We all love the fireworks, camping trips, gatherings, and parades associated with the July 4th holiday. So, when Independence Day rolls around, we do it big! To celebrate, many of us dress in patriotic colors from head to toe – all the way down to our hair accessories. But what hairstyle should you choose for the day? That’s the question we’ll dive into in this article. Keep reading to snag some Fourth of July hair inspo tailored to your hair type.

Fourth of July Hairstyles for Type 1 Hair

Though it may not always seem like it, type 1 (straight) hair comes with loads of styling possibilities. Here are a few of them:

  • Top Knot - To achieve this sleek, chic style, pull your hair into a high ponytail, wrap any loose hair around the base, and secure. Throw on a headband to add some interest.

  • Space Buns - Part your hair down the middle, gather the top half into a ponytail, and wind the hanging hair into a loose bun. Repeat on the other side. To dial things up for the occasion, loosely wrap each of your buns in a scarf or festive scrunchie.

Fourth of July Hairstyles for Type 2 Hair

The Fourth of July is the perfect time to show off your type 2 (wavy) hair. Take your pick of the following hairstyles:

  • Low Scarf Pony - Put your waves into a low pony. Then, wrap half of a thin scarf around the base and leave the rest of the fabric loose. Leave out a few wispy strands around your hairline for a more romantic look.

  • Fishtail Braids with Color - Don’t know how to do a fishtail braid? Watch this tutorial. You can do a single braid down the center, two braids down the sides of your head, or freestyle and see what you come up with. Weave some red, white, and blue string throughout the braids for holiday vibes.

Fourth of July Hairstyles for Type 3 Hair

Type 3 (curly) hair is a statement all by itself. Play it up with one of the following 4th of July styles:

  • Half up Half Down - When you want to rock your curls in all their glory but keep them out of your face, go with a half up-half down do’. Pull the front up in a ponytail and let the back hang free. Add a bobby pin star in the front for a little something extra.

  • Halo Braid - This is an angelic style featuring a large braid that wraps around your head like a halo. Be sure to finish the style with an accessory that makes you feel beautiful.

Fourth of July Hairstyles for Type 4 Hair

For the Fourth, you’ll need something equally stunning and practical. The two type 4 (coily/kinky) hairstyles give you just that:

  • High Puff with Accessories – Go big and bold. Define your coils and kinks with a moisturizer and styler of your choice. Then pull them up toward your crown and secure them with bobby pins or an oversized scrunchie. Add your accessories and that’s it!

  • Wrapped Box Braids – If you already love box braids, you can go protective! But instead of taking the traditional route, wrap a few of the braids in red, white, and/or blue thread or yarn.

Choosing your 4th of July style is important, and you can’t go wrong with the styles in this article. But we urge you never to forget the health of your hair. Hair care is a year-round deal, and to give your hair the best care, you need a good deep conditioner and leave-in conditioner.
