Summer Holiday Hairstyles 2021

The much-awaited heatwave is almost here and we’re so looking forward to it. Now with the shops, pubs and public places back open, people have started going out and about frequently and honestly, we love to see it. Everyone is busy booking their holidays and vacations, picking out dresses and we’ve come up with one of the most useful and important lists for you. Your summer holiday hair ideas! It can get a little frustrating at times when you can't decide what type of hairstyle goes the best with your outfit, when you're out, at the airport, at a dinner party and so on.. Don't worry we’ve got your back!

To make it a little easier for you, we’ve separated this post into four parts based on the occasion, place and time

Got to nail that airport look!! 

We all have that friend or a family member who wants to reach the airport six hours before a flight! Everyone’s running around and it's getting rushed and you still have to decide how to style your hair because hello who said you can't look cute while travelling. 

Most of the time, people pick up comfortable sweat suits and loungewear while travelling especially when it's a long run to your final destination. We suggest going with a messy bun is the best way to go. Easy, efficient and does the job. You can also twist your hair up and put on a small clutch to give it a more trendy look. Pull out some strands along the side of your face and voila! You're good to go.

Take me where the water is

Do you know the word that best resonates with Summer? WATER! duh! While you’re out on vacation, a big chunk of your day is spent alongside the pool/beach or doing stuff like cycling, hiking etc. You should keep the hair out of your face while out in the sun or (shade)

Two top knot braids - Very much in trend right now it's the perfect hairstyle to match it with a swimsuit and beach shorts. It gives off a very chill vibe and keeps the hair out of your face for almost 95% of the day. Amazing, right? 

One single braid - A very protective yet cool enough to spend a day out near the pool hairstyle. You can always experiment in several ways when it comes to a single braid and whatever you think goes the best with your outfit and face can make you feel like a princess in a castle! We’re not kidding. 

A High ponytail - Another stunning way to glam up your little beach day out. Keep the hair out of your face and yet pull off a gorgeous Instagram shoot look ;) What more could you want right? 

If you’re wearing extensions or clip in extensions make sure you take them out before you go ahead and take a dive! 

Importance of heat protection

We all know the amount of damage the sun does to our skin but did you know that protecting your hair from the direct UV rays is equally important? It damages your hair to the extent that there can be moisture loss, fading if you’ve got coloured hair and major hair fall if exposed to the sun for a long time.

 Sunscreen for hair and hair protection on holiday is a thing, yes! You need to include a heat protection spray in your summer beauty routine. Another thing you can do to ensure your hair’s protected is to never leave home without putting your leave-in conditioner. It keeps the moisture locked in and hence does not allow the dust particles or air to dry it out.

A pool party in Dubai? Babe I've got my hair sorted!!

A vacation isn’t complete without a pool party and lets us be honest no one’s turning up looking simple. You’ve got to go up a notch and put a little glam factor to your look. Along with your stunning outfit, the hair’s got to steal the show as well! 

Half up half down hairdo is that one hairstyle that saves the day every time. No matter the texture, colour or type of hair, it looks glamorous and it's so versatile you can go from parties to dinner without touching the hairbrush! Celebrities and Influencers have been spotted on several occasions sorting this casual yet chic updo. 

Make this one summer of your dreams while enjoying some poolside madness at Zero Gravity Dubai, one of the most popular poolside resorts and bars in the world or dip yourself in some vitamin sea at the gorgeous beaches in Ibiza.

Going on a holiday with extensions

Extensions, in general, add a wow factor to your appearance and hence you need to take care of them while you're on holiday! Here are some tips that are going to be helpful when it comes to taking care of your extensions

If you're on a beach, pool or near any body of water avoid getting your hair wet if you're wearing extensions and if you want to take a swim, make sure you remove them first. 

Carry a hat with you when out in the sun. The powerful UV rays can cause discolouration. 

Aftercare products like hair brushes and hair oils suitable for your extensions, always keep them handy, you never know when the need can arise.
