Holiday Hair Tips

Here at Millimetre, we love the sunshine – especially for the tanned skin, freckles and sunkissed hair! But if you’re not careful, all those UV rays can damage your hair meaning more to chop off when Autumn comes around. The sun’s rays can break down your hair shaft, whilst salt from the ocean can alter the hair cuticle causing dry, frizzy and weak hair.

This month we sat down with our specialists to discuss the top tips to prevent sun damage to the hair so you can enjoy your holiday without the frizz…


Oil up
Forget that tanning oil – try hair oil instead! We’re always prompted to put sun cream on our skin but we often forget that we also need to protect our hair from the sun’s rays.

A perfect solution for this is System Professional’s Solar Sun Oil. Run 2-3 pumps through the hair with your fingers, focussing on the ends (which dry out faster than the roots and are more susceptible to damage). 


Hats on
Another top tip is to cover your head and hair with a hat, bandana or turban.

This will not only protect your hair but also your scalp and can help you to avoid sunburn, peeling scalp and sunstroke. 

If funds are low check out your local charity shops or vintage stores for a bargain bonnet!


Rehydrate
After spending the day in the sunshine, make sure you give your thirsty hair a drink.

Why not try a thirst-quenching hair mask like the Pureology Hydrate Hydra Whip – a nutrient and moisture treatment that it will help your hair to fight dryness and frizziness.


Braid away
To avoid your hair to breaking or getting weaker when you are dipping your toes in the sea or pool, why not try tieing your hair in
a beautiful braid?

You can share your braid snaps and tag us @millimetre_salons in your pictures on Instagram to show all your creations.


Rinse thoroughly
After a swim in the sea or a dip in the pool, remember to rinse your hair as soon as possible.

Salt and chlorine can mess with the structure of your hair or even compromise your colour, so it is highly recommended to rinse your hair after a good swimming session.  

Just do it like @leverflack in her tropical shower!


Drink lots of water
Last but definitely not least, make sure you drink lots of water.

Staying hydrated is very important for your body and skin, but it can also keep your hair healthy. Make sure you’re getting your 2 litres of water per day to keep your hair looking healthy and stunning!

You can tell a lot about a person from their nails, and although we can all be guilty of forgetting to get a chipped nail fixed, there’s nothing quite like the feeling of a fresh mani!

To keep you on trend we’ve consulted our top beauty therapists at Millimetre to bring you the top looks for the summer…


Go nude
Nude nails are a big trend for this summer, but the key is to find the right nude tone for you. 

Have a look at the undertones of your skin, around your wrists. If your veins look blue, your skin tone is cold, which means your complexion is light or pale and pink shades will suit you better. If your veins are more green, your skin tone is warmer so darker shades of nude with red and brown undertones will suit you.

Another quick trick is to match your nude nail colour with the natural colour of your lips!


Metal, chrome & glitter
To match the makeup trends from the catwalk, jazz up your mitts with metal, chrome and glitter polish.

Metal, frosted or super shiny nails are still everywhere on Instagram and Pinterest, and for good reason. This futuristic look is both stunning and sophisticated.


Fruity Colours
This summer we are LOVING fruity colours – the bigger, richer and glossier the better! 

Opt for strawberry, peach, apricot, watermelon, orange or even lime, this summer. Or really push the boat out and wear a different colour on each nail for a fun day to night look.
