Get your hair summer ready with The Engine Room in Hamilton

Get your hair summer ready with The Engine Room in Hamilton

THE HAIR experts from The Engine Room are here to help you stay fashionably cool in the hot summer sun.

This summer, pastel tones continue to be on point for those who have fair hair. Peach, soft pink, strawberry and apricot tones mixed with cream blonde accents were featured all over the summer 2014 runways. Platinum blonde is still going strong this season as well. If these shades are a little too adventurous, you can play it safe by embracing warmer tones like champagne, gold, beige or honey.

You know summer has arrived when whimsical waves are worn on a warm day. This season’s wavy hair has a new, velvety texture and glows as though it has a halo. For those wanting a little old Hollywood glamour, get those curling tongs ready to create curls that are full and bouncy. Even bed-head tousles tumble with a more elegant swish.

The ombre trend is very much still alive. Keep it up to date by having the colours in more subtle and natural shades. Add some warmer tones to the ends to ready your hair for summer. This colour looks great when worn carefree and wavy and is great for long days at the beach.

As you slip, slop, slap and wrap this summer, spare a thought for your hair. Just like your skin, you hair needs protection from the sun’s harsh rays and the other damaging elements of summer.

While there is much to love about these warmer months, the sun, sea and wind can all wreak havoc on your hair. To keep your locks fresh and healthy, see our great range of products at The Engine Room.

With its commitment to eco-friendly practices and in-trend cuts, colour and styling, The Engine Room is fast becoming the only salon in the Waikato region to get your get your hair done this summer.

Anzac Issue Out Now: Werewolf 47

Hi and welcome to the 47th edition of Werewolf, published on the eve of Anzac Day. Its become a cliché to describe Gallipolli as the crucible of this country’s identity, yet hold on... Isn’t our national identity supposed to be bi-cultural... and wouldn’t that suggest that the New Zealand Wars of the 19th century is a more important crucible of national identity than those fought on foreign soil?

Yet as Alison McCulloch eloquently reveals in this month’s cover story, New Zealand devotes a mere fraction of its attention span and funding resources to commemorating the New Zealand Wars compared to what it devotes to the two world wars, Vietnam and Afghanistan... More>>
