How-To: Mini Festival Buns

Get your buns ready—it’s officially festival season! Our favorite trend this year? Mini space buns with loose, Beachywaves™. Get creative, and add some craft store cording and charms, and you’re ready for Bonnaroo, Lolla and everything in between! Here’s our guide for how to get your new, go-to summer style.

1. Create two small ponytails near the front of the crown area, and secure with clear elastics. 

2. Using a Half Up, roll each ponytail into a bun, wrapping the hair around the Half Up to conceal.

 

3. Wrap colored suede cording (you can find it at a craft store, like Michael’s) over the top of each bun, and incorporate the cord into a basic three-strand braid underneath each bun.

 

4. Braid about two-thirds of the way down, then use the cord to secure the braid.

5. Attach charms (you can find these unicorn and bear pegasus charms at a craft store) to the bottom of each bun.

 

6. Add some waves using the Beachwaver S1, then gently comb through the waves with your fingers. 

 7. Take your new buns for a spin, dancing queen! 💃

 


 

Summer Festival Hair

Summer festivals are the most anticipated and chic events of the summer. Our favorite hair trend and festival essential that we can’t get enough of, is the flower headband. We recreated the classic look a few different ways, using the Beachwaver and Wrap Up. 

Here’s what you’ll need:

Beachwaver
Wrap Up or Half Up
Darby Clip (to section your hair)
A Flower Headband (You can buy one but we love this DIY tutorial on how to make one by Lauren Conrad. Check it out here)

Flowers and Beachy Waves

Step 1) Beachwave all of your hair. Remember to let your locks completely cool before running your fingers through them to create loose waves and texture
Step 2) Place the flower crown directly on top of your head and voila! Coachella ready hair in minutes. 

Mix it up! Add a half up top knot using HALF UP and accessorize with your flower headband. See the how to video here

 Flowers and Buns

Step 1) Create a side part
Step 2) Beachwave all of your hair for perfect texture
Step 3) Secure hair into a really low side ponytail
Step 4) Using the WRAP UP®, create a low messy side bun
Step 5) Pull out front tendrils
Step 6) Add your flower crown and you’re done!

The only thing left is to add some festival worthy music! Listen below to this year’s amazing Coachella performers! Happy Summer!
