Summer Festival Styles: Summer 2017 Trends

Osheaga is among the most popular festivals in Canada where fashion also takes a center stage! To complement the trendy styles of participants, we suggest two festival hairstyles in perfect harmony with this musical venue.

The crown headband

  1. Part your hair at the top of your head.
  2. Tie a thin scarf around your head, placing it over your forehead. Once knotted, start from the front right side.
  3. Take a lock of hair and wrap it over and around the headband. Then insert the lock between the headband and the head. Let go of the lock.
  4. Take a second lock, merge it with the first lock (repeat step 3).
  5. Repeat all steps until you reach the center back of the head.
  6. Repeat the same steps on the left side.
  7. Start braiding the hair at the back, using the scarf ends as one of the locks of the braid.
  8. Tie the braid with an elastic band and secure it with pins to create the illusion of a low bun.

  1. Start with the upper part of the hair: create two parts from the corners of the forehead to the crown.
  2. Move the top section, then tie the bottom section to keep it out of reach.
  3. Free the top to make the braids.
  4. Make three French braids in the top center head and solidify with hair spray.
  5. Once the braids reach the back of the crown and all the hair is inserted, tie them into a messy bun.
  6. Once the bun is tied, add some texture to the remaining loose hair using a Jacques Despars curling iron.
