Coachella 2014 Beauty Inspiration

It’s that time of year again when humid valley heat and and a killer musical lineup bring thousands of festival goers to Indio, CA for the infamous Coachella. We want to help you put your most fashionable foot forward, so here is a list of the top trends for inspiration this festival month.

Top It Off

There’s a whole new meaning for “hat hair”, and the look is laid back and sexy. Add a trendy fedora or a wide brimmed topper for instant style points.

Braid It Up

Braids are a trend we continue to see over and over each season, and we couldn’t be more excited about it. Do a simple braided crown or a messy side braid to keep your look chic while staying cool in the humid heat.

Makeup Art

If there was ever a time to get creative with your makeup, Coachella is it. Bright colors and tribal designs around the borders of your eyes will bring some dimension to your look and are guaranteed to get you noticed.

Hair Jewelry

The desert setting and carefree feel of Coachella make flower crowns and headbands a must. They’re simple to make and add a fresh, spring touch to your outfit.

Dress Up Your Strands

Hair designs are big this year, and they’re a subtle touch that make a major fashion statement. Add a chevron design to your strands using the flat iron technique, or carve a cool pattern if you dared to join the short-hair movement this season.
