Festival season is here and it’s the perfect time to be more creative and inventive with your hair looks. Festivals are fun and adventurous and so is festival hair! Think quirky, more intricate hair ups and left down styles with extreme volume and texture. Hair accessories are also more popular than ever, and can be incorporated into a number of hair looks to instantly transform your style, take it up a notch and give it that added festival edge. Below are a few of my favourite festival hair looks, which will be super on trend for 2022 festival season, and how to create them…
1. Wash your hair with Alterna My Hair. My Canvas. More To Love Bodifying Shampoo and Conditioner to give your hair a foundation of fullness, texture and movement
2. Apply Alterna Soaring High Volumizing Blowout Mist throughout your hair to prep it prior to blow-drying and to add lift at the root and further volume throughout your hair
3. Wave your hair with a 25mm curling iron. This thinner iron will help achieve the perfect ‘S shaped’ waves and working in small sections will give your hair added body. If you have a thinner hair type, you can also add some clip in extensions to this look to give your hair a fuller, more volumised finish.
4. Finish by scrunching Alterna My Hair. My Canvas, Any Way Texture Spray through your hair to give it added texture, as well as a soft hold
5. Complete the style by adding in a jewelled head vine to give your look added character.
1. As hair starts to get oily, a half up is the perfect choice for day two festival hair. Take a handy travel size dry shampoo in your bag, like Alterna My Hair. My Canvas Another Day Dry Shampoo, and mist this through your hair to absorb excess oils, whilst also providing volume and giving your hair softness
2. Alterna My Hair. My Canvas. Easy Does It Air Dry Balm should then be distributed throughout your hair to eliminate frizz, enhance the look of your waves and to help give your hair manageability before creating the braid
3. Working from the left, a section of your hair should be braided and stopped 3/4s of the way down the head and secured with a hair tie leaving a ponytail
4. A section of the ponytail can then be wrapped around your hair tie to give your hair an imperfectly perfect finish
5. Your braid should then be misted again with Alterna My Hair. My Canvas. Another Day Dry Shampoo and each section gently pulled out to give your braid added fullness.
SLEEK TOP KNOT
1. On day three, your hair will be oilier and starting to lack lustre and with that in mind, it’s a good idea to opt for a sleek, ‘wet look’ hairstyle. By applying Alterna My Hair. My Canvas. Shine On Defining Foam and brushing this through the front section of your hair, this will help enhance shine and give your hair smoothness
2. Your hair should then be pulled back and tied tightly into place in a ponytail at the top of the head
3. Mist your ponytail with Alterna My Hair. My Canvas. Another Day Dry Shampoo to give it added volume before wrapping the ponytail around into a bun and pinning into place
4. The look should be finished by spritzing through Alterna My Hair. My Canvas. City Slay Shielding Hairspray to banish any flyaways and to give your look added shine.
