Be the Envy of Festival Goers With the Right Style
Written By: Erica Johnson Coachella Ready Hair
Be honest, when you think of Coachella, what’s the first thing that pops into your mind?
Most likely, it isn’t the featured lineup. It’s the style that really captivates the crowds. It is pretty amazing that two short weekends in the desert can influence fashion and beauty for so many people, and getting the look just right is vital to those attending.
We reached out to Jason Alarcon, stylist at the luxurious Lavender Salon & Boutique in Newport Beach, for easy tips to get you Coachella ready.

Messy Space Buns
This is one of the easiest and cutest looks, and all you need are a few hair bands, some bobby pins and a little dry shampoo! Spray dry shampoo or texturizing spray all over dried hair. Section your hair, pulling it up into small, high ponytails and secure with hair bands. Tease, then twist into a bun and secure with a few pins inside. Loosen the buns and spread them out a bit for a messy-chic look.

Probably the prettiest look that will be trending at Coachella. If you don’t have really long hair, you can add pieces to get the desired look. Part hair down the middle and add gel, but not too much! Section with fingers and braid down, starting at your hairline. Jason recommends braiding a small section, then go back and loosen a bit, then continue to braid and loosen all the way down. Use a strong hold spray when finished and you are good to go!
For best results, Jason recommends spraying hair first with a texturizing or thickening spray. Take a small section of hair and using a large-barrel curling iron, start at the middle of that section and curl hair around the iron. Alternate directions for each section so the look is loose and flowing. Flip hair to make it a bit messy.
Adding glitter and hair chalk could be fun options as well. Jason recommends using chalk on lighter hair and for glitter, all you need to do is apply hair gel to the area and put the glitter on top so it will stick.
