Even here in beautiful sunny Brisbane things can get a little chilly this time of year, so we don’t blame you for craving a little summer getaway! Our team of award-winning Wilston hairdressers, and the AHFA Australian Hairdresser of the Year 2019 Craig Smith, are here to provide you with a few tips to ensure you have your best hair holiday yet. Whether you are one of the lucky ones heading off for an exciting European sojourn, travelling to Bali for a spiritual retreat, or just heading further up the coast with friends, here are our top hair tips.
First up, get your hair under control! Be sure to call us at the best hair salon in Brisbane now if you need to try and squeeze in a spot. It’s a good reminder to make sure you are booked in nice and early before every holiday to ensure you get an appointment right before your trip, so you can make the absolute most of that fresh cut and colour. Remember – book holiday, book hair.
If you are lucky enough to have an appointment up your sleeve before you jetset off for some saltwater therapy, have fun with a subtle change and go a little shorter, or book in for the best balayage in Brisbane.
When on holidays you don’t want to spend valuable cocktail drinking time styling so it’s essential that you have at least one no fuss hairstyle that works for your hair and that you can easily create with minimal product and tools. Not sure what that is? Make sure to ask one of team to help you create one next time you pop in.
Two words will see you through this stressful time: Travel. Size. When you are dealing with packing, obviously travel size is the way to go with any luggage space always at a premium. Plus, you are also not going to go through too much product, so don’t be lugging around full-size bottles of your treasured products. Check out what your favourite brands have in the way of travel-sizes, or think of the environment and get a stash of reusable bottles and ration out what you need. Product left over post getaway? They are the perfect size to pop into your handbag. Win win.
Another must-have? An accessory (or 29!). There are going to be times when you just don’t have time to style your hair and that is when you need a little bit of help. A silk scarf or headband will hide a multitude of sins, a chic ribbon will dress up a simple ponytail and don’t you dare travel anywhere this summer without a broad brimmed hat to protect you from the sun!
Finally, make sure you also prep for any potential damage caused by flights, sun, saltwater and styling by ensuring you have masks and treatments at the ready. Leave in conditioner is great for the beach bag and single sachet masks are perfect for relaxing with in your downtime. Now, all you need to do is squeeze in some downtime.
Happy travels, love the team at Fruition!
