THE CELEB: Georgia May Jagger
THE LOOK: Changing up her iconic golden locks for the trending ‘sand art’ look.
THE VERDICT: It’s super-trendy but this look is best reserved for summer music festival season as it fails to make the transition from the beer tent to office, to Sunday lunch with the in-laws.
DIY IT: Consult a colourist to achieve this unique bayalage technique, which requires sectioning out hair triangularly to ensure that different pastel hues blends seamlessly into each other.


THE CELEB: Poppy Nstongwana
THE LOOK: After rocking ‘the lob’ (long bob), Poppy went for the big chop!
THE VERDICT: Blessed with the ‘right’ hair, this could be a wash-and-go look, however, those not so lucky will find this high-maintenance.
DIY IT: A cut to the sides and back while leaving long frontal bangs will help you achieve this sophisticated look. A rich colour and choppy ends keep this look youthful.


THE CELEB: Vanessa Hudgens
THE LOOK: Pocahontas-inspired length.
THE VERDICT: This ultra feminine mermaid isn’t for everyone, particularly if your face is long and thin, and your hair fine and flyaway.
DIY IT: Growing your hair might be a more affordable option, but extensions are a relatively effortless way to achieve full, Rapunzelesque locks. Fusion, tape-in or weave extensions are suitable for most hair types.


THE CELEB: Zoe Kravitz
THE LOOK: From waist-length braids, to a textured cropped bob and a bronze colour wash.
THE VERDICT: This is an effortless, heat- and humidity-resistant summer chop.
DIY IT: A choppy, textured cut plus a spritz of saltwater spray is all that’s required to achieve this low-maintenance look.


THE CELEB: Zendaya
THE LOOK: From long, flowing locks to a choppy, new pixie cut.
THE VERDICT: A more manageable and summer-friendly option.
DIY IT: This bold look requires a great hairstylist and an easy to manage, wispy cut. While those with straight hair will find this look more accessible, a professional straightening or relaxing treatment will do the trick!
