You know me, I love a good competition especially a creative one.
I also love a good festival and I have a number line up to visit this summer, including the lollibop & that of the wilderness, hence why this competition was perfect for me.
All I had to do was design the perfect festival hair style and Alice-Sara was more than willing to be my mini model.
For me good festival hair is a style that’s pretty but messy. It’s girly boho waves that don’t look like you tried to hard.
Another great aspect that makes perfect festival hair is the accessories used to dress it up. You should be able to use different accessories to create a number of different looks without actually having to restyle the hair at all. Don’t forget many festivals last an entire weekend and hair should look great each day your there.
This is what I’ve tried to demonstrate in my entry. I’ve created one simple style and dressed it up with different accessories to create a number of different looks to see you through an entire weekends festival.
The style: Pretty messy loose boho waves.
My daughter has very long hair so I brushed and separated the hair into sections with clips and grips. I then used heated tongs to curl the hair doing small sections at a time until the entire head was complete.
Alice-Sara has beautiful thick hair so I took some of the hair from the back and pinned this slightly higher as to create a waterfall effect.
I then used small purple flowers attached to twisty wire and placed randomly within the hair.
Lastly I used a flower and ribbon head piece to give it a real enchanted boho pixie effect and of course a pretty dress and pair of pixie wings to match.
Note… This style is perfect for younger festival goers, yet drop the outfit and you also have the perfect festival hair regardless of age.
As you can tell from the photos a bit of face paint, glitter and a few gems gives the look a really funky boho look.
Now as promised, without having to restyle the hair I created some other festival looks with the use of accessories alone.
By removing the flower headpiece and those pretty flowers placed randomly within the hair, I then replaced with a sparkly scarf tired around the middle of the head. Now you have yourself a really cool relaxed hippy chick look.
Then by removing the scarf and adding a cute butterfly headpiece you get this relaxed boho festival look…
It’s easy to dress your festival hair up to take it from day to night, why not dress your curls ready for a masked ball.
Or add a flashing light hair clip to the front of your hair, your guaranteed not to be missed
Now how to create the look. Curl hair before arriving at you destination even if camping your not going to find a plug socket at a festival. There are many products you can use but how about trying the new Schwarzopf Osis range.
Wash hair the day before, curls take better when hair hasn’t just been washed. For perfect boho curls work in some Osis Curl me soft £11.05 then get curling with some heated tongs. This will give fantastic curl definition without stuffiness.
Once complete use some Osis Dust it £12.95 worked into hands and applied to the ends of the hair to creat that perfect messy vibe with a non-greasy finish. Your curls will look beautiful and shimmering gorgeous.
Just to make sure the whole thing remains in place, spray some Osis formation freeze £9.25 over your bouncy boho curls for maximum hold and effect.
