Wet vs sleek, ponytails vs braids! Hair trends for Spring/Summer 2017 are all about texture and glossy shine! Read up on how to achieve these runway-ready looks.
This season’s hottest look is wet hair! A look that was all over Spring/Summer 2017 Fashion Week and has been seen on Kim Kardashian, Shay Mitchell and Gigi Hadid.
Yes, that just caught in the rain look is easily achievable and manageable!
Bee, Artistic Designer at Live True London hair salon Putney, explains how to achieve this look …
This look requires you to wash your hair and leave it wet when styling.
Style hair by combing it back, into a side part, forward and slicked across the face (Kendall Jenner on the Runway at Givenchy) or leave your curls to fall naturally.
For the dripping-wet effect, apply Redken Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam from the roots to the mid-lengths to achieve a firm hold!
Finish off with Redken Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist to preserve the wet looking shine you are lusting after!
Time to grab your hair straightener and heat protective spray, because straight and sleek centre parted hair is a big trend for SS17.
This look is best achieved on hair with length and a classic straight cut! Think Gigi and Bella stepping out in Milan with poker straight hair.
Apply Redken 11 Iron Shape Thermal Holding Spray before using your flat iron. Apply Redken Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist after you have styled the hair to add a finishing shine.
The low, effortless, sleek ponytail (as mentioned in Hair Trends from London Fashion Week) is this season’s trend that’s easy to style and is just simply glamorous!
Softly brush through the hair. Gather the hair at the nape of the neck and secure with a hair tie.
Add a romantic flair to this look by securing a ribbon around the hair tie to accentuate this classic look, as seen on models for Monique Lhuillier and Jacquemus.

BRAIDS AND PLAITS
Spring/Summer 17 is all about French and Dutch braids. A versatile look, as adding a braid to any hair style can take your look from day to night or urban to chic.
However, we are crushing on small accent braids as seen on the runway at Roberto Cavalli. A cute addition to your Spring hair, accent braids add texture and a bohemian feel to your hairstyle.
You can part the hair into sections and start braiding, otherwise, add small braids throughout the hair and let them subtly peak out.
Claire, our braid queen at Live True London hair salon Vauxhall, suggests spraying Redken Quick Dry 18 Finishing Spray on the braids to ensure they remain secure throughout the day.
Hair accessories emerged as a trend for Spring 2017. Models on the runway at Bottega Veneta, Marchesa and Fendi walked down the runway donning a variety of pins, clips, and bows. This year, the trend is to wear the accessories to the side of your head, either at the ear or just behind it.
Not only do hair accessories help secure the hair, but they add a sparkling feminine touch to any hair style.
