13 Festival Hairstyle Ideas to Try 2021

Festivals are back, and they are the perfect excuse to experiment with your hair. Festivals and hair are two of our favourite things. So, we couldn’t resist dedicating a blog post to the coolest festival hairstyle ideas of 2021. We predict that this year more will be more after all festivals were cancelled last year. Therefore, expect extravagant accessories, sky-high updos and multicoloured locks. But don’t worry, if you prefer something subtle, we have included a mixture of bold and simplistic styles.

@Hair.spression have nailed the festival hair criteria with this funky spin on leopard print. However, this hairstyle may require the help of a hair professional. So make sure you pop into the salon before you head to the festival.

Clip Party

We are obsessed with influencer @sophiehannah and love scrolling through her Instagram profile for hair inspiration. Sophie is always experimenting with her hair and switching up her look. We love how she has layered multiple clips together for this look.

This braided ponytail, complete with a wrap-around chain. Is sure to have all eyes on you this festival season, for all the right reasons. @Chitabeseau, who created this style with the help of her friend @antestradahair, says two pairs of hands are better than one when it comes to this festival hairstyle. To avoid any hair mishaps, make sure you grab your bestie to help you.

Classic French Braid

A classic French braid is a festival hair staple. It is a great style for when the temperature heats up, and you need to keep your hair off your face. Plus, on day two or three of the festival, when your hair no longer feels so fresh. French braids can hide a multitude of sins.

Sky-High Updo

Hairstylist to the celebrities @aaroncarlohair created this beautiful sky-high updo for Little Mix star @leighannepinnock. The glowing mum to be looked like a goddess for her baby shower. If you are looking for a statement festival hairstyle, then this is the look for you.

Boho Fishtale Braids

These boho fishplaits by our very own Fanola artist @claudiadymondhair are the perfect laidback look for effortless festival hair. We love how Claudia has paired the fishplaits with cute butterfly accessories, which just add to the festival vibes. She used the Styling Tools Thermo Fixing Spray to keep the hair soft and glossy without weighing it down.

@Mehlun is our colour queen, and her profile is full of colourful hair combinations, which would all be amazing for festivals. Head over to her Instagram if you are tempted to try out multicoloured locks this festival season. To create this aquamarine dip dye, she used Electric Blue, Emerald Green and Pure Aqua Free Paints for the ends.

We think these unicorn plaits by @haileekayhair are one of our favourite festival hairstyles. You can choose whatever coloured hair extensions you would like and then simply include them when you’re plaiting your hair.

90s Updo

90’s fashion trends have made a comeback, and they have brought with them the 90’s hairstyles to go with them. Think claw clips, flicky blowdrys and bandanas. @Mphairartist is the stylist behind this claw clip, curl pile up.

Space buns are an iconic festival hairstyle and will have you looking out of this world. Pardon the pun. Influencer @x_carms sported space buns for the Coachella festival back in 2018, but this hairstyle is still proving popular this year.
