Festival Hairstyles:
Coachella Day 4

Partner waves and braids to get an uber-cool festival hairstyle, as styled by Millie Mackintosh and ghd. 

It's the final day of the Coachella Festival and Zoe Irwin has taken Millie Mackintosh's festival hair to the next level with this ultra cool Braided Bardot look. Complete with micro-braids and soft tumbling waves, Milly is set to turn heads with this half-up relaxed style.

Here, ghd brand ambassador Zoe Irwin takes us through the steps to create this festival hairstyle:

Here’s how to create soft waves with micro braids

1. Blow dry hair

2. Moisturise hair with smooth serum

3. Create curls with styler

4. Twist sides back

5. Create micro braids around hairline 

step one: Blow dry hair

Blow out the hair using the ghd air® hairdryer, using circular motions with the hands to create body.

step two: Moisturise hair with smooth serum

Follow with the ghd smooth and finish serum on mid lengths and ends to add moisture and long lasting shine!

step three: Create curls with styler

Next, work the ghd platinum® styler through the hair, to create a natural and effortless looking drop down curl. 

step four: Twist sides back

Twist back the sides, starting at the temple and moving towards the back of the hair. Don’t be too precise with this motion. 

step five: Create micro braids around hairline

Lastly, braid small micro-braids nearer the front of the face to outline the look. Don’t use elastics and instead simply clamp the ghd platinum® styler at the end of the hair to keep them in place and to give the look a more natural, effortless vibe.
