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.

Before the run
Remember, weather and temperature can make your hair dry and frizzy. To avoid this you need to start taking action before training. And what better way to keep your hair hydrated than with our Pureology Hydrate range, which you can still find on sale in all our salons

Relax with the scent of lavender in Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and then revive with Pureology’s Hydrate Conditioner which is packed full of peppermint – the perfect combo to get you pumped for training!


During the run
People are often so careful with protecting their skin from the sun but most of the time forget all about their hair.Af

Yes, your hair can suffer damage from UV rays so you need to make sure you’re protecting your locks too, especially if you love to run in the sun.

System Professional Sun Oil is the perfect pal for your hair, apply 4-5 pumps before and after your run under the sun. You can use it on wet hair before blow-drying for softness and protection and you can also use it on dry hair to reduce flyaways and frizz.


After the run
Next time you’re soaking your aching muscles in the tub, why not treat your hair with a System Professional Keratin Restore Mask? This luxurious mask instantly reconstructs the hair, dramatically improving hair texture and leaving it glossy and soft to touch. This unique mask combines excellent transformative hair benefits with nourishing and regenerating scalp care, for beautification from root to tip!


Hydrate your skin!
The best way to keep a healthy and golden skin is to keep your skin smooth and hydrated. If you would like a plumping effect, you can try Decléor Hydra Floral Fluide Hydratant.

A double effect for a body intensely hydrated from the outside and plumped from the inside. Pop into your local salon to give it a try now!


If you’re running the marathon this year we’d like to wish you all luck from the entire Millimetre team!
