Festival Hairstyles

Festival hairstyles are on the agenda at Dirty Looks this week after an epic Glastonbury on the weekend.


Beyonce was the headline act at Glastonbury on Sunday night and she really wowed the crowd with not only her performance, but with her outfit and her fabulous festival hairstyle; her festival look was very reminiscent of the 80’s with her gold sequined jacket and her super voluminous curls – she looked amazing!!

Beyonce’s Glastonbury performance proved that it’s still important to look good despite all the muddy mayhem at a festival so here’s our top picks for this year’s festival hairstyles.


Braids and plaits are a favourite for festival hairstyles and you’ll be bang on trend with this look as braids and plaits are huge this summer!

Fearne-Cotton-HairThe fishtail braid/plait would be a great festival hairstyle choice as it allows you to keep your hair out of the way while still looking gorgeous!! You can wear your fishtail braid neat or tousle it slightly for a more boho feel to emulate the festival atmosphere!


If you’re planning on wearing your hair down then a plait can really set your look off! Pixie Lott’s hair looked amazing at the Isle of Wight festival earlier this month; her hair was styled in lose waves with a 70’s inspired plait decorated with flowers across her forehead. You could plait a Dirty Looks standard weft to re-create this super cute hippy style and add a few small floral clips to really finish it off!

The waterfall plait/ braid would be a gorgeous choice for your festival hairstyle. It’s a glam and girly style that’s just perfect for summer!! Follow our easy step by step guide to create your own waterfall plait/braid.

Boho Waves

Think Alexa Chung and Pixie Lott – these ladies know how to work their boho waves and this is an excellent option for your festival hairstyle.


You can add some waves to your own hair and your Dirty Looks extensions with a large barrelled tong. Gently brush through your curls or run your fingers through them after styling to create a boho, carefree look! A cute headband or a boho clip would be the perfect addition to this style.


A ponytail can look gorgeously girly and it’s great for the festival season because it’s a no fuss style! The ponytail is super adaptive too; you can wear it low or high, in the middle or to the side!

Wrapping a small section of hair around your elastic will add a touch of glamour to this style and you can always add some cute clips or flowers for an extra feminine touch!!
Dirty Looks hair extensions are perfect for achieving super volume and length with your ponytail!
