Festival Hair

Festivals are back for 2022 and we can expect to see a celebration of fashion and hair to rejoice in life returning to normal (as it can be). There are a few trends to look out for festival hair this year as well as some must have products and top tips for styling festival hair in your salon and to share with your clients before they head off to their favourite festival this summer.

Bubble braids – this look is both practical and fashionable. It’s a great style to opt for on day two or three of the festival as it takes the hair away from the face. The key to nailing this trend is to create a relaxed feel to the style. The beauty of it is that it doesn’t have to be too neat and perfected. Embrace flyways and texture for an on-trend vibe. Use clear elastics to create the bubble effect. A look best paired with fashionable bangs to frame the face.

Space buns – a classic style we have seen for many years now, the space buns aren’t going anywhere in 2022. This style is really playful and fun and can be tailored to suit the individual’s style. Secure the hair in two sections centered at the crown of your head and wrap the hair round the ponytail before securing and manipulating the hair into shape before locking it in with your favourite hairspray. For added texture, apply Joico Rise Up to the roots before styling.

Boho waves – a firm favourite for festival season, boho beach waves will remain on trend for 2022. A style that works best on long hair clients, this look is all about embracing the bohemian look, a care free effortless look. Pair with micro braids throughout the front of the hair, this style is fail safe and always on trend.

Must-have products

When it comes to creating gorgeous festival hair, you need to have the right products both in salon and available for retail for your guests to pack with them. Here are some of my favourites and what I like to use them for –

Joico Weekend Hair – this is a festival staple to take with you. It absorbs excess oil and gives hair a new lease of life. Recommend your clients to use this on day two or three hair to refresh their style.

Joico Zero Heat – perfect for clients who plan to wash their hair while they are away but won’t have access to heated styling tools. It works to reduce frizz and flyways, encouraging natural texture.

Joico Rise Up – a tool to create limitless volume to last through a weekend at a festival. The perfect size for your clients to pop in their bag and apply as needed.

Top tips 

  • Recommend that your clients wash their hair the day before their festival hair styling appointment with you in the salon.
  • Give your clients some extra clear elastics and hair grips following their appointment in case of any emergencies whilst they are enjoying the festival.
  • Create a festival styling menu to name and frame the styles your clients can go for. Ensure all of your team are well versed in the festival looks and able to create them.
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment and try different styles. Festival season is a chance to express your style and have some fun!
