Welcome to the first day of ESSENCE Music Festival! The concerts are going to be amazing and the food is knee-weakening, but the hair trends are truly killing it.

We’re already noticing a ton of fierce natural styles, like this intricate twisted updo. And color is having a huge moment, whether it’s single process blonde or red, or these bold burgundy streaks. To keep your twists or dreadlocks moisturized in the New Orleans heat, try Knatty Dread Natural Loc Cream ($15, knattydread.com).

Stay tuned for more trendspotting from the front lines at EMF!
