The annual southern California music festival kicked off last weekend, and people got especially creative with their hairstyles. Coachella is one of the hippest music festivals in the world. Attended by lots of young celebrities, it is a place to see and be seen. The range of fashion and hairstyles that could be seen throughout the festival grounds emulates the eclectic range of music that could be heard. Albeit, the festival is no longer just about the music; it’s an incubator for self-expression manifested in individual dress and style.
Previous generations have inspired many of the ensembles of today’s fashion. The “Boho chic” style, whose roots go back as far as the 19th Century, but gained prominence in the 1960’s, has been particularly well represented as a recognizable casual festival fashion genre.
From neon blue hair to braids or a simple ponytail, celebrities far and wide came to celebrate this fashionable festival in Coachella Valley and display their own unique connection with eccentric fashion.
Inspirational threads from 1960’s Woodstock festivals were everywhere to be seen. Loose free flowing hair, center parts, head scarves, wide brimmed hats, and flower hair garlands from daisies to roses to very large chrysanthemums.
Kendell Jenner obviously took head scarf inspiration from Brigitte Bardot (above), side wisps and all.
Headbands, braids and hair accessories were everywhere to be seen at Coachella.
This hair accessory above can be easily made from all types of trinkets, hanging from the strands of a threaded braid. The feathered accessory below can be found on Etsy.com and the hanging chains are available at Top Shop but can very easily be one to make yourself by adding chains to a stretch plastic headband, also known as “scuni stretch combs”.
I love how in this Woodstock 1970’s image, Janis Joplin wove her own hair amongst the flowers of her garland. Below at this year’s Coachella, bold and beautiful chrysanthemums make a stunning head piece.
Time stands still between these images of Woodstock 1970 above and Coachella 2015 below.
