Getting Coachella Ready! Hot Hair Products for Festival Hair: Let’s Talk BRAIDS!

Braids are the hot, haute hair trend that started off last Coachella and is picking up steam for 2018. Whether you are going to Coachella, other festivals or merely styling your hair on a daily basis. I have loved braids for a very long time. I often braid my hair when I am getting ready to workout as well as for errands to keep my hair out of my face but look good at the same time.

There are so many great braids to be seen on Instagram. I have pulled some photos and including the link to each account so that you can look at all of their photos. Also you can check out this link to the Modern Salon post on hot braid trends for festivals here:



Boho Braids +Waves at Coachella with Oscar Blandi

Coachella season is here and it’s time to get creative with styling our hair using Oscar Blandi products!




Oscar Blandi Pronto Braid Paste



Braids and twists are easier to achieve with second-day hair. Luckily with Pronto Braid Paste there’s no need to wait! The paste texturizes and defines the hair, providing the grip necessary for sculpting any type of braid. The dry texture paste helps create braids appear fuller, binding strands together for longer-lasting styles.

The key ingredients include Microcrystalline Wax to easily blend into the hair and Lanolin Wax to provide texture and hold. Also, the paste features a refreshing creamy Valencia fragrance.


Scoop a dab into palms. Rub hands together to warm product. Apply to dry hair using fingertips to twist, sculpt and define. Smooth over finished look to control flyaways.

PRICE: $25 for 3.8 Oz.

Oscar Blandi Curl Perfecting Crème


If you’re going for a beach wave or tight curls kind of look, the Curve Curl Perfecting Crème will smooth, shape and define your curls. It locks in moisture, while sealing the cuticle for a frizz-free, curly finish. So no matter how hot or how long you stay, your hair will always look its best at Coachella!

The key ingredients include Curl Complex, which are rice amino acids, tomato fruit extract, and keratin amino acids to help enhance curl retention, while conditioning, hydrating and protecting the hair. The Organic Coconut Milk smooth and controls the curls. The Coconut Oil seals the cuticle and adds shine, while the Wheat Proteins promote curl and impart long-lasting body and shine. Lastly, Vitamin A increases sheen and body along with Vitamin E to help protect the hair from free radical damage.

USAGE: Evenly distribute through damp hair. Air-dry or diffuse for added fullness.

PRICE: $25 for 4.2 Oz.



In case you are wondering how to get started in braiding your hair correctly, here are two videos that I found that give you solid directions. I previewed a number of videos before I picked these two because of the attention to detail.





Thanks to Oscar Blandi for the video embeds.
