Festival Hair Style Top 5

  1. Boho Braids

Fuss free festival style. The longest lasting look, the braid can see out the week – starting off sleek, and then gradually loosening to enhance its boho appeal.

2. Classic Fishtail


Pretty AND practical, the classic fishtail is a tried and tested festival look.


3. Flower Power


Twisty floral up-do.

4. Festival Goddess


Quintessential festival look, with or without flowers. (shown above)


5. Pin & Gopinngo

For the rock chick at heart, team this messy pinned style with a dark lip and winged liner.


Colourful Clip Hairband (honorable mention)


Cute Kirby grip hair band


Colour Bars

Choose from Arctic Fox, Parma Violet or Peaches & Cream or mix and match different shades.

The looks are created using milk_shake Direct Colour shades, which work best with blonde, highlighted, or ombre’d hair. No permanent colouring will be done during the festival so hair should be lightened beforehand.

The milk_shake pop-up festival salon is powered by the Salon IQ bookings system, with Red Hot Products MD Xavier Berrell  saying “Using the Salon IQ system gives us the extra edge with event bookings; not only does it look professional but it gives us the opportunity to really market the Pop-Ups pre festival and make sure we have enough staff to cope with demand.  The advanced system means we can continue to target our new clients after the event.”
