Festival hair that lasts all day!
We will appreciate festivals more than ever, and we’ll go crazy if we get the chance to visit them again. Reason enough to go for the full glam look! And while we have ALL the time to think about looks, we’d love to help you with that!
A top look requires a lot of time and effort: What should you wear, what is the weather like, how do you do your hair, and how for god’s sake will it stay in place all day? Unfortunately we can’t do much about the weather, and you will have to pick your own clothes. But, of course we can help you with your hair! In fact, we recently started using our own tools, tips and tricks to make sure your hair stays in place.
First of all, we’d like to take a look with you to see which set of extensions will be suitable for you. Which one meets your needs and expectations and suits you best. Hair extensions are a expensive purchase, and that is the exact reason why we would like to help you as good a s we can. So feel free to send us a message if you need help.

Would you rather find out for yourself first? Take a look at our blog “Help, Which set of clip-in extensions should I choose?”. There is also a possibility to order colour samples so you can see the colour in real life. The page “Tips for finding your perfect Zascha color match.” is also very helpful! Here are 3 must-haves for a festival hairdo!
Tip: At Coachella and on social media you always see everyone parading around with beautiful full beach waves, but to be honest, at a real (good) party it is nothing like that. Think beer showers and dixi visits! That’s why it might be more convenient to put your hair up halfway!
Okay, you’re ready!
If all goes well we were able to help you out, and you got your set in time for your party. Because we know; “Life is a party, but you have to hang the garlands yourself.” Or in this case, “hang in there”! Good preparation is half the battle, especially if you’re going to a festival / party, we recommend the roots of your hair to tease, and a small pinch of volume powder to apply. This ensures that the clips have a good grip, and do not slide so easily. It is best to do this weft by weft.

Again, a good start is half the battle. It is important that when you are going to do your hair your hair is dry. Besides volume powder, you can also opt for a volume mouse. A tip from the profs is to apply volume mousse after washing and blow dry thoroughly. This makes your hair a little stiffer so that curls and updos stay in place better.
“By lightly combing out the curl with a soft brush you can make it just a little bit cooler!”
The smaller the curl, the longer it will last. With our various large Max Pro Curling irons you can create endless hairstyles. We always recommend not to set the curling iron hotter than 180 degrees, and always use a heatprotector. Both for your own hair, and for your extensions. Tip: By combing out the curl lightly with a soft brush you can make it just that little bit more cool! Below 3 killer festival looks that you must try!
1. Extensions curls
Before you put the curling iron into your hair, it is a good idea to spray the tuft with hairspray and then secure it with a bobby pin. You can read more tips on this in our blog.
2. fishbone braid
Would you rather put your hair up or braid it in? It may take some practice, but how cool is this blog about the fishbone braid! Compliments 100% guranteed!
3. Casual braid
Do you prefer the casual boho look? We have a whole blog dedicated to that too! By the way, we’d love to see your creations pass by. So don’t forget to tag us!
When you’re recuperating while your advil is still dissolving in your bloody mary, you’re obviously not waiting for obligations or aftercare. If you have good products, this is not necessary at all. Wash the set (after approximately 12x wear or 1 festival) with Alterna Cavier Moisture Shampoo, and rinse with Alterna Cavier Moisture Conditioner. The set is extra grateful if you let the conditioner soak in for 5 to 10 minutes.
Did you make a big deal out of it? Then some extra care is never wrong. Take that nice break and put your set and your hair in the Alterna Bond Repair Mask. Leave this mask on for 10 minutes, then gently rinse the wefts, and pat towel dry. You will see that they shine again like never before!
