The summer holiday season is upon us and whilst we always look forward to a week of sun, sea and sangria, the thought of battling with our hair in warmer climates can be a bit of a nightmare! Below you will find my top styles and products to pack in your suitcase that will leave you feeling red carpet ready no matter how hot the temperature is on holiday!

First things first – when on holiday I would always advise that you work with the natural texture of your hair as this will stop humidity from undoing all your hard work when creating a gorgeous hairstyle (we all know how frustrating it is to leave the hotel with flawless hair only for it to frizz within minutes of being in a humid climate!).

Without further ado, here are my top tips for red carpet holiday hair.

Key Looks for the Beach and the Bar

The low nape ponytail – worn either super glossy and sleek or glossy and curly.

The messy bun – curl your hair then put into a ponytail to the back of one ear, take subsections and loosely pin back towards the base of the ponytail.

The fishtail braid – a simple two strand plait (use the same technique as a normal three strand plait) worn too one side of your head.

Key Products for Red Carpet Holiday Hair Care

A blow drying serum/oil for anti-humidity to create super glossy smooth hair and to control frizz and softness such as Kerastase elixir oil.

A heat protection spray to help prevent heat damage and to lock in the desired shape/texture such as the KMS hotflex spray.

An anti-humidity hair spray – to set the finished result for your red carpet evening such as the Eufora uplift hairspray

Happy holiday and here’s to fabulous hair the whole way through your summer break!
