Easy Concert Hairstyles: Ethereal Festival Styles to Try This Summer

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 do damage control. From accent waves to messy ponytails, we’ve got you covered for your next arena tour. Keep reading to get inspired!

1. Accent Braids

Give your curls a little something extra.

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 while you’re dancing. Simply take one-inch sections of hair and braid in whichever fashion you like –traditional, fishtail or rope braids.

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. As far as easy concert hairstyles go, this one is next-level cool.

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 an accessory. Not only does it add a nice splash of color, but it also works to keep your hair out of your face when your fave DJ hits the stage.

5. Space Buns

Keep your hair up and out of your face.

Typical of ravers in the ’80s and ’90s, the space bun hairstyle is back, alive and well in the heart of 2019. And we have to say, we’re quite the fans.

6. Glitter Roots

If you’re the girl who loves to wear her hair down but wants 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.

7. Twisted Messy Bun

If you’re looking for easy concert hairstyles, think about a boho chic style. This super simple twisted bun look adds some texture to your hair, while also getting your hair off your neck.

8. Messy Low Pony

Keep the ends kinda-sorta rough for a tougher feel.

Swoop your hair back and secure it with a hair tie. For a nice added detail, take a small section of hair and wrap it around the 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. Mist the finished look with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Texture Hold Level 1 to lock the style in place. This is one of our favorite easy concert hairstyles!
