Long before it was popular at places like Paris Fashion Week, messy hair had a home a music festivals. The summer festival vibe is artfully grungy and basically bohemian and your hair should reflect that! Moreover, if you are going to be dancing, bobbing your head up and down and generally rocking out, it is much easier to keep a messy style, well, messy than to keep a perfect style, well perfect.
We spotted these two festival mavens at Wilderness Festival at Cornbury Park. Note that both girls have carefully mussed hair! Follow these three tips to get the same look!
1. Both girls started with soft waves, the halfway point between curls and straight. If your hair has the tendency to curl because of humidity, this style is easier to maintain than straight hair. If your hair tends to go straight, this style is easier to maintain than curls.
2. Next, both girls used hairspray to both hold the look and get some volume. You can start by teasing your hair. The girl on the left went with a half-up do while the girl on the right did a ponytail.
3. Both of them let pieces frame their face... which achieved a romantic look as well as pre-empting the problem of hair falling out of a ponytail.
And there you have it-- hair fit for a festival!
