Ugh, Splendour. Everyone’s heading off to gallivant in a field, watching their favourite artists perform live and wearing bangin’ clothes–to say I’m jealous is an understatement. It’s one of the most magical times of the year, and often features wild styles, your fave pair of gumboots and a ton of glitter that is sure to end up absolutely everywhere.
Splendour in the Grass 2017 kicks off on July 21, so to help you prep, we’ve put together a list of a few festival beauty hacks that’ll have you looking your best as you romp around Byron Parklands (hopefully jamming out to some HAIM–I have faith in your music tastes). From overt facial rhinestones to Rihanna-esque coloured contouring, this Splendour will confidently be the most out-there yet.
Festival Beauty Hacks for Your Splendour Weekend
1. Embrace third-day hair
We don’t know if this babe has washed her hair in a week, and frankly–we don’t really care. Braids are such an easy way to disguise any oiliness, so tuck your locks up into something fun and intricate that’ll see you through the whole festival. You can use space buns or mini ponytails to give the whole look a funky vibe, or braid your whole head so you look like a Kardashian. Up to you–the only required step is a little sprinkling of glitter or some fun gems.
To define braids, we love the Redken Braid Defining Lotion–simply smooth through hair to create added grip and keep braids or plaits looking sleek. These little adjustable hair grips from Evo are a mystery until you’ve actually used them on your hair, but once you’ve tried them out, you’ll be sold. Simply twist hair into place and secure, without all the drama of snagging your hair or trying to hide hair ties. Make sure you have a dry shampoo like the Evo Water Killer (available in a handy travel size!) on hand for root touch-ups.
