Every Badass Coachella Hairstyle You Need to See
Coachella is taking over our IG feeds yet again, and while the FOMO is real, we can’t get enough of all the fun festival styles. One thing’s for sure, we’re not ready to let these trends die in the desert. Here are our top picks for looks that will keep you super fly all spring and summer.
It’s not surprising that our fave Mane Masters know how to make these influencers stand out in the cuteness-overload crowd. This look by celeb stylist Ruslan is as stylish as it is practical and Camila Coelho is looking mighty cool (in every direction) here. To DIY, head to your local craft store and thread through your faux hawk braid for detailed perfection.
Coachella hair does not—repeat, does not—have to be undone or grungy. Elsa Hosk is having a serious lady fashion moment in the heart of Palm Springs, thanks to Ruslan’s talent (and we’re betting tons of anti-frizz serum). We’re already calling the trend for 2020.
Dress up a pony with pastel details, an easy braid and star accessories. Don’t go overboard, though. In spite of all the add-ons, this style by Britt Sully for Lizzy Perridon is happily low-key.
Britt Sully’s occipital cornrow messy bun is not only festival hair of our dreams, it’s also a great hack for elongating your neck, meaning we’re making it our new summer staple.
Put your own spin on a classic half-up, volumizing go-to by elevating hair at the back and letting front pieces do their own thing for a layered bang effect. For those feeling ambitious, fishtail braids of varying shapes and sizes is all the drama this style (done by Britt Sully) needs.
The hair accessory of the year meets the best pony-braid combo ever, for an effortless update on Jasmine hair (this style works just as well for Coachella as it does for the premier of Aladdin). Stylist Kathleen Hair is showing us the world using hot tools by ghd.
When Shelley Gregory isn’t painting hair with colors that peppered our 5-year-old dreams, she’s styling. This cornrow in process on pastel locks is classic Coachella in exactly the best way.
Amanda Lee Hair layers in crimps for the ultimate texture cheat, while making this effortlessly cool style really pop. TBH, when it doubt, just add texture.
Hairstylist Irinel de León may have created Olivia Culpo’s sweetest look yet—who knew curling only your ends could be such a game changer?
Steph Sheph is nothing short of glamorous (let’s give credit where credit is due—this is not an easy feat in the middle of the desert) thanks to this heart-stoppingly gorgeous wrapped pony, courtesy of Irinel de León.
Sleek and Shiny Spring
Kendall, Kendall, wherefore art thou, Kendall? The Jenner muse is glowy, sleek and shiny in this timeless spring look by Irinel de León at the Revolve party, of course.

Cornrows, but make them dainty! Blogger Michelle Take Aim rocks cornrows tied up with blue bows that perfectly match her shadow.
Pipe Braid Dreams
The perfect way to elevate a half up half down look, with twisted pipe braids created by Ruslan Nureev.
Perky High Pony
Hair up and out of the face is the best kind of Coachella hair.
Parted Half Pony
For when you still want your hair down but out of your face! This V-sectioned half pony does the trick.
Want a dramatic ombre without the bleach? Use extensions to create a dual colored pony that pops.
Super Long Frenchies
Out of the way and down to the waist, just how we like it.
Don’t let your mane have all the fun! Hair and makeup goddess Britt Sully dreamed up this look for Song of Style with starry eyes and effortless waves.
