At Remington, we know that summer festivals offer us a chance to try out more daring and spectacular hair styles, from glamorous up dos to gorgeous boho chic waves. That’s why we spoke to milk_shake, who with their amazing products and hair care tips, have styled three incredible new looks for your next festival.

Glamour Girl:

If you consider yourself a bit of a glamour girl at home, you may be feeling a little worried about maintaining you statement style at a festival. There’s no need to worry though as luckily there is an amazing festival hair do to suit everyone! When you can’t live without big hair and maximum height is a must, try to incorporate both into a more festival-ready look with some glamorous braiding:

Get the Look

Gently tease hair from the roots to achieve height, then braid and twist it round to rest over one shoulder. Keep the braid quite loose and softly pull flyaway hairs out to give your look effortlessly fabulous festival style.

Lasting power

As the braid loosens, your look will become more appealing and dramatic so expect to get a couple of days wear out of this glamorous hair style.

Prepare the hair for styling using milk_shake shaping foam that will add texture and a medium hold. Finish off your look with milk_shake open air hairspray to hold the shape in place and provide maximum protection from unwanted wind and rain.

Grecian Girl:

If you’re a girl who loves to party come rain or shine, this is the perfect festival hairstyle for you that will also take your look from day to night with effortless ease. This fabulously braided hairstyle will also last as long as you do while looking uber-cool and oh-so-pretty!

Get the Look

Take even sections from the top of the head and part into segments as if you are peeling an orange. Choose the direction that you wish each braid to go in and then plait on top of each parting. Once all of them are completed, draw them to the back of your head and intertwine them in a pretty bun, fixing down with hair pins.

Lasting power

Despite its sophisticated feel, this looks is surprisingly low maintenance and will last throughout a festival. As the braids start to unravel, the look will take on a more relaxed edge that will still be incredible for a festival.

Prepare the hair with milk_shake leave in conditioner and milk_shake smoothing cream to ensure a smooth and sleek finish. Once you’ve assembled your look, spritz the hair with milk_shake open air hairspray to keep it in place for longer.

Boho Girl:

Flowers are a festival essential as well as being ideal for any girl that loves to inject a little boho chic in to their style. There are few things more beautiful than soft boho braids decorated with delicate flowers, and we think they are both ideal for achieving a dreamy festival look.

Get The Look

Using a pretty flower halo, carefully plait a section of hair around the halo band to create an effortless, soft and super pretty festival look. Braids always look great with long hair but this particular look is also perfect for midi length styles too.

Lasting power

This is a low maintenance style which will hold well and keep you flower crown in place all day long. As the festival continues, your hair will start to become more flyaway which will only add to the boho-fabulous style!

Must Have Products

Prepare the hair with milk_shake desiger to give a light hold that still allows the occasional flyaway to keep the hair looking soft and feminine. Once your crown is in place, finish off your look with milk_shake open air hairspray which will also protect it against the elements.n
