1. Splendour in the Grass, Australia (July 19th-July 21st)
The annual Australian music festival was one of the first eco-friendly music festivals, partnering with several organizations for positive change and to preserve its New South Wales region. Year after year, its Carbon Offset program offers attendees to pay $3 extra to invest in Australian renewable energy projects, and even pay extra to plant a tree at the end of the festival. Its range of indie, rock, hip hop, electronic and alternative music, attracts several different age ranges and people from all over the world. As Australia’s biggest summer festival, you gotta go big or go home!
Our ideal hairdo for SITG2019 is the Half Up Half Down Top Knot Bun. The half up half down is a fun-loving look, the perfect day time hairstyle that shows off gorgeous strands with no extra fuss.
Goes Well With Castanha Concentrated Oil. This multi-tasking oil helps control frizz and boost shine. Bonus: you can also use to hydrate nails.
2. Fuji Rock, Japan (July 26th-July 28th)
People come from all over Asia and the world to attend Asia’s biggest alternative musical festival, Fuji Rock. It holds the record-breaking number of over 100,000 attendees in 2005 and happens at Naeba Ski Resort, where rock and electronic music echo through nature, inviting over 200 Japanese and international musicians to show their talents. Its focus on the interaction between music and nature inspires its conservational efforts of using cut timber from forest maintenance and gathering 300 volunteers to build and maintain a natural boardwalk every year.
Our ideal hairdo for Fuji Rock? The Classic Fishtail Ponytail. A fishtail keeps your hair sleek, held back and still looking amazing as you listen to rock and EDM.
Goes well with Castanha Multi-Benefit Primer. It strengthens and smooths out your hair while boosting its shine. Keep your ponytail looking sleek and shiny throughout Fuji!
3. Lollapalooza, US (August 1st- August 4th)
This tongue twister of a name is one of the most sought-out festivals of the season. It's dotted with recycling bins, composting stations, and water-filling spots that have saved over 1.5 million plastic bottles, as part of its Rock & Recycle Program. It serves as one of the most popular platforms for non-profits, political groups, and various visual artists. It offers alternative rock, heavy metal, punk rock, hip hop, and of course electronic music. A festival full of crazy looks and themes involving lights and colors.
For Lollapalooza, we recommend the Bohemian Crown. A charming do that shows your face and your luscious locks. You can even add a pierced ponytail for a surprise.
Goes well with Patauá Restorative Hair Oil. Whatever surprise you decide on, this oil will strengthen and protect your hair from heat damage and will add shine to your braids.
4. Green Man, UK (August 15th-August 18th)
As the name suggests, Green Man upholds a green lifestyle and encourages festival-goers to join them. With the Brecon Beacons as backdrop, this independent held music and arts festivals pushes attendants to bring biodegradable wares, re-usable drinking bottles, and prohibits tent pegs and glitter. In their efforts to prevent the damage caused by microplastic, they have also shifted a focus to collecting unwanted camping equipment post-festivals and donate them to refugees worldwide. This festival screams green and encourages you to not only enjoy nature but embrace it!
A more natural look fits well the vibe of this indie event. The Timeless Beachy Hair with a Twist. The messy beach waves are a classic festival hairstyle since the 70s. IT JUST WORKS. We love a little plot twist with an actual twist to the side to keep the hair from your face!
Goes well with Murumuru Reconstructive Hair Mask. This hair mask is packed with luscious Brazilian murumuru that keeps textured or curly hair nourished and shine!
5. Burning Man, US (August 26th- September 2nd)
This iconic American festival is the final blast of the season. Since 1986, it has solidified its 10 preservation principles, based on “leaving no trace”. It emits such a powerful culture around the globe through art, communal effort, and several individual acts of self-expression. Its message is so impactful that a former group of attendees started a nonprofit organization, Black Rock Solar, that installed a 30kW solar array that has been donated to the festival’s neighboring town. The organization provides low-cost, high-quality clean energy services, generating funds to support educational programs and community clean energy projects. Want to get inspired? Participants assist in co-creating the magic of Black Rock City, a metropolis dedicated to art and community.
Guaranteed to keep you cool from the Nevada Desert and still looking your best, the Ballerina Bun enhances any look and brings out any personality.
Goes Well With Patauá Strengthening Hair Tonic. Adding this little Amazonian twist to your BunZ will promote hair health from roots to ends and strengthen your hair before you put it up in a bun!
