Coachella! I’ve never actually been but I hear it’s the happening place come Springtime! Edgy, bohemian hairstyles have been all the rage recently and needless to say I am completely obsessed. So of course I wanted to create a video that featured an assortment of styles that are a little more boss than your typical ‘do. I think you could definitely wear these as everyday hairstyles anyways but either way I hope you enjoy the tutorial!
Hair Prep: Before beginning I curled all of my hair with the Nume Tapered Curling wand and applied a argan hair oil to the ends. I also used a few Luxy Hair extensions to help create fullness in the styles. Specifically, 1 triple clip weft and 2 double clip wefts for the half up, half down styles and 4 single clip wefts for the ponytail.
