Festival Hair

May 31, 2019

Festival Hair

Her jaw dropped and the lip quivered. I’d only suggested to my daughter that we thought we’d come to Wilderness, one of the many festivals on her summer calendar. “We could meet up!” I said, only half joking and wondering if she’d say, “What a great idea dad, you can meet my friends too!” But it was clear that my ‘getting down wiv da yoof’ on her patch was simply too distressing for her. Oh well, maybe later in life.
 
Whilst spending the weekend in a clammy tent with no clean clothes or showers, perfectly executed festival hair may seem impossible. However, with these super summer ideas from the Michael Van Clarke team you can create the must-have styles within minutes. From ethereal plaits to messy up-dos, and all out boho beach waves, you’ll be looking festival chic and ready to party.

Use 3’’’More Inches LifeSaver Pre-wash Treatment before you go, washing with the appropriate 3’’’More inches Cashmere Protein Shampoo and Conditioner to protect your hair and leave it gorgeously glossy all festival long. Or finish with a good soaking of 3’’’More Inches LifeSaver UV Spray and let it dry for a boho beach wave effect. This is a good base for any up-dos or plaits as the hair will have more body and grip. Slip a LifeSaver Prewash Treatment 100ml travel size in your festival kit bag for top ups mid way.


Feathers

You can fly straight into the summer festival season with these natural American Rooster feathers. Cleansed in 100% non-toxic detergent and dyed using organic, mineral based dye, each can be washed, curled, brushed, blow dried and straightened. They come in an array of colours from natural browns and fawns, to wild and bright blues and magenta. Ranging in length from 3-16 inches, the hand crafted extensions start at £25.00, last for up to 4 months and are entirely re-usable. So you can wear them at this summer’s festivals and have them re-inserted for that beautifully bohemian wedding you’re attending too.

 

Boho Beach Waves

A simple hat gives sun protection and is a stylish accessory. 3’’’More Inches LifeSaver UV Spray creates a great beach surf look of tousled waves, or create these by winding your hair around your fingers a few times with 3’’’More Inches Volumising Mousse applied. With a very small amount of effort you will be looking festival gorgeous and ready to party.
 

Floral Plaits

Plaits are perfect for the festival season and summer holidays too. Simply bring the hair over one shoulder and part into three, then take a small section of hair from the outside of one section and bring it over the top then under the other section, repeat this process on the other side, then work down your hair. Re-wild the hair with some local flowers and you’ll look like a true festival goddess.


The Messy Buns

For this new take on a traditional style, slightly dirty hair is helpful, so this is perfect for day three when you really are struggling with ideas for your newly formed mane. Add some 3’’’More Inches LifeSaver UV Spray for protection and texture. Secure two loose ponytails high up on the back of your head, (plaiting them upward optional) ruffle up with a wide-tooth comb to create some volume, then twist the ponytail around with your fingers and secure in place around the hair tie with hair pins. Give your head a quick spritz with 3’’’More Inches Holding Spray to keep the buns in place until the sun goes down and to ensure the style lasts as long as you can.

When returning home for the big clean, use 3’’’More Inches Exfoliating Scalp Treatment to cleanse, refresh and soothe followed by 3’’’More Inches Exfoliating Scalp Shampoo.
