THE KIT

STEP UP FESTIVAL HAIR

Stand out from the crowd with main stage-worthy festival hair. Here’s everything you need to look like you’re the headline act:

STEP 1

PIPE BRAID PREP

To crochet plaits to perfection, you can start with any kind of festival braid. Our favorite? Right now, we’re all about pipe braids. Weave them in, then grab your crochet needle and bold-colored thread.

STEP 2

SEW IT IN

Starting at the root, thread the crochet needle through your pipe braid. Continue threading the needle through hair until the cord is wrapped around the length of the pipe braid, tying the cord into a knot of the end. Make sure to leave ends of hair free.

STEP 3

STAND-OUT FESTIVAL HAIR

Time to lock it all in. For a headbanging mane that stays in place, mist Shockwaves Power Hold Hairspray all over your festival hairstyle. To smooth down flyaways, spritz the hairspray into palms of hands and lightly press down on stray strands. You’re ready to take the stage.
