Festival season – the best festival hairstyles uncovered

Festival season – the best festival hairstyles uncovered

Festival season is well and truly upon us – with wellies, face paint and tents at the ready. But, just because you’re spending a long weekend with no access to hot water or a hair straightener, doesn’t mean that your hair has to look anything less than fabulous. Join us as we uncover the best festival hairstyles – comes rain, shine or mud.

Boho braids and plaits

Braids are a festival staple, keeping your hair in place and off of your face during the wettest and hottest of festival weekends. Modernise your look by trying out double dutch braids, a messy plait or a full-on fishtail. And, keep it all in place with some extra strength hairspray – at Mack Hair and Beauty we like Redken’s new Triple Pure 32 – extra hold without the crunch.

Not yet mastered plaiting your own hair? Book yourself in for a festival hairstyle up-do, and we’ll create a stunning braid that will see the weekend through.

Big hair and tumbling waves

Embracing your natural (and not-so-natural) curls and waves is big this festival season – which is great for the lack-of-plug situation. For the natural curlies among you, use a moisturising leave-in conditioner and embrace the cold festival showers to tone down the frizz. For you straight haired girlies, sleep in your day#1 braid to embrace the day#2 waves that follow.

Bold colours and pastel shades

Festivals are the best opportunity to experiment with your hair colour – especially if you’re going bold. Whether you want to rock a dusty pink, icy blue or platinum blonde – we have the hair colour for you.

Simply pop into the salon for a colour consultation and book yourself in the week before you set off.

Pro festival hairstyle tip: add a PH bonder to your hair colouring treatment to protect your hair colour from the sun, fun, rain and mud over the weekend.

Flowers, hats and gems

Hair accessories are a great way to quickly style your hair so that you can spend less time getting ready and more time partying. From flower crowns and hair gems to sun visors and hair slides – they’re all the rage and readily available. Just don’t forget to pack the Bobbi pins.

Fuss-free festival hairstyles

And, if you want to be totally hair-care free on your festival weekend, forget about your locks by popping your hair into a messy bun, tieing it up into a silk scarf or booking yourself in for a pre-festival Nanokeratin Smoothing Treatment – giving you a 12-week blow dry.

And when it’s all over, don’t forget to treat your hair to professional conditioning treatment, such as Heatcure, to restore moisture levels, oils and softness.
