Since summer is on its way – the season to let your hair down and feel great – it’s time for some small changes to your hair that will make a major impact. Myriam Kone, Managing Director of Mimi et Mina, runs through this summer’s five hottest hair trends to help you to turn up the heat…

1. Highlights
Go for delicate highlights for a subtle, beautiful look and easy-to-maintain look.

2. Sun-kissed shades
Try a beautiful balayage for sunny days. Balayage is a French free-handed highlighting technique that will make you look perfectly sun-kissed. It’s like a subtle, blended ombre. Mimi et Mina uses REDKEN hair colours.
