It’s Coachella Season, and sometimes we feel like it really is a season all of its own. After all, it does takes up two full weekends during the month of April. Streams of music lovers will make their way to the hip city of Palm Springs to gather for this desirable music festival. Are you heading to Coachella? If so, you may be planning what you will wear. The big question is how will you be wearing your hair. The goal…To look super Coachella-ish but make it your own. Lets not forget you will be under the sun most of the day, so comfort is also an important factor. In this journal, we are sharing Coachella 2018 Hairstyles For Perfect Hair Every Day.
Braids are always a great option for Coachella or music festivals in general because they look super cool, but will keep you temperature cool at the same time. However, why not switch up the type of braid that you would typically do. So its not so predictable. Here are some of our favorite suggestions below of some no so common braids that will stand out.
Instead of the regular boxer braids, switch out the type of braid with a fish tail braid. It adds a completely different feel and they actually look like feathers. Use our Iles Formula Finishing Serum for control while braiding, and it will also provide UV protection for your hair while you are in the sun all day.
This braid is super fun, start by taking a thin section down the center of your part. Begin braiding from the back and when you get to the front leave the ends out and pin them back behind the ear. These little simple details add so much to a basic hairstyle.
How about opting for a rope braid like the one above. We love the super long larger than life version. To achieve this, add some hair extensions while braiding. This will give you the longer length and also add thickness to your braid.
Don’t be afraid to get creative with your braids, take a typical two stranded boxer braid and combine them together. Next section that hair into several sections and braid those. Quite a different look it gives wouldn’t you say? This is a super easy way to get different results from your typical braids.
Try a braid that is loose and barely hanging on. It gives a very soft and lived in feel. Work with your hair’s natural texture by adding Iles Formula Finishing Serum to the hair and let it air dry. Once the hair is dry, a simple three strand braid at the bottom is all you need. If its too tight, loosen it up by pulling the braid apart some. Don’t forget the fringe jacket, that adds a nice touch.
Add A Scarf
We are totally in love with the idea of a scarf right now. The best part, they can be used for decorating your hair, but can also serve as shade later in the day if you begin to get too warm. A scarf is the perfect way to dress up simple shorts and a t shirt, so give it a try. Take a peek at some of our examples below.
Top Knots make for a very “easy to do” hair option for Coachella. This no fuss option will literally take minutes but last all day. Below are a few ideas that you could try that are sure to impress.
A simple half up top knot pairs well with a short to medium length bob. Let the natural texture of your hair come out, because after hours in the sun that is what is going to happen any way. So best not to fight it. Leave the fringe out, or include it when you pull the top back. Keep the top knot loose for an effortless feel.
Change up your space buns by doing a half up and half down version. This can be paired with almost anything and looks super young and fresh. Plus, you get to wear your hair down without as much of it hanging in your face and eyes.
Lived In Waves
Another one of our Coachella 2018 Hairstyles For Perfect Hair Every Day, is lived in waves. We love the idea of adding some of our Finishing Serum and allowing your hair to dry naturally. This will give you the best natural texture. If your hair just does not have any texture, then add some loose curls and use our serum at the end to break up the waves. Try this secret: Before leaving for the festival, put some of our serum in a small spray bottle mixed with water. Use the spritzes of the serum throughout the day to refresh the texture and to protect your hair from the harsh sun. Trust us, your hair will just get better and better as the day progresses.
Finger waves are a super fun hair option for Coachella. They look great and will literally hold all day. Plus when you do decide to break them up, you will have a soft loose wave to wear next. The downside, they are not the easiest to do on your own. You can have your stylist put them in before you leave, or if you are savvy with your hair, a quick you tube video will teach you how to do it. Either way, we love this idea.
We have seen lots of color over the years at Coachella and this year won’t be an exception. Rainbow pastels are the trend, baby pink and baby blue.
Hats are always good to have around. First, because they go with everything, but they also will be a life saver with providing your with shade all day. Hats can be paired with hair worn down, in braids, in low ponytails, pig tails, the options are endless really. So make sure to grab your hat as you’re heading out the door.
