Belfast is buzzing with music fes­ti­vals and at the minute Bel­sonic is on a roll with so many top artists in the city. For music lovers, sum­mer fes­ti­val time is usu­ally a great ex­cuse to be more ad­ven­tur­ous with their hair and this year it is all about bold and beau­ti­ful colours.

I call it fruit juice hair as ev­ery colour un­der the rain­bow goes.

Di­rec­tional colours on blonde and brunette hair are re­ally trend­ing at the mo­ment.

Pinks, reds, blues, lilacs and greens — all sorts of crazy colours — are pop­u­lar. The beauty of th­ese new colours is that they wash out af­ter 12 weeks.

It is not just young peo­ple go­ing to music fes­ti­vals but peo­ple of all ages are giv­ing it a go. It is like the re­turn of the pur­ple rinse brigade but, in­stead of pur­ple, peo­ple are go­ing for pinks, blues and even green.

And if you can’t make up your mind which of the many beau­ti­ful shades to choose from, there is also a pop­u­lar multi colour blend which gives you an ar­ray of colours in one go.

Rose gold, which has been very pop­u­lar, is be­ing re­placed by rose brown and it is a huge trend with brunettes at the mo­ment.

This is a mix­ture of pink and rose gold which, when put on top of brown hair, gives a lovely warm irides­cent rose gold look.

It is fun for hair­dressers and lovely to see the end re­sults. I had one cus­tomer this week with grey hair who left the salon rose pink and an­other who went from pink to pur­ple. We find peo­ple tend to be a bit more ad­ven­tur­ous in the sum­mer months and usu­ally feel a bit freer to ex­per­i­ment. Also pop­u­lar with fes­ti­val-go­ers are glitter ex­ten­sions and feather ex­ten­sions. We’ve had a lot of peo­ple get­ting sin­gle strand glitter ex­ten­sions which are tied into the root of the hair. It is a very quick and easy way to up­date your look. Bright colours aside, this sea­son is all about go­ing with the flow and al­low­ing hair to look free and nat­u­ral. All you need when you de­cide on your style is a spritz of sea salt spray to pro­tect it and you are ready to rock and roll.
