Summer Beauty Tips

Get Ready For Summer – Beauty Tips from Rituals Hair Spa in Gainsborough

Get-Set-for-Summer, Scotter hair & beauty salon

Summer has arrived and there’s nothing better than stepping out with a fresh face and glowing skin, so check out our top tips to get you ready for the warmer weather.

1. Wear A High Factor Sun Screen

It’s vitally important to always protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays so make sure you invest in a high factor sun screen.

2. Exfoliate For Brighter, Smoother Skin

Make sure you exfoliate regularly to brighten up your skin. This helps to remove dirt and dead cells that become trapped in pores and make your skin look dull. Use a gentle exfoliator for your face and a slightly more robust scrub on your body.

3. Remove Unwanted Hair

We are able to safely and efficiently remove hair from the eyebrows, upper lip, chin, underarm, bikini, legs, arms and back using either waxing or threading.

Frizz-Free Summer Hair

Frizz-Busting Hair Solutions at Rituals Hair Spa in Scotter

The arrival of the summer sun always lifts the spirits but there is not denying that those long lazy, hazy afternoons can also leave our hair in a frizzy mess.

When it comes to frizz-fighting hairstyles, check out our top five ways to wear your hair this summer…

A Simple But Stylish Upstyle

Stylish upstyles, Scotter hair & beauty salon, Rituals Hair SpaChannel your inner Brigitte Bardot this season with an effortless, finger-raked updo.

To get the look, wrap random sections around a big curling iron. Be sure to alternate directions with your curls for a modern look.  Do some gentle teasing at the crown for height, then grab a chunk of hair on each side. Pull the pieces back, and gently push upward before you pin it hair into place.

Top tip:  Your upstyle will remain in place more firmly if you wash it the day before rather than on the day itself.

The Plush Ponytail

frizz free hair ideas at Scotter hair & beauty salon, Rituals Hair SpaAdd a spritz of texturising spray to your roots, blow dry, then tease the crown slightly once dried – it’s all about keeping volume in the crown when creating that classic, voluminous ponytail. Smooth the top using either a bristle brush or comb to create a rounder shape.

A quick spritz of hairspray will keep the style in place once you’re happy with the final look.   

Top tip:  Blow dry your hair upside down to give your hair that extra va-va-voom!


The Messy Top Knot

hair upstyles, Scotter hair & beauty salon, Rituals Hair SpaCool, undone and easy – the top knot moves into the limelight again this summer.  To create the look, toss your hair back and tie it up really high – quite loose and some distance from the scalp.

Top tip: Work in volumising powder and then boost up the top hair with your fingers. No need to be too exact while tying, by the way – it’s all about the messy look.  

Best of all? The top-knot visually lengthens the neck which makes you appear taller and slimmer!


Boxer Braids

Braided hairstyles at Scotter hair & beauty salon, Rituals Hair SpaWe’ve seen this ultra-cool look on the Kardashian clan – and it’s the perfect style to battle summer frizz. Braid your locks as tight as you dare, then finish with hairspray to keep the style in place.

Top tip:  Plaits and braids are one of the hottest looks around for summer 2016 so if you don’t fancy this look, why not try a chunky single braid, either worn high on your crown, as a low side plait or cascading down your back!



The Embellished Up-Do

embellished occasion hair for weddings and proms, Scotter hair & beauty salon, Rituals Hair SpaWhy not add a dash of romance to your hair style this summer, and embellish with some chic accessories?

Top tip: The addition of some strategically placed ornate clips, flowers or even a tiara can cover a multitude of sins. It’s a spontaneous, imperfect way of adding some glamour to your hair.

If you’re lucky enough to be heading off on a beach holiday, you might be looking for some quick and easy hairstyles!

On the beach, the idea is to look laid-back and casual but that can be tricky to achieve after a day of sun, sand, and sea salt in your hair.  Fortunately, help is at hand from the team at Rituals Hair Spa in Scotter who have come up with some quick & easy beach hairstyles to keep you looking chic.

Plaited Summer Hairstyles

There’s also the added bonus that when you take them out, you’ll have beach waves to die for, without spending hours with a curling iron and drying out your locks.

Wear your plait in whatever style you fancy.  It can be high on the crown, a low side-plait, two braids or even a halo braid if you’re feeling adventurous!

Top Knot Hairstyles for Summer

Summer hairstyles, Rituals Hair Salon in Scotter, LincolnshireTop knots are a perfect way to get your hair out of your face and they’re SO easy to do on your own.

Give your hair a good brush, pull it up into a ponytail at the crown and secure it with a band.  Then twist your hair around until it turns into a little knot.  Secure with a second band.  

This look is awesome on women and men with long hair, so lads don’t need to feel left out.

If the mood takes you, why not go for two top knots for a change?

Summer Hairstyles – High & Low Ponytails

Low ponytails are the ultimate in low-maintenance, so they’re great for beach trips.  

For a cool night-time look that’s quick and easy, wear your ponytail low and to one side.  Maybe add a few waves to it using your styling wand.
