Coachella is one of the most fun weekends of the year, namely because we get to dress up our manes with accessories, braids, and buns galore. Nothing is off limits for the festival fairgrounds. And we’re constantly challenging ourselves to find new and creative ways to do our manes justice in the desert, which is why we tapped the insanely talented celeb stylist Britt Sullivan to create three unexpected styles for festival season. Below, Britt shares three super cute styles on fashion and beauty blogger Amy Serrano along with tips on how you can recreate the look this week. Enjoy!
Add a Scarf
Okay, scarves aren't just for dressing up your décolletage–they also many the perfect hair accessory! Scarves are ideal for pepping up day three festival hair. For this look, tie your hair up in top knot like I did here, or go for a low bun or even a pony, spray a quick mist of hairspray–I like Ouai Medium hold spray– and tie a handkerchief around it. Pull out some cute wispies and your good to go.
Add a Scarf
Here's a side shot.
Add a Scarf
Another option is to tie the scarf around your head instead of using it around your bun. So chic!
Half-up hairstyles cab be a great option to transition after a day of beach waves. Pull half of your hair up, parting at the front of your ear and fasten into a pony. We went for a slick look here but you can also go messy if you want! Tip: For this slick look, DART by R + Co is a great option and is tiny enough to fit in your bag and also keeps those baby hairs in place. Then, twist the pony into a bun and secure with a hair accessory or bobby pins. We used a bun cuff from Jen Atkin x Chloe and Isabel.
Cute Messy Braid
A messy braid is a good way to salvage dirty desert strands. To create this cute messy braid, add some dry shampoo to your crown and shake it through with your fingers to work the product in and add some volume. I've been loving R+Co's dry shampoo powder lately! Part your hair wherever your heart desires and begin French braiding a section about an inch and a half wide. Follow with another one just behind it in the next inch and a half. Fasten the ends with rubber bands–the super tiny kind that you can barely even see. Make another braid on the other side of your part so that your face is now framed by French braids that circle to the back of your head. Tuck the ends and pin to secure. Then pull at the braid to loosen portions and make the mmessier and free a few baby hairs around your face. Lastly, add a couple of you fave cute bobby pins, we went with star pins from Riley Rose and spray Ouai's Medium spray all over or something similar!
