    The Best Oktoberfest Hairstyles: All tied up

    Braided hairstyle 2.0: Competition for the Wiesn classic! Classy, very romantic and super easy to do yourself – put a bow on this new style! It is best to secure the twirled strands on the sides with a fine hair elastic before tying it all up with a silk bow. Especially stylish: colour match with the dirndl. Extra tip: With a bit of anti-frizz lotion, the hair falls satiny smooth without 'flying'!

    The Best Oktoberfest Hairstyles: Wiesn Minimalism

    Braided short cut? Of course! Pixie or undercut – really rocking dirndl hairstyles can be conjured up with slightly longer top hair on the crown. The best beauty helpers for this look: Hair wax and hair pins. Before braiding, rub some styling wax into the strands and then lay them over each other alternately. Secure the ends with more hair pins (in the hair colour). Feel free to make a somewhat looser braid, gradually adding new strands from the sides. Finally, secure the style with hair lacquer. Rock the Wiesn!

    The Best Oktoberfest Hairstyles: Fine Braided Crown

    New twist: The braided crown is still the queen of Oktoberfest hairstyles! A fine crowning braid is feminine, traditionally trendy and always quick to style. The latest twist: Braided crown with fringe. The braid is positioned on the crown over the fringe. If you don’t have one, use a fake clip-on fringe with the braided crown covering the hairline. The look: A smooth, straight cut fringe as a clean contrast to the playful braided hairstyle. Regal!

    The Best Oktoberfest Hairstyles: XL Braid

    Cheers to cosiness: We celebrate the proven braid in the new messy look! Loosely braided, the Oktoberfest hairstyle is an even better match for the modern dirndl styling and boisterous Wiesn mood: No need for accurate braiding, nor worrying about the look while partying, riding the roller coaster or dancing. How it’s done: After braiding, casually pull apart the strands and pluck some hair out of the braid with your fingers. Extra tip: For extra volume, also braid some extensions into your hair. After all, things are not done in half-measures at Oktoberfest!

    The Best Oktoberfest Hairstyles: Open for Hats

    Traditional hats! Even the ladies are wearing traditional headgear more often. Today the top accessory is presenting itself in a new, modern look: Trendy colours, lightweight materials and eye-catching details like feathers, flower arrangements and brooches on the brim. In any case, the posh hat is a great styling option for anyone who likes to wear loose hair. Wear it with a tilt and pulled low down on the forehead – simple and effective! The hat is particularly stylish with medium length hair! For those who prefer to pin their hair: A braided chignon on the side works especially well with a hat!

    The Best Oktoberfest Hairstyles: Floral Wreath

    Thank you for the flowers: Blossoming is trendy in 2015! With a loose chignon or in open, slightly wavy romantic hair – the floral wreath is the crowning glory of any style! This trend is blossoming: Floral wreaths are coming off the forehead, moving to the back of the head where they decorate the pretty (braided) chignon!
