1. The Beaded Braids

Braids and beads are a match made in festival heaven. And there is a lot to choose from, such as classic three-strand braids, Dutch braids, or fishtail braids.

  • Adorn the braids easily with vibrant beads for an eye-catching effect. The beads can be threaded onto the braids at regular intervals or scattered randomly for a playful look.
  • To ensure that the beads stay securely in place, recommend using Four Reasons Professional Salt Mist, which provides structure and helps prevent slippage.

2. The Beaded Updo

For a more intricate and elegant festival hairstyle, consider creating a beaded updo. This style adds a touch of sophistication while still exuding free-spirited festival vibes.

  • Start by styling the hair into a bun or a twisted updo and then strategically place beads throughout the hairstyle.
  • The beads can be incorporated into braided accents, twisted sections, or simply attached to hairpins within the updo.
  • To keep the updo in place, use Four Reasons Strong Hairspray.

3. The Beaded Half-Up Half-Down

Not everyone wants all their hair out of their faces. For those who prefer a combination of loose and structured hair, the beaded half-up half-down style is a must. This style strikes the ideal balance between carefree and chic.

  • Begin by styling the hair into loose waves or curls using Four Reasons Professional Heat Shield.
  • Gather the top half of the hair and secure it with an elastic or hairpin, leaving the remaining length flowing freely. Incorporate beads into the gathered section, either by threading them onto a few strands or attaching them to small braids.
  • Top the style off with Four Reasons Original Super Strong Hairspray.

4. The Beaded Faux Hawk

For a bold and edgy festival look, the beaded faux hawk is a showstopper­ – or a showstarter? This style is perfect for those who want to stand out from the crowd and make a fearless statement.
