Calling all Adelaidians – the festival season is upon us! From the Fringe, WOMADelaide, Oz Asia Festival and Adelaide Festival to all things musical like Groovin’ the Moo, we’re going to share some fun tips on how to look after yourself AND look your absolute best while you party the days and nights away at your desired festival event.
1. Dress comfortably
There’s nothing worse than being on your feet all day wearing shoes that don’t provide the required support that you need for your big day out. Opt for shoes that you know you’ll be comfy in all day, whether they’re a cute pair of strappy sandals or your beloved Converse sneakers, comfort should be your number one priority.
Hair in your face or stuck to your neck and make up that is a Kardashian contour cake can also affect said comfort levels throughout the festival. Try to avoid wearing heavy makeup and opt for a natural look with a bold lip to dress up your outfit to avoid foundation melting off of your face.
Festival braids or an up-style will work wonders to keep your locks away from your face and under control, try our Festival Braids or Going Loco Festival Buns available at any of our ten Fresh Hair & Body locations.
2. Drink responsibly
We all love a good pre drinking sesh with our mates before venturing out to the real deal, however it’s always important to remember that throwing up mid-festival on your friend’s shoes isn’t ideal. If you can, always have a bottle of water handy and space out your drinks to keep you from feeling like the Earth is spinning a hundred kilometres an hour.
3. Watch your valuables!
Amongst the buzzing atmosphere, it can be quite easy to lose track of what you’re doing, where you’re going and what you’ve brought with you. Try to avoid wearing any meaningful jewellery that may fall off or get lost in a busy crowd.
4. Be organised
Whether you’re seeing multiple Fringe shows on the same night or seeing three consecutive bands at Groovin’ the Moo, it always pays to be organised ahead of starting times. Try to arrive at your Fringe show a bit earlier to avoid rushing around and finding a park.
And of course, the most important tip of all – enjoy yourself! It’s not a new year in Adelaide without consecutive festivals taking over our beautiful city!
