If you’re in need of some inspo for your short hair this festival season, stop right there. Festivals are the place to express yourself and switch up your swag... which is why we’re bringing you our top hairstyles for short hair that are a sure way to spark serious hair-envy and serve some double-tap worthy looks. Keep scrolling to get inspired for your most memorable festival look yet!

Accessorise, Accessorise, Accessorise!


An on-trend hair accessory can add the perfect amount of oomph to your festival hairstyle for short hair. Lacking length won’t be stopping you from shining like the true festival gem you are -  glitter roots are an easy way to do just that. Sprinkle in some sparkles and gems throughout your part to instantly step up your festival game. The goal is to be creative: add some variety by playing with materials, colours and shapes. Tie a colourful bandana around your short ‘do to inject some attitude to your festie look - you can even colour coordinate it with your outfit. Flower pins are a great way to add a modern floral touch (goodbye, flower crowns - you had a great run). 

Your festival hairstyle for short hair ft. your hot accessory wouldn’t be complete without our favourite V, volume! Kérastase VIP Volume In Powder takes your look to new heights whilst keeping your strands in place so you can get down to your favourite artists without stressing about your strands. 
 

The Crimp Is Back

The 80s are back and more beaut than ever. This iconic look has been given an upgrade that retains all the edginess without the fuss or frills. For a more subtle look, try crimping hair just at the ends. For best crimping results, L'Oréal Professionnel Pli by Techni.Art delivers. Dubbed as the “foundation for hair”, this product adds shape fix, grip and hold. 
 

Top That Knot!

Easy to create? Check. Perfect for short hair? Check. Effortlessly cool? Check check check! The best look to tick off all the right style boxes - space buns are a fun take on the top knot trend. Take the party to another planet and mix glitter and gel together and apply to little creased areas on exposed scalp… so pretty it’s out of this world. Another way to play with this festival hairstyle for short hair is go on a fringe-binge. A fringe is a stunning way to frame your face and freshens up any updo like magic. To keep your top knot top notch, finish this look with L’Oréal Professionnel’s Infinium Hairspray - or should we call it hairslay?. 

Pulling an all-nighter has never looked so good.
