Hair Trends: Coachella Festival Edition

During April we’ve seen the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival come and go. If you experienced real FOMO watching all the action on social media, don’t stress! With the upcoming festival season about to kick off in Australia (hands up if you’re going to Splendour In The Grass this year!) we want to share what trends we will be seeing this year.

When you think of Coachella immediately you picture girls and guys making rebellious fashion choices (like James Charles’ daring cowboy chaps look) or more traditional Californian style, think of a boho gypsy with flowers in their hair. However, this year expect to see a real change from the stereotype!

Pastel Hues

I spy with my little eye, something that is a pastel rainbow! The pastel trend coming back strong for the festival season. Blues, pinks, greens, and oranges, just about any light colour will do. If you’re not feeling so daring to dye your own hair, try a wig like Jenn Im!

Loose Braids

Does anyone remember doing fishtail braids in school? Well, it’s time to go back memory lane to revive the trend! Plat some pigtails or even just a couple of small braids amongst some wavy hair, you’ll definitely have that Californian vibe going on.

Gritty Textured Waves

Can we mention another Californian classic? If you love a good beach wave, then this is the update you need to try! Imagine hair that has dry aired after a dip in the ocean. To get the look you’ll want to use a texturizing spray, hairspray and curling iron for this one. But if you were blessed with natural curls you can simply shape the curl with clips, the best part? No heat required!

Barrettes, Butterflies, and Beads

More is more! Grab whatever hair accessories you have (even those mini butterfly clips you once wore in the 90s) because you’ll want to get on this trend. Literally, put as many bobby pins as you can in your hair and you’re done! For those looking for something more stylish, try the trendy pearl hair clip. Just like the braids, you’ll be making life a whole lot easier by keeping the hair out of your face.

Not into hair clips or bands? We recommend being sun safe and wearing a hat. From bucket to wide-brimmed straw hats, the choices are endless and fashionable.

The Half Updo

No, we are not talking about the Snooki from Jersey Shore. What we’re talking about is putting a bun or two on top with the rest of your locks free flowing in the desert wind. Very practical keeping the majority of your hair out of that beautiful face so you don’t miss a moment.
