The summer is finally here! So why not celebrate it by experimenting with a new, fun look? We went to Tommaso Incamicia for advice: he’s a hairstylist at the cult salon My Place Hair Studio in Milan and he recently joined the Davines family.


Here’s four looks that are perfect for the 2021 summer holidays. No matter if you like wearing your hair up or down, if you stay in the city or if you’re already on your way to the seaside, we’re certain that Tommaso’s suggestions will win you over!

#1 - Natural waves

  • Apply Volu Hair Mist to towel-dried hair, to add volume: focus on the scalp, but don’t forget the lengths. Comb the hair to distribute the product well.
  • Use the hairdryer at a moderate temperature, so you don’t stress the hair fibre. If your hair is fine, try to tip your head upside when drying it, for more volume. If you need to, use a brush to remove frizz from the ends.
  • Follow your hair’s natural parting and boost your waves by using the curling iron on a couple of sections.
  • The last touch: spray More Inside Dry Texturizer on still tight curls, for structure. Finish by running your fingers through your hair and spray Shimmering Mist for more shine.

#2 - Messy low bun

  • Dry your hair naturally, with the hairdryer at a moderate temperature.
  • Apply the Sea Salt Spray and work it in the hair with your hands, to add texture and create small locks.
  • Tie the hair back in a low, soft ponytail. Then form a bun and fix it with clips or hairpins, letting a few strands escape for a messy effect.
  • Fix the style with the More Inside Strong Hairspray.


PRO TIPS: care for your hair, by cleaning it and protecting it from UV rays

Before styling, remember that healthy hair is the foundation of a successful style. Here are the two essential steps for taking care of your hair this summer.

  1.  CLEANSING - Shampoo and conditioner are essential for caring for your hair throughout the year. In the summer, however, they become even more important: shampoo helps us cleanse the scalp and the hair fibre from sand, salt or sweat residues. Conditioner nourishes and hydrates: always take your favourite Davines duo on holiday with you.
  2. UV PROTECTION - To protect the hair from the sun’s rays, especially if you have blonde or bleached hair, we recommend that you apply a few spritzes of Heart of Glass Sheer Glaze or Su Hair Milk, with UV protection, to towel-dried hair. Remember to comb the product evenly through the hair.

#3 - High chignon with scarf

  • Dry the hair completely and apply a spritz of Dry Texturizer for volume. Then comb the hair backwards.
  • Make a ponytail - not very high but above the occipital bone - to form a straight line that joins the chin, the cheekbones and the head.
  • Liberate a few strands from the ponytail and let them fall forwards, as if they were meant to be there.
  • Pull the ponytail forwards, freeing it from the elastic to create a casual look and add volume and a natural appearance. Fix with the More Inside Strong Hairspray.
  • Form a round bun on the head and fix it at the top with hairpins.
  • Wind a scarf around the hair and make a side bow over the forehead. To prevent the fabric from bunching up around the face, tuck in any excess.

#4 - Wet look

  • After washing your hair, remove excess water by patting it dry with a towel. If your hair is porous and retains too much water, you can also briefly use the hairdryer. Remember, however, that the hair must stay wet for this look to succeed.
  • Mix the Texturizing Serum - to add volume to the hair - and the Medium Hold Gel in your hands. Distribute the mix of the two products well, not just to the roots but also on the lengths and ends. Don’t forget the back of your head!
  • Comb backwards with a wide tooth comb and then run your hands over your hair to get rid of the most obvious ridges.
  • Use large clips to secure the hair behind the head, fix with the More Inside Strong Hairspray and then dry with the diffuser. When the part of the head is dry, remove the clips.
