Boho beauties! The first weekend of Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival 2016 is done and dusted, which means it's prime time for obsessing over the stars' perfectly undone (but oh-so-meticulously crafted) hairstyles.
While some prefer a more "wash and wear" 'do (looking at you, Vanessa Hudgens), Nina Dobrev and Lea Michele opted for slightly more stylized looks, crafted by the Nine Zero One salon's Riawna Capri and Nikki Lee.
"The inspiration was effortless festival hair, utilizing natural hair texture and enhancing it with T3 irons," the duo, whose Beauty Coach was stationed at Coachella in Indio, California, for the weekend, tells Us. "Because it's hot and sweaty at Coachella, you never want to do a blowout because it will be gone by the time you walk into the festival!"
To create Dobrev's look, Capri braided a section of the Vampire Diaries alum's hair from underneath and secured a feather at the end with a leather tie. She then added body and curls with the T3 Whirl Convertible Interchangeable Styling Wand. Capri spritzed S Factor by TIGI Vivacious Hairspray to hold the look in place, then added the Purple Beetle Peacock Bohemian Headband.
Michele, 29, modeled the trend of the moment: double braids. Capri started by straightening the Glee alum's hair with the T3 SinglePass Straightening and Styling Iron. She then sprayed Bed Head by TIGI Oh Bee Hive! dry shampoo on the roots for grip. After creating a crisp part from the center of Michele's forehead to the nape of her neck, Capri sprayed S Factor by TIGI Vivacious Hairspray all over her part to smooth flyaways. She braided each side into a boxer braid — essentially, an inverted French braid — securing the ends with elastics.
"This hairstyle stays put, so it's perfect during the windy evenings," Capri said.
