Festival hair inspiration

As you have probably seen on my Instagram, I have been posting a lot recently about the best festival hairstyles. With festival season being upon us and Coachella just passed, everyone is wondering how they will have their hair this summer at festivals and ultimately, how can you make your hair look festival ready quickly and easily whilst looking unique? I have some of my top festival hair tips coming your way…

One of my favourite ways to style hair for festivals is using mini bands to create a bubble effect. This is a simple way to add some style to your look and this will also keep your hair away from your face! Jazz it up with some face glitter, hair glitter and some earrings to complete the look.

I think everyone’s favourite at the moment is the simple but effective… space buns! There are so many different ways to style this look. You can spice up the look even more with some glitter hair spray, a new colour and some glitter. This is a look which is easy to style. For long and thick hair this looks amazing with your hair down and two little buns and for those of you with thinner hair who want to add volume to your look, you can tie all of your hair back into buns!  



Similar to with my previous hair styles, adding hair accessories can be a simple way to really spice up your look and ensure that you look festival ready. This could be through using some cool scrunchies, hair clips, glitter, a head scarf (which I am loving at the moment check out my recent Instagram posts!) as well as hair rings! If you want to be completely out there, a flower crown might be the perfect vibe for you, but hair rings are definitely in at the moment and they can add an edge to your look.


Another simple way to style your hair and this works really well if you have hair extensions and usually wear your hair down. So, if you want a change but you still want to show of your long, luscious locks, try plaits or braids! You could even add some hair rings into your plait to finish the look. This is a simple way to add some style, stick to the festival vibe as well as ensure that your hair is looking good all day!

Adding some glitter to your hair is the perfect way to get into the festive spirit without having to spend hours achieving the perfect look.

A classic look

if Christmas accessories aren’t quite your thing then you can achieve a simple but effective classy look with some ribbon! You could go for red ribbon or even black if you really want to keep it simple; it will still add that perfect touch of festive style. I absolutely love this ‘half up, half down’ look with a plait (right image), this is also easily achievable with your Great Lengths Hair Extensions!

You can create the perfect Christmas look with a high pony tail and either some transparent elastic bands (left image) or even some red bobbles! You could even tie some ribbon at the end of the ponytail for an even better festive look. This look will give you bauble vibes on Christmas Day!

Autumn hair styling tips with Santiago Caparros

The Autumn season has officially arrived! After a summer of making memories and going on holiday, for most of us, this can damage our hair! What better time to spice things up for autumn? Have a change! So, what are the ultimate autumn hair trends this year?

Hello to the dark and rich!


Darker and richer colour tones are definitely a little more stylish for autumn. For darker hair and brunettes, this look could be to grow out your roots or to simply add a gorgeous ombre of warmer tones or even some balayage. For blondes, why not add some subtle caramel tones throughout your hair? What better way to achieve the perfect Autumn vibe!

Work that ponytail!


There is nothing more stylish than a low ponytail, right? Low pony’s will be everywhere throughout Autumn. They are quick, easy and maintainable in the Autumn breeze! We must also not forget how easily maintainable they are where your hair extensions are concerned!  Whether you want to achieve a casual and messy look or a sleek and sexy vibe, all can be done through the simple but effective low ponytail! Kim Kardashian is known for ALWAYS slaying a sleek and sexy pony (see right photo). There is definitely no better hair styling tip for this Autumn!

Honey, honey!

Honey tones are in this Autumn, warming up your hair colour tones will not only blend in perfectly with the season but it will most definitely make your skin look more glowing and bring out your eye colour amazingly! Achieve a simple yet beautiful look this season with some honey undertones.

A cold brew?

A new hair trend that is becoming increasingly popular especially for those of us with weaves! Ever heard of “cold brew hair”? Well… if you can’t decide between deep browns and warmer, honey, caramel tones, then why not just have a mixture of the two? Think about when mix cream and coffee together… that is exactly what cold brew hair looks like! This Autumn should be all about the coffee browns and the darker tones. They are ALWAYS bound to work a treat throughout this season as they will look just perfect and they are also easily maintainable.
