Let’s face it. Indian summers are a nightmare for hair. If you’re lucky and the sun didn’t manage to completely burn off your mane, it definitely did leave it awfully dry and a little reminiscent of a haystack. And if that wasn’t enough trauma, the incoming monsoon will ensure that your dry, summer damaged hair is hit instantly with a blast of humidity making them frizz up like Monica’s in Hawaii, or in my case, leaving them greasy and limp.
Add to the Indian hair plight Instgrammers like Sarah Angius, who create to-die-for-hairstyles with their perfectly healthy and happy hair in under 30-seconds, and you’ve successfully orchestrated a nervous breakdown.
Luckily, for all our seasonal hair issues and lack of hairstyling expertise, there is a saviour. Quirk’s benefit partner (in crime), Jean-Claude Biguine, has launched their Spring/Summer’16 collection – Pearls of Tahiti – and it looks like just the thing we need to help us with our hair miseries.
Cut them off!
What’s the most pragmatic response to the bullish weather? Chop that mane off! (Though that need not come at a compromise with style).
Go for a tapered bob with feathery ends that feel as light as air itself with Breva, or try something a bit braver with the short, Tomboy look that still holds true to being soft and feminine with textured cuts and ragged edges.
Spike it with colour!
JCB goes big with colour this season, and why not? Play up your hair with pearl grey highlight
s, Perle de Tahiti, named after the collection. Or, if you wish to go all out, try a complete blonde look with Cold Gold, that is richer than blonde and subtler than red or a softer Light Pink Gold with a pastel hue, enhanced with subtler rose gold nuances.
Tie them up!
Just want to dress up your hair for the weekend? Try the quaint Bobo Chic, a Bohemian hairdo with plaited hair, set off with a scattering of pearl beads and romantic, wavy strands. Cinecetta, inspired by 60’s Italian film stars is quite the dramatic updo, perfect for a Saturday sundowner.
Cut, colour, layer, texturize or stylize – there’s lot to try from the latest JCB collection that’s guaranteed to take your summer worries and monsoon blues away. Their stylists went all the way to Paris to train especially for the SS’16 collection and even worked to tweak it to our Indian skin tones and faces. Still need more reasons to try it out?
