The very important and worthy subject of Festival Hair

I usually let my hair dry naturally and then it looks ok that day. Thereafter if I want it to look nice I have to straighten i each day. Am going to festival and will not have straighteners, so, shall I

a) wash and straighten it before I go, and have messy but mostly straight hair until Monday

b) wash and leave it and have it look ok on first day then shit for 3 days

or c) wash it and twiddle it all up in curly bits while it dries, so it looks big and mad for 4 days. This option will look a bit birdsnest by day 4, but at least it looks as if I maybe meant it to look that way, whereas the other two just look like I have got stuck in a field with no styling implements.

I am tending towards c.

I can't Do Hair

as you may have noticed hmm

plaits etc are a mystery to me

handlemecarefully Thu 13-Sep-07 22:53:22

fecking boring and staid option - how about a nice alice band my love?

Actually I do like the plaits suggestion - you must know someone who could do that for you?

MamaG Thu 13-Sep-07 22:54:13

oh God don't do an alice band!! Big curly mad hair sounds great, IMO.

oooooh I know, make the wicker pig into a hat!

PodPast Thu 13-Sep-07 22:54:41

i wonder if it's the endoftheroad? i am going too. hadn't considered my hair... more whether my enormous tent will be embarrassing at a festival.

harpsichordcarrier Thu 13-Sep-07 22:54:53

handlemecarefully Thu 13-Sep-07 22:55:54
