3 hot weather hair and makeup tricks to save you this summer
It’s a glorious time of year, filled with sunshine, barbecues and balmy nights. It’s when fun is at an all-time high – and unfortunately for some of us, so is the heat.
Humidity is one of the biggest hurdles when it comes to looking hot (not literally) during the summer months. But that doesn’t mean your hair and make-up needs to suffer. Arm yourself with these summer-saving tricks to stay fabulous (not frazzled) when the temperature soars.
#1: Combat flatness
In summer, hair tends to take on a signature look: flat, dull and a little sticky. Be proactive and prep your strands with a set of hair heightening products that give your hair the kind of volume we all know and love. We like Fudge Big Hair Mega Hair Milk, as it works to tame frizz and smooth hair, leaving it with increased volume and mega shine. To give your tresses an instant refresh – and a little volume at the roots to boot – try Pantene Pro-V Dry Shampoo - Original Fresh. It uses tapioca to absorb oil and freshen up hair.
#2: Sweep it off your neck
Nothing’s worse than having your hair hanging around your neck and shoulders when it’s a billion degrees outside. It makes you feel gross and sweaty – when you are anything but! Nix that feeling by exploring summer-ready styles that sweep your strands off your face, such as high buns, ponytails, and side braids. To make any style sit perfectly, try the VS Sassoon Curl Secret. It works to create perfect curls and just the right amount of movement – without any skill from you!
#3: Make it sweat-proof
When you’re out and about in the sun, it pays to look for products that defend against sweat. Ultraderm All In One Balm SPF15+ is a skin-enhancing cream containing moisturisers and antioxidants to make sure skin looks and feels fresh and healthy. It’ll also help to keep your foundation in place all day. If you’re after a foundation to go with your balm, Lycogel Breathable Camouflage is a special formulation that not only allows skin to breathe, but also provides a natural, flawless finish that won’t budge! For long-lasting eye make-up, try Australis Cray for Colour Eyeshadow Sticks. With bold pigment and a waterproof formula, they’re the perfect product for any summer eye look. For a bit of added movement, try using nak body•n•shine sea salt root lift, as it delivers a sea-soaked effect and helps to protect your hair from humidity.
