Whether you were in Indio this weekend getting your spirit revived by Beyoncé or just there in spirit, you have to admit the Coachella fervor is real right now. And throughout the festival grounds during weekend one, there was one noticeable hair trend that every model, influencer, and celeb seemed to be embracing: embellished braids. Just like how space buns reigned supreme at Coachella in 2017, braids with all sorts of adornments—from thin leather twine to silver "piercings" to real flowers—were spotted everywhere (including on our own wellness editor, Victoria Hoff). See some of our favorite looks below, and bookmark them for weekend two.
Victoria's Secret model Romee Strijd debuted two statement braids with pink leather strands woven throughout.
On day two, Strijd debuted another intricate braided look, this time with black twine.
Yes, color counts as embellishment, too. Fellow VS model Lais Ribeiro added pops of cobalt blue through her strands to go with her outfit (festival hack!). Try Hush Prism Airbrush Spray ($24) in Blue Moon for a similar temporary effect.
Byrdie's own wellness editor got her hair braided by Justine Marjan, who added delicate yellow flowers for an added touch.
What's more fitting for a festival than a giant Dutch braid with lots of embellishments?
