When going to a festival you want to make sure you have plenty of time to enjoy the fun so quick and easy festival hair and make-up fixes are ideal. Try these simple tips to get yourself looking good and ready to party.

Festival Hair Styling tips...

With opportunities to wash your hair few and far between at a festival you want to choose styles that are easy to maintain. Take along a can of dry shampoo to help combat grease and dirt. Simply spray onto the roots of your hair every morning to keep your hair looking fresh. A fishtail plait looks great on long hair or use sleep in rollers to create loose curls for a hippy vibe. Plait a few small sections of your hair into tiny braids for a boho effect and secure with pins and grips. Add colour with beaded or floral headbands or use a plaited headband for a stylish vintage twist. An up do is a great way to disguise any grease if your hair hasn't been washed for a few days. Use a backcombing brush to add volume, using fake buns for an extra boost of glamour. To give your hair a real festival feel, strands of flash colour can be clipped in to make a bold, eye-catching statement.

How to achieve glowing skin...

Even if the weather can't be relied upon while you are at a festival, you can still give your skin a gorgeous summery glow. For a few days before you head off, apply fake tan to gradually build up a natural-looking colour. Using tinted moisturiser while you are away is a foolproof way to maintain a sun-kissed look.
