16 Coachella-Worthy Hairstyles That Don't Involve a Flower Crown

We're days away from the first weekend of Coachella and if you're anything like us, you're just as excited for the eccentric hair and fashion as you are for Ariana Grande's headlining performance. Of course music is the main attraction when it comes to attending these desert discos, but dressing the part with a chic outfit and funky hairstyle is half the fun. From boho plaits and accessories to power ponys and even more intricate looks, festival hair is all about finding a style that combines creativity with sensibility—it needs to keep frizz on lockdown and last for days.   

Whether your client is heading to the desert this weekend or you're just looking for some new 'dos to add to your repertoire, we've rounded up 16 Coachella-worthy styles for your inspiration.
