Festival season is here and it will soon be time to start planning your inspired festival look. Whether you are attending Bestival at Lulworth Castle, Donnington Park’s Download Festival, the notoriously muddy Glastonbury in June, the fantastical Latitude or any of the countless UK music festivals, it’s an opportunity to be colourful and creative.
April’s Coachella festival saw a selection of pastel hair colours, double buns, glitter infused makeup and ombre nails, with the trends looking set to continue throughout the Summer.
Our festival wigs guide previews the top 10 wigs based on sales, pre-orders and predicted trends for 2017.
- The Unicorn Wig
The Unicorn inspired Rainbow Wig features multi coloured pastel layers and side parting. Add a neutral headband or headpiece to bounce off your ‘My Little Pony’ inspired hair.
2. The Lauren Wig
Inspired by the California cool of Coachella, the dark roots of the best selling Long Blonde Wig create an ombre effect with the warm blonde beach waves. Opt for rhinestone face jewels and bold lipstick to complete the look.
3. The Blue Kylie Wig
The most popular colour of the year so far, beautiful blue is set to be a big trend at music festivals. The Blue Kylie Jenner Wig is an extra long design with wavy layers of thick hair falling to the hips and ideal for the secret mermaids among us. Coordinate your makeup using ocean blue tones and silver glitter.
4. The Pink Afro Wig
Continuing with the pastel trend, the Pink Extra Large Afro Wig makes an ideal choice for the whimsy of Latitude and the ‘Sweet Dreams’ themed Secret Garden Party. With a mass of tight afro curly hair in a gorgeous shade of baby pink, the surprisingly lightweight pastel wig is already selling fast.
5. The Smooth Supermodel Clip In Ponytail
The double bun hairstyle is a huge trend this year and swamped the valleys of the Coachella festival. Super cute, beautifully flattering and gloriously versatile, this high fashion style requires next to no maintenance throughout the day and allows for serious moshing without the inevitable tangles.
Not enough hair for two full buns? No problem, take inspiration from celebrities and fashion bloggers by using clip in ponytail hairpieces.
Simply section your natural hair in half and arrange whatever hair you have into two buns (don’t be concerned with how neat or even they are). Then, attach a Clip In Ponytail over each bun using the pressure clip. Wrap the hair around to create a perfectly round and full bun. Tuck the ends out of sight using a hair grip. Add coloured hair spray or glitter to enhance your magical look.
6. The Wilde Silver Wig
Inspired by the Summer goddess look often sported during the festival season? Opt for sensational silver. Our Silver Mid Length Wig features bouncy waves and a face flattering full side swept fringe. The hair sits just above the shoulders and boasts a super natural concealed parting. Go to town with highlighter, matching crystals and a maxi dress for the perfect angelic look.
7. The Red Fairytale Fantasy Wig
The relaxed, uber cool Boho trend still reigns supreme among many festival goers. Our delightfully relaxed, woodland inspired Red Fairytale Wig embraces this trend beautifully with long curly layered hair in burnt tones of orange and red. Add a flower crown for the ultimate retro effect or rainbow glitter makeup for a modern twist.
8. The Lilac Lauren Wig
Lovely lilac has been flooding the pages of Instagram and Pinterest of late. The mermaid-esque shade is ideal for Summer gatherings and festivals. Our Long Lilac Wig boasts extended wavy layers and centre parting. The perfect design to accessorise with a natural looking flower crown hairpiece.
9. The Black Kylie Wig
Pretty pastels not your bag? For those looking for a dark and sultry style, the Kylie Jenner Long Black Wig makes an ideal alternative. The extra long hair falls effortlessly into slightly wavy lengths. Beautifully versatile, the hair can be primed into an array of hairstyles. Think half up half down do’s, messy top knots and fishtail plaits. Be inspired by make up artist Cassie Wells and opt for matte skin, lined eyes and contrasting bold lips.
10. The Pastel Pink Fashion Wig
The glorious Pink Fashion Wig remains our best seller during the festival season. The effortless design flatters all face shapes with shorter face framing layers and off centre parting. The long hair lengths can be styled to suit or accessorised with flowers, gems, headbands and scarves.
