by Anjelina Tongco

Summer has always been a season for fashion and beauty inspiration. This year, we are seeing a ton of gorgeous hairstyles and couldn’t help but try and recreate some of them at home ourselves! Here are our favorites that we’re definitely sporting all summer long! 

  1. Boho Braids: Braids are a classic hairstyle that never goes out of style. Whether it's a fishtail braid, a Dutch braid, or simple boho braids, they add a touch of whimsy and charm to any festival look. To recreate this style, start with dry and textured hair. Create multiple braids on different sections of your hair and pull them apart gently for a messy and undone look. Secure the ends with clear elastics and finish with a spritz of texturizing spray or a dash of your favorite styling gel for added hold.
  2. Space Buns with Glitter Roots: Space buns are a playful and trendy hairstyle that adds a fun and youthful vibe to your festival ensemble. To elevate this style, add some glitter roots for a touch of sparkle. Apply a glitter styling gel or hairspray on your parting or hairline, and then divide your hair into two sections. Create high buns on each side and secure with hair elastics or bobby pins. You'll be sure to turn heads with this eye-catching hairstyle. 
  3. Flower Power: Flowers are a quintessential element of the summer vibes and incorporating them into your hairstyle can create a dreamy and ethereal look. Choose fresh or faux flowers that match your outfit and weave them into your braids, curls, or updo. You can also create a floral crown or use flower hairpins to add a boho touch to your festival hairstyle. Leave your hair down and style it with natural-looking textures by using hair mousse and scrunching your hair up and down to get subtle waves. 
  4. Glitter Roots and Loose Waves: Another way to incorporate glitter into your summer hairstyle is to apply it to your roots and pair it with loose waves for a carefree and glamorous look. Start with clean, dry hair, and apply a hair styling gel or glitter gel to your roots, using your fingers or a brush. Then, use a curling wand or iron to create loose waves throughout your hair. Finish with a light hairspray to hold the waves in place and keep the glitter intact or finish with a water-based pomade for even more hold and shine. 
  5. Embellished Braids: Elevate your braids to the next level by adding embellishments such as beads, feathers, or ribbons. Choose accessories that match your outfit and style, and weave them into your braids for a unique and personalized look. You can also use hairpins or clips to attach the embellishments to your braids securely.
