Festival Season is here! And with it comes the chance to do things you wouldnt normally do with your hair. So cut loose and have fun!
Paul Edmonds loves the classic festival look: “The ethereal look was a key trend on SS15 catwalk so braid or plait the hair placing beading or a few flowers into the section of the plait for the girly chic look. You can practice a couple of easy braids to switch styles for Day 2 hair ensuring it doesnt look too perfect. Don’t forget to take bands to hold the ends.”
Our Creative Colour Director Vernon Deysel says “Greys and metallics are a major trend this season… and given a bolder twist with drifts of iridescent multi-tonal shades of dark grey to shimmering blue greys and silver, make it look fresher and more youthful. Colour is no longer about static all over colour but instead is an intelligent application of layered stratified colours placed on panels and balayage pieces to add future depth and dimension.”
Gemma Humes the Afro specialst at Paul Edmonds London points out “Individuals with chemically relaxed hair should consider using coloured clip extensions, weave or a full-on hair piece similar to the route taken by Jourdan Dunn. Remember that Afro hair tends to be fragile and colour over relaxed hair can be damaging.”
Festival Hair Maintenance
At Paul Edmonds London we don’t let small things like camping in a muddy field get in the way of beautiful hair. Here are a few cheats and product suggestions from our team stylists-to-the-stars on how to always be ready for that career defining instagram shot.
1. Cant wash your hair? No problem! Queues to the showers a mile long? Water cold when you reach? Try our must-have product Volume Maker by Shu Uemura for instate root lift, texture and body. Its also great if you do get to wash your hair to hold the style for longer. Volume Maker £32.00 BUY NOW
2. No plugs? No problem! Pack cordless hot irons into your rucksack to help add movement into hair. Take random sections and ruffle it up – L’Oreal Tecnhi Art Constructor will help keep the style as well as giving heat protection. Remember it should look like you’ve just run your fingers through your hair in the morning so it looks natural.
3. Sunshine and no shade for miles? No problem! If you have coloured hair remembered to use a UV protector before styling or falling asleep in the sun listening to DeadMau5. We don’t wouldn’t be seen dead stepping out of our Airstream without Essence Absolue from Shu Uemura, this adds gloss, shine and protects the hair against UV. Essence Absolue £39.50 BUY NOW!
4. Rain? No problem! Quickly make it into a pony tail! Twist it round until you get a rope and then wrap initiate a bun and fix with you favourite festi-hairband. This way when it dries you will have a perfect festival style beachy wave. All you need do then is apply some mouse and run it through with your fingers to break up any loose ends – this will give you bouncy hair and volume.
