Jourdan Dunn’s power ponytail

It’s no wonder Joudan Dunn went for an updo with the summer heat wave we’ve been having in London recently.

Showing off her modelling skills, Jourdan posted a picture of her dark brown wavy tresses in a high ponytail. She complemented her ‘beat the heat’ look with chic micro sunglasses for a cool ’90s vibe. Credit: @jourdandunn

Mabel’s straight sleek tresses

The humidity didn’t stop singer Mabel from showing off her raven-coloured locks over the weekend. Wearing her dark hair straight and sleek, Mabel looked every inch a star in this cheeky picture she posted on her Instagram. Credit: @mabel 

Editor’s tip: For touch-ups and hair emergencies, while you’re at your festival, keep the VO5 Frizz Free Serum Wand close to hand to smooth down any pesky flyaways.

Raye’s curly pineapple

Those with curly hair know it’s a struggle to maintain curl definition, especially in the summer heat, which is why we love Raye’s relaxed pineapple.

Ditching her pink hue for a bronde, Raye looked sporty and fab as she prepared to hit the stage in her England football top. Credit: @raye

Lily Allen’s icy pink hue

No party is complete without the after-party, and that’s exactly where singer Lily Allen was spotted. The hair chameleon has tried almost every hue imaginable and her latest look is super cool. Yes, Lily Allen is now rocking icy pink hair and we love it!

If that wasn’t enough festival looks for you, see all the Wireless Festival 2017 pictures, below.

This radio and TV presenter is always rocking a fresh new look and Wireless Festival 2017 was no different.

Tying her long, natural hair into a ponytail, Yinka Bokinni kept the rest of her look simple with a makeup-free face to ensure all attention was on her new ‘do. What a hair chameleon she is!

Editor’s tip: Keep your locks looking healthy and moisturised with a leave-in conditioner, like the Toni & Guy Leave-in Conditioner. This will help to protect against frizz and humidity and give a smooth finish to your strands.

Leomie, Winnie and Jourdan showcase fresh hairstyles

Not 1 but 3 world famous models packed together can only mean one thing: 3 times as much hair envy, of course!

We just love that Leomie decided to up the ante by weaving in a pastel hue for full-on festival vibes (a style also recently spotted on Tallia Storm). While Winnie Harlow stuck to a short and sweet style with her dark pixie crop teamed with large gold hoop earrings.

And last but not least, our favourite Brit model Jourdan Dunn added a touch of va-va-voom to the girl squad with her volumious curls and bronde (aka blonde and brown) hair colour. Now, how do we get an invite to this friendship group?

Bella Hadid’s clipped lob

Bella Hadid has been spending quite a bit of time in London and was recently spotted chilling backstage at the Wireless Festival with a cute, ’90s-inspired lob (AKA long bob).

While hanging out with Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Bella rocked a centre parting with flicked dark brown tresses and accessorised the look with twin, pearl hair slides. Perhaps they were holding back those new bangs the model recently revealed?

Editor’s tip: To keep your hair smooth as Bella’s try using the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Oil for locks that feel silky and look perfectly polished.

Mabel’s cornrows

What better way to beat the heat than with a braided hairstyle, eh? Mabel wore her long dark brown tresses in stunning cornrows, which not only looked great but are also the perfect, long-lasting protective hairstyle.

So, whether you have a weekend of partying planned or living out of a tent at another festival, Mabel’s braids are hassle-free and definitely need to be considered for your next look.
