Every spring, fashionistas from all around the world make their way to the golden desert sands of Indigo California in anticipation of the music, art, and fashion event of the year. We're talking about none other than Coachella, where the hottest summer trends make their appearances first. To keep a piece of the magic all year round, try out these hairstyles that you can rock on a daily basis.
French Braid with a Twist
The braid is a fashion staple, perfect for every occasion. It's versatile in every sense, rocked from the runway to the streets in many ways, shapes, and forms. Walking through the flashing lights and art displays at Coachella, you'll spot the classic French braid everywhere, each one with its own unique twist. Taking a lesson from the most stylish gals on the globe, you too can rock braids on the daily, changing from uniform, to messy, to sexy. For an everyday look with a bit of pizazz, add a few leather or colorful cords into each section before you braid it up, tying them together at the end and letting the excess hang.
Dressed Up Ponytail
Those with high cheek bones and a playful attitude look fab with a ponytail. You can create this look, using your imagination to achieve the look you want. This style works best with hair that's washed, blow dried, and straightened. Then, all you have to do is add a hair tie and go! But if you want, you can curl your ponytail, embellish it with metal rings, or even add glitter to take it to the next level!
Long Live Space Buns
Who knew that Zenon's intergalactic look would show up again? Our favorite supernova girl hairstyle made its appearance at Coachella in 2018, taking the fashion world by storm. Some crazy festival creations might not work as an everyday look, you can tone it down and create space buns that pair with summer dresses, tanks, and swimsuits. You can also try out a half-up style, placing two perfectly twirled buns on top for a fun and flirty version of this far-out updo.
Inspired by the sun-kissed hair of California girls, flowy waves caught wind years ago. Its no-fuss, effortless- yet-luxe look makes it suitable for every occasion. Sporting beachy waves daily takes a bit of heat, a little product, and a lot of tousling. Use your fingers to scrunch a bit for extra volume and you've got #hairgoals hair!
The Messy Bun
Messy buns are fun no matter how you wear them. Up high and down low, or embellished and with jewels, you can do it all. Wearing this look every day takes a bit of handwork as you twist, turn, tug, and pull until you get the perfect look. Add a metallic headband or a few embellished bobby pins for a hint of sparkle that will remind you of your magical times lost in the deserts of California, even if you're stuck in the office.
