Four easy summer hair upgrades

When summer comes there’s nothing more satisfying than an instant style refresh – and these impactful changes from celebrity stylist Ben Cooke are amazingly simple

Flip your parting

“When you style your parting the opposite way to usual, it creates more lift and volume for the illusion of thicker, younger looking hair,” says celebrity hair stylist Ben Cooke. If you’ve been wearing the same parting for years, Ben suggests training it to stay in place by blow-drying in the opposite direction with a round brush, with a touch of hair spray for added hold.

Tuck one side back

It’s the tiniest tweak, but simply tucking your hair behind one ear is the latest Hollywood trick, says Ben. “It looks elegant and casual, plus it opens up your face, which looks youthful,” he says. The key is to use a gel, mousse or firm hairspray to keep it in place, then dig out your flashiest earrings to show off your jawline and neck.
