Festival Season is upon us!

While festival-goers are first and foremost buzzing about the music lineup, the hype over hairstyles and attire is just as real. Celebrities and social media influencers set the bar high with their creative inspiration, so everyone wants to join in and look the part.

While you’re searching the internet for what to wear to the event, try not to overlook the hair preparation. Music festivals are a time to experiment with hairstyles that wouldn’t normally function in the real world.

This is the year to stand out with your originality and get some double tap-worthy looks.

What goes into planning the perfect festival hairstyle?

  1. Your look should be exclusive. It’s time you set yourself apart from everyone else.
  2. Your festival hairstyle should be practical. If you’re out dancing all day and night, you’ll want to choose a hairstyle that will remain intact.
  3. Your style should make you feel confident.

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with these 7 Festival Hairstyles!

Rainbow Hair

The more colors, the merrier. We suggest semi-permanent hair colors for this unicorn look, unless you’re planning on rocking those vibrant colors at the office the following week.

Double Dutch Braids

These color-accented braids have been given a boho makeover to create a look that screams festival babe. With this low-maintenance style, you won’t have to stress about finding a new look for each day of the festival. The tight twists and braids stay in all weekend, which means you won’t have to wash or fuss with your hair. And, it should survive hot, dry, or rainy conditions.

Glitter Roots

Glitter is essential at festivals. The best way to get that super-fine shimmer to stick to your roots, is to paint it on with a thick makeup brush. To create the shimmer, mix glitter with your favorite hair gel.

Top Knot

If you want your outfit to get all the attention, pull your hair up in a stylish high bun and call it a day. No one said basic was a bad thing.

Flower Child

Flower crowns are a classic, but if they’re not your thing, you can totally take a few flower petals and add them to your hair for a simple, yet elegant look.

Braids and Waves

A fishtail braid with smaller braids and waves could amp up your look. This fishtail accent braid will keep your hair out of your face. The small braids and loose waves will help form an overall textured look.

Upside-Down Braided Space Buns

Space buns will take your festival hair to another planet. 90's fashion has made a complete comeback. It only makes sense that Miley Cyrus's re-popularized space buns did too. This style gets hair up off your neck so you can enjoy the party.
