It’s long yet sits anywhere between the nipple and two inches below the collar bone; it’s heavily layered yet so loose and soft through the ends. It has strong layering all around the face. It has a full fringe or centre part drop fringe. It’s the ultimate wash and wear look. It’s a ‘strong’ haircut although so effortless.”

BLUNT ’90S BOB

Joey Scandizzo, Co-Creative Director of ELEVEN Australia:
“This style works well with a middle part or accentuated side part to show off the internal layers and movement. How short you go will depend on your bone structure, but the short, blunt bob works with all hair types from wavy to straight. The key to this cut is keeping the exterior or bottom line blunt, because that’s where the drama comes from.”

SUPER LONG HAIR

Joey Scandizzo, Co-Creative Director of ELEVEN Australia:
“Pulling off this look starts with the right haircut, for this extreme long hair look ask your hairstylist for a definitely line at the base. Next, it’s all down to what you do at home, because super long hair looks best when it’s healthy and well maintained. Make sure you add protein to your hair as well as moisture.”
