One Australian haircare brand doing hair gems is STRAAND. STRAAND’s Hair Gem Set ($29) is a saviour when you’re running short on time. The kit comes with 180 gems, in four different colours, as well as an applicator machine. The gems can complement any hair length, not to mention help you stand out in the crowd. We suggest spraying a layer of hairspray on before applying the hair gems.

If you’re an early bird and already planning your outfit, or finding this guide moments before you head out the door to the pre-party, we’ve rounded up a few easy-to-do festival hairstyles to elevate your ‘fit to the nines.

Mermaid Waves

Mermade Mini Hair Waver ($109)

If you’re heading on a trip to Groovin’ the Moo or Splendour In the Grass, grab yourself a Mermade Mini Hair Waver ($109). It’s easy to fit into a carry-on bag for an interstate flight or weekender duffels to chuck in the car. This pretty pink hair tool will give you effortless waves that go perfectly with a sparkly set of hair gems down the framing strands of your hair.

Elevated Pig Tails

@alyssarayelee Who’s going to Coachella?? This hairstyle is perfect for any festivals or concerts!! #easyhairstyles #hairstyleinspo #finehairstyles #shorthairstyles #festivalhair #coachella ♬ NA NA NA – Lay Bankz

To the shorter-haired festival goers, this hairstyle gives off a fishtail braid vibe without the effort of remembering which strand to cross over next. All you need is a comb, one clip and at least 8 elastics to achieve these elevated pigtails.

Butterfly Clips

Butterfly clips were spotted on many Coachella-goers in the past weekend, according to POPSUGAR US. And they were often accompanied by ‘Indie sleaze’ waves and baby braids. Use a style waver and a pack of mini butterfly clips ($14.58) to rock the Y2K-inspired hairstyle.

Hair Beads

If you’re not looking to do a whole lot to the entire length of your hair you can add a few beads throughout to give it some style.

Hair Extensions

Influencer Alix Earle stepped into the Palm Springs desert with extra inches on her hairdo. She later posted a video to her TikTok account showing the before and after transformation of her hair extensions. And to that we say, go off honest queen. If you’re looking to give yourself a bit of extra length and switch up your everyday look, invest in a quality set of hair extensions. And one strong word of advice, always ensure that your natural hair matches your synthetic for a seamless blend.
