Vanessa Hudgens’ Boho Braid


A post shared by Vanessa Hudgens (@vanessahudgens) on

Bohemian flowerchild braids are festival iconic, as demonstrated by Vanessa Hudgens, the literal queen of Coachella. This year, create your own version of the plait for a hairstyle that blends with everything from glitter boobs to midi-dresses.

Get the look:

  1. Rejuvenate roots with Oh Bee Hive! Dry Shampoo (trust us, after all the travel and time in the sun, your hair needs this).
  2. Braid your locks into two loose pigtails.
  3. Seal it all in with Hard Head Hairspray to make the style last all day.

And when you can’t even deal with your second-day festival hair, casual braids are a life saver for that greasy, tangled mess. Just don’t forget to accessorize by throwing a hat or crown on top!  

Kylie Jenner’s Sleek Bob


A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

Your locks may not be highlighter yellow, but rocking a straight, sleek bob like Kylie Jenner’s is the definition of festival ~edgy~. Wear with something grungy and punk or pair with a sophisticated dress for an elevated daytime outfit.

Get the look:

  1. Pre-festival, use a hot tool until your hair is straight and silky AF.
  2. Spritz with Headrush mist to bring out your color and give an overall gloss.
  3. Layer in Maxxed-Out spray to hold the straight style and protect hair from sun damage.

If you’re loving the style but feel it needs a little something more, don’t be afraid to incorporate color and glitter at the roots to give your hair extra shine.

Alessandra Ambrosio’s Beach Waves

Beach waves are festival classic, and there’s no wrong way to nail these casual curls. A carefree and easy style for any hair type, consider these tousled tresses your festival BFF.

Get the look:

  1. If you’re working with damp hair, start by working Small Talk, aka the thickifier of your dreams, through your hair.
  2. For dry hair, give your tresses a quick spray of Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo to give texture and keep your locks smelling fresh. 
  3. Scrunch your hair with your hands or leave in braids for a few hours to get wavy.

These waves will bring the beach to the concert – no hot tools needed when you’re in a middle of nowhere dessert.  

Emma Roberts’ Low-Maintenance Locks

Some of us just want to get up and go dance in front of the mainstage without having to pour hours into getting festival-ready. For lazy girls on the go, keep hair natural but chic with a little product.

Get the look:

  1. Leave hair natural post-shower or however it is when you wake up.
  2. Work in After-Party hair creme to tame fly-aways, cut the frizz and keep your lowkey look silky smooth. 
  3. Moisturize hair with just a touch of Superstar Queen For A Day thickening spray.

Cool girls everywhere will be proud of this effortless mop.

Katy Perry’s Short Crop


A post shared by KATY PERRY (@katyperry) on

Festival hair faces the challenge of a long weekend without showers, straighteners or curlers. For babes with a pixies and crops, we love Katy Perry’s example of embracing the funky and playing it cool with a simple spike and minimal product.

Get the look:

  1. Work Manipulator styling cream through wet or dry hair. The more you use, the more texture you get!
  2. Finish with Headrush for an all-over gloss and shine to last through the weekend.

Whichever style you opt for, don’t forget to pack lots of dry shampoo and hairspray – they work in every hair emergency and can basically stand in for perfume when you’re running low. Enjoy the concert and sunshine babes, and just remember that whenever you need styling inspo, your favorite celeb Instagram queens have got your back.
