Festival Beauty Essentials + On-the-go Hair Hacks!
Festival season is almost upon us, prep and primp for Coachella (or Gov Ball) in style with these three festival beauty essentials, plus hair hacks from Brazilian beauty expert:
A go-to beauty bar! Sometimes, you don’t have the will or time to primp.MB45 it with new quick service salon MB45 studio where you can get a mani and fresh blowout in 45min flat… add a festive braid and you’re out in an hour ($65-$80).
A natural dry shampoo! Sweltering festival weekends can take a toll on your hair. ABBA hair care’s brand-new Dry Shampoo ($22) is translucent, with a light texture and cucumber scent that’s not overpowering. Perfect to take with you while you’re on the go between sets.
A light styling mousse for braids! Mousse is perfect for adding lift, styling festival braids and can double as a UV protectant. Try MOP hair care’s brand-new Lemongrass Volume Whip ($22) – (FYI this is the same volume whip used to get the voluminous looks found on Halle Berry at the Oscars and Maisie Williams at the SAGs this year)
On-The-Go Festival Hair Hacks – Beauty Expert Fernanda Lacerda
1. You curled your hair this morning but now it's flat right before evening festivities? Twist hair into a loose bun and let it down just before, this trick always gets my curls back.
2. You get caught in the rain/humidity and you’ve got a hot mess situation? When in a hair jam or a hurry, braid it baby! Boxer braids are super chic, a braid into a bun can give a really cool effect as well and is easy to accomplish on your own.
