Festival Fun: Festival Hair Ideas for 2015

Are you heading to a festival this summer and debating what to do with your hair whilst you are there? Whilst we all love a good festival, they can often be a nightmare when trying to keep your hair in good shape. No showers and sleeping in a tent? Unless you’re extremely lucky, your hair is never going to look perfect without a bit of help.

From beach waves to low maintenance braids, we have put together a guide to a selection of festival hairstyles that we hope will inspire you in the upcoming months.

Boho beach waves

This hairstyle is perfect for doing the day that you go to the festival; as you probably want have the heat appliances to do it once you are there. For those who are going to day festivals, this is ideal for you as you probably have more time to prepare. It looks good, and it will leave you looking and feeling fabulous.

Make it extra pretty by accessorising with a colourful flowery crown or a head chain hair piece. These are all staple festival hair accessories – and are incredibly easy to buy!

 Music festival plait

This is perfect for keeping your hair out of your face during a long day at a festival. It’s extremely easy to do – so it won’t take too long to master or waste too much time doing it. We love plaits here at KSL, as they allow your hair to look chic and cute but with minimal effort.

If you struggle with the plait, get someone to help you put it in – it’s not always easy without a mirror!

Messy Bun

Who doesn’t like a messy bun? They are pretty easy to do, and they look really good! It will also keep your hair out of your face – especially if you are going to be doing a lot of dancing.

This hairstyle actually works better if your hair isn’t newly washed, so it’s perfect for trying out on the second or third day of the festival. As your hair starts to feel a little grimy, the messy bun will hide this from everyone.


Did you find these hairstyle tips helpful? We suggest practising them before hitting your music festivals – it’ll make things a lot easier for you!

Is your hair too thin to try out some of these hairstyles? Have you ever considered getting hair extensions? KSL specialises in hair extensions and hair loss in Glasgow. Hair extensions can be the perfect solution for making your hair look a lot thicker so that you can try out different styles.
