Open hippie hair, trendy braids or cool jewellery that makes a statement: we present the five most popular festival hairdos and reveal smashing styling variations for dancing, partying and standing in the spotlight. Bonus: valuable added tips for perfect open-air hair

Open-air, open hair? Not necessarily. While a flowing hippie mane is mandatory for the proper look of avowed festival fans, there are also other festive hairdos on the 2016 hair charts. Pinned up, styled, decorated – check out our top five festival hairdos for hair styling ideas that will put you in top form, even after Coachella, Glastonbury and all the rest, helping you get the most out of summer. Hot days, warm nights, cool beats, hippie atmosphere – we are opening the “Endless Summer of Hair”!

And when the music gradually gets softer at the most famous festivals and the tents are taken down, the party goes on: concerts, celebrations, festivities – there are plenty more open-air events coming up. The right hair style keeps you in the game! Important points: the hairdo should stand up to wild dance moves and be absolutely eye-catching!

  • Tips For Open-Air Hair

    Whether you want to dance all weekend or just one evening, spending a lot of time fixing your style in front of a mirror is usually out of the question. Our hair tips help you get the most out of the summer of music!

    • Be sure to pack a small bottle of dry shampoo in your festival bag! This miracle cure lets you go an extra day without washing your hair while giving it more volume with extra hold.
    • Not only your skin but also your hair needs UV protection when the sun is beating down. A hat, cap or bandanna protects your hair and scalp against intense sunlight. An added plus: the sun accessories are hugely popular too!
    • In addition to turning heads with your stylish festival hairdo, you can beguile with an exciting scent. Hair perfumes provide a fragrant freshness kick.
  • You’ve bought your ticket and packed your beauty kit. Now all you need is a trendy hairdo: we present the five best open-air hairstyles in our gallery.

    Festival Hairstyle: New Fringe

    Plunge into a (hair) relationship full of opposites. The long mane falls over the shoulders in loose waves, reflecting free hippie love! Severely pulling back the fringe creates a great contrast (works with a long or short fringe). This keeps the hair under control, but not the sense of style. New and simply beautiful – this look is great for classic open-air, festivals or posh garden parties!

    Festival Hairstyle: Braids

    Festival Hairstyle: Braids

    Simple and ingenious: two braids not only look great in the festival area but also hold really well! Long nights, wild dancing, wind and weather, quickly changing outfits... The braids last for guaranteed staying power with style. Conclusion: braiding is a great choice for festival fans

    Festival Hairstyle: Open Hair

    Open hair for open-air remains a sure-fire styling hit! Not only does the hair dance seductively in the warm summer breeze for a flattering look, it also exudes that inimitable feeling of freedom and lightness. A great side effect: you can style this hairdo in next to no time. Form a centre parting, comb the hair and you are done! If you need to freshen up your mane a bit in between, simply pep up the hairline with some volumising powder

    Festival Hairstyle: Hair Bun

    The blogger knot is now the festival knot! At least during the sunny summer. What speaks for the chignon at the top of the head? Hair styled away from your face is practical and hip! Styling stress and breaking into a sweat are excluded – the casually tied chignon (stylish in the messy look) is well received by festival friends as a feel-good hairdo that lets you party on. From day to night!
