The Flower Crown
Of all festival hairstyles this one has to be the easiest, and one of the most glamorous. Simply fasten a ring of flowers to your hair with some bobby pins and you’ve ready to go. It’s also perfect for all hairstyles, whether you wear your hair short or long, curly or straight.
The Crown Braid
You don’t have to gather of bunch of flowers to feel like a princess, though. Festival goers have been using their own hair to create crowns for some time, and if you can master the intricacies of a circular french braid (or find a friend who can do it for you), this look is still sure to stand out.
The Mohawk Braid
Whether you choose to leave the rest of your hair out or pull it back in a pony, a mohawk braid is a super cute way to keep your hair out of your face in the sweltering heat of summer festivals. There are plenty of online tutorials that walk you through style, step-by-step, and I would say that it’s best on longer hair of all types, whether naturally straight or worn in box braids.
Speaking of box braids, there’s no better way to give them festival life than with bright festival colors. This style obviously takes a professionals hand to help with the braids, the best part is that you can try numerous looks and shades without worrying about any damage to your own hair.
Everyone from celebrities (like Kendall Jenner) to everyday festival goers have been paying homage to Star Trek’s Princess Leia with “space buns” that bring the lighthearted fun to summer festivals. This style is as simple as parting your hair and grabbing rubber bands—it’s also perfectly on-trend.
Whether you like your shade neon or bubblegum, pink hair is totally festival-worthy—just ask Kylie Jenner, who showed up to Coachella with hair so bright it probably glowed in the dark. If you’re super adventurous, you could totally die your own hair. Or you could simply cop a wig that lets you switch between pink festival fantasy and the real world with ease.
As important as it is to have the right festival hair, you also want to show of your festival makeup, and sweeping your hair to one side is the perfect way to let your bedazzled face shine. Your braids can be as simple or as intricate as you like, depending on your hair length and texture. This style truly works on everyone!
Glitter may be the festival trend that just won’t die, and I totally get it. Glitter symbolizes fun and magic—everything you want your festival experience to be. It’s also super easy to apply—you can add glitter highlights by spraying only a few sections of your hair, or you can add some sparkle to your part when you’re rocking twin braids.
