As seen at Coachella in April many celebrities were sporting floral pieces in their hair. Whether you go for a floral halo or flowers intertwined into a plait make sure you include some flower power to create a feminine look.

Tips- Plait Hair

As you’re getting back to nature by sleeping in a field, add some fresh flowers for instant natural bo-ho chic. Create your own or buy artificial from high street stores before the main event.


Feathers are also popular at the moment on the festival scene. They, like flowers give a natural look that is effortless. Check out Vanessa Hudgens at Coachella in April, she combines feathers, flowers and accessories to create a laid back festival look.


Continuity is everything when you have limited products and accessories so continue the feather theme with some matching accessories.

When it comes to styling your hair in a field it’s best to keep it simple. With no hair dryer or straighteners for support, plait hair one day and then remove to reveal subtle waves the next. Try a wrap over plait across the front of your hairline that’s simple and practical. Keep hair loose and free with minimal products.

Wear a hat! The Isle of Wight may not be sun kissed like the Californian Coachella but hats were a popular trend across the pond. This tip is ideal for covering up greasy, dull hair and perfect for completing a look for long flowing manes. Hair is protected from sun damage and you are protected from any unflattering images that appearing weeks later.
