It’s August Bank Hol, and here at Cloud Nine we don’t know about you, but we think it calls for some MAJOR hair inspo! Whether you’re heading out to party at Leeds or Reading Festival, Notting Hill Carnival or you’re planning on sipping Margaritas in your garden, it’s the last Bank Holiday before Christmas, so we think it deserves to be celebrated in style! That’s why we’ve looked to the experts, to provide you with some inspo to send the last Bank Holiday out in a flurry of fun!
Space buns will ALWAYS be a festival/carnival fave, and this one by Maria from @francescogroup_bridleroad certainly does not disappoint. It combines practically all the Summer’s hair trends – from pink and lavender hair, to braids, to space buns – so we think that this style is perfect to bid adios to Summer 2018! Use Cloud Nine’s Curling Wand, and then brush out, to create these beaut, fluffy curls that will add volume to your hair and leave it looking fab throughout the day and night.
This style by @hannahbrandhamhair takes space buns to the next level, but that’s exactly what we want this weekend – the sun’s out (hopefully), so buns out, right?! If you’re looking for a look that’s bound to make you stand out, this is deffo the one for you. Use Cloud Nine’s The Original Iron to ensure your hair is sleek and straight, before securing in these buns. Not only is it perhaps THE coolest style we’ve seen, but it keeps your hair up and out of trouble – just what you want for the weekend of partying that’s ahead!
This gorgeous braid with star accessories is out of this world. For you girls who are wanting something cute and chic, this look is perfect. @michaelgrayhair created the insane look by bubble braiding the hair and then securing in bunches that are gently curled at the bottom – which you can recreate this weekend using the Cloud Nine Curling Wand. We’re definitely a little starry-eyed over this look at Cloud Nine!
This look is PERFECT for shorter hair. Loads of volume and slightly waved, @caseyc_hair has created an incredible look that we absolutely ADORE. Use the Cloud Nine Airshot to add heaps of volume, and then use the Curling Wand for these loose curls/waves, to create the tousled look that is perfect for the long weekend.
All my friends will tell you that I’m a little obsessed with a low-knot – some may even say that I was born with one! So, if any of you love a low-knot like I do, this look by @smallgirlbigblog is surely the style of your dreams. The classic has been given its edge with the gorgeous braid trailing to the bun, completed by the tie-around detailing of the hair. For a festival or carnival, a sprinkling of glitter could take this look from a strong 11/10 to 100 – honestly, it’s the stuff of dreams!
