Festival Hairstyles

Having just been to a music festival, I thought I would give you some ideas for what hairstyles are suited for festivals!
For the first day or two I found my hair was fine to be left down and lose and usual. However by day three my hair began to feel a little bit greasy and even with some dry shampoo it felt unclean and nasty. I found that braiding hair is a good way to have hair out the way but still look nice. There is an added bonus when you are at a festival that you can pretty much braid as badly and messily as you want and it will still look alright. Any sort of braided style will work but you will probably want to keep the braid simple so it requires only a few hair elastics and hair pins making it easier to do when your sat in a tent with only a small hand mirror. Here are some braided suggestions:

Simple Dutch Braid
Braided Headband
Crown Braid
"Katniss" style side braid
Its also nice to add in an extra flower clip or something to give the style an added festival vibe. I have guides to how to do some of these styles, otherwise I will link helpful youtube videos for you to watch. All of these are very easy though!
Another good thing to try at festivals is headbands and headscarves. Not only do they hide your greasy hair but they look cute and quite boho:
flower headband
headscarf (i wore this a lot)
When you get fed up of having to braid your hair every morning or if your hair become just to horrible to leave down there are a few things you can do. Obviously whack out the dry shampoo (if its really bad - my opinions on dry shampoo) but also tie it back to get it out of the way. Here are a few things to try:

High Pony-tail (simple but effective)
messy bun / top knot (i kept it in place with only 2 long pins!)
Anyway, the most important thing to remember is that everyone's hair is horrible and you can pretty much do whatever you like and no-one will care!! Its the best!
