Electric Picnic and Pink Hair

image

Hey everyone,

I hope you are all well. I’m just back from a brilliant weekend at Electric Picnic. This was my first year attending and was a birthday present from my sister. It was such a good weekend and I’m already considering booking again. The highlight for me had to be Years and Years who played an absolute banger on Saturday night. The whole set up for EP is fantastic and there is so much to see and do, from the fun fair to the pop up hair salons on pamper lane, it really has something for everybody.

We did the camping in style and booked a Podpad which I will be doing a post about next week so be sure to keep an eye out for that if roughing it isn’t your style. I will be explaining how we booked and all of the VIP access we got too.

This particular post is all about my EP style and my favourite OOTD from the weekend. There’s something about a festival that really brings out the creative stylist in all of us. It’s an excuse to try out trends that you might otherwise shy away from. This time around for me it was all about pink hair! This is a look I’ve been dying to try for ages. I themed the hair with blue lips and chrome nails and an outfit that was perfect for the weekend.

I hope you enjoy this look.

Until next time,

The main feature of this look is the over sized vintage shirt. It’s actually an old shirt belonging to my Dad that he was planning to give away. I saw it and knew I had to keep it! I’ve themed it up with an orange crop top and a denim skirt both from Primark. A denim skirt is  one of the most versatile pieces of clothing that you can pack for a festival. They can be worn with boots like I’ve done in this look or with a pair of wellies if it rains. My boots are a pair of Damisi boots from All Saints.

The choker is from Topshop and adds a bit of fun to the look. Chokers and pom poms are really hot right now so when I saw this I had to have it!

The dye I used for my hair is from Bleach London and is the colour Rose. It’s a semi permanent colour that says it washes out in two to ten washes. It washed out of my hair in one wash. I was happy with this however because it means I can use it again for a quick colour change at the weekend and not have to worry about having pink hair on Monday! Perhaps it would last longer in someone else’s hair. It works in light blonde, highlighted or bleached hair. I put it in for 15 minutes, then rinsed it out. I was really impressed with the colour. My hair is bleach blonde so this is why I got such a strong pink.

My lipstick is from the new Mac Troll range in the colour Midnight Troll. I loved wearing this colour as it went really well with my hair and was such a fun festival lipstick.

My nails were done in Nails on Wicklow Street, Dublin and the colour is a base black shellac with a chrome powder on top. Shellac is €30 and the chrome is an extra €10.
