Twisted Tuesday: My Fave Braided Hairstyles From Coachella 2014

From floral headbands to Kool-Aid-colored strands, the hairstyles seen at the music festival of the year are always worth talking about. But, my favorite looks from this year’s Coachella are on the more conservative side. Fun, but totally wearable even outside of a two-weekend-long party.

Lea Michele’s subtle cornrow braid is a great way to add interest to an otherwise basic down ‘do. Create an extreme deep side part and separate out a two-inch section of hair just opposite your part. Create a very tight inside out French braid, securing it with a tiny clear elastic just below your ear. Continue reading

Go Ahead, Sweep Your Hair To One Side


This gorgeous wavy swept-to-the-side hairstyle is a staple on the red carpet and the perfect go-to do’ for any holiday party. Slight changes can make the style lean towards classic or read more edgy (the difference is in what you do to the slick side). If clean and simple is what you’re going for, follow Amanda Seyfried’s lead and pull one side of your hair back and secure with bobby pins, sweeping the rest of your hair over your shoulder. For something a little more daring, copy Scarlett Johansson’s faux-undercut and French braid a few strands from the ear to the crown in a diagonal pattern. Either way, spray the hell out of it with a strong-hold hairspray like Redken Forceful 23 Super Strength Finishing Spray, $17 and you’ll be good to go for the rest of the night. Here are more pretty versions. Which do you like best?
