The multi-talented and creative hair stylists of Swordfern in Cape Town, gives us the low-down on the hair trends for Summer 2014!

We like… Braids, curls, low ponytails, long straight cuts, the modern quiff, the slick back, the messy short crop, short waves, retro curls, the easy TOPKNOT THE STRAIGHT PONYTAIL, the sky high pompadour, THE MAN BUN , wispy pixie, EDGY BOBS and the undercut. Like the image above shows, we love simple and feminine. MESSY PLAITS with kiss fishtail. Nothing quite shows off texture like these two. The Mohawk can now be found reining the care-free up-styles.

Ladies1Take these key styles, mix the elements and create your own individual style.

LIVE IN YOUR HAIR! Make the style YOUR OWN. Be it sleek WITH High gloss or messy and textured. Add a Side Part and BOOM, you are ready for summer!

Your hair must tell your personal STORY. We call it the #HAIR ROMANCE.


More important than ever is the condition of your hair. We focus on healthy hair that shines with luster from Natural Organic hair products. The world is going green, and so is hair. The days of putting diesel on your hair is over! Organic Colour Systems is in South Africa and treating the hair for optimum health BEFORE OR/AND AFTER ANY colour service is mandatory.

With colour either completely natural or fun and playful. Every colour of the rainbow and every shade in-between are on the charts. We are seeing different tonal value in hair adding light, shadow and textures ranging from sorbet pastels with cool blondes, honey-blondes with vintage strawberry blondes and metallic sheens.


We also like… Pastels, Bold-Vibrant Reds, Honey-tone Dimensions, Icy SPLASHLIGHTS, Orange depths, Bright Chestnut hues, Natural brown Balayage, soft rich Platinum-blue honeys and RAVEN grey-rose coffees.

For the true colour junkies – Multi tonal blurs of mint and light turquoise in true Aqua for a summer splash.

For the more natural look this summer – ask for a combination of BALAYAGE and Ombre. Raven-dark flowing into rich Copper hues is big and it wears well with a slick parting.

Don’t forget to accessorize!
