Festival season is officially upon us, and whether you’re headed to Coachella or watching from home, you’ll want a hairstyle that’s both gorgeous and functional. Chances are, you’ll be dancing and sweating up a storm, so effortless beauty is a must when considering festival hairstyles!
Here are my favorite ways to style your hair for the season’s music festivals.
1. The Messy Braid
Throw together a traditional French braid and gently loosen up your strands before securing your ‘do with a clear elastic. For extra texture, spray a dry shampoo into your roots and massage it in with your fingers. This is one of my favorite styles to master for a long weekend!
Looking to keep your hair off your face and your neck? The milkmaid braid is perfect for sweaty weather.
If you haven’t been watching the new HBO show Vinyl, block out your weekend for some serious bingeing. The music industry-based show is not only written well, its ’70s era fashion is downright enviable, especially in a time when the resurgence of these trends can’t ignored.
Vinyl has been a style inspiration since the series premiere in February, and it’s no wonder why. The show’s costume designer, John Dunn, who has previously worked on shows like Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire (both with perfect vintage styling too), has recreated the era’s fashion with brilliant execution; the looks are gritty, glamorous, and rebelliously rock and roll. You can learn more about how Dunn has been able to revive the ’70s for HBO here and here.

Natasha Goldenberg is one of those women who just stand out in the crowd during fashion month each season. She has been on the fashion scene for a long time now and holds the title of stylist, consultant and designer. Her looks are always comfort-tomboy-chic with an unexpected dash of feminine whimsy. She gives mom-style a really good name, running around town with her daughter and always making it look good.
She’s our style icon of the week!
Androgynous style is about dressing for yourself and your identity, without being confined to either extreme side of the gender spectrum. Although it’s no new idea to mix feminine and masculine (heels with your boyfriend jeans or trousers and suspenders with a silky blouse, for example), these looks are rapidly gaining traction in the fashion world, and we are slowly breaking down the barriers of what it means to dress like a girl versus dress like a boy. We’re loving looks that take elements from both gender norms to create a neutral, fluid style.
Check out my round-up below for my favorite androgynous street style looks.
