BEAUTY: FESTIVAL / BOHO HAIR HOW-TO >

While it’s mainly smoke and mirrors today (as I live vicariously through others on social media who actually attend these festivals!), I do love me some boho-chic styling. It’s all about messy hair, beautiful braids and total creative license to go nuts – with colour, flowers and just about anything really! I’ve included some of the products Mhairi McQueen used to style my hair with, my gawwwwgeous flower crown from Mint & Melon (who also make head pieces for spring racing ladies!), and of course some #AMBERFILLERUPINSPO for festival/boho hair. Enjoy!

HAIR & MAKE-UP: Zoe Karlis (MUA) & Mhairi McQueen from Koh in Elwood (hair stylist)


MY FLOWER CROWN: This stunning flower crown was hand crafted by the very talented Keahny from Mint and Melon, and she also made a matching-mini one for MG (who will be wearing it on Stakes Day!).

PRODUCTS & PREP: I think I secretly like ‘boho hair’ because ‘boho hair’ means the wilder/crazier the better! Ha, which also = bed hair, being too lazy to brush your hair, day 78 hair… Yep, as high maintenance as I am, I’m really so not! Gosh, that was very poor use of the English language, but you get my drift. 

Mhairi used the following on my hair: Kevin Murphy Resort Spray, Kevin Murphy Fresh Hair, Kevin Murphy Powder Puff and  Kevin Murphy Session Spray. We also used a large curling tong, as well as leaving some bits to fly rogue! 

Ideally start this look with ‘dirty’ hair, as this will add texture and be easier to style and manipulate. Clean/fresh hair may be too soft – alternatively, just add more styling products to prep

Add a 20inch Halo Weft (Amazing Hair is the brand we used) – obviously it doesn’t need to be this long, but remember if you are using a curling wand/iron it will rise

Then use the Kevin Murphy Resort Spray and Fresh Hair to prep all the hair (any dry shampoo is great to add grit!)

Once happy with texture prep, use a large tong to add movement and volume – these don’t need to be perfectly symmetrical. Add some braids/plaits/buns – go nuts!

To finish, apply Kevin Murphy Bedroom Hair/Powder Puff and some hair-spray for hold
