Festival Hair That Rocks: Express Yourself With These Top Coachella Hairstyles

Festival season is back! That means it’s time for cut-off shorts, boho dresses and—you guessed it—over-the-top creative festival hairstyles. Whether you’re off to Coachella or Bonnaroo, Ultra or Warped Tour, music festivals are where you can see your favorite artists while also catching all the latest fashion trends. They’re the perfect opportunity to experiment with your own looks and take some risks. Schwarzkopf has the perfect products to help you express yourself and get creative with your festival hair. Here is our 3-day guide with great tips to help you get started!

Day 1

Girl with rainbow-colored hair

Be festival-ready with rainbow-colored hair

The first day of any music festival is a great opportunity to experiment! Get creative with the göt2b® Color Creative line and try out a funky temporary hair color. Temporary hair color sprays, hair chalk and glitter sprays are also fun ways to try out that rainbow pastel hair you’ve always wanted.

If your hair has natural texture, Day 1 is the time to rock hairstyles that let it shine! Tease it up and make sure your look stays by finishing it off with göt2b® Volumaniac™ Hairspray.

Day 2

Brunette girl with glitter-covered braids

Keep the hair out of your face and stay cool with these gorgeous braids

When it comes to festival hair, the more braids, the better. Not only do they keep your hair secure and out of your face, but they look great too. Not to mention it’s easy to put your own spin on them with the right accessories!


  • After freshening up with some dry shampoo, keep your hair protected from the harsh elements by turning to some playful braided ‘dos.
  • An asymmetrical Dutch braid can look playful and bohemian when accessorized with some flowers, or modern and edgy with some cool hair jewelry.


Once your bangs have given up the fight against the heat and humidity, it’s time to rescue them with an easy festival hairstyle. Pin them back in a simple little braid and you’re ready to keep on rocking!

Day 3

Wear a hat to hide any hair sins and protect yourself from the sun

By the last day of a festival, your hair has likely gone through some major stress. Not to worry, though—you can’t go wrong with tucking it under a cool straw fedora or wide-brimmed floppy hat. Hats are your best friend for festival hairstyles as they come with the added benefit of some welcome sun protection while you dance your heart out for one more day!


Extra Tip: After a music festival, make sure to nourish your hair with Gliss® Ultimate Repair shampoo and conditioner, then following it up with a Gliss® Ultimate Repair Anti-Damage Mask for intense care.
