The dawn of Coachella is upon us once again, and while we finalise our outfits and force our suitcases closed, it is time to prepare our hair for the days to come. Pinterest boards at the ready and camera roll full; it’s always hard to pick the right ‘do for the day. What if you nab a selfie with Beyoncé? You can’t be rocking any old hair, with her glowing, golden mane next to you.
So, for the most gram-worthy, awe-inspiring hair in California, take visual cues from some of our most stylish hair chameleons. And say ‘hi’ to Yoncé for us.
After donning new peachy-pink hair just last week, Jackson was quick to add what hairstylist Riawna Capri called ‘unicorn’ streaks of pink and purple to her new ‘do, giving us major My Little Pony vibes.
Riverdale’s sassiest Serpent and all-round bad a** rocks her character’s signature locks even after filming has wrapped: bubble-gum pink, I-woke-up-like-this hair. Pair with blue eyeliner accordingly.
That California heat sure is hot, so keep things cool (literally and figuratively) with a short and sharp cut à la Delevingne, dyed ‘it’ colour of the moment, platinum blonde. Chop, dance, sleep, repeat.
Boho queen, festival regular, Coachella MVP. The newly named partner of Matrix Hair, Hudgens now has every shade of the rainbow at her fingertips. Her current choice: this vampy Blooming Orchid. Knowing Hudgens, she’s sure to change up her look again come festival foray. Watch this space.
Giving a whole new meaning to the term ‘flower child’, Gerber’s subtle, tousled waves are a perfect match for the large, statement daisies pinned to her hair – a beautifully folkloric reference to her partnership with Marc Jacobs Daisy. Cue Sandi Thom’s I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker.
Bella, Girl of the 21st Century? ‘It’ girls have been rocking the Spice Girl buns for as long as time: Baby Spice, Britney, VMA’s Miley. It’s no surprise then that Hadid is a regular bun fan. Who needs hair in your face while you’re trying to rule the world… or dancing to Beyoncé.
