Braids, bold make-up and lots of glitter. Every year, festival season revives a selection of statement trends, taking practicality and style and combining the two to create unique looks that are sure to stand out within wellie-clad crowds. Take a look at our favourite festival-themed hair and beauty looks below and find out how you can update your treatment and retail offering with a range of exciting products that are sure to be an essential for your client this festival season.
Anything goes during festival season. From bold, 80’s-inspired eyeshadow to sequins and jewels scattered across the face, festival season causes a wave of originality and your client will be eager to show off a make-up look that will stand out. Retail a variety of Sleek MakeUP i-divine eyeshadow palettes to clients to allow them to create a look that’s sure to turn heads this summer. We love the sunset palette, a variety of warm oranges, coppers and golds, as well as the acid palette, 12 electrifying shades sure to stun.
Bling and braids
Gone are the days when braids were simply a practical way of keeping sweaty festival hair at bay. Now, braids are the most stylish look to show off, with many adding embellishments and hair piercings to their plaits to create an edgy, urban vibe. We love this simple braided hair look as, not only is it practical, but it’s on trend. To ensure your client can enjoy this look all festival long, retail the Silhouette super hold pump spray, a hairspray that provides support as well as natural shine. As it is non-aerosol, it will also be accepted into festivals, ensuring clients can avoid last minute styling drama.
From tribal prints to iridescent shimmer, festival season is the place for statement fashion. Incorporate these trends into your client’s festival nail look by stocking up on essential nail art supplies such as foils, glitters, crystals and stones. Nail art pens are also a great investment, allowing you to create bespoke designs for your client, similar to this stunning bejeweled tribal nail look. We love the Star Nails nail art pen in white, a must for any professional nail art collection.
Metallic accessories and accents have been a staple trend within the world of fashion over the last year. From shiny silver shoes and bags to the huge chrome nail trend, it’s been hard to miss this look. Encourage your client to incorporate this statement trend into their make-up look this festival season with metallic eyeshadows and highlighters. Sleek MakeUP’s calm before the storm eyeshadow palette features a number of stunning metallic shades, while the brand’s solstice highlighting palette will allow clients to create gorgeous shimmer on areas such as cheek bones, jaw lines and temples.
