It’s been festival madness at torikeane.com the past few days! Ahead of festival season I decided to recreate all of my favourite festival hair looks and put them out there on Ireland Am and the Sunday world magazine for all you gorgeous festival goers to copy, here’s some footage:
SUNDAY WORLD MAGAZINE
For Sunday World I recreated 3 looks to carry through a 3 day festival and we shot on location in the beautiful Black Amber Salon in Templeogue.
Day no.1: Unicorn braid
Step 1: Start off with wavy hair. I would sleep on braids or use a wand to get a tousled bohemian look.
Step 3: Section off the centre of your hair from above your brow arch on both sides and clip the rest of your hair away.
Step 4: Start your braid at the front in 3 sections and proceed with a French (or Dutch) braid working back.
***Top tip: Use Mane n Tail conditioner as your styling product to protect and nourish your hair instead of hair drying gel!
Step 3: Secure with an elastic band. To funk it up you could use some colour spray or hair chalk through the ends too.
Day no.2: Messy ponytail
Step1: If you’re good with braids and your sides are getting a little fuzzy, braid from your ear back on both sides and secure with pins.
Step 2: Using your Mane n tail conditioner again as gel pull all your loose hair into a sleek high ponytail. Backcomb the base of your ponytail to add volume.
Step 3: Scrunch your waves with Mane n tail detangler spray to defrizz.
Day no.3: Minnie Mouse buns.
Step 1: Firstly, spray your hair with Mane n tail detangler so its free of knots. Divide into two sections on either side of your head.
Step 2: Make 2 really high pony tails on each side.
Step 3: Wrap the pigtails into a bun shape and using bobby pins secure the ends onto the head.
You can decorate with different clips if you want, I used a gold vine through the centre of mine. Available Here.
Ireland AM TV3
For Ireland AM I stuck with the braids but one of my personal favourites (throwback to #fashionrelief)……the Halo Braid!
Click the links to watch the videos:
Myself and Derrick Carberry teamed up with model Rebecca to recreate our take on festival chic, using lots of jewels….. and lots of bling…… and extensions……. and stickers……..let’s just say we had A LOT of fun showing off our creative sides!
A HALO BRAID IS ONE BRAID THAT RUNS ALL AROUND THE HEAD CLOSE TO THE HAIRLINE AND CAN BE ACHIEVED ON ANY LENGTH HAIR.
YOU CAN EITHER DUTCH BRAID OR FRENCH BRAID A HALO, I FIND A DUTCH BRAID MORE EFFECTIVE AS ITS RAISED INSTEAD OF FLAT.MAKE SURE YOUR HAIR IS TANGLE FREE OR YOU WILL NEVER GET THROUGH YOUR BRAID. I USED MANE N TAIL DETANGLER WITH MY GHD OVAL DRESSING BRUSH Currently on sale here! THIS GETS THE HAIR SO SILKY ANS SOFT. IF YOUR HAIR IS FLUFFY OR LAYERED I RECOMMEND USING L’OREAL STYLISTA BRAID MILK Currently on sale here! TOO.
START BEHIND THE EAR WITH A 3 STRAND BRAID BUT INSTEAD OF BRAIDING OVER EACH STRAND WITH YOUR FINGERS LIKE A FRENCH BRAID GO UNDERNEATH, SO ITS LIKE AN INSIDE OUT FRENCH BRAID.
CONTINUE THE BRAID LIKE A FRENCH TAKING A PIECE OF HAIR FROM EACH SIDE AS YOU GO UNTIL YOU RUN OUT OF HAIR AND END UP WITH A PLAIT.
SECURE THE END OF YOUR BRAID WITH A THIN ELASTIC BAND AND THEN WRAP THE FREELY HANGING END OF THE BRAID AROUND YOUR HEAD TO MEET THE BEGINNING OF YOUR DUTCH BRAID, HIDE THE END AND PIN.
WHEN YOU GET THE HANG OF IT YOU COULD CLIP IN A COLOURED HAIR EXTENSION OR ADD SOME STICK ON JEWELS LIKE I DID.
