Summer Beauty Survival Guide

The Anushka Salon pros share tips for the ultimate in summer hair survival.

For most of us, summer in general means getting out more; whether you’re hitting the pool to cool off or jetting to far away destinations while on summer break. But the summer season also ushers in often harsher elements that can negatively affect your hair, like higher UV indexes and increased chemical exposure. Our pro stylists share tips to keep your hair looking and feeling its best during the most active time of the year.

SPF For Your Hair

Consider a leave-in conditioner that includes SPF, or a thermal protectant like “Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil” heat and UV protective primer from Bumble and Bumble. Simply spray on pre-styling and keep your hair protected in the sunlight or before a day at the beach.

Reverse Washing

With so much heat and humidity in the air during the summer, you want to minimize any greasy or heavy residual product that may be left in your hair after showering, which makes it harder to style hair and may lead to a “limp” look. Our style pros suggest reverse washing: conditioning hair first thenshampooing out. Doing this will help get your hair the enrichment it needs while also removing any bulky product that might be left over. Try Kérastase’s “Resistance” reverse care treatment duo.

Hair Clarification

In the summer months, our hair experiences higher mineral and chlorine buildup as a result of being in pools more and because of how our water is treated. If you haven’t already done so, go out and purchase a water filtering showerhead, which will help filter out things like calcium sulfide, zinc, copper, chlorine, hydrogen sulfide, iron oxide, dirt, sediment and odors. Once you’ve done that, book a “Clarifying Treatment” at your salon for a custom-designed treatment to help remove any mineral buildup. At the Anushka Salon, this personalized prescription includes a deep cleansing and clarifying wash, a customized protein treatment and a finishing mask to help protect hair through the season.

Color Shield

Mineral buildup and sun exposure can also wreak havoc on your hair color. There are several formulas developed to help protect your color from brand leaders like Kérastase, Oribe and L’Oreal. Our own “Blonde Ninja”, Kristen, loves using Oribe’s “Bright Blonde” shampoo and conditioner because it helps protect hair while preventing it from getting “brassy”.

Keratin Smoothing

Keratin treatments have long been used to combat frizzy and unruly hair. These days, you can totally customize the level of “smoothness” you’re looking for, which makes them a great option for pretty much anyone who is looking to give their hair more protection against humidity. Talk to your stylist about how many weeks you want yours to last and what level of smoothness you’re looking for. Our pro, Andrea, suggests trying a 6-8 week-long treatment that will remove the frizz but keep your curl. Not only will the treatment help combat humidity, but the keratin complex will also fill in split ends, doubling up on the smoothness factor!

Dry Spray Shampoo

What did we ever do before the advent of dry shampoo? We admit – year-round – it’s one of our favorite products. Dry shampoo gives your hair extra life and volume between showers, but it’s also the best way to wick away moisture while you’re on the go. In the summer, mid-day heat can hit you hard, and having dry shampoo on hand can really prevent your hair from going limp. We love Oribe’s “Gold Lust Dry Shampoo” because it’s effective andhas that signature Oribe perfume that we live for!

Hot Hair! How To Look Better When It’s Hot Outside

There is no doubt that the Summer has arrived and is in full swing.  The draining heat and humidity is without a doubt reeking havoc on our hair and skin.  Humidity is a universal catalyst for dry, frizzy and unruly hair regardless of the type of locks your parents have passed on.  Living in West Palm Beach there is no way to avoid frizzy hair when the humidity sets in so understanding how to tame your mane when it’s humid, will have you strutting through the hottest days with hair happy confidence.

Celeste, a master stylist at Anushka Spa, Salon and Cosmedical Centre says ” Condition, condition, condition.  “Conditioner is a must when fighting humidity. I also recommend Oribe’s Impermeable Anti-Humidity Spray and Kerastase Elixir Ultime Beautifying Oil Creme.”

Whether your at home in Palm Beach or on the sands in the South of France, keeping your mane gorgeous is a must.

