This year’s most popular festival hairstyle trends are those that require little effort but give a huge impact, such as messy top buns, dip dye hair and super-long plaits and waves.
5 easy festival hair styles:
Boho waves are always a favourite come festival season. This year think super-long. If your hair isn’t quite long enough, then clip in hair extensions are the easiest way to go. They’ll add extra length and volume to the style and can be easily clipped in within minutes so minimal effort required. Team with a head band and you’re good to go!
Dry shampoo and salt spray will be your best go-to hair care product. Spray a little dry shampoo in your roots to get rid of any excess oil whilst also creating volume. Spritz salt spray to the ends of dry hair and scrunch to create instant beach waves.
The top bun is best for second or third day hair as it can hide everything! Use a doughnut to give the bun definition and for a boho take, try braiding one side of the hair first befoe pulling it into a bun or braid underneath the bun too. Hair clips are great for this look too – flower pins and bows give a boho look to the bun and for this try making your hair a little messy.
Festivals are the perfect time to try out a little colour! Hair chalks in pastel or vibrant colours are great at festivals and look brilliant when running through a long fishtail braid. For an even easier take on the trend, try some dip dye clip in hair extensions which are not only less messy but it means you can change your look whenever you feel like it. You can then use them for any hairstyle – whether boho waves, top bun, or any braids. The pop of colour can finish an outfit and is really high up on the style stakes!
Feathers are always a hit at festivals for the boho vibe. Team with denim shorts and ankle boots for a put together yet laid back look.
Feather hair extensions come in a range of colours from natural hues of browns, to vibrant pinks and blues so the options are endless. They can be either clipped in or applied with a micro ring as a more secure option. Hair can then be styled as normal – a great style is hair down wavy with a few feathers placed at the front of the hair.
A favourite festival hair style is the braid – whether this is a long fishtail braid, a braid wrapped around the crown, or French braids. They can even be left in for more than one day so as they get messier the look more ‘undone’ and fits in with the festival style more and more each day! Add flowers weaved into the braids for an ethereal look.
