                 HAIR STYLES · BIG HAIR IS BACK

Lay down those straightening irons - big hair is back!
If you really want to turn heads this summer think Jessica Simpson or Angelina Jolie flowing locks.
Whispers from the hottest hair professionals is that poker-straight hair is passe, with summer hair big and beautiful, full of cascading curls, with lots of luxurious volume and movement.
As seen at some of the most influential designer shows for summer, including Gaultier, Burberry and Marni, mega-volume is back, from slightly dishevelled to massively mussed-up.
The most important thing a girl can do this summer is master the art of blow-drying.
Girls have been dependant on straightening irons for too long, but now it's time to learn how to blow-dry your own hair at home, and save the irons for touch-ups.
However some professionals say straightening irons could also be used to create drop-dead gorgeous curls. We're seeing lots of 1970's influences with soft layers and disheveled base lines.
Stay clear of asymmetric do's and embrace this new bohemian style.
Warm colors are also hot this summer - New season colors include auburn, rose-tinted, rich burgundy, honey golds, wheatened yellows and raging copper.

How To Get The Look

Whatever your hair type, you can encourage greater volume by using cleansing and conditioning products specifically designed to increase the dimension of each individual hair - particularly useful if you're in the fine-to-normal category.
Create extra volume by blow-drying your hair with your head held upside down. Blast at the roots of your hair and also sweep a vent brush through each section.
Invest in some body building style products such as volume root lift spray and spray gel. These products are designed to revitalise fine, limp, flyaway hair.