Spring Beauty Trends


This Spring’s hair and beauty trends are all about fresh, fun, relaxed looks.  At the Anushka Spa and Salon we are loving the iconic “It Girl Chop” with heavy bangs has been seen on all the major runways across the world. This textured chin-length cut plays up to the hair’s natural wave, making it look effortless. Perfect for the Palm Beach heat, the statement chop of the season, “The Bob”, is a classic do that allows for an incredible amount of versatility — rock it with texture, a wave, slicked back or bone straight. Also, the “Contouring Lob” rests just above the shoulders and is a center-parted angled cut that “ditches the layers” and shapes the cheekbones with its flattering frame.

For long hair lovers, try long extensions, cut straight across for the natural, hippie girl look. Give yourself the look of Palm Beach sun kissed skin with out risking sun damage. Bring attention to your eyes with exaggerated lashes through lash extensions and warm eye shadows. Our Anushka Lash-Guru, Ellie Malmin can give you envious lashes. As seen on Chanel’s runway, a “tropical eye” look with long lashes and a pink blush high on the cheekbone is a perfect everyday look. Don’t be afraid to play with your pallet this season!

Whatever your look just have fun with it and turn heads at this season’s galas with intricate braids, twisted up dos, and beach wave blowouts.  Hair wraps, bows, and ornate headbands are the perfect hair accessory to make your look absolutely flawless this Spring.

Beat The Heat Beauty

At Anushka, nestled in the heart of the Palm Beaches, it’s not just hot in the summer months: it’s sweltering. And let’s “face” it, beauty takes a back seat to soaring temperatures, unrelenting humidity and the sun’s beating rays. But, the Anushka experts, who have over 40 years in the beauty biz, have the answers to keeping your cool summer look alive and well. In fact, many of the tips we heard encouraged our beach babes to work with the heat instead of against it. Check out our top tips from our own experts.

“To preserve your beautiful color, before swimming in a chlorinated pool, rinse with cool water. Believe it or not, hair will not be able to absorb chlorine when it is first wet!” says Anushka’s Shawn Butner, Master Colorist, who is also an expert artist in Balayage Color Treatment. To tame your tresses, opt for a Keratin Blowout ($199 and up), a less intense “smoothing” option which helps for those who want a “little help” in the summer months to ward off the inevitable humidity.

The natural elements of Summer: Sun, wind and surf, dehydrate hair so visit your stylist for a restorative conditioning treatment (we recommend Kerastase, $38) or opt for a rich formula at your beauty supply store. To keep the “beach wave” look alive, try a texturizing spray, like Bumble & Bumble’s Surf Spray ($26), which is a favorite of our Master Stylist, Celete Salas, who’s styling techniques are so in demand, her clients to fly her halfway across the world for a cut and blowout!

For the face, we asked Makeup Artist, Aesthetician and Lashologist, Ellie Malmin, for her go-to summer beauty tips. “Make summer beauty a breeze by choosing the right makeup and treatments that last long into late summer nights and give you the ultimate freedom.”

 Start with eyelash and brow extensions, which are naturally waterproof and look like your very own. This ultra low maintenance solution will make you say “so long” to your eye pencil by brightening the eyes from sun up to sundown, and last up to 3 weeks! ($250 and up for a full set). Add a brow or lash tint for and easy, semi-permanent look you won’t have to touch up for weeks!

Opt for face makeup that is ultra sheer and youthful to compliment your easy breezy summer look. For all day coverage, try an airbrush makeup solution that will withstand the heat and water. Finally, finish with a sheer plumping lip gloss for a perfect pout.

For nutrition and body, we went right to the guru herself, Anushka, who has been reshaping women and men from the inside out since 1974. Her ultimate juice is a must to look swimsuit sexy this summer.

“As far as beauty goes, we often neglect the most foundational part, which is what goes IN first! Start your day off right by powering up your vitamin, mineral and antioxidant intake by swishing down a super smoothie! Anushka recommend her Beauty Detox Smoothie. Start with 2 cups of water and add: 4-5 cups of baby spinach (fresh), 4-5 cups of arugula or kale, 3 medium celery stalks, 2 squirts lemon juice, 2 rings fresh pineapple, 1 medium banana, and 10-16 drops of stevia.

“Beauty is a reflection of inner health and wellbeing. It is harmony and balance: a delicate relationship between spiritual, emotional and physical aspects to bring your best features forward and express a healthy appearance and attitude.”, says Anushka.
