"Always start with your hair down and work your way up as the weekend progresses. Twists and braids are simple to create and can be done without the luxury of a mirror!"
- jo robertson, head of uk & roi education for ghd
"You'll probably be taking dry shampoo to a festival, but my top trick is not to use it once your hair is already dirty! Use it immediately after styling your hair; rub it into the crown, parting and hairline and it'll preserve your blow-dry for a super long lasting style."
- sally whitehead, ghd creative educator
Accessories are a great way for showing your creative side! Use flowers, rings, slides or bows to really liven up your hair, festivals are the perfect time to experiment.
Don't let wet weather get your hair down at the festival, wear your tresses up in plaits, knots or even small twists, allow to dry out in the sun and undo for voluminous styles that will make you look like you've come straight from the salon.
If your hair is feeling less than fresh, get it up away from your face! Spritz hair with ghd final shine spray and tie up high for a glossy pony that will make you stand out in the crowds.
"Reactivate dirty hair with root lift spray and a little water. Scrunch it in and you'll have gutsy grunge texture!"

"My top tip for festival hair is to invest in a headscarf. Retro is in and it doesn't get more vintage than this - it's the perfect cover up!"
