The weather may feel like summer has already come and gone, but today is officially the first day of summer. We have a couple of months ahead where you can feel the sun on your face and the wind in your hair. The solstice, at least in the northern hemisphere, is when the earth is most tilted toward the sun. You can find a good explanation on the World Atlas site.
The difference between solstice and equinox
This summer equinox is also the longest day of the year. The further north you go, the longer the day. You don’t have to go to the northern end of Scandinavia to experience the elongated days. One memorable occasion was a drive through northern England late at night, able to pick out the trees and church towers against the navy blue sky.
Long summer days mean more time to linger outdoors after work. Whether it’s going for a walk, enjoying dinner on a patio, or taking in some of the finer things London has to offer, you’ll probably spend more time getting some natural Vitamin D. Given the current good weather, that also means more time to appreciate the sun glinting off your hair.
Speaking of hair, if there’s a time for refreshing that summer hair style, it’s when you have more opportunity to show it off and enjoy it. This isn’t the time for prissy hair. It’s a blow-dry and go time, a good-cut-no-fuss time of year. You want a style that can survive summer activities and still look good when you meet friends later for a drink.
