Perfect Hair for Every Summer Festival

Every summer music festival has its own distinct style, so our stylists created a cute and festival-friendly braid for a few of our top choices. We like to keep makeup simple at festivals (who has time when there are so many great bands to see!), so we matched each look with one of The Look Salon’s own SUPER long-lasting Matte Liquid Lipsticks in a fun color and left it at that.

Keep your hair down but off of your face in hot weather with some tiny side braids, and make it interesting with ribbon or leather string braided in. Stylist Monica straightened the models hair and put in some Oribe Shine Light Reflecting Spray for added shine and heat protection, and then matched her lip to the ribbons.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="20308" img_size="2900x2000" alignment="center"][vc_column_text]Are you a little bit rock’n’roll? More Riot Fest than Bonnaroo? Then we love this look with some metal braided right in. Monica created this style with metal hoops that you can buy at any craft store and a little bit of texturizing spray. We matched it with an edgy teal lip in “Infamous” and a leather jacket to make sure you look like you’re in the band.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="20309" img_size="3000x2000"][vc_column_text]Flowers are ALWAYS appropriate for summer festivals, especially when you are laying in the grass and listening to Norah Jones at Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island.  Stylist Angie created a big, messy braid that started at the crown and then split into two smaller braids. We pinned in some silk flowers (you can use real ones, too!) and then gave it a quick spritz with some hair spray.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image="20310" img_size="3000x2000"][vc_column_text]Stylist Angie lovingly refers to this style as “space-buns,” and we think it’s perfect for dancing all night at a more EDM-focused festival like Ultra in Miami. Throw on some long-lasting liquid lipstick in “Ex’s and Oh’s” and spray on some extra hold hairspray (we like Kerastase Laque Noire) to keep this style looking fresh until 3 A.M[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Give us a follow for more hair & makeup from our stylists @thelooksalondenver and check out our website to book an appointment[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
