Guest post: Festival Favourites!

Today's guest post is from Kelly (Hair advice and all things nice), who has some hair styling tips to keep you looking festival fabulous this summer:Link

That time of year is fast approaching, and rather than shoving your hair under a hat and not attempting to do anything too adventurous get festival fabulous!

Glastonbury is the next biggie, and I’m really jealous of all you lucky ladies and gents going, here are a few handy tips to keep you looking great rather than a state.

  • Keep it simple – remember you are in a field and electricity is reserved for VIP’s only. Use Goody Spin Pins (I wrote about them on my blog) to create simple bun styles that takes minutes.

  • Accessorize! – Use anything you fancy to dress your hair up, flowers, scarves, even jewellery, an old necklace looks great weaved through plaits.
  • Avoid products – this might sound a bit of a bizarre one, but avoid weighing your hair (and bag!) down by using too much product when styling your hair. It’ll help keep your hair fresher for longer and avoid it getting too greasy. There is of course one product that is a must for festivals. Dry shampoo. Grab a mini tin to travel light.
  • Plait & Twist – just before you rest your head on your blow up pillow surrounded by thousands of other revellers plait your hair or twist and secure with a hairband. You’ll wake up with festival ready locks.
So if you are going to a festival these year, have fun, stay safe and most of all - give good hair!

  2. charmed-chick - It really is, perfect for a festival :) x

  3. I completely agree with all those points especially plaiting your hair at night time! In a way I love how you can get away with just waking up with your wavy hair and putting a flower in it and not looking under done

  4. Sparkles - Glad you agree :) Plaiting hair is such a good idea for festivals. I used to do it when I was younger and it's such an easy heat free way to get waves x

  5. Great tips from Kelly (love her blog). That orange headband is gorgeous. Definitely agree with her on avoiding products, festivals are definitely a time to keep it simple! x

  6. LilyLipstick - Glad you like the tips :) She's inspired me to start accessorizing my hair this summer x
