Brisbane locals know how and where to get their fun for the long-anticipated weekends. They go out for dinner with family and friends, take long walks at New Farm Park, go to one of many local farmer's markets, or simply decide to have a glamourous and fun evening out. Each of these lovely scenarios calls not only for a carefully chosen outfit but also a matching hairstyle.
If you're looking for inspiration, it is enough to stroll down Queen Street Mall, South Bank or get lost in any suburbia. Laid-back woke-up-like-this wavy hair, a fresh half updo or some fun braids – here are the best of Brisbane's hairstyles:
When humidity reaches its peak levels, it becomes difficult to decide on any hairstyle since you know it will quickly turn into a sad mess. Curly-haired girls are well aware of this. To beat the weather and look stunning, try any variation of the top bun.
First, collect your hair into a high ponytail with a hair bungee. If you are not happy with your hair volume, it is ok to cheat a bit and use some padding, like a spongy hair donut. Place it at the base of the ponytail and then start twisting your hair around the donut, tucking the hair ends in. Put everything in place using bobby pins and, if needed, finish off with a bit of hairspray. This look will work perfectly for any surrounding - office, gym or a home party.
For a pinch of extra glamour, add one French braid starting from your top hairline or at the temples.
Colourful, highlighted hair is becoming more popular around here. You could either go for a delicate pastel rose or light blue, or really go at it with orange or purple. However, make sure that your hair is prepped with the right nourishment and treated with quality products after applying the hair dye.
One of our favourite hairstyles is the big side braid. Everyone at a dinner party or wedding will be looking at you, wondering whether you're real. Start by tossing your hair to one side. Begin making a Dutch braid from the top section adding more hair as you go, and try positioning it near your hairline.
When finished, stretch your braid to make it look even more thick. For this hairstyle, you need to have long, healthy hair. But try as we might, sometimes our hair just won't grow pass a certain point - it quickly loses its texture and becomes prone to breakage. You can read more about the importance of proper inside-out haircare with carefully chosen vitamins and minerals on this website. For an added effect, include some colourful hair extensions in your do.
We usually wouldn't recommend going out with your hair still wet, but sometimes, we just need those precious extra few minutes. By the time you apply a coconut oil mask, wash and rinse properly and apply conditioning treatment, all clocks in the house will be chiming furiously, urging you to leave now for that appointment.
Luckily there are a couple of hairstyles that are perfect for wet hair. Comb down your hair carefully (wet hair is more sensitive), and separate it into three sections. Take each hair strand and twist it tightly from the middle section down and loop it around into a classic bun. Repeat the same process with other two and pin each into its place. This cute look is perfect if you're going to the gym.
Brisbane girls love this hairstyle. Just take the upper half of your hair and tie it into a ponytail, a chignon bun or a knotted braid, and allow the other half to fall freely on your shoulders. If the dandruff devil and split ends are also sitting on your shoulders, rethink your current haircare choices. Hair is more dry and fragile when we eat poorly, and use hair styling tools and poor quality products excessively. That's why you should do your best to try and use only top-quality products. Here is to healthy luscious hair ready for all hairstyles and weekend plans.
