Whether you’re heading to Chilfest, Cool Britannia or Classic Ibiza at Hatfield House, planning festival hair is high on the agenda for many festival-goers. However, if you’re stuck for festival hair ideas, OPEN Hairdressing Hemel Hempstead stylist Grace Lilie has been practising some looks in preparation for summer. Grace is known for her exceptional colour skills, but she also enjoys expressing her creativity with hair in other ways. And how does she do this? Two words: with accessories.
Festivals are a fantastic opportunity to experiment with hair. It’s a chance for you to enjoy yourself and choose a style that you wouldn’t normally wear on a day-to-day basis. Festival hair accessories really do put the ‘fun’ into functional. Accessories are also great features if you find yourself having to rush to see your favourite band in time. Plus, you can still create a memorable, photo-ready look with minimal effort.
So, without further ado, here are a few beautiful, festival-inspired styles that Grace created on our salon floor. However, if you would like to book an appointment with Grace, give OPEN Hairdressing a call on 01442 262673 or email the salon directly. Book before spaces go!
Make Way for Waves
Wavy hair just exudes the feeling of a lazy, hazy summer days. Paired with statement hairclips, this a look that can be styled in a matter of moments. It can also be a look that stays for days if treated with the right products.
Festivals aren’t always about being big and bold with your hair. Sometimes, pretty and feminine accessories might be a better choice for you. You can buy a whole variety of accessories for a small price nowadays. However, Grace will be on hand to help you choose the right hair accessories for you and the event itself. So bring along anything and everything you have – you might end up surprising yourself!
Mix it Up!
Braided hair is a popular choice for many festival lovers. This is due to the fact that it is a low-maintenance style but still looks great! Embedding fabric or scarves into your festival hair gives your look the ultimate bohemian vibe. Rummage through your wardrobe, charity shops and sale racks and Grace can literally tie your whole look together.
