Festival hair should be three things; easy to achieve, long-lasting and unquestionably head-turning. Because after all, festivals are the place to express yourself and have fun with your style. Festival hair accessories are the perfect add-on to your packing list because they give you everything you want from your hair without the need for mirrors, showers or hot tools. But… not sure which accessories will be ‘it’ this year? Try one of these seven accessories for a sure-fire way to amp up your festival hair game.
