Girls look splendid at Splendour

FESTIVAL hair getting you down?

Once upon a time, there were certain things a girl had to sacrifice to the party gods when she camped at an outdoor music festival. But not any more.

Spotless make-up, clean toenails and a decent frizz-free hairdo.

Splendour in the Grass organisers have introduced the perfect cure-all for the festival-going girl’s beauty woes – a day spa.

It’s all part of the Very Small Mall – a new dimension to the festival – where a girl can shop until she drops, have a make-over and get her hair done.

“This is the most amazing thing I have ever heard of,” Tarryn Bunworth, a girl from Melbourne suffering from festival hair, said.

“I was so excited when I heard about the day spa. It was the first thing my friends and I wanted to do when we got to the festival. It’s the first thing I have spent any money on.

“When you go to a music festival, you just know you will end up with a mass of frizz on top of your head. I can’t tell you how happy I am that those days are over – I will have decent hair today.”

It’s not only your hair that can get a complete make-over at the day spa.

You can also enjoy a pampering massage, a soothing hot spa or a full make-over.

Then once your beauty concerns have been dealt with, drop by General Pants Co to check out the latest range of jeans by cult label, Ksubi.

That’s right – you can now buy a $300-plus pair of jeans at an outdoor music festival.

Or perhaps your Havaianas, the world-famous thongs from Brazil, need replacing.

Not to worry. They have a store full of thongs made in every colour of the rainbow.

“You can even update your wardrobe with designer labels,” Ms Bunworth said.

“It’s more than a music festival – it’s about lifestyle now.”
