Summer festival season might be over, (I know it’s a really sad time) but there are plenty of festivals which kick-off in the winter. Your hair has probably endured all the lovely hot weather of this summer, and now has to be put through its paces in the cold and the wind of winter. Keeping your hair fresh, tidy and nourished on a normal day is difficult but at a festival, it’s certainly no easy feat.
Over the May bank holiday, I kicked off the festival season with a bang (plus a lot of glitter and paint) and went to the fabulous Hogsozzle!
Hogsozzle is an intimate, smaller scale festival but what it lacks in attendee numbers it makes up for in personality, individuality, and creativity. This 3-day festival, nestled in the Hertfordshire countryside was amazing. There were sequins, feathers, fur, fancy dress and enough paint to rival a Dulux warehouse – it all made for a fantastic festival.
What do I need to take to a festival?
This is one of the most common questions I get asked by everyone thinking of going to a festival. Although what I take differs from festival to festival, for the most part, it remains the same. Here is my comprehensive list of what to pack for a festival so that you are ready to hit the festival fields this summer.
For all those that didn’t jet off to Coachella the other weekend, myself included (and yes I have major FOMO) I have compiled all my favourite looks and outfits from Coachella this year. Plus, I have even given you tips where you too can ‘shop the look’ on a much more modest budget!
With festival season around the corner, I thought my next post should be a festival FAQ which can answer a handful of questions I get asked either at or leading up to a festival.
I remember the lead up to my first festival, I had no clue what I was doing. I googled about a million things, watched tons of videos on YouTube and trawled through blogs to find out the answers to what I thought were probably very obvious questions.
I wanted to give you as many answers as I could all in one place, as well as provide a platform where you could ask me questions, no matter how obvious you think they might be. So, let me hold your hand and help you prepare as you take the plunge to booking your first, third or hundredth festival so you can have an easier, more fun and worry-free festival experience!
Festivals are a mecca for the bold and the beautiful when it comes to makeup. So you have planned all your outfits for the weekend, next thing is makeup… what do you take with you? How can you make it last all day? How can you get that ‘I haven’t even tried’ look or how much glitter can I really get away with? My festival makeup routine is both easy and inexpensive, so have a read and enjoy!
