Local Edinburgh salon Hair by JFK  have been hand picked for the ‘Salon Team’ title in this year’s Salon Business Awards!

Owner of JFK Karen Brown took time out to give us some top tips to keep your hair in pristine condition throughout the Summer months.

If your hair is already damaged, the sun can cause more damage to split ends, so it’s vital that you get a haircut before spending a lot of time in the sun. If you colour your hair, the sun can cause colour to fade or change, it’s important to use colour saving shampoo and conditioner, like Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Color Guard Shampoo and Conditioner, which will keep colour looking its best.


I’d also recommend using a hair mask a couple of times a week, which will not only seal in colour and keep it from fading, but will give the hair the nourishment it needs, as the sun can make our hair go dry. If you are heading on holiday or to a summer festival, I’d recommend taking a hair oil, like Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Oil Nutritive Weightless Oil or serum, like Schwarzkopf Gliss™ Oil Nutritive Split-End Serum with you. These are great for frizz and banishing any dry or frizzy ends or If you’re at a festival for a few days, this is also great for creating that slicked back hair look, which can disguise greasy hair!

When it comes to summer hairstyles, embrace your poolside beach waves. A casual hairstyle that screams warm temperatures and bare legs, beach waves are here to stay! The tousled and textured style can have a high-glam look, parting waves with a deep side part and complementing them with a bright summer scarlet lipstick. Teamed with minimal makeup and a sun-kissed glow this look is perfect for long bobs and mid-length for beachside hair — day or night.

If you’re in the sun a lot, try to avoid using too many heated styling tools, which can cause further heat damage to the hair but if you have to, make sure you always use a heat protection spray, like Schwarzkopf’s Got2B Guardian Angel Flat Iron Balm.However, there are so many hairstyles out there that do not require any heated styling tools and look great for the summer months such as plaits, which are great for avoiding frizz and knots, are super on trend and look even trendier the messier they get! This style is also perfect for any summer festivals as whether it’s a normal, dutch or French braid, it will only need redone once throughout the weekend and you can use a dry shampoo, like Schwarzkopf’s Got2B Rockin’ It Encore Fresh Dry Shampoo, to absorb any excess oil and refresh the hair, so you can party the night away!
