Your Hair Guide through the Coachella Valley

Your Hair Guide through the Coachella Valley

The Line Up 

It's beginning to look a lot like Festival Season, from social media to online retailers we can see that desert inspo is among us. You will see influencers and the general audience alike dressed to the nines in Bestsellers and New Arrivals from your favorite stores. Not only will the Coachella Valley be pumping out the latest hair and fashion trends for the next 3 weeks, it will also be playing the best music! Coachella Weekend 1 will be taking place (April 14-16), Coachella Weekend 2 (April 21-23) and Stagecoach (April 28-30). Don’t worry if you can’t attend IRL, you can watch your favorite artists on the Coachella Youtube Livestream. I’ve been to both of these events a total of 4 times so I have a bit of experience in the desert heat (and wind). Here are my tips and tricks on how to keep your mane tamed all weekend long.

The Preparation 

If you’re looking to have your best hair days ahead it takes a little bit of planning and a lot of dry shampoo. Make sure to give your scalp TLC by using clarifying shampoo to remove product build-up or wash and repeat with your usual shampoo. After you’ve applied conditioner from the mid-strands to ends of your hair and pat gently to dry or use our microfiber towel turban, make sure to follow up with serum and style as usual. For the days in-between washes use a leave-in spray to reduce static, frizz, and tangling and keeps your hair smelling great and looking fresh between sets. 

When the beat drops

If you’ve been to either of these music festivals then you know it’s HOT, you get sweaty and your hair is bound to get tangled by the end of the night so make sure to plan your hairstyles accordingly. Whether you are wearing tape-ins, a ponytail, or clip-ins

  • Day 1 is the day to go all out with your hairstyle, accessories and all. 
  • Day 2 becomes a more practical look once you experience how much wind and walking there is between sets. 
  • Day 3 ends up being more of a natural look with trendy accessories (if you make it to day 3) because all of your energy has been depleted by the desert sun.

After the Festival 

After your festival days are over, make sure to go home and gently detangle (see 9-1-1 Tangle and Matting Emergency) your hair. Follow the same TLC scalp prep steps as before, but this time give your hair a much needed deep conditioning mask to put moisture back in your hair after a long weekend in the sun. Whether you are going to livestream the event or attend IRL, are you Coachella ready?
