Tired of your hair options? A blow out that leaves you so sticky and sweaty that you need another shower, Cousin It-style straight hair that requires hours slaving over a hot GHD, or au naturel, which in my case resembles Emma Watson’s in the very first Harry Potter movie?
It’s time to get a summer refresher and look no further for great hair than the Instagrams of Nine Zero One salon ladies Riawna Capri and Nikki Lee. They own and run their beauty shop off Melrose Place in L.A. which has gained an outrageous celebrity following since they set up in 2009. Their aim was to create a place where anyone could come and feel pampered and where all staff were treated equally, hence the naming of the salon, not after themselves, but after the number of the building. Seems like it worked because they now count the likes of Charlize Theron, Selena Gomez, Blake Lively, Demi Moore, Ellen Degeneres, Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence, Mila Kunis, Bradley Cooper, Colin Farrell, Theo James, Zac Efron and soooo many more as clients (and their Instas are often speckled with famous faces).
Their specialities include sunkissed highlights (this is LA after all), flawless extensions, messy waves and ah-mazing braids. Check out some of their gorgeous do’s below.
Why not go for the classic summer switch and colour yourself a few shades lighter?

Or you could go for a chop AND colour like Riawna’s bestie Julianna Hough (yep, that’s why she always has great hair, same for The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev).
Or you just need some styling ideas as to what to do with your beachy, summer hair.
