Festival season is here and if you are anything like us you’ll be super excited at all the awesome festival hairstyles we are going to see. We’ve put together our list of 2018’s top festival hair ideas to help get you inspired for some summer fun. These easy festival hair ideas are perfect for looking chic whilst keeping maintenance low so you can focus on good times and music – not dry shampoo and hair care.
Perfect for first day festival hair. Use messy beach waves to add volume together in an effortless look thats bound to draw attention. You can blow dry your hair into loose curls or even use a curling iron. This style is really versatile, it can look gorgeous on long hair or add a quirky style to short hair depending on how how loose the waves are. Pair it with a flower crown for effortless festival glamour or add some pastel colours in for hair that everyone will envy.
You want your festival hair to be two things: attractive, and low maintenance. Plaits might be the queen of effortless festival style. Go big and messy with a fishtail braid, keep it cool with a set of double dutch braids, mix it up with a braided updo hairstyle or keep it classic with an elegant french braid. With so much variety you can change it up every day without having to worry about spending forever on hair maintenance – It’s no wonder braid hairstyles are so popular on the festival scene this year!
A hot trend on the music scene right now, the idea for a half up half down hairstyle is just that – half your hair goes up, whether in a braid, a messy bun or a ponytail and half your hair goes down. It adds an intentionally devil may care messy look to your arsenal that doesn’t care whether you are fresh on the field or you are on festival day 3. Add some hair accessories, perhaps some bobby pins and you’ll have mastered the “minimum effort” festival style.
Space buns are super hot right now. With so many celebrities sporting this Star Wars inspired look you can bet space buns will be a festival favourite in 2018. A great choice for a half up half down style, leave a few loose strands for a messy look and you can rock out without worrying about your hair going awry. Space bun hairstyles are especially good with mid length hair but still look super cute with both shorter and longer locks – go versatility!
If you want to really stand out, this sharp and edgy style is sure to get noticed. By parting your hair down the center and separating each half with a 2 inch section of hair in a tight braid this quick and easy hairstyle will look modern, bold and chic whilst only taking 10 minutes to set up! For added flair add some glitter or plan ahead with a pastel coloured temporary dye for a show stopping look.
