With festival and concert season almost in full swing, there are so many outfits and hairstyles to start planning! Whether you’re not the most skilled at creating festival-chic hairstyles or complex braiding is your fave sport, we’ve got two festival hair ideas for you to consider. Our first style is easy so anyone can give it a go! Our second fave is a little more complex, so practice your braiding or find a skilled friend! Whichever you choose, both are great styles to try at your next festival appearance.
Two Festival Hair Ideas You Need to Try
Top Knot Half-Up, Half-Down
You can never go wrong with a top knot style. This look is effortless and cool girl chic, especially for a festival where you’ll be dancing and in the sun all day. The style itself is easy to create, but there are ways to spice it up. For extra hold, we recommend you start by making a half-up, half-down ponytail and secure it with an elastic. Once you have that style, wrap your ponytail around to create a bun and use bobby pins to hold down the style. Use your fingers to pick at the bun and loosen it for a more worn-in feel.
To add more flair to your style, curl the hair you left down. Protect your hair pre-styling with some heat protectant. Dove Style+Care Smooth And Shine Heat Protection Spray is a great and highly affordable option. Give your loose curls extra texture and a festival vibe by spraying it with Bed Head by TIGI Queen Beach Salt Infused Texture Spray.
Side Braid with Charms
Switch things up and go with a side Dutch braid. This look is simple and adds a pop of texture and style while still being able to keep your hair down. Want to add even more flair? Attach some braid charms all down your Dutch braid for some fun accessories that will instantly play up a boho festival aesthetic.
Add some shine to your look as the perfect finishing touch. Just add a small dollop of Suave Professionals Sleek Anti-Frizz Smooth & Shine Cream to your style for shine and frizz-taming action.
