It's July, and in the US we've got Independence Day coming up. (Sorry Canadians -- I know I just barely missed you by putting this up when I did....) The World Cup is going on, too.

So show some national pride! Do up your hair with colors you associate with your country, ethnicity, culture, hometown, or anything else you wish. If there's a traditional hairstyle, let us see it! :D

ETA: For the purposes of this, heritage is what makes you, you. Family and location might have something to do with it, they might not. Have fun!

I could brush my hair upside down and do Big Hair. I don't have bangs to do foot high bangs with. *sad* Trying to think of what else I could claim as "heritage". A friend just shared this cutie (http://media-cache-cd0.pinimg.com/originals/46/1f/af/461faf3edc3ff398da7e3a7495e7f79c.jpg) on Facebook, maybe I could do that tomorrow. . .

My heritage traditional style (Russia) would be a plain braid tied with ribbon, sadly a picture I do not have, not can take now (stupid bad lighting at home). Some here's the closest, no ribbon.

Just braid with ribbon.

Oh and Japanese styling for a dance performance.

I'm English (possibly a bad day to announce this)... so... Avalon! (the fork's design is called Avalon)

And what a great idea for a thread! I'll see if I can come up with something.

Okey I'm going to raid my moms closet tomorrow.
Hope I find something, or I'll have to think of something else.

I keep forgetting to do this! :doh:

Here's my it's-hot-and-humid-and-my-hair-needs-washing-benign-neglect-at-its-best heritage shot. I'll try to get a better one before the month is over!

Low double buns.
I'm a melted-pot American, but the biggest part is German. :)

I can claim all of the UK as my family's background, as well as Germany and Denmark. My husband loves Norse culture, and it had rubbed off on me. So, for my heritage pic, here is me, wearing Mjollnir.
