Easy Festival Hair with Bobby Pins

Festival season is the perfect opportunity to experiment, especially with your hair and makeup. That said, not everyone has a beauty squad with them to help them get Coachella ready. You all already packing tons of amazing festival looks so I’m going to make your life a little easier, and your carry-on a little lighter. Here are two beautiful and simple festival inspired looks that you can quickly recreate on your own. The best part? All you need to pack is a case of bobby pins.

Look 1: More is More

You know that quote about taking one thing off before you leave the house? Well, ignore that for this look. Pile on a row of decorative bobby pins to create a look that’s one part retro and one part bubble gum pop star. Start with loose textured waves created with a barrel curling iron or softly braid your hair the night before for low maintenence texture. Next, add a side part and pile on the pins. Expert tip: Be sure to flip the bobby pins, randomly in both directly to create an effortlessly cool vibe.

What you need:

  1. Textured Waves

  2. Salt Spray

  3. A handful of decorative bobby pins

Look 2: Geometry Class

All this look requires is a friend (or a hand mirror) to help you see the back of your head. Just slide a few colorful bobby pins into waved and teased hair to create a beautiful geometric design along your crown.

What you need:

  1. Textured Waves

Sister Style: Bohemian Braids

As I'm sure you've noticed, my sister Savannah and I are big fans of wearing bohemian braids. These are especially great if you have second day hair yet still want to look like you put in a little effort. I also love the versatility of braids which can dress up a casual every-day look or even dress down fancier cocktail attire. Last time I was down visiting Savannah, we decided to get our friend Chrissy from Hair by Chrissy to show us how to take our braided hairstyles to a whole new level.

For my before look, we started with my hair's natural texture and added subtle beach waves with a 1.5" curling wand. Next we let Chrissy work her magic while we messed around with my niece, Everleigh. Side note: For those of you interested in what I'm wearing, the tee above is Vintage Havana. For the rest of our looks check out the shopping guide at the bottom of this post.
