8 festival hair and beauty trends to rock this year

Festival season is kicking off! So much style, amazing artists performing, incredible weather, sunset Instagram pics, we could go on... Get those festi-cool vibes going with some of the hottest hair and beauty trends for this year.

1. Spaced out

There's no doubt that space buns are a huge trend this year but they're 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 oomph. 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!

3. Golden glow

Make sure that you're ready for the sunshine with your own (cheated!) tan. Before your big day out, apply a gradual self-tanner like this St Tropez one 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. This 3ina blue Kajal is stunning!

5. Sparkle and shine

We know that glitter, stars and sparkles are totally in at the moment but when it comes to festival season, this trend is going to be amped up to the max!

6. Light and bright

Highlighted and illuminated skin is the perfect canvas for any festival-inspired beauty tutorial. We'd just love Amanda Seyfried's skin here plz. How flawless? The NARS Sun Wash bronzer is the perfect base for illuminated skin.

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. This Winky Lux lipstick is such a bright and bold colour.

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!
