Pastel Hair Colours

Pastel Hair Colour continues to be a popular hair colour trend however, if you don’t want to take the plunge in everyday life but want to make a bold colour statement at festivals this year, ask your COUPE stylist about temporary pastel hair colours. Please note that temporary pastel hair colours will only work with lightened hair, so if you have dark hair you may have to think of something more permanent, or consider coloured hair extensions

Braided Hairstyles

Beautiful braids are the gold standard when it comes to cool festival hairstyles, probably because they’re a pretty and practical way of keeping your locks out of your face and off your neck. We would suggest either braided space buns or boxer braids because they are sure to stay in place no matter how sweaty you get, and whatever the British weather throws at you! Add a spritz of hair spray to your hair before you style it, this will ensure the braids hold in place.

Glittered Roots

This is the newest festival hair trend, but thanks to celebrities such as Kendall Jenner & Miley Cyrus rocking glittery roots, it’s one that will stick around. No matter if you’ve chosen to wear space buns, braids or tumbling waves, glittery roots will brighten your festival hairstyle and give you that instant “cool” factor.

The Half Up Bun (Hun) Hairstyle

Already a staple everyday hairstyle, the half up/half down bun (or as it is otherwise known, the “HUN”) is fabulous for keeping the weight of hair from your neck in warm weather, with a softer and more flattering style than an updo. Curl your hair to add volume and use a salt spray for texture, and make sure to keep your bun messy for that funky festival vibe.

Hair Accessories 

Festivals are the perfect time to experiment with your hair style, and you can never go too over-the-top with your look. Adding cool accessories to your festival hairstyle will ramp up your fashion credentials. Think floral crowns, silk headscarves or glittering hair jewels.
