Initially, after what seems like months of grey weather, summer is nearly upon us. For many people the festival season starts now. With local parties such as St Paul’s Carnival, Bristol International Balloon fiesta, Bristol Pride and the Bristol Harbour Fest, what better way to get organised than to make sure your hair looks fantastic!
The last thing you want to be doing at a festival is stressing over your hair. So here are a few ideas that can help without taking the bathroom cabinet with you! You can achieve lovely loose summer looks that work with the natural build up of oils in your hair. All you need is the “Hair at 58 festival survival kit” this includes a small selection of pins, grips and bands, a festival size (50ml) can of Aveda Control Force hair spray and a pot of Aveda Pure Abundance potion. A soft bristle brush is also worth having in your bag.
Messy braids, pleats and pony tails are where it’s at this year. Giving effortless style that looks better as the
party progresses into the early hours of dawn!
These styles are much easier to do than they look, first I would suggest a generous sprinkle of Aveda Pure Abundance Potion. A little bit of back combing with a soft bristle brush can also make things a bit easier. Next split the hair into three big sections. These don’t have to be even, in fact the messier the better! Plait your hair quickly either straight down your back or over to one side across the shoulder. Secure the bottom with a band and then gently tease some of the hair out from within the
plait, Just enough to give a disheveled look. If you have a few short layers around your face, these can be left out to add interest around the front.
Once the plait has been mastered, you should be able to play around with the placement. Try plaiting from the side or even one plait on each side. The two plait look could have the danger of looking a bit Britney Spears circa 1990, so to avoid this try bringing the ends up around the sides of your head and secure them a couple of inches back from your hairline with a couple of grips. This look defiantly needs a few soft pieces of hair falling out from the front.
Another nice use of the plait is to do two small ones on either side around the temple area and secure them to another loose plait down the back. This one is slightly trickier so get a friend to pin it in place for you. If you’re feeling adventurous, try lots of random plaits, and pin them up artfully. Alternatively come into Hair at 58 and we’ll show you how to do it!
