Festival season has officially started for me, as Wireless was my first of the Summer. I absolutely love festivals, from camping in inches of mud to day festivals. Although it's always better when you get invited by VO5 to join them at Wireless on the Saturday just gone...free drinks, food, music and meeting some awesome people, whats not to like. Plus a UK Garage favourite was playing (or is it officially called Old School Garage these days!), if it is - it means I'm officially 'old school' myself as I grew up during the rise of UK Garage and Aiya Napa. Yes, it was Craig Davvviiiiddd playing Rewind, 7 Days and of course What's Your Flava oooooooooooo.
VO5 for me is synonymous with my 20's and like many men out there their 30's and 40's too. Come to think about it, at what age do men stop putting product in their hair? VO5 is certainly my go-to hair product brand, it helps that they are sold everywhere and their collection encompasses every hair type possible. Throughout the history of my hair, I have used a few of the VO5 products extensively, the first one and still my favourite is VO5 Texture Rework Fibre Putty. I often use this one when my hair is slightly longer as with this putty you can manipulate your hair in any direction, for looks that can be as diverse as your music taste and style. I then went on to use the VO5 Extreme Style MattPaste - this paste gives a firmer matt finish but still possible to restyle throughout the day. Finally and my latest favourite is the VO5 Texture FunkyShaper, it is easy to apply, water based and feels soft in your hair, yet you can still carve and mould into different funky styles.
When arriving at Wireless, immediately opposite the main entrance was the 'VO5 Head's Up Styling Station' - it would be rude not to visit! You can pick between 3 of their festival-inspired hair styles and #DiscoverYourStyle - a perfect time to try something a little bit different. Mark (Thommo) shown above took the seat to see if the VO5 hair stylists could work their magic with his slightly thinning mane (sorry pal!).
The rest of the day was spent drinking a lot of Somersby cider, eating Jamaican jerk chicken and listening to awesome music. I really did have a great time, any festival that serves cider and Jamaican food is a winner in my eyes. Next festival stops are Reading Festival & South West Four...see you all there.
