The 2016 Festival Round-Up + Hair InspoApril 4, 2016 3:48 pm
Vanessa Hudgens has butt-length hair extensions now, so it’s safe to say Festival Season is officially upon us.
It might seem like every millennial with an Instagram account is blowing bubbles at Coachella each summer, but it’s not actually feasible for all of us to travel to California for a celebrity-studded music festival.
Believe it or not, there are other festivals happening this summer. And there’s something for everyone.
So here’s how this works: first, you pick the event that sounds cool to you. Then, you buy tickets.
Then, you commence Festival Hair planning.
Hair is a BFD at festivals. It might be the most important part. It definitely ranks higher than the music part. When you google “Coachella”, how many photos of the concerts do you find? None. You will just find seven thousand photos of Vanessa Hudgen’s hair.
You’ll have to adapt your style to the unique vibe that your festival of choice evokes. But don’t panic; we broke them all down for you and threw in some top-notch hair inspo to steal.
If you’re into…Corona and lime, slushy margaritas, an acceptable situation in which to wear cowboy boots and a bikini, potentially meeting the Frat boy of your dreams, channeling classic summer Last Day of School feels, eating trendy BBQ.
