Easy Hairstyles to Wear to a Concert

All Things Hair | 30 August 2016

Rock out with hairstyles that fit the part. 

Let’s be real, more times than not, despite being 100% worth it, concerts are characterized by cramped settings, lots of jumping, and inevitably sweating while rocking out. That said, when it comes to your concert look, easy hairstyles are the best option because if you dance a little too hard, you’ll be able to easily fix it away from the comfort of your own bathroom mirror. From accent waves to messy ponytails, we’ve got you covered for your next arena tour. Keep reading to get inspired!

8 Easy Hairstyles for a Concert

1. Accent Braids

Let your hair flow in its natural pattern for a totally laid back look. Since we’re suckers for details, amp it up a bit with one or two accent braids that will peek through your locks every now and again. Simply take one inch sections of hair and braid in whichever fashion you please–traditional, fish or rope.

2. Dreadlock Twisted Pony

To all the loc’d ladies of the world, we envy your texture. The texture of dreads makes tying and styling hair pretty simple and completely chic. If you want to add a bit more to your twisted dread pony, take our advice and add a shell or two.

3. Braided Pigtails

Braided pigtails, despite having a bad rep as being totally juvenile, are actually quite hip at shows. If you’re feeling like you resemble your eight-year old cousin a little too closely, add a touch of hair color to the ends for a more sophisticated, yet extremely playful look.

4. Headbands

Whether you want to wear flowers in your hair or a folded bandana, we’re all about it. Not only does it add a nice splash of color, it also works like a gem at keeping your hair out of your face when your fave DJ hits the stage.

5. Half Up Pigtail Buns

Typical of ravers in the ’80s and ’90s, the space bun hairstyle is back, alive and well in the heart of 2016. And we have to say, we’re quite the fan. Think of it as the perfect combo by keeping hair out of your face, while also showcasing that long lion’s mane you’ve waited so long to grow.

6. Glitter Roots

If you’re the girl who loves to wear her hair down but want to spice it up somehow, this is the look for you. Forget about clips, headbands and spending time on braids; the addition of glitter will be just the eye-catching addition you’ve been craving. And you can make this glitter roots combo yourself! Simply mix equal parts of the TRESemmé Tres Two MEGA Firm Control Gel with your favorite glitter (we adore rainbow glitter) and then apply to your roots.

8. Messy Low Pony

Swoop your hair back and secure it with a double-twist of your favorite hair tie. For a nice little detail, take a small section of hair and wrap it around where your hair tie is and tuck the ends underneath. If you’re looking to achieve a slightly edgier pony, tease your hair with a dense boar bristle brush; it’ll give your hair the TLC it needs while simultaneously making you hair appear rougher.
