Bantu knots are created by twisting and wrapping sections of hair into small buns all over your head. This classic and fun protective style lets you look cute while you’re active.

3. Side Braid Into Ponytail

Bandanas are the perfect multi-use camp accessory: they’re practical and can be styled in many ways. Choose one in a color or pattern you love to personalize your camp look.

9. Flat Twists

Flat twists are a protective style that lasts a few days and gives you beautiful curls when you unravel them. Re-twist them easily whenever you need; here’s how.

10. Space Buns

The fun and quirky space buns are unavoidable when it comes to summer hairstyles. They can be created even on short hair: half-up space buns look adorable with a bob.

11. Bubble Braided Bangs

Keep your bangs out of your face by tying them into a narrow ponytail a couple of inches above your hairline. Gather more hair from the sides and tie into another ponytail further back. Repeat, fluff the braid, and you’re ready to hang out!

12. Braid Crown

The braid crown keeps hair off your face and your neck, making it an essential camp hairstyle.

13. Box Braids

Long-lasting and low-maintenance, box braids are perfect for keeping your hair protected and looking good. Go for a shorter style for camp to stay as cool as possible.

14. Low Ponytail

Secure your hair at the nape of your neck to create a simple and comfortable low ponytail that’s also hat-friendly.

17. French Braid

The classic French braid will keep your hair secure while you’re busy with fun activities. If you have layered hair, instead of one braid at the center of the head, create two braids on each side to keep the shorter strands tucked.

18. Cornrows

Cornrows will keep your hair in place and can last you for weeks with proper care, so you’re set for camp. Sleep in a silk bonnet and keep your scalp clean and hydrated to help your cornrows last longer and your hair stay healthy.

The fishtail braid is a neat and pretty style that you’ll want to show off, but it also practical and looks super cute even when you wear it with a hat.

The pull-through braid is easy to create and perfect for any camp activity, from sports to chilling by the campfire.

22. Side Twist

A quick twist on one or both sides of the head before you tie your hair into a ponytail will make it stay put more securely—and just as importantly, it will also make your hairstyle cuter. Plus, this style is great for all hair types and perfect for short hair.

23. Braid Into Ponytail

Braid your hair from the crown and stop at the nape, then tie the rest into a low ponytail. If you like braiding your hair, you can have lots of fun here with braid styles. If you’re not very skilled, have a friend do it for you.

24. Double Braids

Two side braids look cute, keep hair out of your face, and fit neatly under a hat—a perfect look for camp!

25. Dutch Braids

If you know how to French braid, you can Dutch braid: it’s as easy as reversing the direction of the braid. This hairstyle is neat and secure, and won’t fail you even on most active camp days.
