As anyone who has been to a festival will know – and anyone going to one this summer will learn – the ability to disguise unwashed hair is key to perfecting that Sienna Miller look we all imagine when our booking tickets. Dry shampoo is, of course, a must, but there’s nothing like a large hair accessory to divert attention, add a touch of boho and, sometimes, just cover greasy roots. Go for a floral garland or bright turban for a 2014 twist.

A far cry from festival chic, an oversized vintage brooch is a quick way to add instant glamour to an evening look. Use to decorate an elegant up do, or sweep hair away from the face for a look that screams ‘old Hollywood‘. Accessories can be big or discreet (like this beauty from Erin Elizabeth) as long as they sparkle. Fabulous Darling!
