Festival Inspiration

Festival season is upon us and there are some seriously enviable styles out there that you can recreate at home in a few simple steps with the help of the Dean Jones Hairdressing team. Think Coachella chic all summer long!

Space Buns


This intergalactic trend isn’t going anywhere and we love it. It is super easy to create. This looks amazing with half your hair left down or all of your hair tied into two buns at either side of your head. Start by gathering the amount of hair you would like in each bun and tie these into high ponytails at each side. Gently back comb your hair to create volume and texture before wrapping around the hair tie and securing with hair grips. Pull some pieces of hair loose to get that ‘undone’ finish perfect for festivals. We love hair glitter and jewels so if you are feeling creative add some of this to your hair parting and your festival style will be instantly elevated.

Hat Hair – Don’t Care


Hair feeling flat and a little bit hungover as you hit day 3 of festival fun? Hide it with an on trend hat and no one need know. Simply wave the ends of your hair softly and style with your favourite hat. We  recommend smoothing a little System Professional Luxe Oil through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair after styling with your curling iron to reduce frizz and add shine.

Pimp Your Pony


A super easy way to add an edge to your average ponytail and perfect for day two or three hair at your fave festival this summer. Tie your hair into a high textured pony then take sections down throughout the pony tail and tie into little bubbles before teasing the hair to add texture and movement. The beauty of this style is the relaxed feel, there is no need to keep each section of hair equal or perfect. Embrace that messy vibe this festival season.


Hair Trends this Summer

Caring for your hair throughout Summer is more important than ever and there are a number of heat free hair hacks and styles that can be gentle to your hair in hotter weather.

On the go holiday glam

buns and ties

To get that glam look on the go without having to blowdry your hair in the heat, try this super chic bun with a glamorous edge. Allow your hair to air dry naturally after applying some oil or nourishing hair cream like Sealing Cream from System Professional Solar Range to the mid lengths and ends. Gently twist your hair into a low bun, without being too cautious as you want that ‘undone’ look. Tie your hair with an invisibobble as this will not damage your hair. Once your hair is in place, pull some strands loose to create that cool girl vibe before wrapping your favorite silky scarf around the bun. Simply wrap this around your bun and tie at the top in a knot or bow – summer ready in no time with no damage to your tresses!

The Instaworthy wet look scrunching with Olaplex No3 + System Professional Curl Definer

wet look

There is no hotter low maintenance look to rock this summer than the wet look. Even better, you can create this look whilst treating your hair to lots of nourishment and repair with Olaplex No3. Apply your Olaplex treatment generously through damp hair before scrunching into shape. Leaving this on throughout the day/night will act as a super replenishing treatment for your hair and leave you with shiny healthy hair that is well protected. To get that really moisturised wet shine look, add some NEW System Professional Curl Definer and twist hair into place. This will enhance softness and manageability and give you that glossy finish.

Fake it till you make it with sun kissed lites

Sun lites

Having a stay-cation this summer? Time to fake it til’ you make it with some sun kissed lites. Balayage is still bang on trend and there are lots of colour techniques your stylist can use to give you a sunkissed feel. Adding a few light strands round your face can give the illusion of healthier, thicker hair and add a sunkissed finish. Pairing this with a stretched root will give you a low maintenance look that will grow out beautifully throughout the summer and will cause little damage to your hair too.
