It’s hard to believe that we are entering festival season! In addition to warmth and sunshine, there are a variety of huge events that take place during these heated months such as EDC, HARD Summer, Electric Forest, Electric Zoo, Paradiso, and so many others. Picking out your outfits is only half the excitement when it comes to festival fashion. There’s a whole world out there when it comes to creating fun festival hair looks. Are you bored of styling your hair as you would in the non-rave world? Check out these 4 hairstyles you need for Summer Festivals below!

1. Boujie braids

Braids have always been a go-to hairstyle for a number of reasons. First of all, they keep your hair out of your face so you can dance and headbang freely! Second, they help cool down your body (a lifesaver at places like EDC). Third, they don’t require any sort of hot tools and are a great option if you attend any camping events. Something that I’m loving so far in this festival season is the integration of colorful braids! It seems like this trend has already begun to make its debut this year. I would love to see more of this look at a vibrant place like EDC!

2. Space Buns

Space buns are a great option if you are limited on time and want to try something that’s a little out of this world. There are a ton of variations such as the "Princess Leia" type of look or creating mini space buns for a half up half down sort of style.

3. Sparkly Strands

I feel like glitter will never go out of style. Don’t just limit yourself to sprinkling fairy dust on your face! Instantly add visual interest to your strands with a variety of cosmetic glitter options. To start, mix half a cup of glitter of your choice and half a cup of hair gel in a small bowl. Next, dip a small fan brush in the concoction and paint your hair however you please!

4. Adding Accessories 

Personally, my go-to hairstyle is always adding a fun hairpiece of some sort! The options are nearly endless when it comes to accessories.
