Fun Hair Ideas for Outdoor Music Festivals

While Pitchfork Music Festival has come and gone this past weekend, we still have Lollapalooza, Riotfest, and some other summer music festivals to look forward to in Chicago. If you’re planning on enjoying one of these festivals, here are some ideas for fun hair styles that would work well in the festive environment.

Bright Colors

From pink to bright green to blue, bright colors have been really popular this summer. If you’re looking to stand out in the crowd at a festival, dying your hair a bright color should do the trick.

Go Big

Big hair is fun. Let your hair out and add some volume for a playful look. Big hair can get pretty hot though, so consider how hot it will be outside if you’re thinking about going big.


Add a bandana or flowers to your hair to give yourself a 60s flower child look.


Hats are easy and help keep you cool on a hot day. Rocking a big hat can be a lot of fun too! If you want a super easy look, sport a cool baseball cap!


If you have long hair, putting your hair in loose ponytails can look great and keep you cool.

When deciding what to do with your hair for a festival, be aware of the amount of time you’ll be outside and how hot it will be outside. While we all want to look our best, your festival hair style should be easy to manage so you can enjoy yourself!
