glitter hair


So as of about 45 seconds ago, the sun was (and still is) shining – HURRAH. 

This sheer glimpse at the possibility of summer has me all excited.

I'm excited for beach holidays, packing my coats away, and of course, all the deadly music festivals coming to Ireland. 

Whether your a Longitude lover, or more of a Body & Soul kind of gal, you'll defo be thinking about the style. 

What will you wear? What makeup look are you going for? WHAT will you be doing with your hair? 

Lucky for you, I'm here to help. 

Last summer, the gorge humans at Babooshka got me all glittered uo for Longitude, and it has got me thinking about groovy hairstyles. 

And so to Pinterest I went, and found some serious festival hair inspo, for your viewing pleasure:

1. Boho chic

Okay, I need this chick's hair immediately. Boho waves, paired with a fishtail plait and ruffled up space buns? Perfection.  

 2. Hair tattoos

So, you probably be finding gold flecks in your hair for weeks, but I honestly think it's worth it! How groovy does this look? 

 3. Alternative ponytail

For many of us, long hair can be a slight hindrance when you want to dance and enjoy yourself. Enter: the ponytail. But when it comes to the festival pony, why not add a few plaits, and be a bit different? 

4. Flower Power

I'm honestly SO over floral crowns, but that doesn't mean I'm over flowers in general. I love the idea of popping a few cute daisies along a plait! 

5. Top knot.

Ah, the simple top knot. You just can't go wrong. 

6. Glitter. Always.

Big dirty YES to smothering ourselves in glitter this festival season. Embrace your inner unicorn.

7. Few feathers, be grand. 

Keep your look simple enough with straight locks and a few feathers thrown in. Can't go wrong.

 8. Go all out.

Colourful dye? Check. Loads of glitter? Check. Mad looking space buns? CHECK!

9. Fab fishtails.

We are LOVING these soft fishtail plaits, paired with cute flowers. Also, the colour of her hair is divine. 10/10.

10. When in doubt… boxer braids.

A classic. They keep your hair out of your face, and you'll look groovy. What's not to like?

Festival trends come and go, and along with tribal print, Hunter wellies and fringed everything, we had banished glitter roots to the sartorial scrap heap.

The look was touted as being the ultimate cover up for grown out or oily roots this summer and was spotted on the likes of Kendall Jenner and Miley Cyrus's roots sparkling in the sunshine at the US's biggest festivals.

Irish girls were quick to pick up on the trend, and while we may not have gotten quite the same weather as Coachella, the masses adopted the sparkly hair look at Electric Picnic, Longitude and Forbidden Fruit.

This time around, the glitter hair trend has had a sleek and chic makeover, and is the ultimate statement hair look to be paired with a festive frock rather than a three day camping ticket. 

While attempting this Christmas trend may feel like a bit of an arts and crafts project, your party season style credentials will thank you.

All you need is a strong hair gel, a pot of glitter in your favourite sparkling shade and some hair spray.

We also advise putting down some newspaper or you'll be picking glitter out of your carpets for weeks. The again, you could just say that it's part of your festive interior decor if you don't want to get the Dyson out.

Simply style your hair in your desired part, brush the gel on with a wide toothed comb and apply the glitter as liberally as you like, finishing with a spritz of your favourite hair spray for some extra hold.

The finished look is a sparkly, eye-catching do' that will wash out faster than your holiday spirit induced hangover. You can thank us later.
