If the first thing you think of when you hear the word Coachella is ‘flower crown’ or ‘hippie’ – you are wrong – at least this year! The flower crown trend is departing and making way for HAIR JEWELRY. Which I love. I’ve never been one to embrace anything hippie other than my eating habits. Clothes, hair, accessories? No thanks. I’m more of a glam lover, so when I started to see festival looks coming up featuring ornate crowns and hair pieces, I had to create my own look. 

I still pulled this look together with some festival-inspired elements: the super long hair (thanks to THESE amazing hair extensions), and four hair twists to wrap around my head, secured under my hair jewelry. I don’t know what else to call it – it was originally a headband. I cut the ribbons to tie it off, and I secured it to the back of my head with bobby pins. I think it gives a much more badass vibe than wearing it as a bridal-y headband. 

Let’s talk about the extensions. I have used probably 5 different brands before, and I was BLOWN AWAY when I received THESE extensions from The Hair Shop. They are the most natural looking extensions I have seen or touched. The wefts are not thick – which is not a bad thing, because they lay flat to your head. No lumps = not fake looking. Another thing that I really like about these extensions is that they come in so many different shades and lengths. I haven’t ever seen as many options to choose from as far as color selection goes before. I really like that these ones have some highlights running through for added dimension. I am wearing a mixture of 610 and P640, and they blend perfectly with my hair color. If you’re unsure of what color might be best for you, The Hair Shop’s customer service team is the cream of the crop. Jessica and Sarah are there every step of the way if you need help.

And I have a special discount just for you to use on any set of extensions at The Hair Shop! Use code GUSSIEDUP at checkout for 20% off. How fab is that?

What are your thoughts on this year’s festival hair trend and the jewelry for hair trend?
