7 hairstyle trends we’re loving for summer 2023

Summer means blooming flowers, sunshine, beach days and best of all – new hairstyles.

No matter what hairstyle you decide to try out this summer, you can level up your new do with a gorgeous set of extensions.

Platinum Hair Extensions is our first choice for when we want some extra length – so it’s great news that they’re joining us as the title sponsor of this year’s Platinum VIP Style Awards.

But before we get all dolled up for the big night, here’s 7 hairstyles we’re looking forward to trying this summer.

1) Mermaid waves

Whether you’re actually coming from the beach or just want to look like you are, some mermaid waves are the perfect way to embrace the summer.

Summer 2023 is all about embracing our hair’s natural texture. These beautiful waves give your hair volume and dimension while simultaneously making you look like a carefree beach goddess.

If you aren’t lucky enough to have wavy locks naturally don’t worry, there are plenty of ways to achieve this effortless look. You can add a texturising spray to your hair post-shower or grab yourself a textured flat iron.

You could also go for some extensions to give your hair that extra length and body. Platinum’s collection of clip-in hair extensions come in 18 gorgeous shades, and creates luscious, thick tresses in an instant.

2) 70s layers

If you have been watching Daisy Jones and the Six then you know exactly the kind of look we are talking about. 70s style is back in full force and we are living for it.

Spice up your hair for summer with some long, shaggy layers. The feathered look will open up a world of styling possibilities for the upcoming season and will also help you embrace a natural wave by taking some extra weight out of the length of your hair.

Elevate the retro style with some extra layers using a set of extensions – clip-ins or tapes if you want the look for longer. Extra points if you add in some short shaggy bangs.

3) Liquid hair

Shiny locks are always in fashion, but this hair trend takes shine to another level.

All over social media celebs like Jennifer Lopez, Hailey Bieber, and Kim Kardashian are jumping on the liquid hair trend. Although it’s called liquid hair, this trend doesn’t actually involve wet hair. Its super-sleek appearance makes it reflect the light like water does.

To achieve this look at home invest in a Keratin shine treatment, then blow dry your hair with anti-frizz heat protectant and finish off the look with some shine spray. You can check out Platinum’s own brand of haircare products here. 

4) Hollywood volume

Dolly Parton once said “the higher the hair the closer to god” and we are living those words in summer 2023.

Breakout your hair rollers, blow-dryer and hairspray because this season is all about voluminous curls.

Add some extensions from Platinum’s Prestige 2.0 collection to give yourself some serious extra volume. Made using the finest quality, 100% Italian human hair, these keratin bonds are designed for extreme durability yet are gentle on the hair – the perfect combination to have your bonds lasting a long time.

5) High bun

The obsession with Pamela Anderson continues!

This summer’s trending hairstyle takes inspiration from the 90s starlet’s signature “rockstars girlfriend” look, with undone up-dos being seen across runways and red carpets. The voluminous top knots ties into this season’s trend of effortless imperfection.

6) Bows

Whatever the occasion the power of a hair bow is unmatched. From an elegant black bow barrette to a statement red satin ribbon, there is a bow to suit ever situation.

A bow barrette can be elegant and chic but also can add a touch of playfulness and whimsy. A delicate ribbon is the perfect summer accessory to tie your whole look together (pun intended), whether you’re dressing up for a special occasion or just adding some flair to your everyday look.

7) Blunt bob

For a more low-key look that is still super chic, follow Hailey Bieber’s lead and chop your luscious locks into a dramatic chin length bob.

It’s all the rage these days.
