Summer Hair Tips by Joe Gibara

Hair know-how with Joe Gibara

Joe Gibara, the face of Braun Independent Steam has come to the rescue with these hot tips for sexy summer hair.?? ??

What are the key trends for the summer party season???

During the summer months, people tend to like their hair to be shorter and lighter. Summer 2003/04 will focus on choppy styles. The dry textured look will replace the waxy look. Undercuts are a great way of achieving this look as they reduce hair bulk, helping to maintain the textured finish.????

What styling products should we be asking Santa for???

When purchasing styling products it is important to make sure the products won?t dry or damage your hair. Braun has a range of steam styling products, called Braun Independent Steam. Featuring a steam curler and straightener and heated power brush, these products style hair at an ideal temperature ensuring hair isn?t damaged. The steam function provides extra moisture and helps control unruly hair.????

Do we need to change our cleansing and styling products to suit the season?????

No matter what season it is or how busy you are, try and find time in your daily routine to groom and style your hair. I recommend a visit to your hairdresser at least every six weeks for a professional cut and treatment.????During the summer months, treat your hair as you would your skin. Rinse your hair after swimming in the ocean and chlorinated pools, condition hair to replenish moisture lost in the heat, where a hat where possible to protect hair from the sun and use styling products that have a sunscreen component in them.????

What are your predictions for hair in 2004???

The fringe has been very popular over the past year. That trend is fading, so as fringes are grown out, they?ll be swept to the side of the face giving that edgy feel, a la Heidi Klum, and side parts will accentuate this stylish look.????

Waves and curls will also dominate 2004 and colours will move into warmer hues such as light brown and soft reds.????

Which celebrity do you think has the best hair and why???

Kylie has great hair, it is always styled beautifully. She adapts her hair to changing styles, but isn?t a slave to trends. Great colour, great length and she maintains it really well.??

Cool Chic hair

We can’t all have our own personal stylist, but if its cool and chic you can guarantee that the celebs will be doing it first. Take a look at what they are doing and follow their lead. Watch the awards ceremonies and start experimenting with different styles. It’ll take time, but with patience and practice you’ll be amazed at how good you can get at creating your own cool styles. You can find all the products that you need in the Andrew Collinge range of hair care and styling products.Humidity is public enemy number one to anyone with frizz-prone hair.

moisturising shampoo & conditioner

Dry, porous hair sucks in moisture, so the only way to combat humidity is to keep hair moisturised. Use a moisturising shampoo and moisturising conditioner such as Andrew Collinge moisturising shampoo and moisturising conditioner.For a ‘just stepped off the catwalk’ look – consider braids and cornrows (not only do they look cool – think Kylie – they also keep hair out of your face). Before braiding apply Andrew Collinge supple hold styling cream to prevent hair from slipping.

To finish lightly apply Andrew Collinge shape up controlling wax to the bottom half of the hair for texture and polish. One of the hottest styles for the coming season is an updated version of the ‘starlet’ style from the 1940s, featuring a deep side parting and a softly waved front that brings the hair over the forehead whilst the rest hangs loose at the back.

This is a very simple style and can be achieved by all with a little practice. Start by applying Andrew Collinge no kinks straightener to the back of the hair, and Andrew Collinge supple hold styling cream to the front.

Separate the front of the hair from the side parting into 3 sections and curl around 3 large velcro rollers across the top of the forehead. Use a large round brush for blow-drying the rest of the hair straight, then when the hair at the front is dry remove the curlers and gently brush out the hair to create a glamorous wave.
