Summer, as an adult, is all about brunching with besties, staying out late, going to concerts, and being stylish throughout while basking in the summer sun. Our favorite thing about these activities is playing with new looks and re-living gorgeous festival styles from the season past.
Fuel Educator, Ashley Deubel, created this look that’s perfect for a multiple day music fest, playing in the sand, and swooning in the sea! It can even be restyled to give you a different look for second day hair.
On dry hair, prep your strands with Nourishing Oil. This will help tame flyaways and create more of a slip when styling.
Begin by parting hair in horseshoe shape, taking from just above the recession area and bringing it back to the crown of the head. After you clip that off, split the rest of the hair into two sections from the crown straight down to the nape.
In one of your large side sections, create a Dutch braid.
Repeat this process on the opposite side. After you’ve braided these sections, use Lock-In Hairspray to help with layers that fray towards the ends. Try using the back of your comb to mold them back into place, creating a finished feel.
Create your third Dutch braid in the final horseshoe section on the top of the head. Only take the braid to the end of the section – not the end of the hair.
Spray Lock-In Hair Spray through ends and gently back comb to create volume, texture and an anchor that will keep the bun in place.
Wrap hair to create the desired look. Once you achieve that, place a bobby pin where each finger is, to make sure it stays in place.
Finishing touches! Use Curl Defining Lotion to hold flyaways in place around the face and throughout areas of the braids.
BONUS: DAY 2 LOOK
Oh, and what is the most fun about festivals and summer trips is that they you want to be able to build upon your style for the next day. This style is perfect because it can be restyled the next day! Simply take the side braids out, add in some Texture Powder to refresh hair and absorb oil, so the style is re-energized, recycled, and ready for another day!
We think that this is absolutely perfect for any music festival or summer soirée! What are you secrets for creating swoon-worthy hair? We’d love to hear them in the comments below!
