With festival season starting, a little bit of fresh inspiration is exactly what is needed for the beginning of spring. Below we have 4 easy to maintain festive trend ideas to get you festival ready!

Mini Afro’s: Who doesn’t adore a cute little afro? SS/16 is the perfect time to enhance the naturalista in you and you sure won’t be alone in the trend! Mini fro’s with flowers around the crown are making a huge comeback this festive season, with you’re favourite bloggers and celebs setting the bar high. We’re in love!

Braids: Braids are a great protective style but they also add an edgy look during the festival season. Long braids/twists including the slicked back two french plaits, which have been hot in the media for the last couple of months, paired with a cute dress or denim shorts is a trend that will never run off its course. Adding braid accessories to your hair will also add to your festival ensemble.

Waves: Loose undone waves are the perfect hairdo’s for the festive season. Easy to maintain with minimal effort, all that is needed to rock the look is a great quality salt spray which can be applied directly to the hair to create the flawless wavy texture. Backcombing the hair is also a plus, as it will give the hair extra volume from the roots and enhance lift.

Messy Updo’s: Why is it that when you want to create a flawless bun, it ends up messy (in a good way) but then when you purposely want to recreate the same look everything turns left! Don’t worry you’re not alone, we have bun envy too! Look to Queen B for inspo, she can do no wrong!
