You know the summer festival season is upon us when it’s time for Coachella. Held annually over two consecutive weekends at the Empire Polo Club in California’s Colorado Desert, this year’s festival happened on April 15 – 17 and April 22 – 24. Since 1999, it has been a magnet for cutting-edge music and arts; however Coachella is as much about fashion and makeup as music.
This year there were some notable beauty trends among celebrities. Super-blonde hair was on the scene as Taylor Swift was spotted with bleached blonde locks and singer Bonnie McKee’s tresses with pink hues called to mind candy floss. Trendy, summer looks, however, were not confined to the famous. Bohemian-inspired style crossed over from fashion to beauty. Bright, bold color was everywhere. Nails in neon tones and psychedelic designs contrasted with hand henna patterns on hands. Flash tattoos and wavy, beachy hair with touches of bold color were popular. Whether hair was long, medium or short, accessories were on point with many heads sporting floral crowns, braids and jeweled headbands. Lipsticks were bright and beautiful as well with bold reds and purples and pinks.
