Messy Glow Bun | 4th of July Hairstyles

We decided to get really creative with this 4th of July hairstyle! This can be done for any national celebration (July 4th, Canada Day, Australia Day, or for New Year’s Eve, etc.)

About six months ago I was surfing around the internet for fun hair accessories when I stumbled upon a really fun site. It is where I learned about Glowby’s! {Be sure to use coupon code CUTEGIRL10 to receive 10% off of all orders!}

I loved the fiber-optic concept and that you do not have to have a stack of AA batteries stuck in your hair for the lights to work. They do not get hot, and the strands can pretty much work with any style (without breaking). I decided to buy some Glowby’s and try them out.

I used our popular Messy Bun hairstyle as the base concept, and then wove in the strands of the Glowby throughout. {Luminence offers these in a variety of colors, so you can mix and match them for any holiday, or simply use white ones for weddings or formal dances.}

While we were at a fireworks display, our girls were constantly stopped and asked where we found the glow strands. We noticed plenty of people pointing to our girls, and some even wanted to take photos of the styles on their phones.

Trust us, your girls will be noticed with this style!!!

Items Needed:  Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 1-2 large hair elastics, 1 Glowby.

Time Requirement: 5-10 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

Now, it may look like a bear to take the Glowby out of the Messy Bun, but it really is a 2 second process. Since the strands of the Glowby are smooth plastic fiberoptics, they literally slide right out with a gentle tug on the barrette! No pain!

Hope you enjoy this style, which can be used by girls of all ages on any holiday, or by older girls and women at concerts, dance clubs, etc! Enjoy!

Happy Hairdoing,
