  • Down-To-Earth Oktoberfest Hairstyles

    Mermaid Braid for Trendsetters

    Mermaid Braid for Trendsetters

    'See and be seen' is her Wiesn motto – this trendsetter has the entire dirndl collection at home and a different traditional costume in her wardrobe for almost every day – matching accessories included, of course! A simple French braid would quickly get lost in her sensational Oktoberfest outfits. That is why this fashion-conscious festival-goer presents herself with truly eye-catching hair in a mermaid braid. The exuberant braid combines traditional and trendy to perfection. While it appears reminiscent of a classic braided hairstyle at first glance, it reveals its full Wiesn hit potential upon closer examination. The secret lies in the elaborate undone look created by the loosely intertwined strands of hair. This casual messy chic qualifies the mermaid braid as a relaxed party hairstyle

    Flower Hair Clips for the Punk Princess

    Tradition? No way! The punk princess shapes the Wiesn world to her liking. This includes a reinterpretation of traditional fashion with numerous styling contrasts. Combinations like a detailed dirndl with a rocking leather jacket for instance are entirely to her taste. So she doesn’t even attempt to tame her wild curls with a classic braided hairstyle. Quite to the contrary: she counts on romantic curls highlighted by delicate, partly sparkling flower clips. A striking eye line framing the entire eye completes the wow effect

    Updo For The Sociable One

    Updo for the Sociable One

    She knows all the Wiesn hits by heart and is always the first to stand on the ale-bench. The sociable one is welcome in any tent – and not just thanks to her sunny disposition. Her look also attracts plenty of followers. When it comes to the hairstyle for instance, she chooses an updo that looks wonderful with a classy dirndl and jacket: The hair is not simply tied in a knot but elaborately twisted at the back of the neck. This creates a modern hairdo that also works extremely well as an evening style for the after-Wiesn party. Pretty traditional hats go very well with this hairstyle and fit perfectly since the knot sits low at the back of the neck

    Boxer Braids For The Adventuress

    Boxer Braids for the Adventuress

    Higher, faster, farther! The adventuress is always searching for the next kick. She loves the shooting gallery, merry-go-round and all the other rides. Since she needs her hair to stay in place, she styles her mane with boxer braids. Braided strictly across the head, they are not just highly popular but also ideal as an Oktoberfest hairdo. To keep the “Million Dollar Baby” look from being too reminiscent of fighting sports, the double braid for the dirndl fashion is refined with small hair pearls

    Ponytail For The Connoisseur

    Ponytail for the Connoisseur

    Cotton candy, toasted almonds, candied apples – for the connoisseur, the many goodies are just as much part of the folk festival as pints of beer. Low-carb, diets and calorie counting? Not during the Wiesn time. Amusing yourself is an Oktoberfest imperative. Cosy and uncomplicated is good. Yet the connoisseur does not settle for simplicity. She adds a twist to the ponytail: the hair is gathered at the back of the neck, leaving out a wide strand on either side. These strands are then wrapped alternately around the ponytail and secured with bobby pins. Finally the hairstyle is refined with a delicate ribbon
