We’re turning our attention to the hottest summer hair trends and just had to reach out to Leo Izquierdo, hair god and co-founder of IGK, for his take on summer’s ‘mane’ trends.
What are the hottest hair cut trends for summer 2019?
“Mid-length, just below the shoulders, beachy hair is great for the summer. For this length hair, the color natural beachy blonde is still cool, but brunette is coming back as a lot of girls are wanting a more natural look. Also cool is blunt above the shoulder-length hair in platinum blonde.”
What are the must-have products to keep your locks looking luscious?
“Must have products for the summer are our new overnight hair mask Antisocial - this mask will bring your hair back to life overnight. It goes on dry hair and there’s no need to rinse, so it makes life so much easier, plus it has UV protection so great before a day in the sun - This is a summer essential.”
More products that are great for the summer:
“Thirsty Girl leave in conditioner coconut spray for UV and heat protection for your hair and extra hydration.”
“Mixed Feelings purple drops to remove the brassiness from the blonde that the sun gives.”
“And of course, Beach Club texture spray to create the perfect beachy waves!”
Barrettes and hair accessories are all the rage. Any tips for styling these trends?
“Hair clips and hair accessories are cool at the moment and a big trend, [you could add them to any hair] style, whether it be sleek and straight from using Good Behavior spirulina smoothing spray or a super volume look with Next Level Nordic cotton volumizing spray. Of course, beachy waves are always good for the summer so, [the] best way to achieve this look would be to prime the hair with Thirsty Girl to protect, use Beach Club to give texture or First Class dry shampoo can be used to create this effect also. If you have natural waves, Rich Kid coconut oil gel is the go-to product to perfect your natural hair.”
