Fall is in the hair!
Don’t you just adore Sarasota during autumn?! The weather is sublime, tons of can’t-miss happenings are occuring around town . . . . and the drop in humidity means you get to wear your hair however you want! Here are some of our fave fall events in Sarasota and the hairstyle ideas we’ll be creating (and sporting). See you out there, my dears!
We never miss this chance to travel back in time and channel our inner knights and fair maidens. Three whole weekends are needed to cram in all the jousting, cosplaying, pubbing, art-market shopping, rides and games, performances and (of course) people watching.
When: Nov. 4-5; Nov. 11-12; Nov. 18-19
Where: Sarasota Fairgrounds
Hair: Faire Hair means braids on braids on braids! Renaissance braid styles are romantic, dramatic and either as simple or as opulent as you want to make them.
The biggest gathering of pavement artists in the world never fails to dazzle and delight! This interactive, vibrant, and wonderfully unique festival is a celebration of art, performance and creativity. Look down and you’ll see giant chalk masterpieces and 3D illusions; look up to behold the hot air balloons decorating the blue sky.
When: Nov. 10-13
Where: Venice Airport Fairgrounds
Hair: Become a work of art yourself! Be inspired by the chalk art and have fun with fashion colors.
This one ticks all our boxes: delicious cuisine, fine wines, and giving back to the community! Sample hundreds of wines from around the world, nibble dishes from Sarasota’s best restaurants . . . and support wonderful and worthy local charities in the process.
When: Saturday, Nov. 11
Where: Sarasota Polo Club
Hair: Looks that are sophisticated, yet unfussy —like this half-up, half-down style with a twist— a perfect complement to the artisinal food and wine offerings.
The details in these sand sculptures never fail to amaze us, and each year the professional entries only get better and better. Admire these temporary masterpieces, and even discover if you have hidden sand-art talents of your own! (during sand-sculpting lessons or during the amateur competition).
When: Nov. 10-13
Where: Siesta Beach
Hair: Beach waves, obvs! Spritz on Aveda Texture Tonic for that perfectly effortless tousled effect.
Stroll along the bay, shop, and feast your eyes on original works by artists from around Florida and the U.S. The impressive variety of mediums includes paintings, sculpture, wood, glass art, photography, metalwork, jewelry, digital art and ceramics.
When: Nov. 18-19
Where: Gulf Stream
Hair: For this elevated event, we’re going more formal with a classic chignon or similar elegant updo.
If you need a hand in creating these looks (or any others), you know Nuovo stylists are the best beauty pros in Sarasota, hands down. If you didn’t know that, come on in and let us play with your hair . . . and teach you how to create these looks yourself. With all the Sarasota fall events on tap, you’ll want plenty of selfie-friendly styles on hand!
