There’s more to festival hair than flower crowns! To fit the bill, it’s got to be cool, and above all, functional. After all, you’re there to have fun! Flowing curls may make you look like a goddess beamed down to Glastonbury, but not so great in a muddy field.
So whether you want to rock a unicorn braid for Coachella cool or a faux mohawk for some serious rock chick vibes, here’s our lineup of festival hairstyles to survive all-daymad dancing, crowd surfing and even four seasons in one day.
Who’s the mane act of the festival? You, of course
Mystical but far from mythical, this is one beautiful beast that can be tamed. Unicorn braids take many forms, from three mini braids finished with a high pony to joining two French braids in the middle. Just fix with Frizz Ease Moisture Barrier Intense Hold Hairspray and fly my pretty, fly!
Who doesn’t want effortless, too-cool-to-care hair?! Spray damp hair with Beach Blonde Sea Salt Spray for texture that says you’re not just in the crowd, you’re with the band.
If you’ve got fabulous natural curls, go for the second-day scrunch with Frizz Ease Dream Curls Daily Styling Spray and everyone will think you’ve just arrived.
Like all dedicated festival goers, these keep coming back year after year. And for good reason - easy to do, out of your face and super cute. Create two high bunches, twist the hair around and secure with a hair elastic.
Double dutch braids
A close cousin of the pipe braids, these are one of the winning hairstyles for camping. Get this done before you go and they’ll last the whole weekend. Finish with Frizz Ease 100% Shine Glossing Mist and no one will know you woke up in a tent.
As easy festival hairstyles go, this has to be one of the easiest. Throw in a braid or two, twist it all up, tease a few bits out and front of the crowd, here you come!
Spray hair with a texturising spray like Beach Blonde Sea Salt Spray, curl the hair into a doughnut shape and secure with kirby grips. Day two and beyond? Throw on a headscarf and no one will know.
Keep it loose and low for chilled-out folksy vibes, or high and wavy for an electro 80s look. Beach Blonde Sea Salt Spray will give you the texture you need to keep it in place all day.
They’re back! And they’re all grown up! To make your look less playground and more catwalk, keep your festival bunches slick and tidy with Frizz Ease Forever Smooth Blow Dry Styling Spray.
When your stylers are at home and the shower queue means missing your favourite band, sometimes you’ve just got to work with what you’ve got. Team your favourite hat with some cute pigtails, crown your unwashed tresses with flowers or simply wrap strands of hair in coloured thread. It’s a festival - go wild!
Festival season… We’ve got it covered! Whether you’re a low maintenance rock chick, a full on glamour puss or somewhere in between, with this amount of festival hair inspiration, you’re sure to take centre stage!
