Quit your hair hang-ups and get into the festival spirit with this day-by-day plan that ensures your hair never falls flat...
DAY 1 / PRO TIP - START WITH YOUR HAIR DOWN AND WORK YOUR WAY UP
First thing’s first… make the most of your clean hair. Pack your first punch with simple boho-chic. Textured, tousled waves are a festival favourite and bound to get you noticed. Your waves should look as effortless as possible and resemble a scrunch more than a curl. Right now we’re inspired by 90’s grunge glamour – it’s the ultimate festival accessory! Use Hershesons Curling Tong for longer-lasting waves.
DAY 2 / PRO TIP - BOHO BRAIDS ARE A GREAT WAY TO KEEP REBELLIOUS HAIR TAMED. PLAIT AS YOU WISH FOLLOWING NO RULES
Can’t wait to scrape-back unwashed hair? Combat the first signs of grease with no shower in sight. The solution = BAD ASS BRAIDS Braids are a cornerstone in festival fashion and a great distraction from dirty roots! They’re proven to work best in day-old hair so whether you favour a chunky fishtail or random mini braids get inspired by the detailed twists on the runway and plait / twist / pin your way to perfection. Choose your accessories wisely - you don't want to be caught without a grip or a band.
DAY 3 / PRO TIP - IF YOU ONLY TAKE ONE PRODUCT WITH YOU, MAKE SURE IT'S A QUICK-FIX DRY SHAMPOO.
It’s day three of the festival and your hair is starting to surrender but you can still regain some of that ‘Coachella cool’ with some super smart styling. To begin revive it with a ton of sweet-smelling dry shampoo then get it out of your face ASAP! Bung it up into a knot/ponytail hybrid keeping things loose and undone. After days of drinking and dancing you need an effortlessly cool style that won’t let you down but luckily the build up of product from the last two days will provide you with the ideal texture – all you have to do is pile it high and knot! Gently detangle or tease some texture with The Mixed Bristle Oval Cushion Brush.
