We are all eagerly awaiting for this spring/summer. Lighter nights, flowers blooming and warmer weather. Hopefully we will also see some more normality (no more lock downs), which will allow us to enjoy dinner out, friend and family gatherings, nights out on the town and see more weddings happen.
To help you decide on how to style your hair, I am going to navigate you through the hair trends that look to be popular this Spring/Summer. I will also be including the opinions of some of the UK’s hottest hairstylists who I have spoken to recently. Keep reading to see what they have to say.
Bringing the beach look to us has never been so easy and, lets be honest, this year we may not get to the beach so if there is a way to bring the beach hair to us, lets embrace it.
Its a classic look that works for day and night. You can wear it to the office and then head out for drinks straight after. The best way to achieve this look is by using a texturising spray to give it volume and texture. You can prep the hair with it first as it will help to give the style some hold but texture spray is also a great finishing spray. To create the curls use either a curling wand or straighteners. You want the finished look to be loose waves. To help create this, comb out the waves with a wide toothed comb. For extra va va voom, flip your hair over to a side parting. This will add extra volume and help to achieve an over all “undone look”.
S bend wave or as I call it “The barely there wave” is an effortless summer classic. To achieve this look you can use a straightener or curling wand and add some light bends to your hair and then with a wide tooth comb, comb out the waves to create the “lived in”/ “day 3” look. This style works great on short and long hair but it is a personal favourite of mine on short/bob hair length.
Using hair pins.
Hair pins are a great accessory. Whether they are the ordinary hair grip or pearly pins. We all have a pack of hair grips lying around at home and now is the time to make the most of them. They’ve already been seen on the catwalk as a “stand out” hair accessory. They are commonly used to secure the sleek clean side-part while the other side is voluminous and full of texture. Get playful with these accessories.

Hannah Taylor- Hair By Hannah Taylor
Hannah Taylor has been hairdressing for over 17 years and has specialised in bridal hair for almost 10 years. She has an incredible following on social media and has recently shared her knowledge of bridal hair via her online education. She shares her iconic styles, her favourite products/tools and breaks down techniques so its easy to follow.
I asked Hannah what she thought would be popular among the brides this Spring/Summer. (Fingers crossed that weddings will be in full swing) Here is what Hannah said;
“I think for this spring/summer we will continue to see lots of texture, but even more so. The kind of undone “sexy” updo with soft strands left around the face. Whether its a high bun with lots of volume, or a small knotted bun in the nape of the neck, with soft strands left out for a loose romantic look. These kind of styles will stand the test of time and are so effortless. In terms of accessories, I am seeing lots of dainty pearls scattered through hairstyles and I LOVE them!! I love how they can be added to any hairstyles to really compliment the hair rather than making it look too busy.”
