Great Styles for July 4th


By Sumetra Reed

Can you believe 4th of July is right around the corner? You're probably making plans to attend a family picnic, BBQ, pool party or family gathering.  No celebration is complete without planning the perfect outfit and hair style.  Here are a few looks you may want to consider.




This is a very simple style that can be done in just minutes.  My favorite products for a WnG are Camile Rose Curl Maker, Blueberry Bliss by Curls and Cantu Curling Custard. With these products, a little goes a long way and I don't experience residue or product build up. You can freshen up your WnG with just a little water and oil. 




The afro puff is another simple style perfect for a fun in the sun.  You can grab a nice edge control and an elastic band to achieve this look.  I get the best puff on old twist outs or old braid outs.  My favorite edge controls are by Design Essentials, Creme of Nature and Sunny Isle JBCO.

High buns can dress up a look or be a perfect look for jeans and a tee.  It's a great way to keep your cool since your hair is off the neck as well as protect your ends.  If your hair isn't long enough, you can add marley hair to get a nice textured high bun. 




When my hair was longer, I loved throwing styles together.  Some of my favorite looks were unplanned and last minute.  The creativity and possibilities are endless.  Just twist your hair and grab a few bobby pins to secure your hair in place.  Just play with your hair until you get the desired look.  This is another great protective style that keeps you cooler during these hot summer months.




Mini twists are a great protective style and easy to maintain.  You can wear them down, in a bun or pull them up.  You can twist your own hair or you can add hair to get more length.  To freshen up the look and get more time out of the style, you can simply retwist around the front and edges.  To keep hair moisturized, take a spray bottle, add water and your favorite leave in conditioner then spritz as needed.  Use a light weight oil to seal and add shine if needed.

How are you planning to rock you tresses for 4th of July?

Love y'all!
