You wanna know where all the cool kids were hanging out last weekend? Afro-Punk, that’s where. The eighth annual multicultural music festival happened in my ‘hood this past Saturday and Sunday so I had no excuse not to go. I don’t know what I enjoyed more: the bands or the people-watching. Check out some of the bold beauty statements I spotted.
Love this diva’s hot pink lipstick and adorable side buns. And get a load of her eyebrows–they’re full and fabulous.
Braids were everywhere at the park, but this girl wins the award for Longest Braids Ever. I’m gonna steal her little scarf-around-the-head idea. Too cute.
Another great braided style worn with a casual tee and a beautifully bare face.
Pair winged-out eyeliner with edgy hair and what do you get? Retro-punk.
Unexpectedly pretty: Matchy-matchy makeup and earrings.
I’m a fan of any woman with the confidence to rock black lipstick. Homegirl is killing it!
This look screams “1990s house party” and I love it.
The headband is super-girly, but the sunglasses and fuchsia lipstick add a dose of attitude. Nice!
So there you have it. And that’s just a tiny sample of the insanely stylish peeps roaming around the Afro-Punk festival. Which of these looks do you heart the most? Did you go to Afro-Punk?
