Festival season is heating up around the country, flooding our social media feeds with beautiful braids, luscious natural bo-ho waves and, celeb inspired styling.
We asked Oscar Oscar Paddington's Technical and Artistic Director, Michael Kelly, for his top 5 looks from Coachella 2015 to ensure you're festival ready this season!
Kate Bosworth - Coachella Style Queen
"Kate’s colour is a beautiful baby butter-blonde, with balayage. The front of the fringe is then corn rowed down the centre of her head, becoming almost an accessory in the hair! Complementing this look is a simple white dress topped with a lace and linen crop jacket. Bosworth takes the prize of Coachella style queen in my mind, as her look is very unique and also, effortlessly cool."
Gigi Hadid - Galactic Girl
"Gigi’s signature tousled beach waves were on display at this year’s Coachella! Her surfer- girl vibe was further enhanced by her dark re-growth. and melted blonde caramel tones. Whilst her makeup is minimal, the facial jewellery completes the look, and provides a galactic warrior vibe!"
Marina of 'Marina and the Diamonds' - Fiercely Retro
"What I love about Marina’s look here, is that her hair is undone and naturally textured! Natural flowing hair works works for this look, considering how retro-glam the rest of her outfit is. A lot of people tend to think that the ideal festival hair length is long and flowing, however Marina proves that shoulder length hair can look just as fierce, if not more! Team this look with some high reflective cat eye glasses, and you literally can't go wrong!"
Kylie Jenner - Braided Beauty
"Reviewing all of Kylie Jenner’s Coachella looks, this is my absolute favourite! Kylie rocks Mahican braids with a soft natural hairline, accessorized with white hair paint! Surprisingly, this look is fairly easy to achieve, and remember the more texture added, the better! Kylie completes the look with a thin white ribbon wound around the bottom of her plait. This look is extremely creative, but at the same time, achievable!"
Bella Thorne - Festival Angel
"Thorne's look is extremely classy, with her gorgeous Victoria's Secret-esque hair, she just looks angelic! A simple middle part, paired with a vivacious hair colour completes the look. Don't be afraid to trial a different hair colour around festival season! It can be a great excuse to experiment with a colour you would otherwise not think of trying! Make sure you consult a stylist before making the bold move, as we can help prescribe the right colours and tones to suit your skin, for the best result."
