Festival Flair Kicks Off With Bright Nail Art and Fresh Braids

Apr 20 2014 - 10:00am

Celebrities, street style stars, and music-lovers have invaded Indio and Palm Springs, CA, for the Coachella music festival this weekend — and the beauty looks may be the best festival inspiration we've seen yet. With palm trees and desert mountains setting the backdrop, eventgoers got in the bohemian spirit with braided hairstyles, bright lipsticks, creative nail art, and more. There were some new trends (henna hands) and some old favorites (floral crowns), but overall, we were impressed with everyone's festival flair. Scroll through, and start planning your Lollapalooza, Burning Man, and Governors Ball outfits.
