Festival Hair Styles & Ideas


Festival Hair Ideas from Gavin Ashley Hairdressing in Bury St Edmunds

The festival season is upon us and if you’re heading off see your favourite bands this summer, check our our festival-inspired hairstyles before you go! Let the team at Gavin Ashley Hairdressing guide you through the creative and whimsical journey of the festival hairstyle!

Messy Plaits & Top Knots for Music Festivals

Braids are perhaps the look when it comes to looking on-trend for summer festivals.  They can work on short, mid-length and long hair.  Add micro-plaits to a short hairstyle, two cute pigtails for medium-length hair and a side braid for longer hair.   Start your morning off by tying your hair into a firm plait which can work its way loose as day morphs into night.  Or maybe a couple of cute top knots are the perfect look for you!

Long & Mid-Length Boho Hairstyles for Festivals

Tumbling waves are the ultimate hair style when it comes to music festivals.  Your curls will need to look relaxed and effortless to get that music festival vibe.  If you have straight hair, consider wearing a centre parting and add a pretty circlet of flowers for a 1970s vibe!

Summer Festival Hair Accessories

After two days of dancing your hair may be looking a little flat and, dare we say it….greasy!  This is where a flowery head-dress or floppy hat can come in handy.    Try weaving some strands of hair into your flowery hair accessory to give it some interest and make it look less flat.  If all else fails, make sure you have a can of dry shampoo which can give your hair a new lease of life and added volume.
