Three New Hairstyles to Try For Summer

Bumble and Bumble's head of education Mark Coates reveals his three favourite hairstyles for the season

Most Popular

Effortless undone hair has reigned over the catwalks for the past few seasons with little variation in style. Fortunately, for spring/summer 2016, that's all set to change. An array of ponytails, twists and braids were seen across the runways in New York, London, Paris and Milan. 

Bazaar caught up with Mark Coates, Bumble and Bumble's head of education and the man who creates the hair looks backstage, to find out how we should be styling our locks this season.

The undercut

Most Popular

The Nineties were a source of inspiration for hair and make-up across all four cities, however there was a fresh twist on the decade with a luxe finish, rather than a grungy vibe. At Alexander Lewis, Coates created a simple yet chic look by wrapping a side section of the hair under the opposite side. "Make sure you blow dry with a flat brush to get a sensational super-shine finish," says Coates.

Perfect pony

The ponytail is a classic hairstyle, which evolves each season. For spring/summer 2016, there is more texture and body. "This style works really well on day-old hair," says Coates. Scoop your tresses up into a ponytail using a bristle brush and mist a dry texturising spray into the lengths for added volume.  

The prairie twist

Braids and twists are always popular around the summer and this year is no exception. The prairie twist is a chic, undone version of the trend. Part your hair down the middle and fasten it into two sections. Twist each side from roots to ends, before wrapping around the back of your head and pinning into shape.
