Festival hair and beauty tips…

Avoiding lipstick, using hair gel to keep your glitter on and hiding greasy hair with a funky wig are just some of the expert hair and beauty tips to get you through festival season.

We have created a list of what you need to prepare yourself for the annual music fests.

They include things like getting a pre-festival blow dry, braiding your locks if you have high-maintenance hair and using creamy makeup products.

Avoid lipstick…

Keep your lips fairly low maintenance. When you’re away from your tent watching bands all day, your access to mirrors is limited. If you apply a lot of lipstick this will only cause issues, so instead, opt for a moisturising lip balm that will keep your lips fuss-free, yet hydrated.

Get a pre-festival blow dry…

Take a trip to the salon the day before your festival for a blow dry. This will not only leave your hair feeling fresh but it’ll keep the grease at bay too.

On the days in between your next hair wash, use a good dry shampoo to absorb oil, give body and keep your hair smelling pleasant.

Use hair gel to keep your glitter on…

The boozy weekends at festivals will no doubt leave your eyes feeling and looking a little tired. Instead of covering them up with concealer, opt for a bit of glitter.

Hide greasy hair with a funky wig… Instead of endlessly spraying dry shampoo on your head towards the end of the festival, why not try something different? Get a fun party wig and decorate it with a headband or accessory to make a statement this festival season.

Pack a hand sanitizer…

The most important festival essential is of course a hand sanitizer. As most festivals have only have portaloo’s with no taps, pack a small one that you can carry around in your bag at all times.

Take sunglasses…

Sunglasses are your BFF at festivals. They are great to wear around the campsite if you haven’t put your makeup on yet, and they make a perfect accessory to go with your festival attire.

Pre-braid your locks…

If your have extensions, or your hair is fairly high-maintenance, braid it into two French plaits before you go to the festival. Braids are a great for hiding grease and the style will also stop your hair from getting in the way of your face. For an ultra cool look, try braiding ribbons or coloured pieces of hair extensions into your hair. When you’re at the festival, another great trick is to add glitter to your braids by using gel and then setting with hairspray.

Waterproof your face…

The British weather is unpredictable, so it’s always important to be prepared for rain. As well as packing a raincoat, make sure you also bring waterproof makeup as well. Opt for a silicone-based waterproof mascara, as this will ensure the colour doesn’t smudge or run.

Use creamy makeup products…

Choose products with a light, breathable base as this will sit comfortably on your face for a day and night of dancing. Creamy products are the best for festivals as they give you buildable coverage, which you can apply using just your fingers.

Bring sun protection…

As the British summer time is incredibly unpredictable, the sun may be out and it could be strong. Always pack sun protection including sun creams and a hat (if you’re fair), because nobody wants to wake up with sunburn or heat stroke.
