    This Jean Seberg-esque crop looks modern in bright red tones.

    Stylist's Tip: "Neal & Wolf’s ‘Guard’ heat protection was blow dried into the damp hair. With it being a shorter style, ‘Shape’ pliable paste was applied to style the hair giving it lots of texture and overall definition. Lastly, ‘Glow’ super shine spray was applied to add the finishing smoothness and glow."

    Red asymmetric crop

    Red asymmetric crop

    This asymmetric cut fuses both androgyny and femininity brilliantly, and the use of colour is bang on trend.

    Tip: “I was particularly inspired by Gareth Pugh, YSL and Lanvin's move towards Parisian chic, mixing leather and structured shapes with soft layering and outlines. To style, simply use plenty of wax to shape the style into place before spritzing with hairspray.”

    Scrunched blonde curls

    Blonde wavy hair looks fresh in a short, scrunched style for the summer.

    Tip: Woven sunlights have been created for a natural blonde colour result. The lights are placed under the parting and graduate out to the lengths, perfect for easy maintenance colour and defining the movement and waves in the hair. Scrunch dry with a diffuser and use Osis Magic Gloss to define and add shine to the curls.

    Graphic, graduated bob

    Graphic, graduated bob

    Inspired by the clean lines and strong shapes at the Prada show, the layers of this precise hairstyle are choppy and sharply defined.

    Tip: The secret to success with this style is to ensure that you have a good, sharp, geometric cut. Apply a small amount of MoroccanOil Treatment Oil to hair, taking time to massage it through the mid-lengths and ends. Section the hair and blowdry using a flat brush to help create a high smooth finish with high shine. Create a sleek finished result with some straightening irons and mist Aveda Brilliant Spray On Shine over the finished style.
