With Love Island back on our screens its no better time to catch up with celebrity hairdresser, (think Moira and Mollie Mae) Jay Birmingham, who has put together his predictions for this summer’s hottest hair styles…
“The styles I think will be popular in the villa this year are:-
The high ponytail – Think super sleek, high ponytail that’s snatched and sassy. This is the perfect style for the summer to get your hair off your face but it still looks put together.
The half up half down – This is a style that we know and love. Pairing this with a gorgeous wave gives you that ‘influencer’ style that we so often see on Instagram. It’s perfect to take you from day to night and I think we will see the islanders rocking this look.
The bob – Lots of our favourite celebs are going for the chop at the moment. I think some of the female contestants will be showing off shorter, bob length hair this year but we are still seeing lots of long hair and amazing extensions.
Mermaid waves -Think beachy, textured waves with lots of volume. This is a style that I love and it is a go-to when on holiday in the sunshine. The villa is a great place for the girls to experiment with their style and try things they don’t get the chance to wear at home.
Braids: Lucie has been experimenting with braids from Dutch to super long knotted braids, there’s so much opportunity with braids this summer. It’s the perfect style in the heat to reduce flyway’s and tame frizz too.”
