Top Festival Style For Every Hair Length

Lidia Patrizia, Stylist, Blue Tit Brixton, Reveals Top Festival Style For Every Hair Length


When it comes to festivals, there are no boundaries for long hair. This S/S17, one of the main trends for festival hair is the Glitter Bun. This creative and quirky look suits every hair colour imaginable, and ensures that you stand out from the crowd.

To create
1. Part the hair straight down the middle and secure each section into high ponytails with a clear hair band.

2. Take the first ponytail and begin to wrap the length of the hair around the hair band. Create the size of bun that you envisioned and secure tightly with hairpins.

3. Take the second ponytail and repeat the process, aiming to make the bun the same size as the first one.

4. Brush hair oil along the parting and sprinkle the glitter over the oil.


In continuation from last season's obsession with curls, the S/S17 shows were big on texture and waves. Beachy, power curls, tousled, or Hollywood glam, one of the best hair lengths to create the perfect curl is mid-length. My favourite curl for festival season is the disco curl as it is easy to create, holds really well, and looks effortlessly cool.

To create 1. Using hair straighteners begin to feed the hair into the plate in a S' shape.

2. Press the plates together to create heat and tension, which will set the hair in the S' shape.

3. Continue to do this throughout the head in sections until all of the hair has been curled.

4. Leave the hair as it is for an intense wave, or brush through the hair with a soft brush to break up the waves for a much softer look.


The perfect way to disguise dirty, greasy, festival hair, braids have been a huge trend, both on and off the catwalk, and their versatility and ability to transform a look means their popularity shows no sign of disappearing. A Dutch Braid is so easy to recreate and is the perfect choice for short hair. A huge bonus is that braids work better in hair that hasn't been washed, making them this summer's number-one festival style.

To create
1. Section the hair into two sections straight through the middle parting.

2. Take a diagonal section at the front, before splitting that section into three.

3. As this is a Dutch braid, each section is taken under the middle section instead of over (like a French braid).

4. Start by holding one section in one hand, and the other two sections in the other hand.

5. Using your right hand, place one of the side sections under the middle section in to your other hand.

6. Then using your left hand, place the other side section underneath the middle section and place into your right hand.

7. Repeat until all sections of the hair have been taken into the braid.

8. Use the same process for the second braid.
