How to achieve fabulous festival hair.

Step 1:

Festival season is absolutely huge, whether it be Coachella, V Fest, Glastonbury or Wireless one of the only cons of the experience is no showering for days! So girls, think of your hair before setting off and give it a good scrub with a quality clarifying shampoo like Pureology Purify. This shampoo (and others like it) will have your hair feeling squeaky clean from scalp to tip for the longest amount of time. You’ll still be a bit icky on the way home but who cares about that right?

Step 2:  

Take some dry shampoo. This little miracle worker is a god send, with the best out there by a mile being Kevin Murphy Fresh Hair.  It doesn’t feel cloying, it smells like coconuts and does a fab job at clearing up any greasy roots without leaving a film of white dust behind! What’s not to love?

Step 3:  

Get Hair Extensions! Well, we would say that, but the reasoning totally makes sense. Most festival hairstyles require lots of hair, think boho glam. Permanent hair extensions will give you comfortable, low maintenance volume and length for months, but if you’re only feeling long locks for a weekend then clip in hair extensions are definitely the way forward. One thing that girls sometimes don’t consider is that our hair extensions hold styles really well, you won’t have your curls or braids dropping out halfway through the day which would be an absolute nightmare when you’re stuck in the middle of a field.

Step 4:  

Fix your hair into a secure braided style that you can leave to get messier and messier over the duration of the festival. Note – the first day you might think your hair is too neat, too perfect, but do try to start with a nice secure braided style and by day 2 it will have become the ULTIMATE festival look! That’s what a 24-hour party does for your hair!  If you get a friend to help you, they can make sure that your style looks good from all angles and is secured properly.

Sarah McKenna is the founder of Vixen & Blush and The London Hair Lab. Sarah graduated as a research biochemist in 2005 and started a career within the pharmaceutical industry, before becoming a hair extensions expert. In 2010, Sarah gained insight into the hair extensions industry and could see that clients had a very poor value/quality proposition. At that time, poor-quality hair extensions were available, at prohibitively high prices. Sarah left her initial career and set out on a mission to improve the hair extensions industry in the UK, using her research and development skills.

Spending 3 years securing a high-quality and sustainable supply of human hair, Sarah then developed new products and fitting techniques to allow long-term refits of the same hair. In this way, Sarah was able to offer hair extensions services at a more affordable price to clients, while improving the quality of the service for her clients.

With Vixen & Blush starting in 2012 as a 1 chair salon in London, Sarah quickly grew the business to what it is today, a team of more than 20 hair professionals working together as London’s leading hair extensions specialists.
