My favorite time of the year has to be the South by Southwest festival. While it may be hectic for local Austinites to battle extra traffic, parking issues, lots of crowds downtown, and long waits at restaurants, you cannot deny that SXSW makes for spectacular people watching.

I’ve noticed a few hair trends (not to mention some very interesting fashion choices) worth noting.

Beachy Waves with Braids - To get the look with a long layered haircut, braid just an inch of your hair along your hairline down to one ear on one side only. Scrunch remaining hair with Phomollient and Be Curly Style Prep, then let air dry. The ultimate wake up and go hairstyle.

Messy Ponytail - Pile all of your hair on top of your head, let some wispy pieces fall out. Or do a low side pony, and tease the ends to add texture. Spray with Air Control or Control Force for extra hold.

Hats! Cowboy hats and Fedoras are the most popular. Helps keep the sun off of your face and protects your haircolor from harmful UV rays.

Bright Haircolor - Fashion reds, pinks, purples, yellows, blues… Either an all over color or just a fun pop of brightness, the trend seems to be the brighter the better. NEON hair, anyone?
