These summer hair trends are set to soar in 2024! In this blog, Laura Elliott, Neäl & Wølf’s head stylist reveals five trends set to explode in popularity and how to achieve them whilst keeping a healthy head of hair. 

 1. Mermaid hair

This summer look is inspired by magical mythical creatures. It combines loose, flowing waves with vibrant hair colours like green, violet and blue. Loose curls can be created by embracing beach waves - read on to discover more about this hairstyle. The mermaid hair colour trend can be achieved by asking your colourist to dye your hair in your selected tones. See our Colour Shade Chart for inspiration. This style also creates the perfect photo opportunity in a season warm enough to swim in a mermaid’s natural habitat - the sea.

2. Low maintenance hair treatments

Hair treatments are more popular than ever. This summer, we expect to see the low-maintenance option of slicking hair back with hair masks, oils and leave-in conditioners. The sleek low bun style is perfect for warm days, working from home and in-between hair washes - this summer you’ll spot hair treatments being used to tame the fly-aways and pull locks into an easy up-do. Slicking your hair back with our HYDRATE Moisture Hair Mask is a great alternative to using harsh gels that prevent the hair from breathing, and can be kept in all day for a hydrating treatment.

3. The blunt bob

We always see a trend in summer with client requests for simpler haircuts. To achieve the sleek blunt bob, we would recommend using a shampoo and conditioner that suits your hair type. Before blow drying with a tool like our HERØ Ionic Hairdryer, apply a heat protectant spray or serum to shield your hair from heat damage such as our GUARD Heat Protection Spray. The bob is all about sleekness and precision so straightening your hair will help to achieve that polished look. For a more modern look, apply a texturizing spray like our TEXTURE Dry Texture and Finishing Spray to add volume and movement.

4. Compact solutions

With many of us planning holidays for this time of year, travel size shampoo and other hair products are a popular purchase. The lightweight nature and size of these bottles makes them incredibly convenient. They also meet the regulations imposed by airline travel on hand luggage, allowing them to be safely stored away with no problems. Here at Neäl & Wølf, we offer a wide selection of 50ml hair products, from blow dry mist to shampoo and conditioner. Browse our range today: Travel Size Minis

5. Heatless beach waves

Heatless beach waves are the ultimate summer hairstyle, no matter what hair length or texture. To achieve this look, ensure that hair is 80% dry and use our VELVET Nourishing Hair Oil overnight. Section the hair, and twist at the front of the hair, as though you are creating a French braid. Secure with a bobble and leave overnight. To finish, unravel each twist and brush through with a wide tooth comb. Apply our GLOW Super Shine Spray to leave hair glossy and healthy-looking.
