House Of Fraser - "Hairstyles That Rock" - Festival Hairstyle

Looking for a quick minimum effort, roll outta your festival (hopefully not sodden) tent glam kinda hairstyle?
Then your in the right place...This is my super easy, half up twist. 

When I was contacted by 'House Of Fraser' inviting me to take part in their "Hairstyles That Rock" I was over the moon and got straight to researching, but after a while I realised this hairstyle needs to be one that i'd wear at a festival and even on a day to day basis. Being a girl who loves a quick jush'of the hair n' out outta the house, reading that I needed to use a minimum amount of products was music to my ears.

You Will Need:
Bobby Pins - As many as your hair thickness needs
Dry Shampoo - I love the new 'Batiste Pixie Lott' (My Festival Must)
Aveda Pure Abundance Volumizing Hair Spray - House Of Fraser £16.50 Link Here

Step 1 - Split your hair roughly in half, I prefer it so its not exact but its up to you. 
Step 2 - Split again in half, with a left and a right section 
Step 3 - Begin twisting your left section, slowly grabbing little bits of hair as you twist - a la french braid style. Once done, pin in place. 
Step 4 - Repeat the same process with you right section, and pin. 
Step 5 - Once finished, begin pulling little sections out of your 'twists' to create a looser, bo-ho feel. 
Step 6 - Spray Aveda Volumizing Hair spray all over but especially concentrating on the twists you have just loosened. 
Step 7 - This one is totally up to you, but I often backcomb the section in between the two twists with my fingers just to again create a looser feel. 

My Hair is naturally wavy and depending of the day, weather, even time of day my hair can either look lovely and thick, or well a little lack lustre, so using a spritz of both my dry shampoo and the Aveda Volumizing Spray ensures that my hairs stays looking thick all day, so this is 100% a product a can't do without and would therefore have to be in my little bag all festival long - What more can you ask for that festival chic!


Hope you enjoyed my quick and easy Festival look, whats your go-to festival hair look??



  1. Your hair looks lovely :) I'd love to do a similar thing with my hair but it's so fine, fly away and short that no style stays in it for long! All I can manage at the moment are little buns haha.
    I've given you a follow on Bloglovin by the way :)

  3. This looks so gorgeous, I can imagine it would hide greasy festival hair well too. I only wash my hair once a week anyway before it gets greasy so I tend to just wear my hair down and wavy at festivals and then put it in a bun when it starts to get ragged from the weather

  8. I love this hairstyle! I love how easy it is to achieve as well. I personally never put too much effort into my hairstyles. I've got really long hair and I like it to be wavy and have a slightly messy look. I can't even remember the last time I used straighteners!
