Girls just wanna have…festival-ready hair. With rad festivals like Coachella and other festivals happening all year round, we want to look as amazing as possible. That’s where these hair hacks come in:
1. Plan Your Hairstyle In Advance
Festivals are a big deal for many. They give you the chance to go crazy with the hairstyles. Like yellow hair, kind of crazy. You might even end up appearing on a major magazine or website! Pull up your battle plans (i.e mood boards) from Pinterest and Instagram, show them to your hairstylist and get started.
2. Have A Hair Emergency Kit
(BYOEK) Bring Your Own Emergency Kit. See what I did there? BYOB…? No? Ok. Stash some hairpins, dry shampoo, hair clips, styling product and some hair ties into your bag. You don’t want any malfunctions, dry hair or dust to get in the way of you and your love for your favourite performer. Not today!
3. Wear Sunscreen On Your Hair
Yes. Sunscreen for hair is a thing. The sun’s UV rays can do a number on your hair and scalp. Exposure to excessive sun dries out your hair and scalp damaging the cuticles leading to rough, dull hair. Exposure to the sun can also fade or change your colour-treated hair while drying it out even more. Hair sunscreen provides a barrier between your hair and the sun. Most festivals happen in the open air. This means exposure to the elements like extreme sunlight. Spray some hair sunscreen and enjoy your festival the way you were meant to.
4. Pick Low-Maintenance Hairstyles
If you didn’t get a chance to plan your hairstyle in advance or you just couldn’t care less, go with fuss-free styles. Like braids or a weave. With wigs, you risk them flying off your head, yikes! Heck, wear a hat if you don’t feel like wearing any hairstyle. Hats are cool and make you stand out.
