4 Festival Hairstyles You'll Want to Try Right Now

Styling Trends

Whether you’re Gochella or Nochella, the start of Coachella can mean only one thing: it’s time to grab the dry shampoo and get your festival hairstyle ready. By the end of the month, the Palm Springs posse will have you craving bumper braids and brightly-coloured space buns, as trends segue from winter’s classic ‘do’s to more experimental looks for spring.

Already, we’re spotting festival-ready hairspiration on Instagram. The criteria? It has to be easy, speedy, and a little bit of shimmer is a major plus. If you want to start channelling summer styles early, scroll through our round-up of four dreamy trends that were made for the ‘mane’ stage. Which one of these looks will you try?

1. Glitter Roots

Recreate Preen’s AW18 look early with a touch of sparkle through the roots. All you need is some chunky glitter and a clear hair gel, like EIMI Shape Me. Mix the two together, then use a tinting brush or a flat foundation brush to paint the glitter on the roots of your hair. Want to make a bigger statement? With fingertips, press metallic stars and heart shapes over the top.

2. Hair Rings

We first fell for hair rings last summer, when they knocked flower crowns off the hair accessories top spot. Now they’re back for 2018, and you’re about to see them everywhere. Pierce them through micro braids, faux undercuts, half-up ‘do’s and ponytails to instantly give your look some edge. A misting of EIMI Dynamic Fix, a flexible hairspray, will provide locks with just enough grip to keep the rings in place

3. Space Buns

Space buns are so easy; you can coif them on the floor of your tent without looking in the mirror. Start by parting your hair in the centre, then creating pigtails on either side of your head. Lightly backcomb the lengths and spritz with EIMI Dry Me to create volume and texture, then twist the hair into effortlessly-tousled buns. Once you’ve pinned them into place with grips, fix with EIMI Mistify Me Light to keep your look in place. See? Simple

4. Slicked-Back

Make ‘day three hair’ look high fashion with a wet-look style. First, brush hair away from the face, then comb EIMI Pearl Styler through the roots and parting, avoiding the mid-lengths. Tuck hair behind your ears, add a spritz of EIMI Glam Mist for a glossy finish, then sculpt your cheekbones with a matte bronzer to look Coachella-cool in minutes.
