5 fabulous hairstyles for Kelowna’s favourite activities

Whether you’re the queen of Instagram or a Snapchat star, looking great and feeling good is part of life in the Okanagan. If you’re headed out for a hike or wine tasting with friends, you have the perfect outfit for any occasion - but do you have the perfect hairstyle?

The stylists at Crimson Hair Salon in Pandosy Village took to the streets to showcase how to wear your hair for some of Kelowna’s favourite activities.

Boating on Okanagan Lake

Whether you’re renting a boat with friends or going out for a little SUP action, you can’t go wrong with big, sexy, beach curls. Kick it up a notch with some natural backcombing which will give you that windswept volume that comes from a day spent sailing on the lake.

Hiking Knox Mountain

Hiking is by far the best way to work up an invigorating sweat, and your reward for making it to the top of Knox Mountain is a spectacular, panoramic view of Okanagan Lake and Kelowna. Ditch the basic ponytail and go for fun yet practical boxer braids.

Tara Sebastianis from Crimson Hair Salon says to braid hair under so that the braid stays on top of the hair. It’s a cute look that will keep your locks out of your face while you crush that trail ahead of you.

A Girl’s Night Out at Mission Tap House

It’s Friday night, you’ve had a rough week and all you want is to vent with your girlfriends while you share a bottle of wine at Mission Tap House. Now is not the time to spend two hours on your hair, so try some loose curls with a trendy top knot to keep it fashion-forward. Day two hair? Go for a beautiful, sideswept fishtail braid that’s been pulled apart and looks effortlessly messy.

Cycling Around Downtown

Head to Loop Cruisers with your BFF and rent a couple of bikes before exploring Waterfront Park and City Park in downtown Kelowna. With the wind in your hair, now is the perfect time for some loose beach curls and mini braids that give you that California festival vibe. Don’t forget the flowers!

Wine Tasting With Friends

You may be looking to find your next go-to vino or simply want to indulge in delicious food, and heading to an Okanagan winery is a must when you call Kelowna home. Whether you’re headed out on a romantic date or doing a wine tour with the girls, with the right hair, you can look like a Grecian goddess among the vineyards.

Tara styled a romantic yet messy look that fits right in at Summerhill Organic Estate Winery. The low bun features some loose curls that are bobby pinned in place, making the hairstyle look elegant, but not stuffy.
