How to Survive Lollapalooza: the Hair Edit

Ah, Lollapalooza. Chicago’s answer to Coachella, Governor’s Ball, and Bonnaroo. Whether you love it or hate it – the four day festival brings out the city’s locals and tourists alike. I am not the person to turn to if you are looking for advice to stay hydrated, stay cool, or how to hit all of your favorite acts in one day. How I can help you is giving you all of the right hacks for flawless, festival hair all weekend long!

I’ve partnered up with Bed Head by TIGI to bring the best in their product line-up for flawless festival hair (is this already a term? I think it is, but we’re going to keep using it). I have loved Bed Head by TIGI for YEARS and I’d like to believe that a lot of you love them, too! They’re the perfect brand for a mix-and-match, play-and-go, carefree style. They are the perfect company to turn to right before a festival weekend.

One of the first products that I immediately latched onto when trying out products from Bed Head by TIGI was their Oh Bee Hive! Matte Dry Shampoo. I tend to have fine hair that gets very oily, very quickly, so extending any style requires dry shampoo – and I have tested a lot of them. The Oh Bee Hive! dry shampoo had a fantastic scent (major points) and it also really gripped each strand of hair. I didn’t need to let it sit for ages or brush it out incessantly to see instant lift and less oil.

My second Lolla must-have is, hands down, the Queen Beach Salt Spray. Most of the salt sprays that I have tried have more of an aerosol spray, but the spritz applicator on this bottle was a life saver. I didn’t feel like I was saturating a small portion of my hair (am I the only person who has this struggle with sea salt sprays?) and that I just needed two pumps to cover all of my hair in an even spritz. This is perfect for throwing on second-day hair right before you hit Grant Park for some fantastic separation and shine.

Of course, there are a ton of different options that I’d recommend from Bed Head by TIGI right before you head out on a four day festival weekend. Their After Party Spray and Masterpiece Shine Hairspray are always go-to’s in my beauty arsenal. You can get all of the perfect products at Ulta Beauty or!

Now… what are you doing this weekend? I’ll be spending this Friday  at the Bed Head Hotel! This incredible launch party is taking place at The Hard Rock Hotel on August 4th + 5th from 12 PM until 6 PM. There will be a Bed Head Style Bar, makeup & mani touch-ups, artist demos + a DJ booth, and more! 

Be sure to come out this weekend to see me at the Bed Head Hotel or head there yourself to check out everything new from Bed Head by TIGI and kick off Lollapalooza!
