Turn Up The Heat This Summer With a New Hairstyle

It's that time of the year when our hair can start to feel heavy and we feel the urge to chop it all off to cool down! This year, there are a wide range of chic shorter hairstyles so you won't have to sacrifice style for comfort. 

The experts at Makeover Palace Hair Salon in Kidlington, Oxford, have created a guide to our favourite looks for summer 2022. Check them out below and then book in with our hairstyling specialists to see how we can make these styles work for you...

The Top Summer Hair Trends For 2022





Forest Hill


Chic French Pixie Cuts

Give your hairstyle a little "je ne sais quoi" this summer with a French inspired pixie cut. The French version of this classic cut has the traditional short cropped back and sides, but with the hair left longer on the top. The trick is to get a look that emulates the stylish nonchalance that French women are famous for, with tousled layers and waves lending themselves to this undone look.

Even better, you can put your styling tools away for this look, it is easy to style with your fingers and a little mousse.

The Heartthrob Bob

One of the biggest men's hair trends of the last few years has been adopted by fashion forward ladies this year. The 90s heartthrob bob is a choppy, layered bob featuring close-cropped layers at the nape of the neck with longer, cheekbone-sweeping pieces in the front.

Taking hair up and off the neck can help you to cool down, and the texture of this hairstyle means less styling time, you can wash, tousle and go!

Collarbone Grazing Lobs

If you don't want to take too much length off your hair this summer, consider a relaxed collarbone grazing lob, or long bob. This super flattering length is perfect for warmer summer days and can be styled in a number of ways. It is also long enough to be tied up if needed.

The "lob" hasn’t met a texture that it didn’t love, the length helps to maintain volume and thickness in fine, straight hair, and is long enough that curly hair won't puff out as it would with a traditional length bob. Speak to your Makeover Palace stylist about how the long bob can work with your hair. 

The Modern Princess Diana Hairstyle

During her life Princess Diana was a style icon, and her looks still have a huge impact on the fashion world today. The Modern Diana Bob is everywhere on social media this summer as people take inspiration from her look (see also: oversized jumpers with cycling shorts & chunky trainers and co-ordinating suits).

The Modern Diana Bob references the princess' famous layered style. This versatile, low maintenance look is easy to style, you can simply add products to enhance the volume for a fashionable messy look. You could also choose to blow dry it smooth, or wear it slicked back as Princess Diana sometimes did.
