The fashion at music festivals has become as important as the music. Instagram celebrities have been made solely by their ability to inspire the next trend or to interpret a current trend in a fresh and unique way. ACL is quickly approaching here in Austin, are you ready? If you haven’t gotten your outfits sorted out stop by STRUT on either South Lamar or South Congress, they have tons of breezy, chic, funky stuff that you can put together for a unique look. Another good option is SUNROOM which is indie-focused with new and vintage items. The great thing about creating a festival look is that your imagination can go crazy. Mixing glam pieces with boho pieces? Yes! Body paint? Yes! Full on Rock n roll? Yes! Once you have decided on your clothing and accessories it’s time to finish off your look. It’s not too late to pull your look together and Shag Austin hair stylists are here to help. Here is a list of the services we offer to help you stand out this year:
MERMAID STYLE HAIR
Bright and extreme colors are a fun way to make a statement, but the most now way to do it is with mermaid inspired colors. Soft purples, pinks, teals, and blues are fresh. Whether you choose some soft streaks, think light pink highlights, or overall color it is a fun festival choice and we can create a look specifically for you.
If you are not familiar, flash tattoos are gold or silver foil tattoos that look like jewelry. The best part is that they are jewelry that cannot be lost! A true bonus for me that means dancing with abandon and not spending one second crawling in the grass looking for a lost bracelet. It also means I can get the look of an upper arm cuff without any slipping or too tight gripping. At Shag we can create custom flash tattoos that will have you looking like a goddess on earth.
Hair feathers are attached like hair extensions, which means that they are attached to a few strands of hair and will last a few weeks. Each feather strand will have a few feathers and can be washed and styled as usual. Is there a more boho-rock n roll look than feathers? We have different colors and styles of feathers so you can go subtle or all out and it will be a completely custom and unique look just for you.
Would you rather go a little glam? Hair tinsel strands may be what you are looking for. A few strands peeking out will brighten up your look. A bunch of all over strands will have you looking like a retro Disco Queen. Tinsel strands will be knotted to a few strands of your hair and are also washable and can also be styled as usual. They should also last a couple weeks.
NATURAL CUT AND COLOR
The easiest way to look your best is with a fab cut and gorgeous color. At Shag we start with a perfect cut to match the shape of your face and your hair texture. A natural ombre (the progression of darker color at the roots to lighter ends) or sombre (exactly as it suggests, a subtle ombre) can be created by using a bayalage technique, which means hand painting the color.
Now that you know your options what are you waiting for? We are here and waiting to work with you to create your perfect festival look. Make sure each pic is Instagram worthy. Make your Snapchats epic! Call or go online to book your appointment today. 512.851.SHAG or shagaustin.com.
