Coachella style: natural hues vs. pastel perfection

  • v/s"
Beautiful natural brunette hair versus pretty purple pastel hair

Today's "Match the Look" might get us thrown into the mosh pit... We're putting two opposite festival hairstyles against one-another. Which is your favorite Coachella hair color: natural earthy tones or dreamy pastel perfection? Vote here!

Down to earth natural hues

The colour: If you're born with delicious dark natural hair, why change it? Those with deep shades of brunette can find it tricky to lighten their hair without bleaching, so sticking with what Mother Nature gave you is often the best bet. Your hair mantra: keep it healthy-looking.

How to style: If you've chosen to stay au naturel for the festival season, show your creativity through an unusual hairstyle instead. These double buns (aka space buns), for example, are feminine, fun and take a few seconds to twist up into shape.

What the editors say: Keeping your hair natural means you can really go to town with other elements of your look, like your hairstyle, jewellery and makeup. Why not try some on-trend face and/or hair accessories to get in the festival vibe? There can never be too much glitter at Coachella...

Up in the clouds pastel perfection

The colour: Pastel hair colour is such a popular choice for music festivals that it's almost part of the Coachella dress code. Step out from the crowd this year by opting for a slightly darker shade of grey-lavender, or even silver, to show you're leading the fashion pack.

How to style: While brightly coloured hair tends to speak for itself, in order to show off the different tones, you can't go wrong with beachy waves. Up your game by using a dry shampoo like the , which will not only give you a modern matte edge, but will also help keep hair clean and smelling amazing.

What the editors say: Pastel hair is perfect for Coachella, there's no argument there. Plus, there are increasingly more options on the market for bright and bold temporary hair colors that wash right out, so you can really get creative. Ask in-salon about the #colorfulhair colour service from L'Oréal Professionnel, and let your imagination go wild!
