Festival (Hair) Style: My Weekend At Coachella
Last weekend I had an amazing time at the Coachella Music Festival! My girls and I danced, barbecued, swam and sang our faces off. Packing for Coachella is always fun because the vibe is very boho and eccentric, so it’s a good time to break out the cut-off shorts, crotchet tops, feathers, fringe and whatever else you fancy! It’s also an awesome opportunity to do something exciting with your hair and I’m just saying — my crew didn’t disappoint with our ‘dos.
Our Coachella-inspired styles are not only meant for music festivals but perfect for spring to summer transitional weather.
Beauty consultant Riawna Capri breaks down each of our looks:
Jules is currently growing out last year’s pixie cut. Her length right now is just right for a perfectly messy look. We like to piece it out, going light on the styling products for an effortless look with lots of movement. The more texture you have in your cut, the more movement your hair has.
Before we took off for the hot desert, we cooled down Paris’ pretty locks by lightening the tips using a technique called balayage. In the end, her hair looked naturally sun kissed. The lighter pieces around her face highlighted her beautiful features. This is a great way for everyone to get summer ready!
Morgan took her Coachella hair to the next level with something we coined the “dread-chella!” Inspired by Angelina Jolie in “Gone In 60 Seconds,” she wanted to do something edgy and way outside the box. And that she did! People were stopping us throughout the festival to comment on her hippie-esque ‘do. Dreadlocks are actually something you can easily do at home although the process takes time. There is a lot of teasing and twisting happening. Jules and I will be posting a more detailed post later for anyone wanting to give it a shot.
As for myself, I cut so many inches off right before we left. I guess it’s sort of a long pixie of sorts. Summer, music festivals, time with your friends — it’s all about spontaneity and fun. Let you state of mind show up in your style and own your free spiritedness!
