Festival Hair Tutorial: The Coachella Crown

Spring is just around the corner and festival season is about to start.  We here at Free People are already thinking about festival fashion and the perfect hairstyle to go with our looks. We got inspired but the colorful, braided hairstyles in our March catalog and decided to create our very own festival crown. Our latest video features a cool hair idea for festival season combining colored dye and braids that we’re calling the Coachella Crown. You can even wear it on day two (or three!) of your favorite music festival. Enjoy!

A special thanks to The Parlour Salon

I loved how they really showed the nitty gritty details of what it’s like when you’re doing your hair in this video. It’s usually too vague, but this time you can see they too have to struggle to find that perfect spot to hide a pin, re-work a style, etc. Thanks, great tutorial!


wow! vey pretty!


what is the music in this tutorial?


the music credits are at the end of the video


yea…can’t seem to find it anywhere…

@Noa: “chemin de fer” by adam charles cooper & chelsea delle palme

purple + pink coachella crown braid


Wow! So pretty!! Are you guys going to post make up tutorial videos with the make up artists and the FP models anymore? I haven’t seen one posted in a long time!

more then a blast…


Gorgeous braids! Love the colour, as someone that dyes their hair crazy colours themselves. I love her makeup, too. :)


Can’t find the song either. Maybe a mistake?


it was a song our friend adam wrote specifically for the video! glad you all like it so much! <3

This looks awesome, can’t wait to try it! Also, if anyone gets the braids but hasn’t gotten the Coachella tickets yet, try this site out, my friend just told me about it:
They’re giving away free tickets through this new app called eventseeker.
You can’t just show off the “Coachella Crown” just anywhere!

I enjoy the amount of detail that has gone into this page.At any rate I’m going to be subscribing to your feed and I really hope you are writing again soon.Great post! EZ Money Formula

Thanks for sharing your thoughts about coachella crown.

Good tutorial! I never would have thought of this. Should a gel be used to keep the hair style in place? Summer humidity does cause some frizzing.
