How jealous are we of all the fabulous holiday shots coming into our feeds on a daily basis, as the weather here at home is far from inspiring. Don’t you just love that pesky gulf stream that ruins every English Summer. But just because it’s more like November than August doesn’t stop the desire to have tousled Summer hair to match the bold and bright make up hues of SS15.
This season, hair is all about texture. Loose, deconstructed waves shout holidays, but the texture can be matte or shiny. To achieve this quickly you’ll need one of the 2 big hair product revolutions to hit the market recently. Warpaint rounds up our favourite mattifying salt and super shine sprays, who needs to get on a plane?

Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Spray works on any hair type and is excellent for adding body to fine hair. It can be used after Prep or as a Tonic Lotion, as well as during styling.
