Festival beauty and fashion looks continue to evolve beyond the expected bohemian and rock references to include creatively led and experimental concepts.

This goes hand-in-hand with the increase in the variety of music genres, visual artists and headline acts across key festivals worldwide. 

South Africans are taking these global festivals trends onto the next level, with a flavour of local culture.

Here are a few trendy ideas to try out.

Hair Crowns

Inspired by the artistic hairstyles worn by African tribes. Bold and elaborate, braided and wrapped.

Head gear

With the rich culture of South Africa, it only makes sense that head pieces would be where most creativity lies. Turbans are a good stand out followed by hats.
