Need an easy vintage look for the festival season? Well here’s a look that’s simple to achieve when getting ready in a tent with limited room and resources!
Step 1: Separate a decent sized section of hair at the front of your head. Clip this up and out of the way, as you’ll be coming back to this bit later.
Step 2: Pull the remaining hair up into a high, sleek ponytail right behind this section. Make sure the hair is well brushed through and that the sides and back look neat (they will be seen!).
Step 3: Run a little curl hold product through the hair and curl it in small sections. If you are camping, try a gas canister curling tong. These can work well if you keep the sections small.
Step 4: Backcomb each curl individually at the roots to give the hair some lift. If you have fine hair try adding in a bit of volumising spray to help thicken the section.
Step 5: Start placing and pinning each curl in a haphazard pile so they create a big bun of curls. Spray for hold with hairspray
Step 6: Unclip the front section and curl it all.
Step 7: Backcomb the section at the roots for lift and then use a little pomade to smooth it and get rid of any flyaways.
Step 8: Twist the section into a pompadour and pin it in place near the base of the curled bun. Take the curled ends that are left hanging down and pin them into the other curls so they blend in.
Step 9: Finally take some flowers and place them into the side of the do. Here I have used two handmade felt flowers from Claireabella’s Closet.
Tips: Try a little dry shampoo in the hair to help style it and make the hair less slippery to work with. Dry shampoo is great for keeping your hair feeling fresh while camping too!
Tips: Use a sturdy elastic hairband to do the ponytail. This will help hold the hair in place and keep the ponytail high.Twinwood Festival and is the UK’s original and biggest annual vintage dance and music festival and takes place on 26 | 27 | 28 | 29 August this year.
