Here are 13 Coachella ready styles for natural hair that absolutely do not include flower crowns

It’s that season! Ignore every piece of Coachella fashion advice you’ve ever heard. It gets too hot to care what you have on, tbh. Just wear something breathable, throw on some fun sunglasses, and make sure your hair is on point.

We can totally understand if you’d want to ditch the flower crown this festival season, but part of the fun of a music festival is getting a little hippie-dippie. We’re thinking of swapping out flower crowns for decorated afro puffs, faux hawks, and technicolor ‘fro’s.

We trolled the #naturalhair hashtag on IG and found plenty of Coachella hair inspo. (Of course, you don’t need to be heading to the desert to wear a handful of rosettes in your hair, but you already knew that, right? Coachella or No-chella, scroll on.)

Chunky faux locs with string

Extra points if you recreate her colorful shadow look

Double buns with rosettes

“Corn rose”

Start braiding in your real (or faux) roses once you pass your ear and you’re in business.

Hot cross buns

Faux hawk with roses

Star crossed bobby pins

This cute little creation will work double duty as a hair accessory and functional way to keep hair out of your face in the heat.

Floral ‘fro

Attach a few flowers to bobby pins and have a ball ?


Doobie-inspired pony

If you’re growing out your bangs or just don’t want to risk them getting sweaty in the California sun, all you need is a few pins, a little gel, and voilà.

Fulani braids

Sunset curls

Commitment phobes, try getting the look with hair chalk or eyeshadow.

Box braids with string

and finally,the most versatile, fabulous, fool proof style — the headwrap

A word of caution, it’s gonna be pretty hard to put away the hair decor after festival season is over. Our advice — DON’T!
