As we head into the warmer months, there seem to be festivals happening left, right, and centre! There’s nothing like planning your outfit, makeup, and hair for an event – especially one that lets you get creative. Whether you like colour, sparkles, sequins, or anything in between, there’s absolutely going to be a hairstyle to suit you. If you’re after some festival hairstyle inspo, you’ve come to the right place!
Half up half down pigtails
This hairstyle has become a classic look for a good reason – not only is it super cute, it’s a great way to keep your hair up and out of your face without fully having to put it back! This look is also really versatile. If you want to add a little something extra to it, try braiding your pigtails or creating some high buns with them. It’s also completely up to you whether you rock this style with curly or straight hair – the options are truly endless!
The bubble pony
This style is a great way to take a regular pony to a whole new level while looking like you put in way more effort than you did (we love an easy look!). All you need for this hairstyle is a few extra hair ties to create ‘bubbles’ in your ponytail, adding volume to your look. Simply tie your hair ties spaced out down your pony and pull each section out a little to create that ‘bubble’ effect.
Yep, we’re talking those mini clips that were super popular throughout the 00s – they’re definitely making a huge comeback! If you love them as much as we do, they are easy to incorporate into your festival hairstyle. A great way to use them is to create some mini plaits throughout your hair after you’ve styled it down and attach a few mini clips down each plait. It’s super simple yet effective!
Space buns are a classic for a reason! There are so many different ways to style them – you can add braids, colour, or even sparkles. They are a great option if you’d prefer to wear your hair completely up (especially if it’s going to be hot!). Whether you have short or long locks, space buns are easy to master after a little practice.
Why not get festive at your festival? And no, we definitely don’t mean adding Christmas tree tinsel into your hair (although that could be super cute!). We’re talking about adding very fine strips of tinsel into your hair to create a subtle but effective shimmer. It’s a great way to add some shine and sparkle without committing to a full-on glitter look.
