Autumn Braided Hairstyles TrendsBesides from the obligatory seasonal wardrobe makeover and the change in climate, the arrival of autumn also brings with it the sudden urge to revamp your hairstyle. While braids are the perfect go-to for keeping your hair out of your face in the summer months, the transition into Autumn can also wreak havoc on your hair. So, to keep your hair protected from the wind, rain and crisp air, why not experiment with the latest braid trends? From a twist on a classic hair accessory to a playful up-do, these braided hairstyles are set to dominate the beauty world this autumn. 

Double dutch braided ponytails

As a playful and stylish alternative to the ever-popular, classic French braid, why not try out a Dutch braid? While not new, the dutch braid trend has been popularised over the past few years by a line up of A-list celebrities and influencers, and now you can try it out too. 

Braided hairstyles dutch braid -Start by sectioning your hair into two sections and begin Dutch braiding each side of your hair.  

-To Dutch braid, take a small section of hair near the front of your head, then divide it into 3 equal sub sections. Cross the two outer strands under the middle strand. Incorporate more hair from the sides as you continue to braid until you reach the nape of your neck.  

-Secure the braid into a loose ponytail with a hair tie, and repeat this step with the other section of hair. 

-Take a section from the ponytail, wrap it around the hair band and secure it underneath with a hair grip. Polish the look off with a spritz of hairspray.

Vamp up your space buns 

When it comes to a easy, low-maintenance hairstyle, dry shampoo and space buns are a girls best friend. But, while they’re the saviours of last minute hairstyles after a late start in the morning, that doesn’t mean that they need to look messy and undone. With these simple tips and tricks, you can put your own spin on the classic space bun hairstyle! It’s time to stand out from the crowd. 

-Split your hair half up and half down and separate the top of your hair into two equal sections. 

-French braid each side of your hair and continue until you reach the crown of your head. Secure each section into a ponytail. 

-Begin to plait each ponytail into a normal braid, and secure it with a clear elastic. 

-Twist the plait and wrap it around the hair band to create a bun and pin it in place. Add texture and volume by pulling the braids wider or making the buns bigger or messier. Secure your braided masterpiece in place with a spritz of hairspray. 

Dress up your locks 

An easy way to add a pop of colour and texture to your classic braid is to incorporate a patterned head scarf throughout your braid. Hair scarves are incredibly versatile, as they can be braided throughout the hair or used as a hair tie to pop a classic braid. While bold, vibrant prints and floral head scarves are perfect for the summer, you can easily vamp up these braided hairstyles for autumn with deep burgundy shades and autumnal patterns.

Summer Festival Looks – Hair

588 660 Vanity Van

The final in our festival trend series. We’ve seen delicate floral makeup, dried flower manicures, glitter pretty much everywhere! Check out our previous posts here, and here.

So, to wrap things up, we are taking a look at three of the summer festival hair trends we are excited about for this coming season. Crimping (we promise its more wearable this time around!), Space Buns (because who doesn’t love channelling their inner Princess Leia!) and finally, Braids.

Festival Trends Hair Crimping

 

First up, crimping:

Before you head up into your loft to hunt for those beloved Babyliss crimpers which were assigned to retirement in the early 90s, this time around for the latest summer festival hair look we are holding back on the ‘very recently electrocuted’ look, and instead opting for a few select 1 inch sections crimped and then pulled back with the rest of the hair, into a loose low ponytail.

Space Buns:

Speaking of the nineties…
This time around, pair your space buns with braiding for a 2017 take on the trend. Centre part and French braid from the front or back of the head (or both if you so wish) and twist the remaining hair into loose buns atop your head. Finally, coat the braids in a healthy dose of chunky glitter and you’re all set. Check out this funky summer festival hair look we created at last years V festival.

Skinny, chunky, french, waterfall or fishtail…we aren’t fussy. Braids are set to be the hairstyle of the summer so start practising asap! This gorgeous little waterfall number we put together at V festival last year. Hair ornaments, flowers or glitter are amazing to jazz up traditional braids. Tips to create the best plaits – unwashed hair is the one – the dirtier the better especially for tight braids. Use a conditioning mist such as Batiste to tame fly aways and add TONNES of hair spray post style to hold it in.

I’m sure we weren’t alone when a shudder went down our spine at the news that the beauty trends of the 80s were making a resurgence.


Fortunately, however, the more-is-more era has become slightly more wearable for its 2017 comeback. Corkscrew perms and liberally-applied blush aside, this season we will be focusing on colourful eye makeup looks with brash brights pulled up toward the temple, and co-ordinating coloured mascara applied to the lashes.

Latest glitter trends and metallic lips
