Long And Short Hair. These days, planning your outfit and hairstyle is an essential part of festival planning, just as much as checking the lineup.

Luckily for you, we've put together the ultimate guide to festival hair, including everything from expert advice to hair styles to inspire you this summer. Let's dive in...

Styling Festival Hair

Celebrity hairstylist Andrew Fitzsimons says festival hair is all about fun because "you can get really creative with styles, and it's a time and place where someone's personality comes out with how they choose to style their hair."

Stylist Nathalie Bayley from Hadley Yates Salon explains that she loves "soft-textured up-dos" for a festival look, with braids or classic ponytails.

How do you style short hair in hot weather?

Jake Wanstall from Larry King Hair suggests that for short hair, you can tuck one side behind your ear to add an edge and showcase some "cool festival-style earrings."

Meanwhile, Fitzsimons recommends brushing your hair back as it helps "accentuate your facial features" and makes your hair look beautiful when it falls away from your face. "I love a half-up ponytail for short hair because it's easy and efficient," he says.

What can I do with long hair in hot weather?

With long hair, Fitzsimons says, "the world is your oyster."  "Depending on what you want to do, you can go for a high ponytail, a sleek back bun, a messy low bun, a half-up hairstyle," he suggests.

Ideally, when it's hot, you want to keep your hair off your face, so any up-do works great.

Hayley supports this and says, "My favorite for long hair on hot daytime is a messy bun! And for the evening, I love a ponytail or a sleek low bun."

How do you braid festival hair?

To start, Fitzsimons advises teasing the crown of your head to create volume before braiding. Then, part your hair according to the braided style you desire and start braiding. Finish with hairspray to hold it in place.
