5 Fun Activities To Try This Bank Holi-YAY

With the bank holiday weekend fast approaching, we can’t decide what we’re more excited for – to eat our body weight in Easter Eggs (calories don’t count at Easter!) or to have a four day weekend to spend with our gal pals! We’ve got the ultimate list of girly activities to keep you entertained this bank holi-YAY, from glamping to Easter Egg Hunting with a twist, HQhair has got your covered.

1. Go glamping with your gals

Hear us out here. We are not talking about cold, muddy camping that leaves you with broken nails and more exhausted than when you arrived- we would not do that to you! Glamping can appeal to even the most tent-phobic of girls, from shabby chic bell tents to glamping pods with jacuzzis; they’re what your Insta feed is calling out for. It is the perfect bank holiday weekend activity, so grab your gals and take some marshmallows for roasting with a load of face packs and nail varnish; for the ultimate girly weekend.

2. Ladies that Spa

Calories don’t count at Easter, so make the most of it by testing out your baking skills over the bank holiday weekend. Put an Easter twist on your creation using Mini Eggs… chocolate on chocolate on chocolate sounds GREAT to us!

4. Easter Egg hunt with a twist

Why not have a grown-up Easter egg hunt this weekend? Get all of your gals together and hide little beauty treats around your garden or house (depending on the weather) for the ultimate girly scavenger hunt. This is the perfect Bank Holiday Monday activity for when everyone is sick of chocolate (us? Never!). Grab some little treats from HQhair, such as the OCC Lip Tars and the Real Techniques Core Collection (which you can separate to hide individually!) The perfect Easter activity for you and your gal pals.

5. Pardy

No bank holiday weekend is complete without a night out with your gals, but after indulging in aaaaaaallll of the Easter eggs, a bodycon dress is probably off the cards; but that shouldn’t keep you from the paaaardy! Put on some fake tan, smoke those eyes and contour those cheekbones so you can get ready to slay this bank holiday weekend, just make sure you leave the chocolate at home…
