Once upon a time there were long summer holidays in which everything was put on pause, starting with your look: hairdressers recommended that you trim your hair before the holidays and you only returned to the salon in autumn, with the highlights of the sea, to remedy the damage of ultraviolet rays and try new hair cuts and colors. Today is no longer the case, at least in Holywood, where summer is a perfect time for stars to experiment with new hairstyles: “I know it looks like I’m not doing anything but my hair is pretty busy!” She jokes on Instagram Halle Berrywho dyed the curly tuft of her pixie cut this summer first of purple and then of silverto embrace the natural gray on the occasion of his fifty-sixth birthday, celebrated on 14 August.
Overwhelmed by gossip about her husband’s betrayals and from the rumors of divorce, we don’t know if Emily Ratajkowski has already moved on and closed the chapter of her marriage, but surely we can say that something about her has already changed him: the look. The model ushered in the month of August with new ones extension who in a few days brought the lengths of her brown hair – which have already earned her the role of Kérastase’s brand ambassador – from breast to navel.
For one star who has put on extensions – a big trend of recent months – another has taken them off: Millie Bobby Brownthe Eleven of the TV series Stranger Thingsafter wearing her very long hair with curtain bangs for a few months, she opted for a chin bob, worn with the parting in the middle, the brown roots and the blonde lengths. A fresh hairstyle that is best worn in this hot summer, but that perhaps we will see on her for a little while longer: one of the favorite activities of the young actress, in fact, is to amaze with new looks and head shots that, almost always, become trend among Gen Z.
Meanwhile, in the fourth season of Stranger Things Millie Bobby Brown sees herself with the hairstyle that made her famous: the shaved buzzcut, however, the result of an ingenious wig because the actress had no intention of cutting her hair back to zero. In place of her, another young actress chose the most extreme haircut: Maisie Williamsthe Arya Stark de Game of thronesdebuted her new shaved head on Instagram in late July, joining the clan of young buzzcut-loving stars, including art daughters Willow Smith, Rumer Willis and Iris Law.
And if usually with the summer and the sea the hair lightens and many brunettes become blondes, this summer has marked a turnaround with several blonde celebrities who have chosen the dark brown. Between them, Lila Mossdaughter of Kate Moss, appeared transformed in Balmain’s fall campaign thanks to a jet black wig, while the color changes of Brooklyn Beckham’s new wife are real Nicola Peltzwho after years as a blonde decided to go back to her brown roots, and to the actress Sarah Paulsonwho ditched platinum and debuted her new brown pixie cut on the red carpet at the Hollywood Critics Association TV Awards.
In Italy, however, the most amazing changes of look this summer come from two of the most transformative artists we have: Arisa and Elodie. While the singer from Lucania has returned to platinum blonde keeping her hair very short (also for reasons of necessity: the stress trichotillomania leads her to pull her hair, which is why she often uses wigs), Elodie after several head strokes – created with complicity by Wella Professionals of which she is an ambassador – in several shots on Instagram she showed herself with her natural curls: soft, dark and fluffy.
