THERE'S more to holiday hair than bad braids and sandy scalps. From the haircut that will give you the perfect beach-ready tousle -- no matter how far you are from a sun lounger -- to the postsummer saviour that promises to banish split ends for good, here are some of the best low-maintenance tress-tamers to book before you fly.

Shake up your cut Wouldn't it be nice if there was a formula for creating that effortless just-rolled-out-of-bed tousle that doesn't require an hour spent carefully positioning each strand of hair? Well, the clever clogs at Charles Worthington may have cracked it with what they have dubbed the "shaken" hair technique. Created using the new "Cross-Shake" cutting method, which involves slicing into hair in cross-sections around the head to create a heavily textured finish, the cut is designed to encourage movement and fullness for perfect lived-in hair. And the best part? It works on all hair types and lengths, from thick to thin and long to short, and it's ideal for curly girls who want to exaggerate their natural waves.

Which is why Hari's new T-Bar couldn't be better timed. Offering a menu of quick-fix root touch-up services for in-between colour appointments, the T-Bar (which is also the name given to the section of hair down the middle of your parting and around your face) will refresh your colour fast. Our favourite service on offer is the Deep Rooted, which flips the ombre trend on its head with darker roots and subtle summery lights on the lengths for a modern finish. (From PS70, available at all Hari's salons; harissalon.com.) Just add salt A just-stepped-offthe-beach barnet doesn't have to involve leaving the capital. Thanks to the Cheeky Parlour's new Ready Salted service, holidayhair can be yours without an EASYJET check-in desk in sight. Offering a menu of three mussedup textures, choose between By the Pool for flirty bouncy waves, On the Beach for an easy, breezy finish, or In the Surf for grittier, fresh-off-the-surfboard chic. …
