Festival style has proven to be the gateway to a season full of summer style. As the dust settles… or gets washed out of outfits from day 1, 2 and 3, what remains are the memories on the ‘gram and the hair color! While many festival-goers opted for pops of color within their outfits they also added them to their hair as well. As they danced away under the sunshine and the stars pastel shades of all hues and placement shined!

Want to add a little interest to your summer style with a pop of color? Not sure which shade to pick? Take a peek at the ultimate festival season inspiration that Spencer Henry created on Kristen Ritchie of @highendhippie. In a bold move, she took her hair from her usual blonde to pink using the Redken Shades EQ and City Beats!
