Best Hairstyles For Festivals This Summer

Cicely McFarlane May 7, 2022

Deciding on what to wear and what look to go for to enjoy a festival that you’ve been counting down the months, days, and minutes to is exciting.

Of course, depending on what festival you are going to, the vibe you want to go for, and the overall look you want to achieve, fashion and hairstyles can be very individual and particular.

However, below are five of the simplest, yet cutest, festival looks to achieve.

These are predominantly for medium to longer hair. However, if you have short hair, you can attempt to achieve a similar look to these below.

Plaited Bunch

To achieve this look you should have your hair down and then separate the front two sections that you wish to braid.

You can either French plait or Dutch braid your hair towards the middle of your head. When you have reached the middle, instead of continuing the braid all the way down, you bunch off your hair to almost create two little bunches at the top of your head.

This is then complemented by the rest of your hair being down. You can then curl the ends of these bunches and the rest of your hair if you wish to create a fun yet practical look for a festival.

Tight Pony or Bun

If you’re going to a festival sometimes you can’t beat a simplistic look.

This will just include scraping your hair back and using hairspray to create a high ponytail, or putting it into a bun so you don’t have to try to deal with it the rest of the day.

Sometimes the more simple the look, the better the outcome. Just remember to use a comb to tightly put your hair back without any bumps. This is so you can get an overall sleek look effectively and efficiently.

Dutch Braids

Two Dutch braids can be a classic festival look and a very easy one to achieve.

If you can French plait, this is the same type of style but, instead of placing the three parts over one another, you place them under so the plait is more lifted.

This can be a cute and easy hairstyle. If you then pull the Dutch plaits out, they don’t have to be thin. They can be full and voluminous which can match a festival vibe very well.

Space Buns

Space buns are an old classic which will not disappoint at a festival.

You can tightly pull your hair back and then put the rest into two buns at the top of your head to create a cute style.

To go further, you could plait the front parts of your hair and then place the rest into a bun if you wish to do so.

Single Plait Half Up Half down

Instead of just a half up half down style, if you plait directly where your middle parting would be – in the centre of your head – you could form a simple yet very pretty hairstyle. The one plait then goes into the half up style, with the rest of your hair still down to do with as you wish.
