Coachella is literally the kick off for summer festivities and is the perfect time to experiment and have fun with your hair. The desert heat makes this the perfect opportunity to try funky updos and braids that work great on dirty hair and can last well into the night. Follow along as we share our hair and beauty forecast for the season:

 

FUNKY BRAIDS + CORNROWS

Braids and cornrows are perfect for a festival! They tame the hair from humidity and there are so any fun options that give the hair a unique twist.

POPS OF COLOR

Add a few clip in extensions or wear a wig for a playful look sans commitment. Wanna get really wild? Try rainbow hair color or oil slick hair for a festive [mane]moment.

KNOTS + BUNS

Amp up your average pony by adding a knot. It’s a simple variation that gives major #hairgoals.

ADD AN ACCESSORY

This is the perfect opportunity to wear that bold hair accessory you may have been too timid to try. Pop it in natural hair texture for instant glam.

FLORAL-IZE

Yes, it’s been done, but floral accessories are always key for a festival. Attach silk or real flowers to bobby pins then pin randomly in the hair. If they don’t want to stick, spray your bobby pin with OUAI Soft Hairspray before you put in the hair for extra staying power.

HATS

Whether it’s a baseball hat or a sun hat, adding this screams cool.

THE TOPKNOT

Half up or all the way up, topknots are so simple to recreate on every hair type. If you’re refreshing day old hair, just spray Kardashian Beauty Dry Shampoo before tossing it up! Pro tip: Don’t brush the hair out before gathering into a topknot for an edgy, rocker finish.

HAIR TATTOOS

Flash tats aren’t just for your skin, add them to your hair for sun goddess flair. We love the ones from Scunci for our festival chic vibes.
