Essential Electric Picnic Must-haves

As summer draws to a close so does the festival season. Electric Picnic has been closing out summer parties since 2004 and has grown into one of the most stylish events of the year. Weather permitting that is. There is a real Glasto vibe at Picnic, from the eclectic line up to the potential wash out. The crowd is always an interesting bunch mimicking the style of the slightly alternative artists. This is the playground of real music lovers with a real sense of style. Forget the floral headbands and Daisy Duke shorts. Picnic is all about comfortably enjoying the festival while looking effortlessly cool.

September can be quite chilly, especially at night. With the last gig wrapping up at 5 am it's an idea to wrap up yourself. Summon your inner Liam Gallagher and pack yourself a Parka. Both practical and stylish, the Parka is an absolute festival essential. Team with an incredible hairdo and on trend accessories and you have style worthy of the festival queen herself, Kate Moss. 

As most of you will have to re join the rat race soon after, you won't want to commit to a hairstyle too outrageous. Temporary colouring is the perfect option for jazzing up your style in between shampoos. The Kevin Murphy Colour Bug is a wash in wash out temporary colour that will transform your hair in minutes and available from in 3 colours pink, purple and gold. 

Gold metallic temporary tattoos are one seriously hot trend this summer. Roll up the Parka sleeves and adorn your lower arms and hands with henna inspired designs. Joico K Pak Deep Penetrating Reconstructor limited edition is a reconstructing mask with free gold metallic tattoos. Perfect for having fun next weekend while treating your hair to a little TLC soon after. 

If subtlety is the aim of your game, try giving your blow dry the once over with Kevin Murphy Shimmer Shine. This lightweight shine mist is infused with tiny gold particles to give your hair, arms and legs a shimmering golden glow. That's right, your arms and legs are also privy to the same glow. Did I mention it smells amazing too? You will literally be beating them off with a stick. Your friends that is, off your shimmer shine.
