Xhale Salon and Spa offers glitter and gemstone makeup to complete festival looks. Rock out this year with one of these 5 hot festival trends.

Boho Chic

Celebrate  your Boho soul with a simple floral crown and natural locks. A simple floral crown is a great way to accessorize without having to go over the top. Choose bright colored flowers that match your outfit, or add a little sparkle by dusting your hair and floral headband with some glitter. The natural locks make for an easy and manageable hairdo while you are dancing the night away to your favorite bands.  Natural wavy hair is a hot way to go Boho. That messy beach wave is always stylish, but this year try a messy braid. Braids are trendy and are easy to maintain throughout a festival day.The more you dance the messier the look the more Boho you have become!

Rock the Metallic

If you’re looking to bring out your  inner rocker, than metallic accents, bandannas and dark liners are for you. Use a metallic eye shadow to make your eyes pop and complete the look with a heavy, dark, abstract liner. You can use a bandanna or scarf to set off  a messy ponytail or use as an accessory around the neck. Add a little something extra with glitter on your highlight points, such as your collarbone, shoulders, or even your hair. Compliment your rocker look with some added color to your hair and lips. Tipped hair is hot right now, and gives you an edgy look without committing to a full-color change. Bright and bold colors on the lips gives you an edgy look.
