Hair inspiration pics for your post-lockdown haircut

The lockdown lob is #trending and these colourful hairstyles are pure summer inspiration


It’s been three months since most of us have been able to get a proper haircut.

And now that hair salons are officially reopening June 29, we can finally have those ends dusted, roots touched up or a complete colour metamorphosis.

It’s no surprise that lobs and bobs are trending (my long hair has been driving me crazy in quarantine) but so are all-natural curls and peachy pink hues.

Here are 20 hair inspo posts on Instagram to inspire your summer style.

Chic and textured lobs

I love how this cut hits “Just above the shoulder”. This length hits such a sweet spot. Many clients don’t know how to describe this because it’s not exactly a bob and it’s not a lob (in my opinion). Either way I’m digging this length for summer 🤩 . . . #balayagestylist #atlantabalayagehighlights #atlantabalayagestylist #atlantamagazine #atlantahaircuts #atlantabalayage #ouicutfrench #tayloryourhair #atlantahairstylists #atlantasalons #sunlightsbalayage #onlineducation #hairofinsta #haircolorideas #hairoftheweek #dimensionalhaircolor #balayagespecialist #atlantastylist #atlantahair #bestofbalayage #mastersofbalayage #balayagehighlights #livedinhair #hairmakeover #hairinspo

I love love love the @guytang_mydentity SuperPower Green Aurora💚💚💚💚 everyone should try the shade Green Aurora 💚💚💚I lifted her hair with #Big9 til I reached a level 9: 🖤Rootage formula is GreenAurora+Purple Raven to create a deeper muted green shadow rootage 💚midshsft: GreenAurora 💛ends: Lightning Bolt+Green Aurora to create a limey green. My client @shadyondeck is sooo fun and we added @olaplex to all the formulas. I treated her hair with #MyHero 4Step Collagen hair repair. Use #MyQuickBlow to blow dry her hair smooth and quick. I sprayed #MyDefender heat protection spray before curling her hair. And then style her hair with my favorite hairspray #MyPower spray to control her style while adding volume.

Yesterday I hosted my first IG Live, courtesy of @scheenadonia who's been hosting an amazing series of lives on her channel for the past few weeks, with female entrepreneurs sharing their journeys, tips and learnings and well your homeslice was her latest guest 💥you can still catch our 2+ hours chat (though we had a few tech glitches 🥴) about starting a business, raising money and all that's in between on my stories for a few hours - although it's in French, ah 😅🇲🇫 but eh, didn't they say we should practice a new language during this quarantine (and write a book, learn the cello, do headtsands, etc.) 🙃⁣ I can't tell you how proud of myself I am for doing it 😂 Scheena's inner fire is so empowering and contagious that I knew I'd be swept into it when she invited me 🤘🏾⁣ I knoooow many people do lives all the time without a sweat, but I'm on my own timeline right? So it's not catching up, but rather ticking a box on my list of "fears" to overcome 😁. ⁣ It's funny, I've rarely received negativity in the long years I've been on IG, but I guess I've witnessed it too often on accounts of people just being their unapologetic selves and well, I'm sensitive about my shit like Badu would say - my shit being the weird land contained in my big head 😜 ⁣ Why can't the Internets let us all be free eh?! ⁣ Anyway, there's also a recap of our chat on her feed (+recaps of her previous and v inspiring guests ✨) - hope you're having a nice Easter/Passover despite the lockdown, much love (and chocolate) to you all 🥰

I’ve spend years trying to imagine what it’s like to be a mommy. countless days, years dreaming about that one day that I get to feel the first kick or even the first time throwing up lol. Which by the way was a very happy and emotional moment for me. I ran to the room and told Federico with a big smile that I just threw up for the first time and did a little dance out of happiness! He hugged me and we both cried that night. Now I get the opportunity to experience this incredible journey in real life and I can honestly say it’s the most rewarding, loving, emotional experience I’ve ever been through. Not a single moment of this pregnancy goes by without feeling blessed and so grateful for this tiny angel growing inside of me. It’s worth every needle, every bruise, all the tears and countless hospital visits and treatments. I would do it in a heartbeat, all over again knowing what I know and feel what I’m feeling right now. I can’t wait to meet him in a few weeks🤍

By now, you’ve probably seen activist @TamikaDMallory’s chilling speech at a Minneapolis press conference last week, following the tragic murder of George Floyd at the hands of the police, where she demanded justice. “Arrest the cops. Charge the cops. Not just here in Minneapolis. Charge them in every city across America where our people are being murdered. That’s the bottom line." Mallory, the co-founder of @UntilFreedom, an intersectional social justice organization, and a former co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington in 2017, managed to "articulate the pain that too many people, specifically black people, are feeling." At the link in our bio, she shares more on what true allyship means and looks like, and how the responsibility falls on all of us to continuously fight for equal justice in this country.
