3 good reasons to keep it long

Summer is finally here and although it may seem like the right time to give your mane the chop, we beg to differ. Indeed, even in the heat wave, there are plenty of good reasons to keep those locks on the longer side.

Lovely loose locks

This summer, surfer-girl hair is back in. Deliciously messy and laid back, the style is all about a natural look with maximum impact. Think sun-kissed beaches and surf's up! Those gentle waves are what you're after to complete the look. Minimum fuss and low maintenance make it the perfect holiday hair. With salt water and a little help from L'Oréal Professionnel Beach Waves texturing spray you'll have instant beach-babe hair. And no need to pack the blow dryer!

Best of buns

Even with length, keep cool this summer. Staying ultra-feminine, the trick is to go for a high ponytail, wrap it around and form the most perfect of buns. Go tight for a strong hold, and keep every last strand out of the way. For a modern, cutting-edge twist to the ballerina style, use a little bit of Extreme Splash Wet Domination gel to add a matte, shiny side. Demure yet funky, the wet-look bun will keep you feeling fresh and looking hot.

Braid-y bunches

2017 was definitely the year of the braid. And, as we know, braids are easier with long locks. Whether you go for a braided crown to frame your face, or for the more traditional fishtail braid, it's all about getting that long hair under wraps and weaving it into a stylish plait. To feel the summer breeze on your neck, why not take a leaf out of Giorgio Armani's runway show and combine both bun and braid trends, pinning hair up into a chic, braided chignon.
