Fantastic Festival Hair Ideas

28 June 2019

The summer means that it’s festival season – a time that brings a wonderful heady mix of music, partying and attention-grabbing fashion. And for many festival-goers, making a major hair statement is a big part of the whole experience.  But, if you’ve ever attended a festival, you’ll know that maintaining on-trend tresses can be a big challenge. So in this article the team have shared their favourite festival hair ideas and tips.

This summer looks particularly promising weather-wise for Festivals.  But before you start packing your glow sticks and wellies (we all know weather forecasts can be wrong) book yourself in for an Ultimate Treatment. This unique protein-based technology from Kerastraight is great for strengthening, nourishing and hydrating your hair. In a nutshell it will make it more manageable – something you’ll most definitely want when you’re struggling to style your locks in the confines of a tent.

If you’re looking for inspiration for your festival hair look, you’ll find some great images on social media, particularly Instagram and Pinterest, which are bursting with ideas. Festival favourites always include plaits, fishtail braids and multiple top-knots. But if these more structured looks aren’t your thing, half-up, half-down messy updos are a great, easy to create and maintain look, as are beachy waves.

Whatever look you choose, remember it needs to be fabulous and functional. You are likely to be spending all day outside, whether it’s in scorching sunshine, rain, or high levels of humidity. You are also likely to be dancing a lot, or at least jumping up and down to your favourite bands, so you want a look that won’t deconstruct as the day wears on.

If you’re stuck for inspiration, book in for a consultation with one of our experienced team. We can chat through what will work best for you given the look you like, what you’ll be doing at the Festival, the weather forecast and what styling resources you’ll have with you during the event.

What to pack for your festival hair

It’s also worth taking a small but effective collection of styling products with you, particularly if you are planning to make a weekend of it.

If you’re looking to wear your hair down, we thoroughly recommend Kerastraight’s Glossing Texture Crème. It’s a great camping companion as it recharges your hair’s texture at the end of the day. The unique formulation allows you to re-activate or transform your style with a blast of heat from your travel hairdryer.

Moisture Mist is another must – it is perfect for revitalising hair that has been exposed to the sun all day. It’s great for adding hydration and shine to straight or curly hair – a quick spritz, and you’ll be ready to party all night.

Not to mention our festival hero product – Unite 7 Seconds Refresher which is much more than just a dry shampoo.  It absorbs oil but still leaves your hair looking and feeling silky and shiny. Simply spray, brush and go!
