TOPSHOP:3 Expert Tips On How To Maintain Perfect Hair All Summer Long

Sun exposure and humidity can make summer quite a challenging time for your hair and leave it feeling dry and frizzy. Want your hair to look healthy and be perfectly styled all summer long? We asked the experts at Blue Tit to give us three vital tips on how to achieve perfect summer hair with ease. Keep reading and book an appointment at Blue Tit in Topshop Oxford Circus to get even more help…‘Foliage is a new hair trend right now. Hair is highlighted and tips are painted freehand, then covered in foils. This gives maximum lift as the foils create more heat and a faster reaction than when the hair is just out in the open. The colouring process can take about 3-4 hours and you might need more than just one session to get the result you’re hoping for, depending on your natural hair colour and condition of your hair. Moisture and rebuilding treatments are great to keep it up too!’ – Hannah Button, Assistant Manager at Blue Tit Topshop‘Did you know you can create beach waves with your hair straighteners? Prep wet hair with Oway silk and glow serum and fully dry your hair. Then take roughly 3 cm sections of your hair, bend them in to an “S” shape and lightly tap your straighteners over the curved piece of hair. The heat will seal the bend in the hair, there’s no need to clamp the straighteners so it’s very gentle on the hair. Continue this technique around your head until all of your hair is waved, spritz with a little Oway sea salt spray and use your hands to scrunch and break up the waves for a more textured look.’ – Charlotte Brady, Blue Tit Dalston‘Don’t just protect your skin from the sun, your hair needs love too. UV rays break down the cuticle, leaving your strands dry, damaged and frizzy, so it’s very important to use heat protection sprays everyday, just as you do with your day face cream or sun cream. The best way to protect your hair from the summer heat is to use biodynamic products which include ingredients such as green anise, organic baobab oil, passion fruit oil, etc. Some suggestions are the sun protective elixir, after sun hair and body bath, and after-sun hair mask by Oway.’ – John Manolakis, assistant manager at Blue Tit East Village

TOPSHOP:3 Things We Learned At The Victoria & Albert Mary Quant Exhibition

Iconic fashion designer Mary Quant (the inventor of the mini skirt) was the heart and soul of the Swinging Sixties in London, so it was only a matter of time until the Victoria & Albert Museum dedicated an exhibition to her work. The highly-anticipated show finally opens today and gives new insight into the legendary British designer’s life and work, focussing on the years between 1955 and 1975. Earlier this week we headed to the V&A for a preview of the exhibition, and here’s what we learned…Back in the day, owning a dress from Bazaar – Mary Quant’s store on Chelsea’s King’s Road – was the pinnacle of fashion ambition. In order to curate the exhibition, the V&A called on the public last summer to track down rare Quant garments. The response was overwhelming: thousands of women came forward wanting to loan or donate their precious items for display. Featured in the show are 50 photographs of these women wearing Quant pieces, serving as a testament of how much the designer’s pieces meant to these women that held on to them for so many years.For most people, Quant’s name is synonymous with the mini skirt, but in the Sixties she was also a key player in creating a revolutionary new look for women at the time. The silhouettes of her hot pants or Peter Pan-collar pinafore dresses worn with bold and colourful tights still influence fashion to this day.“Life was a whizz! It was such fun and unexpectedly wonderful despite, or perhaps because of its intensity… we were so fortunate with our enormous luck and timing.” These are the words Mary Quant used to open her autobiography Quant by Quant written in 1966. Using her sketches, photos, videos and fashion pieces the exhibition doesn’t just tell the story of a woman that was ahead of her time, but also the story of a youthful, liberated and revolutionary decade that changed London forever.
