Great Lengths’ Guide to ultimate festival glam

Come rain or shine, one of the best things about the British Summertime is the festival season, and here at Great Lengths, we know how important it is that you feel and look glam for when the lights shine on your favourite bands.

To help our Great Lengths Lovelies look fabulous from head to toe, here’s our guide to the ultimate festival fashion essentials…

What to wear

For carefree festival frolicking, keep your feet dry, mud-free and comfy all day long with a pair of wellies. Ensure your life essentials (money, phone, and your Great Lengths hair styling products of course!) are close at hand in a pretty yet practical backpack, like this leopard print one from Warehouse.

Keep it casual in your festival staple denim shorts and a striped tee for the daytime, and simply switch to a pastel cami and printed kimono to cover up for evening glam at the centre stage.

Stying Your Hair Extensions S1


If you’re a beauty fanatic, make like your favourite celebs and rock a standout eye or lip colour like this Illamasqua lipstick in Glissade. Opt for a light BB cream or tinted moisturiser for low maintenance, summer perfect skin. Add your favourite statement sunglasses to top off your A-list beauty look!

When it comes to festival hairstyles, fashion knows no limits, so embrace the opportunity to wear a style you wouldn’t normally go for. For ‘one-dayers’ – your hair will be fresh and bouncing, so wear your locks in loose curls or beachy waves.

For ‘weekenders’ – It’s likely a wash and blow-dry isn’t on the itinerary so keep your hair looking stylish by tying it up in a statement top knot, finished with a printed head scarf or floral scrunchie. Our 100% human hair extensions will add length and volume to your hair for the perfect bun or ponytail.

Alternatively, join the celebrity braid parade and work your locks into a fishtail plait or braided up ‘do for a low maintenance yet highly styled look. Add a flash of colour that’ll get you noticed in the crowd, by opting for our Fastrack service using GL Apps hair – the fashion colours such as pastel pinks and neon hues will add texture to your braids for an on-trend, temporary festival style.
