Team Grazia beauty love nothing more than ogling over festival beauty looks on a Monday morning, especially when the sun is shining, and said beauty looks are coming straight from Coachella, LA’s hippest music festival. Talk about summer beauty inspiration! Us beauty girls can’t get enough of all of the stunning hair and make-up looks from this weekend’s first instalment of Coachella and are taking serious note of this summer’s trends for when it’s our turn to rave it up at Blighty’s festivals. We’ll be taking inspiration from the likes of Kate Bosworth, Rita Ora and co for our summer beauty looks- read on for this summer’s new festival beauty rules…
1. A flower crown will always be the ultimate hair accessory
With our heads almost free of knit beanies, summer is the perfect time to start experimenting with delicate, warm-weather-appropriate hair accessories. Whether you opt for a bold, standout floral like Poppy Delevingne or romantic white roses a la Emily Rossum, there’s no denying that a flower crown is the ultimate in festival chic.
2. Kate Bosworth is your beauty inspiration
Stifling desert heat during the day and dipping temps at night will do nothing for your complexion. Throw in substandard shower facilities, too much alcohol and a lot of (delicious) fast food and we can pretty much guarantee that your skin will be looking more drab than fab pretty quickly. Alas, take note of Kate Bosworth’s radiant glow. Her trick? It’s all in the ground-work, pre festival. Book yourself in for a deep cleansing facial the week before you head off and get ready for a real A-list glow…
3. Mermaid hair is where it’s at
While tousled, surfer-chic hair is one of our fave summertime beauty looks, we couldn’t help but notice this season’s chic upgrade. Chanel Iman and Rita Ora were seen sporting the ultimate in mermaid hair- with plenty of texture, a matte finish and a hint of pastel colour, this is SS14’s official festival hairstyle.
4. This is the perfect place for trialling a new hair-do
If you’ve been contemplating going blonde this summer, then now is a time as a festival is the perfect place to showcase your new tresses. After all, if it’s good enough for Vanessa Hudgens…

6. Get pretty with your plaits
Plaits will always be synonymous with summer festivals, but we spied some pretty awesome styles this weekend in the Coachella valley. Don’t be afraid to mix it up with your plaits- take note of Emma Roberts and Whitney Port’s super-cute styles.
