Style Watch: Glastonbury 2016
It’s being hailed as the muddiest Glastonbury ever, but this accolade didn’t stop festival-goers from putting in the effort when it came to their style. As always, there were plenty of well-known faces amongst the crowds and now, having caught up with performances from Adele and Coldplay, attention is turning to the celebrity hair and fashion from the weekend.
For the most part, celebrities played it safe by opting for tousled, undone hair that could survive a downpour or two. For those camping away from the VIP, we imagine that dry shampoo and texturising sprays played a major part in many of these ‘dos. But which looks were our favourite? Read on to find out who nailed Glasto style despite the elements..
With a bodycon lycra jumpsuit, sparkly jacket and on-trend round sunglasses, Daisy Lowe exuded old-school glam rock on day 3 of the festival. The model’s hair matched the ensemble perfectly, with a heavy, textured fringe and shaggy layers bringing a touch of the 70s to 2016 Glasto. This style of fringe is set to be huge for autumn/winter, so ask your hairdresser for this look if you want to get one step ahead.
Laura Whitmore was all about laidback style in bleached denim shorts, loose floral shirt and clashing leopard print bag. This was one of the more summery looks from Worthy Farm, but Laura sensibly still had a trusty black Parka constantly in reach. Like Daisy, Laura also left her long hair loose with a barely-there wave and her usual centre parting.
As you would expect, Jess went for a more extravagant style for her on-stage look than the humble audience members. Her trademark red hair was packed with volume in mermaid waves, with two plaited buns giving the look a very youthful, on-trend edge. The half-up style was contrasted with a green sequin trouser suit and black bralet.
In keeping with the trend for low-maintenance hair, singer Charlie XCX opted for a casual low pony for her jet black locks. With the front layers left loose, she ensured that attention was on her statement shades and studded leather skirt. Black Doc Martens and a casual tee added a grungy edge.
It takes a special sort of woman to pull off a purple anorak, but of course festival queen Alexa Chung can manage it. As a pioneer of understated style, Alexa teamed the Hunter waterproof with the a muted knitted dress and the must-have muddy Hunter wellies. Her bob was left relaxed, with outgrown fringe swept to the sides.
