8 festival hair and beauty trends to rock this year

We love Summer festivals because they're the perfect reason to get glammed up and try a new look. Here are some of our favourites to rock in festival season!

1. Spaced out

They're still cute af and pretty practical too, making them the perfect festival 'do. Just twist and go!

2. It's all braidy, baby

Two day hair can be annoying, right? Not at a festival! Layer up dry shampoo to keep it fresh and then pop it loads of salt spray or texturising powder to give your locks some serious oopmh. Finally, French, fishtail or Dutch braid your tresses into whatever style you like. We love angel braids, the classic pigtail plaits and fishtails the best! Sephora stock the awesome Sachajuan Hair Paste which is great for adding texture so why not pick some up with your 10% discount next time you're instore.

3. Golden glow

Make sure that you're ready for the sunshine with your own (cheated!) tan. Before your big day out, apply a self-tanner such as the Sephora gradual face self-tanning water for a couple of nights and you'll be glowing in no time!

4. Colour pop

Feelin' brave? Why not add a pop of coloured eyeliner or some bright eyeshadow under your lower lashes for festival style with some serious impact. Stunning! Try the Sephora collection colourful shadow and liner collection in the shade 'My boyfriend's jeans'. It's waterproof too!

5. Sparkle and shine

Literally the one time of year where more glitter is better. Just be prepared to find glitter EVERYWHERE for the next 6 months.

6. Light and bright

Highlighted and illuminated skin is the perfect canvas for any festival-inspired beauty tutorial. Or, wear your skin with just a light base like the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector for an easy, breezy, low-maintenance look!

7. Red and ready

A bright red lip could be your go-to for festival beauty if you're not into glitter and temporary tattoos! Try a stain for easy application and top ups like the Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain.

8. Gems, gems, gems

Add 3D gems to your festival beauty kit and you'll be sure to stand out from the crowd. Make sure you have a good cleanser or pack of face wipes handy to ensure all of the glue is taken off your skin at the end of the day though!

Don't forget that you can use your UNiDAYS and Sephora in-store online and discount to save yourself some serious dollar on all of these festival necessities. Happy shopping (and partying)!
