The Side Twists

Amira Pink Tikka Headpiece, £10 | Parizza Delicate Drops Tikka Headpiece, £8 | Crystal Flower Tikka Headpiece, £10

Picture this: it’s day one at the festival and your hair’s looking fresher than your average. Wearing it loose is the obvious way to go but how do you take it from basic to bangin’? Easy – just get twisting. Start off by parting it in the middle and backcombing a front section of hair for extra volume. Next, twist it away from your face and pin it down with a grip. Repeat on the other side and a serious dose of glam with a tikka headpiece.

The Messy Ponytail

Coachella Headpiece, £12 | Tassel Drop Head Chain, £14 | Glitter Rose Head Chain, £10

Need a zero-effort hairstyle for festival season? The messy ponytail is the one for you. Simply tie your hair into a low pony at the base of your neck, twisting an extra section over the band and securing it place with a grip. Leave the front strands loose and get your boho babe on with an embellished head chain. Dreamy.

The Side French Braid

 Lush Peony Hair Garland, £14 | Blue Posy Hair Bando, £15 | Vintage Flower Crown Bando, £12

Flower crowns are a festival style fixture that we’ve been obsessed with ever since forever, and they’re the sneakiest way to hide them roots – especially if you’ve been going OTT with the dry shampoo. Wanna make them feel oh-so-SS17? Wear it with a braid. Just part your hair in the middle and start plaiting from the left, following it around your head till you reach the other side. Secure it with a hair band and top it off with a flower crown for major Coachella vibes.
