Festival Hair Trends for 2018

Festival Hair Trends for 2018

It’s officially spring and festival season is right around the corner. If you’re one of the lucky ones, you’ve already nabbed tickets to one of the most coveted music festivals around – Coachella. For those of us who aren’t fortunate enough to be heading to the desert this year, we can still feel like we’re a part of the party by sporting the year’s most popular festival hairstyle trends.

Space buns

A popular trend carried over from last year, space buns are a solid festival hair trend this year as well. Space buns offer a lot of flexibility – you can take it to Princess Leia extreme or keep it simple with a half up (two petite buns on each side), half down version.

Smaller braids

Although we’ve seen chunkier, mermaid style braids worn quite a bit at Coachella and festival parties, smaller braids are on the radar this year. Scatter several tiny, plait like braids throughout your hair or frame your face with one or two small braids placed about an inch back from your face.

Got three-day old hair you’re not sure what to do with? Frame your face with a small Dutch braid and wrap it into a messy bun or ponytail.

Colored extensions and wigs

We’re predicting one of the biggest festival hairstyle trends this year is going to be brightly colored hair extensions and wigs. Kylie Jenner debuted a neon yellow, blunt bob wig last year at Coachella and it seems the trend is catching on. But, if wearing a wig the color of a highlighter isn’t exactly your thing, try placing a few colored extensions throughout your hair to get the same vibe.

In case you didn’t know, Blowbunny offers colored extension applications! Give us a call or shoot us an email to schedule an extension application today.


Grab your glitter because this trend won’t require much else. Air dry hair and spray a texture spray like R+Co Trophy Shine and Texture Spray into hair. Using the same texture spray, lightly mist part and crown of face or really wherever you want to see glitter. Dust glitter lightly over spray and then set with a fine hair spray like Oribe’s Superfine Hair Spray. Use different sizes of glitter for a more dramatic look.


Pigtails or bunchies as our friends in the UK call them, are back. To keep this look more 2018 and less schoolgirl, flat iron hair before placing into two high pigtails on either side of the head. Don’t overthink this festival hair trend, the simpler the pigtails look, the better.
