    Summer is in full swing, and that means garden party season is here! Whether you’re attending an intimate backyard BBQ or a grand outdoor soirée, your hairstyle can make all the difference. From braided beauties to floral fantasies, we’ve rounded up the top hairstyle trends with hair extensions of 2024, perfect for any garden party.

    8 Garden Party Glam Hairstyles

    Bohemian Braid Crown

    First up, the bohemian braid crown really is the crowning glory of popular braids hairstyles this summer. This hairstyle combines a relaxed vibe with intricate detailing, making it ideal for garden parties. To achieve this look, start by creating two side braids using clip-in hair extensions for added volume. Wrap each braid around the top of your head to form a crown and secure with bobby pins. To complete the boho chic look, finish with a flower claw clip. This hairstyle not only looks stunning but also keeps your hair off your face, allowing you to enjoy the festivities comfortably.

    Loose Waves

    Loose waves with floral accessories are another fantastic option for laid back hairstyles at outdoor events. Loose waves are the epitome of effortless beauty. Begin by curling your hair loosely with a beach waver tool or large-barrel curling iron, then clip in some wavy or curly extensions to add length and volume. Decorating your waves with small, scattered flower clips gives a whimsical feel that's perfect for summer garden parties. Use a lightweight hairspray to keep your waves intact without weighing them down. 

    Sleek High Ponytail

    For a modern and slicked back look, consider the sleek high ponytail. This hairstyle is perfect for keeping your hair off your face and neck during warm summer days. Straighten your hair and gather it into a high ponytail, then attach our wrap around clip-in ponytail extension for extra length and volume. The sleek high ponytail not only looks sophisticated but also stays in place, allowing you to dance and move freely at your garden party. Pair this look with bold cat eyes and contour for a striking, snatched contrast.

    Fishtail Braid

    If you’re a fan of braids, the fishtail braid is a must-try. This intricate braid looks complicated but is surprisingly easy to create, especially with the help of our seamless clip-in hair extensions. Start by dividing your hair into two sections, then take small pieces from the outer edges and cross them over to the opposite side. Continue this pattern until you reach the end of your hair and secure with an elastic band. For a fuller braid, gently tug at the sections to loosen them slightly. The fishtail braid exudes elegance and works beautifully for any garden party setting. 

    Half Up Half Down

    Half-up, half-down styles are perfect for those who want the best of both worlds. This hairstyle combines the sophistication of an updo with the relaxed feel of flowing locks. To achieve this look, gather the top section of your hair and secure it with a pretty accessory, like a decorative clip or a small floral arrangement. Add some clip-in extensions to the lower half of your hair for added volume and length. This versatile hairstyle can be dressed up or down with decorative pins and floral accessories, making it ideal for a romantic rooftop date or a summer wedding guest look.

    Classic Chignon

    For a romantic and timeless look, consider the classic chignon. This low bun is both elegant and practical, keeping your hair secure while you enjoy your garden party. Start by pulling your hair into a low ponytail and securing it with an elastic band. Twist the ponytail into a bun and secure with bobby pins. To add a touch of glamour, incorporate a flower claw clip or a decorative hairpin. If you need to tame frizz or fly-aways, use our moisturising silky spray to keep the hair by your face framed beautifully, whilst also enhancing the fullness of your bun. 

    Messy Bun

    Messy buns are another great option for laid back hairstyles. They’re quick, easy, and perfect for an effortlessly chic look. To create a messy bun, gather your hair into a high ponytail and secure it with an elastic band. Twist the ponytail around itself to form a bun, then secure with bobby pins. Pull out a few strands around your face to soften the look and add a clip in top up piece up if you want a fuller bun or add a clip in fringe for extra flair. This hairstyle is perfect for keeping cool while still looking stylish at your garden party.tThis hairstyle is perfect for keeping cool while still looking stylish at your garden party.

    Braided Ponytail

    Finally, the braided ponytail! If you’re up for recreating this look, start by braiding a section of your hair from the front and secure it with an elastic band. Gather the rest of your hair into a high ponytail and incorporate the braid by attaching our wrap around clip-in ponytail, then wrap a small section of hair around the base of the ponytail to hide the elastic band. This hairstyle is perfect for outdoor activities, keeping your hair neat and stylish all day long.
