For many music fans, summer equals outdoor concerts and festivals. What could be better than kicking back with your friends and enjoying live music in the sunshine?! From Bonnaroo to Lollapalooza, My Best Friend's Hair has your concert festival style needs covered.
Cool Updos - Standing in the sun all day can leave you all sweaty with hair stuck to your neck and upper back. Avoid the unwanted stickiness with an updo! Easy top knots and sock buns will keep you feeling cool and looking hot. Don't limit yourself to a basic style! We have tons of creative updo ideas to keep your festival style fresh and unique. Don't forget to toss some extra bobby pins in your bag to keep flyaway pieces in their place.
Messy Waves - Willing to bear the heat with your hair down? You aren't alone! We've found that bedhead styles are a huge trend for concert goers. Messy waves that are remnisent of legendary rock chicks like Debbie Harry are still on trend with today's Florence Welch, St. Vincent, and Neko Case. The ease of this style can't be beat! Try air drying before adding a texturizing product and finger combing. Done and done!
Hot Hats - Celebs like Alessandra Ambrosio, Vanessa Hudgens, and Anne Hathaway (pre-pixie!) love Cochella. They also love wearing hats to keep them cool and incognito. Though most of us who don't have the papparazzi following our every move, hats are still a great option for protecting your locks from sun damage. Plus hats are a cute way to accessorize hair that hasn't been washed in a couple days (and when you're camping at a festival, this happens!).
Headbands and Bandanas - We are all about the headband and bandana trend for summer! Use a bandana to help keep your waves from becoming a windblown mess. Whether you’re accessorizing your updo or with long waves, pay attention to little details like folds, bows, and twists. Bonus hippie points if you can craft your own headband out of flowers and leaves! Such a cute look! The natural ease of this style reminds us of the ultimate music festival - Woodstock!
