Festival Hair

As Coachella kick-starts the festival season, we brace ourselves for an exciting summer ahead. And AG is here with an arsenal of haircare and styling tips so you can create the perfect mane moments at all the festivals from Bonnaroo to Sasquatch.

The Braid

A festival favourite, the braid is the failsafe style, perfect for all hair types, and the mosh-pit. Start with Simply Dry Shampoo to refresh your roots. Our Dry Shampoo also comes in four flavours to seamlessly match any hair colour and touch-up your roots between salon visits – and best of all, no flakey residue. Next, emulsify Texture Gloss through hands, and rub into hair. This will add incredible shine and frizz control to your style, while providing assistance in the braiding process. Create a sleek fishtail braid, or a loose French braid, tucking your ends underneath. Your imagination is your only limitation.

Classic Topknot

The topknot is a style saver when your hair is misbehaving or time isn’t on your side. Flip your hair upside down and spray Tousled Texture through your mane. Tousled Texture will add volume, movement and definition to your hair. Collect your hair into a high, loose pony, and wrap your hair around the elastic, securing with a bobby pin. Lightly pull at the top of your hair to create some texture and volume, and pull out some face-framing pieces for an undone look. Finish off with a spritz of Ultradynamics for a style that lasts you well past sunset.

Effortless Waves

The Texture category was made for moments like this! These unfussed products are simple to use and work with your hair’s natural texture to achieve a truly effortless look. Starting with Sea Spray, work product through damp hair, twisting sections with your finger and letting it air dry. Sea Spray also acts as a great refresher for second or third day hair. Once dry, spray hair with Tousled Texture, coaxing, lifting and scrunching hair until you’ve created your ideal texture. For additional hold, body and shine, spray over finished style. The Texture category also comes in a travel-friendly pack, perfect for your festival-trekking trips.

Hat Hair

Begin by applying BB Cream to damp hair, adding benefits such as moisture, shine, UV protection and humidity resistance. Let hair air dry, and let your natural texture peek through. Throw on your favourite wide brimmed hat to protect your hair and skin against the sun, and to add a festival-chic vibe to your look.
