Festival Hair Trends for Summer

There is nothing that says summer quite like festival season and with warm, sunny weather finally here it is hard not to think about all the fun upcoming festivals and activities to attend!

Festivals are a place where you can express your style through wild hair colours, unique hair accessories and unexpected hairdos – they are a hair stylist’s dream!

Once again, Element Hair is here to bring you the latest and greatest in the world of hair and beauty inspiration. This time around we’ve rounded up the top trends in festival hair for 2016! Check them out below.


Braids are a classic when it comes to festival hair and for good reason! They are incredibly versatile and can be used to create some truly gorgeous looks. Not to mention that they give off the perfect laid-back, hippy-chic vibe that festivals are known for.
Want to rock braids for your next festival? Try a bunch of small braids or create more drama with a large, messy braid. Or better yet, do a combination of both!

Hair Charms

Hair accessories have ranged from flower crowns to glitter but this new trend is taking the festival scene by storm. These small hair charms are a welcome throwback to the current trend of 90’s fashion. Although simple and easy to wear, they make a big statement.

Try adding them in as you braid your hair or attach them to a headband and create your own DIY look!

Multiple, Bright Colours

This trend makes our hair stylist hearts so happy. With everything from rainbow hair colour to bold and vibrant dyes, hair colour is creating a stir in the festival scene. Men and women are rocking daring and unexpected hues for festival season.
Are you ready to try something different with your hair colour? Be sure to contact Element Hair and book your Elumen hair appointment to get bold colour that lasts.

Hair Tattoos

This trend is similar to the temporary tattoos seen last year throughout festival season with a unique twist – you can put them in your hair! Add a bit of copper or gold to your ‘do by applying these to sleek strands.

Which of these looks do you love? Would you dare to rock highlighter yellow hair? Can’t wait for a festival to test these looks out?
