The holiday / festival season has begun in earnest and we have some crucial hints and tips for those wanting to stay ahead of the hair fashion game as well as looking after your hair in the sun.
As always, braids are top of the heap with last year’s milkmaid look taking on a whole new freshness for 2014. Accessorising your braids are a must with discreet feathers, beads, ribbons and flowers – think boho rather than bridal!
Tousled waves, created with a large heated barrel curler, can give you that instant ‘just from the beach’ look without having to cover yourself in salt and sand! Use the Cloud9 Waving Wand to achieve this look combined with Alterna Beach Bamboo Summer Ocean Waves texturising spray.
Top Knots are so last year! Instead go for grown-up bunches with a twist, add in extra bands to give them definition or twist in some beads for a playful edge..
Keep it Safe:
Heat Protection is a must – whether in the sun or not. We cannot stress enough the importance of using a good protection product for your hair to protect it from weather elements as well as hairdryers, irons and wands; heres our pick of some of the best…

However, the most important way to keep your hair healthy, especially during the holidays is to make sure that you have regular cuts!
The Vinery Hair Salon is delighted to announce that from July 2014 we will be offering Great Lengths Hair Extensions!
Great Lengths are world-leaders in Hair Extensions and can not only be added for length but for volume and thickness too as well as colour enhancement.
Great Lengths offer 50 different shades as well as free-flowing bespoke colour including a fantastic range of pastels. All the hair is 100% human hair and is ethically sourced from India. As Great Lengths explain, all hair is “voluntarily sacrificed and donated to temples by complete shaving of the head during Hindu rituals through a process known as tonsuring. Great Lengths are fully committed to ensuring that all hair is ethically and willingly sourced and that a fair price is paid. Payment for the hair is then used to support the local community by developing temples and medical services and supporting charitable causes.”
