Oktoberfest: Dirndl hairstyles for short hair
When it's "O'zapft is" again in September, there's only one thing on women's minds: How do I style myself for the Oktoberfest? Which dirndl looks best on me? And what do I do with my hair? Is my hair just too short for Oktoberfest styling? We have some great ideas for Dirndl hairstyles for short hair.
Matching the hairstyle to the Dirndl
Short hair has one advantage at the Oktoberfest: the view of the beautiful décolleté is not blocked by long braided creations or flowing curls. Any hairstyle, whether conjured from long or short hair, should always match the Dirndl. The chosen necklace should also make its grand entrance on the Wiesn days. This is the only way to create the perfect look.
Short hairstyles for the Wiesn
Short hairstyles are also a great way to create a stylish look to match the Dirndl. Even the classic bob, the long bob or the pixie can be beautifully styled for the Oktoberfest.
Braided hairstyles are not taboo. Even braiding individual strands looks great. Every short hairstyle can also be embellished with flowers. Clasps and hairpins provide the necessary hold.
Styling a long bob for Oktoberfest
The long bob is a popular hairstyle in general. In everyday life, this length is ideal between short and long hair. As a basis for a hairstyle for the Oktoberfest, it is not so easy. Here is a nice idea of how braided hairstyles go with a long bob. One variation, for example, would be to simply braid one strand of the pony. Wear the fringes parted on the side. This creates a wonderfully girly look.
Waterfall Braids for short hair
Waterfall braids are a great idea for Oktoberfest hairstyles for short hair! Waterfall braids are a variation of the French braid. The waterfall effect is created by leaving a strand out of each braid and letting it hang down playfully. Perfect for bob hairstyles or chin-length hair: part the hair on the side, separate a wide strand of hair. Then divide it into two sections. Then lay the front section over the other. Let the second strand fall. Then take a new strand of top hair and lay it over the first. Repeat until you have braided as much as you want.
Braided hairband with beach waves for short hair
Even for the inexperienced, this look, a braided hair band, is easy to do. Simply section off two narrow strands at the front of the head. Braid each strand and tie the ends together with an invisible hair tie. Style the rest of the hair into loose beach waves with a curling iron or straightener. Remember to apply heat protection to the hair beforehand! Fix the look with hairspray and the braided Dirndl look is finished.
Braided hairstyle: Braided wreath for short hair
This braided hairstyle is difficult to achieve with ultra-short cuts like the pixie. But with chin-length hair, a braided wreath can certainly be conjured up in the hair. Step-by-step instructions:
- For this elegant short hairstyle, first part your hair.
- Then braid the hair in French style on each side from the crown to the nape of the neck. If some strands are not long enough to be braided, simply take them back with a few hair clips.
- At the nape of the neck, tie the hair into a mini chignon and fix the finished hairstyle with hairspray.
As this version of the braided hairstyle is not very easy and involves a lot of work at the back of the head, a friend should help.
Boxer braids for short hair
Boxer braids are totally on trend. The ideal alternative to the more romantic waterfall braids. And here's how to get boxer braids as a hairstyle for Oktoberfest with short hair:
- Part your hair.
- Then part the hair into two sections. It is important that the hair is combed well.
- Put all the hair to the back.
- Now take a thin strand and divide it into 3 small strands.
- Braid this hair down to the nape of the neck into a Dutch braid.
- Tie with a thin hair tie.
- Repeat on the other side of the head and you have an extravagant boxer braid for short hair.
Gretchen braid as a Dirndl hairstyle
Whether you have long or shorter hair, the Gretchen braid is one of the most beautiful Dirndl hairstyles if you wear a longer bob.
Step-by-step instructions on how to style this Wiesn hairstyle for short hair:
- First, part your hair in the middle.
- Braid the hair on both sides.
- Tie with a small, transparent hair tie.
- Then carefully fold the two braids upwards and pin them in place with bobby pins.
The most beautiful accessory for Oktoberfest short hairstyles
Flowers, flowers, flowers! Whether as a wreath of real flowers or as a hair band with a deceptively real artificial variation: flowers are the number one accessory on the list of Wiesn hairstyles for short hair. It's best to buy flowers in a shop. You can also have them ready-made if you tell the florist or hairdresser what you need them for. If you want the flower decoration to sit well in your hair, your hair should have a good grip and the flower decoration should be securely fastened with hairpins and possibly a barrette.
Dirndl hairstyle for fine, short hair
If the hair is very fine, the greatest braiding skills will not be of much use. In this case, you should actually go for hairstyles with slight waves in the form of beach waves. Simply style them with a curling iron and keep them in shape with hairspray or texture spray. A Pixie can also be spiced up with a few bobby pins. Attach four or five bobby pins to form a pattern in the hair.
An Oktoberfest hairstyle that lasts
It's not just about having a good idea for a modern traditional look with short hair. The styling should also last. Here are a few tips:
- Do not braid hair that has just been washed !
Especially with shorter hair, the hair should have a good grip. The hair should be combed or brushed well before each styling. Then select the strand to be braided and braid the hair tightly together. It can always be pulled apart a little afterwards. But the basic hold must be there.
- Texture sprays give the hair grip and ensure that the hair is not statically charged. Once the Oktoberfest hairstyle for short hair is styled, it needs long-lasting hairspray to set it. If the festival is a bit rainy and the walk is longer, a spray against humidity (Anti-Humidity Hair Spray) protects against frizz and unsightly frizz.
