Before being in the sun for a prolonged period, be sure to protect those precious strands. If you wash your hair the morning of the theme park visit (or even the night before), treat your tresses to our Rise and Prime Hair Primer right when you step out of the shower. It's an eco-friendly product that not only hydrates and protects hair follicles from free radicals but also helps to lock in hairstyles for long days/nights.
Upside Down Dutch Braid Space Buns
Do you want to practice being upside down before hitting the coasters and other thrill rides? This hairstyle is for you. It's adorable when completed, but may involve some blood rushing to the head when weaving the braids upside down. Side note: it's totally what we'd picture 90's Gwen Stefani sporting at a trip to Six Flags. To follow a tutorial for this look, check out this YouTube video from hairstylist, Nina Starck. Set your braids and buns with bobby pins and some Freeze Please Finishing Spray.
Double Dutch Fishtail Braids
Fishtail braids are an excellent choice for theme park romps because they already give off an effortless look. Loosen the braids and take whatever attraction you're braving head-on. YouTuber Missy Sue has a how-to video for loose double Dutch fishtail braids here. You've probably heard that braids work better with dirty hair and it's true! Still, you can hide oil and add texture by spritzing roots to mid-length of hair with a dry shampoo like our Dirty to Flirty Dry Shampoo Aerosol.
High Bun with Braided Pieces
If you need something easy and quick (such as in-the-car-on-the-way-to-the-park quick), this one's for you. Brush hair into a high tight ponytail at the crown, divide the pony into two sections, braid them, then twist together and secure with bobby pins. You don't even need a mirror! There's an easy step-by-step in this video from eHowBeauty. To get pin-straight hair for this look, bust out a top-notch straightener like our Megastar Hair Straightener after prepping your mane with a heat protective spray like Watch Me Werk Thermal Heat Protectant.
Slightly Twisted Side Braid
Great for hair that's a few days out from washing, this simple side braid with a slight twist outward from the hair line is definitely #KnottsBerryFarm Insta pic appropriate. Cute Girls Hairstyles demos an easy "Subtle Twist Side Braid" here. All you need is a hair elastic and your fingers. No heat styling tools or brushing necessary.
Front Row Braid
If you create the front row braid, the rest of the hair is your oyster. You can do a ponytail, bun, or even French twist (we'd recommend a low bun for a theme park day). This hairstyle will keep the front section of hair off your face and still be able to achieve a cute look. Beauty vlogger Yana Irbe shows you steps to create the front row braid here. Mask any oil in that front line part with our Clean N' Mean Dry Shampoo Powder.
