The Ultimate Festival Hair

Festival season is upon us. These five hairstyles are about to blow up on Instagram. Get involved!


Huge on Insta and perfect on second day hair, the models at Burani wore the type of top knots that handily smooths down weathered frizz and controls wayward baby hairs.

HOW TO:Keep the top half of your hair pulled back, part in the centre, secure into two high pigtails and twirl into two humidity-safe knots. Finish with a mist of SHOW Beauty Premiere Finishing Spray for hold and shine. Top tip: don’t make them too neat and precise - these are meant to look relaxed.


All-out throwbacks to the glamour of the eighties is set to be everywhere in festival hair. Sharp crumples made their mark at Cornejo, but if you prefer tighter kinks then dig our your crimper.

HOW TO:Divide wet hair into three going from the top of the head to the nape of the neck. French plait each section as tightly as you can, then sleep in them and leave until the last minute to unravel. You want to keep the texture as defined as possible so leave your brush behind and simply finger through the lengths. Finish with a spritz of SHOW Beauty Working Texture Spray for separation and shine.


The whole accessories in hair look isn’t exactly new at festivals but there’s no denying it’s having a moment all over again, with is being especially prominent backstage at Desigual, with flowers and butterflies appearing in countless forms on the S/S17 catwalks.

HOW TO:Pump up your natural texture and place your accessories in a crown over your head haphazardly - basically, don’t worry about neatness or symmetry, which will instantly date the look. To make them stay put, backcomb the area you want to place the accessory, spritz with SHOW Beauty Premiere Hairspray to create hold, and then slip in the clip.


Turn down the volume next festival by wearing your hair sleek and smoothed back. A simple centre parting was the look of choice at Elie Saab. A word of warning: to pull this one off, you’ll have to really work on taming flyaways.

HOW TO:Treating hair to a shot of hydration with SHOW Beauty Moisture Masque before you step foot in your Hunters is a must for this look. After that, blow-dry with a large round bristle brush, pointing the nozzle downwards to smooth the hair, and keep going until completely dry. Smooth on SHOW Beauty Treatment Oil for shine, and pack a bottle of SHOW Beauty Premiere Dry Shampoo to refresh the style the morning after.


There was an explosion of girlie hair accessories on the fashion scene, with Fendi being a key show for fans of youthful accessories.

HOW TO:This one’s perfect on partied out hair. To get the look, sweep away the front section from the face and secure with a toy-like bobble for a stand out look. Next, smooth down any fly-aways with SHOW Beauty Grooming Balm, but leave any hair falling around the face loose, with just a little dash of SHOW Beauty Treatment Oil through it for shine.
