Back To Basics For Summer

With spring fast approaching it’s time to bid farewell to the winter wardrobe and welcome in the new season in style – but you can forget the complicated, difficult to achieve hairstyles that saw us through the winter, because this spring it’s all about bringing it back to basics.

Kieron Fowles, creative director at Supercuts, commented: “If you want to strip back your look this year, what better way to do it with a gorgeous understated ponytail. This on-trend classic is set to be the hottest look at London Fashion Week in February, with a number of celebrities already rocking the look on the red carpet.

“The beauty of this style is its versatility – you can wear it as a cool daytime look or dress it up on the evening for a glam party finish, and as well as being bang on-trend it’s also really easy to recreate at home.

“Start by prepping wet hair with TIGI Bed Head After Party to add a gorgeous shine. Blow dry the hair and apply TIGI Bed Head Cult Creations Motor Mouth Volumiser with Gloss to add extra volume and lift.

“Once you have tied the hair back, run a ghd styler  through the ponytail to create a sleek straight finish. Finish off with Designline Freeze Spray Firm Hold Mist  to secure the look.

“A classic ponytail looks stunning when teamed with a simple centre parting. Partings were everywhere on the spring/summer catwalks last year and the look is set to continue in 2015. Wearing a parting keeps the hair away from the face, creating a natural symmetry which frames the face and draws attention to facial features.

“To perfect this super sleek look, use a brush to separate the hair into a middle parting and smooth through, then begin to brush the hair back away from the face before securing with elastic. Run Designline Sculpting Mud Flexible Styler (£8.99, through the hair for a glossier head-hugging wet-look finish.”

Supercuts believes that good looks cost less. With over 180 salons nationwide and no appointment necessary, guests can get great advice and style without the high-end price with haircuts starting from £14.95.  For more information, please visit
