Perfect Festival Hair
So the festival season is here and it’s time to get out in the sun and enjoy ourselves, however with this comes the dread of no showers, no straighteners or hairspray resulting in a hair nightmare. But no need to panic, I’ve compiled a few basic tips to use before you set off to tame your otherwise uncontrollable, unruly hair!
Let it lose or hold it down! If you are graced with long locks you have two main options. The first one is to wear it down. Work with the natural texture and movement in your hair using soft mousse’s or test rising sprays to enhance your hairs natural beauty. Avoid using serum or heat protection sprays as this will encourage softness and fly away, flat hair! Your other option is to get it out the way, either bunch it up with twists and plaits and held back with a 70’s hippy like headband, or wear off to one side in a fishtail plait. Both of these are easy to do and there are countless tutorials online! Both these looks can be let down after a day or two to give a beachy wavy look.
Medium Length Hair
Mid length is all the rage right now, celebrity’s including Alexa Chung and Natalie Portman are all wearing these shoulder stroking styles. Smooth the roots rock the ends! Blast dry the roots only aiming the air flow in a downward direction, pull tension through the hair with your fingers. Leave the mid lengths and ends still damp and soak in sea salt spray. Scrunch this about with cold air to achieve a tame yet messy on trend look that should last the weekend!
Ask most of the girls at a festival and they will say your lucky to have shorter hair! Little do they know its a nightmare to maintain. However, hopefully this helps! For bob lengths wear smooth and accessorise with hair bands and flowers as the festival goes on to work with the mess that has formed after a nights sleep in a tent. For fringe heavy pixie cuts use surf putty in the shorter areas to enhance texture and grip the fringe of your face into a quiff. Dry shampoo can be used in the roots to maintain volume however avoid prolonged use unless you want to look like you’ve slept in a pile of chalk!
Hope these tips help! x
