V Festival 2017: The best backstage beauty looks from the stars
This weekend saw global music stars like Ellie Goulding, Jay-Z and P!nk descend on Chelmsford and Staffordshire here in the UK for this year’s Virgin V Festival.
But as well as the players on the main stage, there was also plenty of star-spotting to be done from around the festival itself, with a number of high-profile festival-goers in attendance. So as you can imagine, there was no shortage of star-spotting to be done between sets!
Now, if you missed out on this year’s event, and are currently experiencing a bout of V Fest FOMO, don’t you worry, as we’ve put together an edit of braids, glitter and crimping galore!
See the best celebrity hair looks from V Festival 2017
Stacey Solomon’s double Dutch braids
Singer and TV presenter Stacey Solomon rose to the occasion this weekend with this dazzling, sequin-encrusted ensemble!
Amazing rainbow dress aside, her waist-length double Dutch braids (complete with gold glitter roots, of course!) just scream festival fashion.
Editor’s tip: Braids are perfect for festivals as they hide all manner of dirty, greasy or glitter-filled hair.
To give your braids a little extra staying power, prep your tresses with an allover spritz of a texturising sea salt spray (like the VO5 Sea Salt Spray), to add a grittiness to your strands and help your style stay put.
Amber Davies’ unicorn braid
Love Island winner Amber Davies usually wears her dark hair down but opted for a unique braided ponytail ‘do for V fest this year. Combining a punky unicorn braid with a sleek, glossy pony, this is glamping at its finest! Credit: @amb_d
Lottie Moss’ braided half-updo
As Kate Moss’ younger sis, style is in Lottie Moss’ blood. So, it’s no wonder the teen model had a suitably stylish hairdo to match for this weekend’s festivities!
With her creamy blonde locks curled and styled into a braided half-updo, this was the perfect girly festival style to rock for a weekend of fun.
Jess Glynne’s fishnet cap
We’ve already seen a fishnet resurgence in the fashion world and now it’s spread into the world of hair, too, thanks to singer Jess Glynne, who rocked a studded fishnet cap for her performances over the weekend.
With her long red hair left free-flowing and crimped (with a subtle hidden braid thrown in for good measure), the trendsetter is sure to inspire a crimping comeback!
Editor’s tip: Fancy giving Jess’ crimped style a try? Check out our heatless (and tent-friendly!) crimped hairstyle tutorial, here.
And to ensure your hair stays perfectly kinky but not frizzy, make sure to set your style with a hairspray, such as the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Ultra Brushable Hairspray.
Lottie Tomlison’s hair rings
A quick scroll through make-up artist Lottie Tomlinson‘s Instagram feed confirms that she’s consistently nailing it when it comes to her hair – and this weekend proved no exception!
