how to style hair at festivals

Inspired by Zoe’s recent Festival Hair Diaries I thought I’d share some of my festival hair looks and talk you through some of my festival hair tips.

Festival hair is always tricky, no matter if you stay in a hotel, glamp or in a tent - Festivals are not hair friendly.


If you only take one hair product to a festival then make sure it’s a can of Batiste. Especially a mini one as they are super tiny and enough product to see you through a weekend.

Pre festival give your hair a deep cleanse using a build up removing shampoo to make sure your hair is extra clean for the next few days.

I always feel second day hair styles much better and has a little more grit to it. If you wanted to really up the festival hair stakes then bring some hair chalk. Bare in mind that you’ll have coloured hair for the next few days but they are a fun addition to a festival hairstyle

The Styles

Crown Braids, Topknots, Fishtail’s and more. Experiment and play with a few hairstyles prior to going so you have a few different looks to try out when you are there!


Im all about hair accessories at festivals. I love floral crowns, fedora’s, pretty clips and ears. There are so many different accessories out their that are perfect for hiding festival hair and distracting from the grease. Always take a good supply of hair clips and hair bands as your bound to loose them along the way.


  1. Dry shampoo is definitely a must for festivals! Lovely pictures as always x

  2. You have great tips. Hair accessories and a dry shampoo like batiste would be essentials for me as well :)

  3. Everyone has been wearing flower accessories in their hair lately, but I can never find the perfect one!

  4. Cute ideas! I usually stick to plaits or a hat but will deffo try these styles!

  16. How to restore a broken relationship and marriage

    My name is Wendy Streeter from the United States of America and am here to share a testimony i would please want you to read careful. I was married for seventeen years until misfortune came in. My husband and i were living happily with our children and enjoyed the company of each other. Our eldest daughter eloped with her boyfriend and this cost my husband his job because he could no longer concentrate on his job and this almost tore our home apart. My husband lost his job and we were living on the little income i was making from my cabbage. This really tormented our home cos my husband loves her more than our other kids. I tried all i could do to make my husband happy even when i wasn't happy. This happened for sometime and he had cardiac arrest. We spent virtually all the money we had and still the condition did not improve. I was left with no choice than to sell the stuffs in our house, I was able to realise some money which was spent on his medical bills. I did this for a while until we had no money on us again. We came home and was hoping he could get better. He continued like that for some months and we decided to seek for solution else where. I went online where i met many self acclaimed doctors and spell casters but none could help. I then came across this particular caster whose testimonies i have read. His name is Dr.Brave he promised to help and he did in a way i find very surprising to explain. He told me that he would cast some spells to make my daughter come back and to get my husband his job back. It was like an impossible task. But with the help and intervention of this prophet of GOD, my daughter came back home and saw her dad was sick and she cried and asked for forgiveness. My husband after a week became whole again and another spell was cast to get him his job back. Like a dream it happened. My daughter is back home and my loving husband is well again and now has his job back. So good people of the world i want you to help me in saying a big thank you to Dr.Brave for his intervention. This is one Dr i will seriously recommend for anyone with issues of such nature or any other problem. Simply contact him on his email via,or kindly visit he website .

  17. Lovely looks! Love the fishtail plait with the floral crown.
    And of course love the add of pink in your hair.


  18. I love beachy waves for festivals because it also looks good when you put your hair up :) x

  19. Love the subtle streaks of pink!

  20. Best tips! I've never been to a festival (I'm probably too young to go to ANY) but I think these hairstyles could definitely work on an every day basis. I think the pink hair chalk REALLY suits you. :)
