Coachella 2024 is here, and although weekend one has officially come to an end, weekend two is still welcoming celebrities and music fans to the valley in droves. Beyond the performances from artists like Doja Cat, Sabrina Carpenter, and No Doubt, the festival has so far also lived up to its reputation of providing enough hair, nail, and makeup looks to carry you through the summer.

Year after year, there are a few beauty staples that anyone needs when attending Coachella (think sunscreen, a water bottle, and face mists). However, there’s something about the sheer creativity that goes into creating the beauty looks that gets better with every festival. From people bringing back retro hair and makeup trends — yep, Y2K beauty dominated the scene this year — to celebrities sporting sparkling, over-the-top outfits, Coachella remains the premier source of inspiration for fashion and beauty.

Even better: some of the biggest trends are perfect for the warm-weather months. To help you feel inspired for the summer season, we found the best beauty looks to come out of the festival. From colorful hair to a new take on hair tinsel, read ahead for the best makeup, hair, and nail moments to try for yourself at home.

Glow in the Dark Nails

Think this is just a regular green manicure? Think again. Hailey Bieber’s nails were actually glow in the dark, the perfect accessory once the sun dipped for the night.

Hair Tinsel

You may have thought that hair tinsel was a thing of the past, but that’s not so. Alix Earle brought it back in a fun new way, with black streaks instead of the typical silver.

Colorful Hair

Bold hair colors are always a staple at Coachella, and celebrities use the event to try daring hues. Take Megan Fox, for example, who traded her pink hair for a pretty blue shade for the occasion.

Crimped Hair

We saw a lot of crimped hair looks at the festival this year, whether on celebrities like Ice Spice or festivalgoers frolicking the grounds. We love the look on short or long hair.

Space Buns

Space buns are one of our favorite festival looks because they’re functional and cute. They’ll keep your hair out of your face while you’re dancing, but you still look put together at the same time.

Bubble braids were huge at last year’s festival, and the trend popped up all over the polo grounds again this year. They’re simple to do, and bring a whole new layer of fun to any outfit.

Baby braids are a staple Y2K hair look, so of course they were seen all over the valley. Previously seen on stars like Zoë Kravitz and Bieber, the look is clearly here to stay.

Butterfly Clips

Butterfly clips are an easy way to give a nostalgic nod to the ’90s. Previously seen on celebrities like Olivia Rodrigo, festivalgoers used the clips to provide pops of color to their outfits while keeping flyways away.

What do you get when you combine the monochromatic beauty trend with crystal eye makeup? Next-level eye looks — which were aplenty at Coachella this year.

Colorblock Eyeshadow

Colorblock eyeshadow is a fun way to play with eyeshadow without it taking over your entire makeup look. Regardless of how you play with the eyeshadow shape, using contrasting colors like the green and orange seen here makes for a head-turning look every time.

Want to put a maximalist spin on the crystal eye makeup trend? Take the gems beyond just the eyes and apply them in your hair for a look that will have you feeling like a walking disco ball (in the best way).
