It has certainly started to warm up outside, and that means everyone’s hair needs some special care. Back in the colder months, we talked about winter hair care tips everyone should know but hair needs different care depending on the season. These are our awesome summer hair tips you need to be passing along to your clients.
Get Them To Start Fresh
Summer is a great time to embrace short hair, or at least shorter hair. Before the summer gets here, encourage your client to, at the very least, get a good all over trim. This will get their hair in the best shape before the heat of summer takes over. And while we’re on the subject…
Encourage Them To Be Casual
For the most part, hair doesn’t need to be “styled” every single day in the summer. It’s time to be easy and breezy. Casual loose ponytails, braids and even loose air-dried waves are perfect summer styles. They look great and don’t cause excess heat or styling damage. Suggest some of these casual hairstyles to your client or give them a wash-and-go shorter cut.
Review Their Daily Hair Care
We know, this is a repeat from the winter tips, but it’s SO important to re-evaluate and change hair products from season to season. Hair can change so much depending on the weather outside. Take a few minutes to ask your client what they’re currently using and suggest something new from the Davines line. Recommend minimizing summer humidity and taming unruly curls with the LOVE curl primer.
Remind your client how to shampoo and condition properly keeping new sustainable beauty products in mind. If they insist on using hot tools to style their hair, make sure they don’t leave the salon without a product such as Davines MELU hair shield.
Remind Them To Keep Using That Conditioner
We preached it to our clients in the wintertime and we’re going to continue throughout the summer. Hair can get dry and brittle in the summertime from sun and UV damage. Ocean salt from the beach doesn’t help either. A deep conditioner can be a lifesaver and leave-in conditioner can actually help protect hair against some of this damage.
Tell Them To Cover Up
You know that protecting hair against damaging heat and UV rays is super important. Get your clients to invest in a wide brim summer hat (using sustainable fashion materials, of course!) to cover as much of their hair and face as possible.
At the very least, direct them towards some UV protectant products for their hair such as Davines SU Milk.
As you know, hair needs special attention depending on the season. Your clients will be very impressed that you care enough to take the time to give them these seasonal tips. Not to mention the fact that since their hair will be in phenomenal shape, people will be asking them “Who does your hair?”
