SPRING IS IN THE HAIR!
Post by Hannah Tyrrell
That squeaky clean wash, bouncy blowdry or fresh cut – ‘new’ hair is one of the best feelings! Full of life and confidence, it’s a sure-fire way to make you feel brand new. But fresh hair every day just isn’t realistic! With that in mind, we’re hoping to bring out the best in your barnet with a guide to easy SS17 hair trends (with an emphasis on day-old do’s) that’ll transform your hair in a flash…
Due to their wearability and versatility, braids have been popular for as long as we can remember – and spring/summer is no exception. From a chic French plait at work to boxer braids come festival season, the possibilities are endless! Half-up, all up, front braid or side plait, these beauties are a true hair BFF. Haven’t got a lot of hair to plait? Go boho with a couple of cute braids between messy, tousled locks. Gorge!
Another super versatile trend for SS17 is the bun. Messy, chignon, top knot – there are so many varieties, it’s no wonder it’s a firm favourite for any occasion. Disguise day-old hair with a full or half-up bun, but prep properly with a slick or spritz of Living Proof’s Prime Style Extender when you wash. Designed to maintain freshly cleaned hair for longer, it repels dirt and oil to help dirty hair feel much cleaner.

Why not combine braids and buns for a slightly trickier updo a la Dior?
Retro fashion is back, and with it retro hair! Bubble braids and crimped hair offer edgy alternatives to classic braids and curls. We think they’re perfect for a care-free spring/summer vibe – why not give it a go?
Hair for days
The celebrity world has gone OTT for this extra long hair trend and we just love it! Super easy to achieve (if you’ve got long hair) just rock clean, natural locks, with a poker straight finish. To achieve an even sleeker look, leave in a squidge of Living Proof Restore Instant Repair conditioner. A split-end saviour, it’ll smooth hair to perfection and leave you with silky locks Kim herself would be proud of!
Sleek, sleek, sleek – this style is certainly one for the office. Uber sophisticated and classy, it’s a great day-old do to rock after an extra-long Kim K.W-style hair do. Take inspiration from Tibi’s SS17 show and combine your sleek pony with a chic accessory. If a belt isn’t quite your bag, try a simple hair tie or equally on-trend embellished accessory!
