Summer hair ideas to beat the heat in style

Effortless beach waves for a sunkissed look

Embrace the spirit of the Italian Riviera with tousled, effortless beach waves that speak of days spent by the sea and evenings dining under the stars. This laid-back style is perfect for those who want to capture the essence of summer without spending hours on their hair.

 Product of choice: Favoloso Movement Spray. A beautiful texturising spray that adds flair and movement for a beachy waves look that will see through day to night.

Fun ponytails for hot summer days

Elevate your summer ensemble with a playful ponytail. From high and sleek to low and loose, ponytails are not only practical for those scorching days but also a canvas for creativity—wrap a silk scarf around for that extra flair, reminiscent of a Vespa ride through the Tuscan hills.

Product of choice: Favoloso Volumising Mousse. If big, bold and 60s inspired ponytails are your style of choice, blow-dry your hair with this light-hold, no-crunch-feeling mousse for fabulous volume.

Chic updos for relaxed evenings

As the sun sets and the heat softens, a chic updo offers the perfect transition into evening elegance. Sweep your hair into a soft bun or twist, evoking the grace and sophistication of an Italian soirée.

Product of choice: Favoloso Style & Shine Pomade. A simple way to keep frizz and flyaways at bay is to add a small amount of this popular pomade around your hairline to keep your updo style look smooth and fresh all evening long.

Protective styles for the sweltering season

The intense summer sun calls for styles that protect your locks from the elements. Braids and twists not only keep your hair tamed and out of your face but also protect your strands from the drying effects of sun exposure.

Product of choice: Prodigio Regenerating Oil. Before you braid your hair, apply a few drops of this hair repair oil to keep strands strong, frizz-free and protected from the elements. It’s also an effortless way to help seal split ends!

Another tip for keeping your hair soft and healthy is to apply the Prodigio Treatment Mask, onto damp (unwashed) hair and let it soak into your hair whilst you sunbathe or take in the sights. With its ability to be left on as you soak up the sun, the bond-building formula will help to repair damage and improve resilience and shine – all you have to do is wash thoroughly at the end of the day with your favourite Rossano Ferretti Parma shampoo.

Hair care for avid swimmers

Chlorine and saltwater can take a toll on your hair, but with the right care, your hair can remain as vibrant as the Mediterranean Sea. A pre-swim application of the Brillante Protect & Shine Oil shields your strands from sun damage and imparts a beautiful glossy shine.  Post-swim, a light mist from the Vivace Leave In Conditioner helps soften and hydrate your strands again, which can otherwise become dry and rough from the effects of chlorine or saltwater.

Transitioning from poolside to evening glam

Transitioning from a day by the water to an evening affair is an art. With a few strategic hair products and techniques, you can transform your holiday look with the ease.

Tip 1: If you plan to wash your hair, opt for a shampoo and mask designed for your specific hair needs. The Dolce Nourishing Collection is ideal for dry or damaged hair whilst the Grandioso Volumising Collection is the perfect routine for fine or flat hair. For maturing, grey or fragile hair we recommend the Vita Rejuvenating Collection and for those gifted with ultra-thick hair, the Intenso Smoothing Collection is the ideal routine to help smooth unruly hair, leaving thick tresses soft and easier to manage.

Tip 2: If you plan to save your hair wash moment for another day, we recommend using the Vivace Dry Shampoo Crème to refresh your roots and scalp; the unique ‘no-talc’ formula helps absorb excess oil and sweat leaving hair feeling peppermint-y fresh and volumized.

Why choose Rossano Ferretti Parma

In the heart of Italy, where art, culture, and beauty converge, lies the inspiration for Rossano Ferretti Parma’s hair care philosophy. Our products are not just about treating hair; they’re about embracing the Italian way of life—rich in art, architecture, and the natural landscape. Each product, from the Brillante Protect and Shine Oil to the Vivace Leave-In Conditioner, is a masterpiece, crafted with the precision of Renaissance artistry and the beauty of the Italian countryside.

As we navigate the summer months, remember, changing seasons means adapting your hair routine. With more frequent washing, your hair might become drier, and taking care of your scalp becomes paramount as you’ll sweat more in the heat. Rossano Ferretti Parma’s collections are designed to address these challenges, ensuring your hair not only survives but thrives, much like Italy’s enduring beauty through the ages.

So, cara mia, let’s embrace the summer with open arms and impeccable style, guided by the wisdom of Italian artistry and the innovative care of Rossano Ferretti Parma. Your hair is a canvas waiting to be adorned with the vibrant hues of summer. Together, let’s make this season a masterpiece of style, beauty, and laughter, under the sun-kissed skies of la dolce vita.
