Top 5 Festival Hairstyles
Festival season is in full-swing, which means it’s time for some amazing shows, celebrity sightings, and our favorite – festival fashion. But the perfect festival outfit is nothing without a complementary hairstyle. Get creative with your look and flaunt one of this year’s trending styles for a festival getup no one will forget. We’ve rounded up our favorite hair looks so that you can find some inspiration for this year’s circuit. Try one or rock them all – no matter what, you’ll be rocking an on-trend and Instagram-ready look that’s versatile enough to go from the dancefloor to the campground in style.
Braids are a bohemian staple, but there are endless ways to style them. Prefer to keep your hair down? Weave a few asymmetrical mini braids into tousled hair for a look that’s eclectic and effortless, à la Grace Elizabeth’s Tommy Hilfiger look.
For a stronger statement, ditch the flower crown and opt for classic Swedish crown braids. This romantic updo will help you stay cool in the summer heat while keeping your look flawlessly styled for days on end – perfect for camping out at multi-day events.
Been there, done that with most braided styles? Take it up a notch with a unique placement, like Kate Bosworth’s center-part braid from Coachella. A nontraditional plait functions as a unique accessory – and will definitely garner a ton of compliments
Combine the ease of a ponytail with a playful, quirky look by styling your hair in high pigtails. This versatile style is easy to make your own, whether you add a colorful accent with ‘80s-style scrunchies or go for a sleek, modern update like Cardi B’s Coachella look.
Blunt & Bright
Take your look from daytime to Day-Glo with neon wigs in blunt, cropped styles. A razor-sharp cut takes a bright hue from bold to unforgettable, and this style has been popping up everywhere from Instagram to Fashion Week. Plus, a wig means no need to style your hair – just put it on and hit the festival grounds. Whether you’re loving Gigi Hadid’s bob-with-bangs look from Jeremy Scott’s NYFW show or Kylie Jenner’s highlighter-yellow, lived-in crop, this style is a daring take on hair color that’s totally on-trend.
On the other side of the hair dye spectrum are soft, ethereal pastels. This look can be an easy first foray into colorful hair – add a few scattered strands of soft, delicate color for a dreamy, boho-inspired style like Sophie Turner, or take it to a bolder level with all-over color. Not sure if you want to keep this fairytale look beyond festival season? Use temporary hair dye to get the unicorn hair you’re dreaming of without any long-term commitment.
As the quirky cousin to pigtails, space buns add a zany, nostalgic feel to your festival look, but with a twist of retro-futurism that definitely makes a statement. Whether you go for a laid-back half-up, half-down look or a clean, sleek finish, this trend is ultra-flattering and not going anywhere. Not sure how to accessorize? Top your look off with metallic eyeshadow and a choker for a perfect finishing touch.
Of course, no festival look is complete without the perfect dress. At Ever-Pretty, we have an amazing selection of lightweight, colorful, and definitely festival-ready dresses to help you finish your look. Love a sheer layering piece and tassel details? Our Alisa Pan wrap dress is a flowy, boho-chic style made for festival season. Rock it with gladiator sandals and a crown braid for an even more eclectic outfit.
If you prefer a bolder color scheme and graceful silhouette, a crimson maxi with a delicate floral print will add some instant glamour to your festival style. Our off-the-shoulder Alisa Pan dress mixes bohemian style and classic elegance for an enviable summer ensemble. Pair this look with strappy sandals and oversized sunglasses for an effortless, gorgeous look.
If you love dramatic details and a short hemline, this bell sleeve Alisa Pan style is an amazing choice. The bold cage neckline and flirty silhouette make this style an unforgettable choice – top it off with space buns and ankle boots for a look that’s dramatic and totally on-trend.
