Spring hair tips

  • Photo 1 of 0

A visit to the salon is the quickest way of updating your look. Michael Beel of Wellington’s Buoy Hairdressing gives us the lowdown on the latest trends.

Micheal says:

• It’s all about being groomed. Even a “wash and wear” style still needs a few minutes of care to make it look good.

• The messy top knot is over – unless you’re cleaning the house or at the gym. But if you’re addicted to your donut, it’s time to soften this look around the face to make it a bit more carefree.

• When it comes to colour, lightness and warmth are key elements for your hair. Balayage and ombre are still trending, but in a less dramatic way than seen previously – and with much more natural tones.

• The celebrity styles to be inspired by are Anne Hathaway’s longer crop and Nicole Richie’s “lob”with blunt bangs.
