Ah Summer. It’s all about bathing in the sun, dancing in fields, and jetting off somewhere sweltering to work on your tan. The one downside though to the long hot days and crazy nights is that without proper protection they can wreak havoc on your hair. We talk to TONI&GUY Leicester to ensure your hair stays shining along with the sun this summer.


Keeping your hair looking flawless after 24-hour-partying and kipping in a tent is no mean feat. Fret not, festival-goers, there are ways to make sure your hair won’t give up before the final act hits the stage. “Try a spritz of temporary colour – the Label M Colour Sprays (£9.95) are easy to apply and just wash out – try Pink on blonde hair or Purple on brunettes. ” Also, if you’re not quite brave enough to linger in festival showers then Label M’s Dry Shampoo (£11.50, also available in Brunette) is perfect for quick rejuvenation or Resurrection Dust (£12.25, also available in Brunette) adds instant volume.

Travel in Style

You wouldn’t step into the Spanish sun without protecting your skin from UV rays, and your hair deserves the same TLC. Keep styles simple with loose up dos that keep you cool in the heat and don’t require much teasing, preening, or straightening. They recommend a combination of damage prevention and post-holiday treatment; “The combination of UV rays, salty sea water, and chlorine can damage your hair and lighten your locks, especially in colour treated hair, making protection key to fabulous pool-side style.” “Keep your hair covered with a wide brimmed hat or a boho scarf, and treat your hair to a repair and deep condition. All our Label M products have a UV filter to prevent damage, and what’s more they all come in travel sizes so you can slip them in your handbag or suitcase.”


Everyone loves to go lighter for summer but Jon recommends being careful with your colour. “Blonde is one that can go wrong if applied incorrectly. The new Blondor colour range from Wella is fab, gentle with professional results and available in a wide range of blondes from natural tones to the on-trend platinums and silvers. The colours are also available to buy meaning you can be sure of your colour even if you top it up at home.”
