Summer Festival Hairstyles to add to your summer plans!

Summer Festival Hairstyles to add to your summer plans!

When it comes to festival hair, there is a fine line between fun styles, practicality and styles which are suitable for dry shampoo. Whilst easy maintenance hairstyles are popular, there is the freedom to be as over the top, fabulous and as extra as you want. 

We have pulled together some styles and essential tips and tricks for the festival season. All to get you ready for embracing the music, the weather and all to make you look good and feel great!

As a key part to the festival, you need to ensure you are prepared with the right equipment and we recommend grabbing the below before you head, and as part of your festival prep:

  • A lightweight hairbrush and comb
  • Plenty of hair ties and grips 
  • Hairspray
  • Glitter
  • Clips
  • Headbands
  • Dry shampoo

Once you have your creation kit ready, its time to decide your style! Here are some of the hottest styles for your festival season:

Space Buns

Space buns are a classic for a festival. They are great for accentuating thick hair, and give a strong 90’s look. Creating two equal-sized buns on your head is easy, by separating the hair down the middle and tying into two bunches, and then wrapping the hair around in a tie. This is a playful look which works on any hair length or style and keeps your hair out of your face, ready for the music. 

Bubble Braids

Taking the concept of a schoolgirl braid and giving it an extra lift and tons of volume. Bubble braids are easy to master. Perfect for day 2 or 3 since hair washing as dry shampoo and some natural hair grease will help hold these for your hair. As a super versatile hairstyle idea, bubble braids can be factored into a half-up-half-down do or worked into a full up do, depending on your preference and the vibe you are going for. 

Messy buns

Messy buns are no longer just reserved for the working from home crew. Festivals are back, and with them comes a new lease of life for the messy bun – taking half of your hair and throwing it up into an artfully creative and fun knot on top of your head. What you do with the rest of your hair is up to you – we love loose beachy waves and a hint of back brushed styling to add some drama and volume to your hair. 

Braided Pigtails

Arguably the best thing about festival braids is that you can do them on day one and they will likely see you through at least a couple of days, keeping your hair looking stylish, away from your face, and photo-ready at all times. Elevate your braided pigtails by weaving a colourful streak into each side or add hair gems for that little bit of sparkle. 

Natural Waves

One of the most popular festival hairdos of the 21st century. There is nothing that screams ‘classic festival vibes’ more clearly than surfer waves, with nothing more than a little wave and texture in the hair, made better with a couple of days of no water and only dry shampoo to keep it under control. The number one lowkey option.
