Summer is about to fade into autumn. Rodney Wayne Creative and Education Director Newton Cook shares his top hair tips to ensure the colour and shine of your hair doesn’t fade too.
Fun in the sun can mean residual damage to your hair. UV, chlorine, ocean salt and super styling to compete with summer heat can leave faded colour, hair lacking condition and prone to breakage. Now is the perfect time to recondition those locks and refresh your style for the coming season.
New Season Style and Colour Hair Tips
“Balayage colouring is more popular than ever,” Newton reveals. “Incorporating multi-dimensional colour into your next colour service with tones of auburn and strawberry blonde will keep you up to date and on trend through our fall season”.
Newton advises working with your stylist to find the right colour to suit your skin tone and keep you looking radiant through the season. “Ask your stylist for the Balayage ‘money piece’ – face-framing highlights that start at the root and continue to the ends of the hair – to bring your colour back alive. I suggest keeping that quite poppy and bright to enhance your facial glow”.
A hot styling tip for the season from Newton is all about bigger, looser waves. “Really utilise your heat styler to achieve effortless waves, taking bigger horizontal sections when curling and waving to achieve a more voluminous, ‘undone’ curl. To avoid hair feeling flat this autumn, finish off your curls with a blast of the cool button from your hairdryer to keep the wave lasting longer.”
Home Treatment Hair Tips
For tired and ‘run down’ hair after summer, Newton recommends Kérastase home treatments. “Through autumn, hair can be lacklustre after the environmental challenges of summer. It’s important to ensure you’ve got a fantastic hair regimen at home to ensure you don’t face the repercussions of summer”.
Kérastase Résistance Extentioniste Bain and Fondant are top of his list. “This is not only a fantastic range to use when growing your hair to support new growth, but also for ensuring that hair that has been weakened after sun damage doesn’t break.”
Another essential for your home hair kit is with Kérastase Initialiste. Newton advises, “Pairing the Extensioniste shampoo and conditioner with Kérastase Initialiste serum will promote optimum health for new hair that’s coming through and strengthen weakened hair”.
