Festival Hairspiration

With festival season creeping up, be sure you’re keeping your hair looking impeccably fabulous and summery for Glasto, V Fest and Isle of White, even if the weather doesn’t stay that way!

You’ll have your boots, flowers and your trusty tent at the ready, but if your hairspiration is lacking, check out our tips below to make sure you’re keeping on-trend and ahead of the game!


If you’re committed to a four-day fest, be sure to start the festival with your hair down when you’re at your freshest. Start the festival as you mean to go on with fresh locks on the first day, eventually working your hair into an up-do. But with the likes of Kendall Jenner this year, long curly layers are certainly in this summer. However, if flowing locks don’t come naturally to you, Great Lengths’ hair extensions blend discretely with your natural hair to give a flawless, natural look whilst increasing volume and length.

Best of all, if you want your look tailored to your style, whether it’s a wavy, soft or deep wave, the hair extension can be permed to order.

60’s hippy

Bring out the colours and get into the spirit of the 60’s with Great Length’s Fashion Shades. To save your natural hair from damaging colours, these extensions offer an impressive selection of pastel, neon and jewel colour options, depending on how brave you want to be. We absolutely love Jourdan Dunn’s lilac do below, but dyeing your hair a bright or unusual colour can be damaging, so our stand out shades offer a kinder alternative with the same eye-catching look.

Hair-up, accessories on!

When you’re looking past your best on the last day, it’s advised that you should wear your hair up in a low-chignon, which have been really popular for a catwalk-inspired, messy-festival look this year. Our small travel brush can be discretely hidden in your pocket and pulled out on demand! This way, you can neatly tuck your hair away whilst you rock out to the summer tunes. Dress it up with hair accessories or flowers in your festival armoury, secret weapons when it comes to disguising tired looking hair. Check out our YouTube channel for some tips and tutorials!
