The best 5 festival hairstyles

20 Jun

You might be winging your way to Glastonbury as we speak. Hey, you could be reading this from the middle of Worthy Farm. Or you might be going to a festival later this summer. Perhaps you just want to tap into a little festival style.

It’s a kind of boho style – all about low maintenance. It’s simple easy to do hairstyles that can last a couple of days and will keep hair off the face. You want something that’s bang on trend. Here are Dream Girl’s top 5 festival hairstyle ideas.

The fake undercut

Hands up who’s brave enough to do a Miley and razor an undercut. Yeah, thought so. Fake it with this simple style like Lea Michele here. Simply create a deep side parting and then braid using little strands from roots to tip. Keep going until you reach under the ear and pin in place. Easy peasy.

Fringe be gone!

It can get hot and sweaty at festivals. The last thing you want is your fringe sticking to your forehead. Keep it feminine and stylish by using a braid to tidy it away. Start with a deep side parting and braid hair across the front hairline. Secure with a band once you reach the height of your cheekbone. Tucks the ends underneath the hair and fix with a grip.

A messy chignon

You don’t want to look too coiffed at a festival. This style is just perfect for that “what this old thing” laid back style. First tie hair back into a ponytail. Not too high, just below the crown. Backcomb the ponytail to add a little volume. Grab yourself some kirby grips and fix the ends of the ponytail back towards the base. A simple trick, Twist sections around your finger, scrunch down and pin.

Side swept plait

For long hair you might want to sweep it off your face. The side braid is an easy style to wear and looks great too. It’s also a great look for those with long hair or hair extensions. Simply sweep hair over one shoulder. Begin the plait a little above the nape of the neck; not quite as high as a braid but underneath the crown. Continue the plait right down to the tips and secure with a band. Allow the fringe and a few stray strands to line the face.

Boho waves

For long wavy hair you can get an extra boost in length from Dream Girl’s Waves and Curls range of hair extensions. To tease curls without heat simply use kirby grips and some hairspray before you go to sleep. In one inch sections twist hair around the finger and then pin in place with a grip. Once all the hair is twisted back spray to help it fix. Wake up in the morning, uncurl and gently separate the waves. Beachy, festival waves without using heat.
