Summer festivals are upon us and as a woman who loves rocking her natural hair, I always am left with the question “how will I wear my hair for this event?” Taking all things into consideration – weather, environment, activity (think HUGE PARTY) and, if you’re like me, what I’ll be wearing to the event, I’ve come up with three foolproof styles that any natural could rock:
Flowers and Floral Crowns

Depending on which style of summer festival you’ll be attending, flower and/or floral crowns could definitely bring your whole look together. From TWA to hair that stops at your butt, flowers and floral crowns have proven themselves to be a summer festival hit! They are fun and are so easy to make (if you’re into DIY) or better yet, relatively inexpensive to purchase. If you missed this “Flower Power” video, check it out now!
No matter how much hair you have (or don’t have), hats are one of my favorite go-to summer festival styles. I love the shade the brim of the hat gives off. But what do I love even more than that? The space a big hat gives me without having to fight for a little personal space in a crowd full of people!
Scarves and Head Wraps

Not into having all of your hair out? Don’t mind it out but want to rock some pattern and color with your look? Try tying it up with a scarf or head wrap. Not only are you protecting your strands from the elements, you are also accentuating your beautiful face (sans the hair everywhere).
And sometimes you may not want to be bothered by having your loose hair out – here is where protective styling comes into play. Protective styling keeps your hands out of your hair, and depending on how you style it, becomes a piece of art for all those who get to see it. Wear it down, in an up-do or a high bun and if you’re really feeling fancy, wear it with one of the afore mentioned styles!
