Whether you’re daytripping to the Isle of Wight, heading to Glasto or playing it cool at Coachella, we have all the products, tips and advice to get you through the festival season in style.
Here’s your festival hair plan, split into three handy parts – what to pack, how to style your hair once you’re there, and how to look after your hair once you get home.
Hair products to pack for a festival
If you’re lucky enough to be glamping, getting a warm shower should be fairly straightforward. Campers, don’t despair – the showers are often much quieter in the middle of the afternoon, from around 2pm – 5pm, so set some time aside for your daily glow-up.
Here’s your packing checklist for picture-perfect festival hair:
Products for easy festival hairstyles
Smooth, manageable hair worn loose
Unless you’re glamping somewhere seriously decadent, straightening irons and salon-worthy blow dries are a no go - you’ll need to find a different solution to staying groomed. Our Frizz Ease Secret Agent Touch-Up Crème is the perfect solution for long hair prone to puffiness and frizz.
When applied to dry, brushed hair, it acts like a moisturiser - instantly concealing frizzy ends and taming flyaways. Finish off with a spritz of our Volume Lift Hairspray to hold your style in place without weighing down your hair.
Volumised, textured hair with attitude
Once you’ve nailed your perfect down 'do, there are some easy ways to maintain it. The essential building blocks to creating decent volume are a body building mousse or blow-dry spray followed by a super holding spray.
Our Frizz Ease Moisture Barrier Intense Hold Hairspray locks in style and seals out humidity to keep frizz at bay - lift sections of your hair and spray directly into the roots for awesome volume.
Bouncy, effortless natural curls
A festival is not the time to do battle with your curls - embrace them the easy way with our Dream Curls Daily Styling Spray. It defines misbehaving waves and curls without making them stringy or stiff, and can also be used to revive your style once it starts to flag.
Just spray, gently scrunch and let air-dry.
Beachy, natural waves
Don’t be misled by the name, you don’t need to hit the beach to turn heads in the VIP area.
To wake up with natural-looking, effortless beach waves, separate your hair into sections, spritz each section lightly with our Moisture Barrier Intense Hold Hairspray and plait each section, securing the bottom with a hairband.
In the morning, carefully unplait your hair and run your fingers through the waves. Spray with hairspray again to keep your style in place, and viola! Surf girl hair without setting foot on the sand.
Products for post-festival hair care You may feel like you’re on the mend, but your hair may need a little bit of help before it gets back to normal. Here’s how to repair and revive your hair after days of late nights and early starts.
