Curly Festival Hairstyles

Festival season is finally here (hello, Coachella is starting today!) which means straight and curly peeps alike are looking for some major hairstyle inspo.

Lucky for you, we’ve created not one, not two, but THREE curly festival hairstyles so you can party in the desert and be sure that your curls stay on point all weekend long!

Braided Side Pony

Step 1: Part the hair ear to ear and then part hair on the left side of the head.

Step 2: Create 2 cornrows towards the left ear using Beautiful Mess to tame flyaways.

Step 3: Part one inch behind the two cornrows. Take hair from right front side and create an additional cornrow from the right ear to the left ear.

Step 4: “Pancake” the braids—pull them apart to loosen and widen to prep for weaving them together.

Step 5: To create woven effect, connect the braids together with small hair pins approximately 1 inch apart.

Step 6: Gather remaining hair into a low ponytail on the left side.

Step 7: Diffuse ponytail with DevaFuser.

Step 8: Finish with High Shine for the ultimate glow!

Side Braid

Step 1: Start with soaking wet hair and section hair for braids on the left side. Make sure they’re two large sections.

Step 2: Create three subsections on the left side.

Step 3: Apply Beautiful Mess to smooth the hairline and Styling Cream on the curls to help secure braids and shut down frizz.

Step 4: Create three curved cornrows and secure with bobby pins.

Step 5: On the loose side of the hair, apply Styling Cream and then Arc Angel to hold the style. Then diffuse with the DevaFuser.

Step 6: Once dry, scrunch to break the curl cast, Lastly, finish with High Shine all over for long-lasting shine and hydration.


Step 1: Begin with soaking wet hair. Section curls into three.

Step 2: Create cornrows parallel with the sections.

Step 3: Secure each section with a ponytail.

Step 4: Apply Arc Angel to entire hairline and tie down to achieve a sleek hairline.

Step 5: Apply SuperCream to each ponytail and create a twist with each ponytail and bobby pin to the scalp.

Step 6: Finish with High Shine, of course! 😉
