3 Good Reasons to Keep It Long

With summer well on its way, it's easy to make spur of the moment decisions to go in for the chop, here are three reasons why we think you should keep your hair long just a little bit longer...

Loose and Lovely

Surfer-girl waves are back in the limelight this summer and what better way to style your messy, laid back look than with long and loose locks? Team up your sun-kissed highlights with gentle waves for a fuss-free and low maintenance look that will see you through your beach adventure by spritzing your hair with salt water and a texturizing spray. Can't be fussed to fiddle with heat styling tools? Sleeping with damp hair in a braid and unleash natural waves in the morning!

Pretty as a Ballerina

The classic bun has seen its fair share of stylish transformations over the past year, from the revival of the classic ballerina bun, to the invention of the top-knot and the under braided bun, you can't go wrong wrapping your hair up to stay cool this summer.

Take your bun to the next level by wearing it super tight and high up. Make sure not a strand is left out of place by applying a wet-look gel for a sleek and smooth finish.

Under Wraps

Never underestimate the power a decent plait. Make 2017 the year of the braid and experiment with all that this low maintenance hair styling technique has to offer, especially as it's incredibly easy to braid long hair. From the simple French plait to a fishtail braid, it's all about getting your hair wrapped up and looking lush this summer. Feel the summer breeze on your neck by wearing your locks up in a braided crown or milkmaid braids this summer, which is also the perfect up-do to sport at a music festival.
