Give Hair a Break: Tips for Holiday Hair Care

If summer fun beckons with the promise of sunshine-filled days, lounging by the pool or trips to the beach, why not make sure your hair enjoys a holiday of its own? And looks fabulous to boot!

Caring for hair is important all year round and the summer months have their very own set of challenges.  If you’re lucky enough to be enjoying sunnier climes, intense heat, combined with chlorine and salt water, can dry hair out. This can make hair brittle, prone to breakage and frustrating to style.

If this sounds familiar then check out our essential travel tips for holiday hair care.

Pin it Up

First things first, you’re taking a break so keep holiday hair care simple.  Pins, clips and bands are handy for plaiting, ponies, up-dos and topknots to add some fun to your look. These looks can work from poolside glamour to sunset chic. Plus they save you from the tyranny of the daily blow-dry. For most updos, you simply need to rough dry prior to styling or you can style on dry hair.

Velcro Rollers

Pack three or four velcro rollers. These are brilliant for creating an evening look. You can create more weight on the sides or crown. Wash and dry your hair. Apply the rollers when hair is still warm from the hairdryer and spritz the hair with Styling Mist for Natural Hold and Volume or Styling Mist for Natural Hold and a Glossy Finish. Leave the rollers in for 15 minutes or so to allow them to cool or if you prefer, blast with cold-hair from the hairdryer.


A Mason Pearson brush is great for holiday hair care. You can turn the volume up by back-brushing hair, especially when wearing it up. Use a vent brush for shorter styles to create body and build in volume by pushing the roots up with the brush.

Dress it Up

Scarves are a great way of dressing long or short hair. They are a great way of taking a break from styling and work day-time or evening.

Take the Heat Off

If you’ve got longer hair, plait while it’s still damp. Once dry, let it down for loose waves or soft curls. Summer is all about movement and natural flow so why not make the most of it?

Treat it Well

If you’re having a day by the pool, smother hair in our Restore and Shine Hair Masque and slick back for a sleek look. It’s the perfect antidote, putting moisture back into the hair and helping to create a stylish daytime style while preparing your hair, so it’s ready for styling in the evening.
