You have your bikinis, sky-high wedges and cropped tops at the ready – it’s safe to say that your summer wardrobe will be just as on-point as ever. But the real thing that seals the summer deal is the hair, and more importantly, what you do with it. Whether you’ve got long hair, short hair, straight hair or curly hair, we guarantee there will be a catwalk-ready style to suit you. Let’s take a look at some of our absolute favourite summer styles to grace the runways of the world:
Braids are one of the most recent catwalk trends that are being seen around the world, both on and off the runway. No longer reserved for characters from Game of Thrones, braids are actually the single hottest hairstyle of the season.
Keep it simple by going for a halo braid (you can do this with your own hair or fake it with a sly hair extension) or really amp up the drama by going for a seductive, long fishtail. The longer the better! Incorporating braids into a French girl look or even boho look couldn’t be simpler – twist your braids into an updo and insert some dramatic hair accessories such as flowers for that ultimate boho chic, festival-ready style.
Braids Big Bold Curls
We adore curls, and thankfully, the world’s hottest designers seem to feel the same way. Sophisticated, yet soft natural looking curls were prominent in all the cities, and recreating the look couldn’t be simpler with the right tools and a little help from hair extensions. Chic, romantic curls are easy to create with a volumising mousse and a powerful curling wand. (Brush out the curls with a paddle brush for that ultimate natural, soft curly look.)
Bold ultra-feminine classic old Hollywood curls and waves can also be achieved by not brushing the curls out, and keeping the curls as defined and precise as possible. Finish with a semi-strong hairspray to secure the curls but still allow movement.
If you’re after something a little more low maintenance, then look no further than the Stella McCartney catwalk, as it was all about the beach waves. Towel dry your hair, grab some hair mousse and you’re good to go!‘

A god-send style for some ladies, and an absolute nightmare for others. However, achieving long, poker-straight catwalk hair is easier than you think. Blow-dry the hair as straight and flat as possible with a round brush, then go over the hair carefully with straighteners set at a very high-temperature. Add a light, smoothing serum to take care of any fly-aways, and finish with a shine spray for added gloss.
The best thing about these hairstyles is that they can be achieved by everybody – regardless of how short or fine your hair might be. If you need extra volume or length to create these on-trend styles, then head to Rapunzel for the most luxurious hair extensions that will instantly transform your style.
