Lush to feature at Bluedot Festival for the first time!

Thursday July 21st – Sunday July 24th, Jodrell Bank Observatory

From Thursday 21st July to Sunday 24th July 2022, festival goers at Bluedot Festival will be able to freshen up and feel lusher than they arrived by visiting Lush’s various activations throughout the event, set in the Jodrell Bank Observatory, Cheshire.

The Lush ‘Shampoo Bar’ bar

A chance to champion Lush’s packaging-free, plastic-free and self-preserving invention: the small but mighty Shampoo Bar. First invented by Lush co-founder Mo Constantine 35 years ago, the shampoo bar comes to the rescue of festival goers who are desperate to wash their hair!


After a consultation with one of our HairLab experts, choose the shampoo bar and conditioner that’s right for you, have your hair washed on one of our luxury salon chairs, and then head over to the Self-Styling area which includes hairdryers, straighteners and fresh handmade styling products. Specialists will be on hand to offer advice and get you achieving the locks you always longed for! 

Take your shampoo bar home in a lovely tin that can be reused over and over again. Treatments normally last between 15-30mins, depending on hair type. The Lush ‘Shampoo Bar’ bar also contains a small shop to purchase naked haircare, hairbrushes and various lifestyle items.

Booking is available via the Bluedot website and in person at the festival.

£12 / 17:00-20:00 Thursday 21st /  08:00-20:00 Friday 22nd-Sunday 24th

The No H2O Menu by Lush Hairlab

Situated just in front of the Lush ‘Shampoo Bar’ bar, Lush are delighted to bring the team from the Liverpool HairLab over to Bluedot.

Lush HairLab are passionate about working with your specific hair type to achieve your festival look! They’ve designed some fest-tastic hair styles using Knot Wraps (Lush’s ethical, sustainable and downright beautiful answer to giftwrap). Knot Wraps can be re-used over and over for a number of purposes – a hair accessory being just one of those. You’ll get to keep your Knot Wrap after your hair is professionally styled and explore its endless uses at home! Great for wrapping around your head to protect you from the sun at festivals … or for wrapping around your tent pole to make yours more recognisable! 

There are two choices to have your hair styled with your Knot Wrap…

Braids for Days: Protect your hair and let your creativity shine through!

Party Pony: Take your classic ponytail and make it party ready!

£7 / 09:00-18:00, Friday 22nd-Sunday 24th

Booking is available via the Bluedot website and in person at the festival.

The Meteor Showers

The Meteor Showers are Bluedot’s premium, paid-for shower, toilet and pamper facility within their general campsite. Lush are collaborating with the Meteor Showers by helping festival-goers achieve the mood they want to be in through consultation and product choices. Want to feel joyful? Rose Jam shower gel might be for you. Or if feeling refreshed is what you’re after, you could try some Dirty Springwash. There’s eight moods to choose from and Lush has also left an abundance of fragrances, body lotions, toner waters and more in the ‘pamper station’ area.

Lush hope to see you at the festival!  Remember to take only photos and leave only footprints, and make great memories!
