Summer Lust List: What We’re Loving This Month

From to A to Beach: Summer-proofing your hair

Swimming, sunshine and salt water- all ingredients for a perfect summer day, but they all play havoc with your hair, especially if you colour it. And so just as you wouldn’t dream of leaving your skin unprotected in the sun, you should take a few steps to look after your hair, too. That’s why Aveda’s Sun Care Hair and Body Cleanser is one of our summer holiday essentials. Containing organic coconut oil to help boost moisture levels, it gently removes any traces of chlorine, salt or product. Follow with Sun Care After-Sun Hair Masque to restore and repair frazzled locks. Head scarves or knotted hair bands are also a great way to protect your hair (and scalp), and channel your inner Brigitte Bardot. We love this one from Accessorize. Voilà, instant poolside glamour.

Stock up for your holidays and buy Sun Care Hair and Body Cleanser and Sun Care After-Sun Hair Masque in the salon (£43.50 for the set) and for a limited time you'll also receive a very chic striped beach tote and a travel-sized Texture Tonic, free!

Wine, anyone?

Now we’ve got your attention! We’ve been toasting these long balmy evenings with a chilled glass or two of award-winning rosé from local producers Off the Line and may just have discovered our new favourite summer tipple. Off the Line produce 3 different still rosés, and not only are they fantastic to drink (we particularly love the Provencal-esque Hip Rosé), the branding, inspired by the hedgerows that border their East Sussex vineyard, is just really, really cool. It’s definitely worth making a trip out to see them for a guided tour of the vineyard or tasting, but in the meantime if you’re in the salon on the last Saturday of each month over summer for an appointment, or just to stock up on some product, you’ll get a chance to taste some for yourself. As long as we can keep our hands off it that is…

Summer Hair Goals

If you bought last week’s Grazia magazine you would have seen this beautiful shoot, with hair styled by our very own stylist to the stars Liam, using Aveda. We just love these beachy waves. In between his styling work for the glossies Liam is in the salon on Fridays and Saturdays.

Salon style at home

GHD’s impressive range of stylers, wands and tongs and hairdryers have now landed at Shine! Brilliant for creating long-lasting styles without overheating your hair, the GHD range has always been a firm favourite with us, so we’re thrilled that you can now buy them in the salon or online to use at home. Whether you’re looking to recreate festival style waves or achieve sleek and smooth hair day in, day out, there’s a GHD styler that will help you get the look. Just ask your stylist which one will work best for you and your hair.
