Festival season is here and it will soon be time to start planning your inspired festival look. Whether you're 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 2019.
- The Unicorn Rainbow Wig
The unicorn inspired Pastel Rainbow Wig features multi coloured pastel layers and adjustable fringe. Coordinate with matching rainbow faux freckles to bounce off your ‘My Little Pony’ inspired hair.
2. The Khloe Wig
Inspired by the California cool of Coachella, the darker 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
One of the most popular colours of the year so far, beautiful blue is set to be a big trend at music festivals. The Blue Kylie Jenner inspired 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 Afro Wig makes an ideal choice for the whimsy of Latitude and the Ibiza atmosphere of Creamfields. With a mass of tight afro curly hair in a gorgeous shade of baby pink, the surprisingly lightweight pastel wig is a huge best seller. Check out more of India's festival makeup looks here.
5. The Smooth Supermodel Clip In Ponytail
The space buns 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 colour matching 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 Sherbet Swirl Lace Front Wig
Rainbow hair is EVERYWHERE and a summer festival is the perfect excuse to try out the multicoloured trend. The Pastel Rainbow Lace Front Wig provides even more versatility than the Unicorn Rainbow Wig, owing to the super natural hairline. Arrange into a host of styles for day-to-night looks, with the confidence that the lace front creates a seamless blend with the scalp. Rainbow braids, space buns, top knots and messy ponytails can be achieved with ease.
8. The Lilac Rebel Lace Front 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 Lilac Bob Lace Front Wig boasts plenty of volume and light brown roots for a more natural look. The perfect design to expose the face and accessorise with bold glitter makeup
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 makeup artist Cassie Wells and opt for matte skin, lined eyes and contrasting bold lips.
10. The Manic Daffodil Lace Front Wig
No top festival wigs list would be complete without a neon wig! Looking to stand out? The super popular Bright Yellow Lace Front Wig is a best seller during festival season. With neon being a huge trend for 2019, incorporating the look into hair and makeup is just ideal for the big music festivals.
