Three holiday hairstyles

By Kasia Hastings, 17 July 2016

We’ve helped you work out your summer wardrobe, served up some solid plans and even provided you with packing tips so, next up, we're sorting your holiday hair. Here are three ways to go, however follicularly endowed you are.

The suedehead

The longer baby brother of the classic buzz cut, this crop’s ideal for hotter holiday destinations as it’ll keep you cool without allowing your scalp to get scorched. It’s a low-maintenance cut that requires minimal styling and may actually make thinning hair look thicker. Ask your barber for a 3/4-inch long crop scissor cut, to leave your hairline natural and to lightly chip away at the edge.

Mid-length mastery 

If you’re a man with mid-length hair then you need a haircut that will work with and without product. This puffy style comes with a slight undercut that keeps the action up top and your hair out of your face. Depending on how neat you want to keep things, ask your barber for longer lengths through the top with graduated short back and sides for a smarter cut, or slightly shorter sides like our friend here. If you’re not blessed with a natural curl, matte products will add some texture.

Long and loose

Got long hair? That requires a bit more looking after. When your mane is being made to face the elements, aftercare like a deep conditioner or hair mask are grooming game changers, but equally import is some good groundwork. A proper pre-holiday chop is absolutely essential and investing in an oil-based spray will help you add heat-beating moisture. If you’re packing curls, wet your hair a bit and plait it before bed to banish frizz but, straight or curly, always let your hair dry naturally.
