Coachella is a wrap and as the rest of festival season begins, here are a few styles we can look forward to all summer long! Read on to see the top styles for festival season, revealed by the Blue Tit Creative Team.
TREND 1: Rainbow Bright
“Summer is coming and the S/S17 shows inspired sticking to a super-bright summer colour scheme when it comes to hair. Rainbow coloured dreadlocks were spotted at Marc Jacobs, and shades of lavender, lilac, and violet dominated the runway at Gypsy Sport. These Rainbow Bright colours are a must have for festival season and will ensure you stand out from the crowd. For those not ready to brave an all-over colour permanently, wash-in, wash-out shades are a good go-to for a non-permanent, creative colour solution”.

TREND 2: BRAID WINNER
“The perfect way to disguise dirty, greasy, festival hair, braids have been a huge trend, both on and off the catwalk, and their versatility and ability to transform a look means their popularity shows no sign of disappearing. Braids are so easy to recreate and work better in hair that hasn’t been washed, making them this summer’s number-one festival style. A double scalp braid is a key trend this season, but requires a comb, mirror and steady hand – not easy at festivals! My advice? Pull hair in to a side pony and weave in to a fishtail braid. To finish, lightly pull random strands from the finished braid, to roughen up the look, as this is a plait that looks much better when it’s slightly dishevelled”.

TREND 3: DENIM BLUE
“Whether it is stonewash, indigo or inky blue, denim hair is the tone of the moment. You can either make a statement with a blue-black shade for a touch of drama, or go for a softer look with silvery, icy tones that is both edgy and beautiful – jean genius! Once your hair is the perfect shade of blue, braid it into small sections, and go over with straighteners. This will result in a fluffy, textured finish once you open up the braids”.
