We’ve done it again: We’ve fallen under the Pinterest spell. But with festival season upon us, can you blame us? Get ready to feast your eyes and absorb the beauty inspiration, because we’ve got you covered on all things festival hair, makeup, and all-around effortless beauty vibes. Scroll through to start pinning and Coachella planning!
Festival Fever is an appropriate title for this board filled with desert-festival inspiration galore. Power pinner Liz Cherkasova (aka Late Afternoon) has cultivated a board filled with beautiful flower-adorned hair ideas, effortless makeup, and the outfit inspo to pair each look with. It will make you want to finally give hats a try or amp up your hair accessory game.
If hair-braiding and flower-filled updos are in your wheelhouse, start your pinning here. Festival Beauty by Chatters Salons has tutorials and countless images of dutch braids, “I just got out of bed with perfect hair” hair, and even a dream-catcher-esque half-updo. Feeling inspired to test-drive some braids? We recommend spritzing your strands with Not Your Mother's Double Take Dry Finish Texture Spray ($7) before you get started to give your hair some texture and grip.
Oh, Threaded Vibes, what is your secret to creating an epic board featuring all our wildest pastel-hair dreams? With a description that reads, “Colorful, wild, and chic festival hair ideas for a music festival,” look no further for hair color inspiration and styling ideas. If you ever thought I’m down to try hair turbans, this pinner has the hair tutorials for you. Want pastel-blue hair without the commitment? They’ve got a hair-chalk tutorial for you as well. Personally, we find sprays easier to use than hair chalk. Try Joico’s InstaTint Temporary Color Sprays ($10).
What more can you ask for than a board dedicated to Coachella style and vibes? This board is filled with gorgeous, sun-kissed ladies who will make you want to start bronzing up again for that enviable tan look. With hundreds of pins showcasing glowy skin, sunset eyes, and relaxed waves, this board will have you packing your bags for the desert.
Slufoot’s Festival board has a modern Woodstock/’60s/’70s vibe to it. Besides the slew of fringe—for clothing and hair—she offers minimal yet impactful makeup looks that would be perfect to try out for your festival adventures. Embellishments (whether they be tiny stars framing your face or sequin-like decals adorning your eyes, à la the classic 1969 Woodstock photo) are easy to try and will make you stand out among the crowd.
