Get your head in the game – It’s festival season

 
The sun is out once again, and no doubt it’s got you itching to hit the fields and the many festivals you’ve bought tickets for.
 
Festivals have long been a staple of British summer, so much so that Croatia, Barcelona and Miami, have all had a cack.
 
Yet with great power comes great sartorial responsibility and though Kate Moss has set the hotpant/welly standard, there is still so much fun to be had.
 
Gone are the days when you can stick on the same daisy chain for three days (although you still can’t fault a floral headband); from flat caps and plaits, to bandanas and bucket hats, festival season is the time to let go, have fun and show a bit of personality.   

 

Revived. The Scrunchie

       
The Scrunchie has been staging a steady comeback and I’m all for it. Ashish championed the nineties classic as a way to revive the top bun, although it also looks great at the end of a plait.

Hairbands

Hairband naturally evoke schoolgirl memories and connotations, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. When you’re up to no good in the portaloos it’s nice to get a glimpse of yourself in the mirror looking sweet; a winner for that alone.
