Festival Season Looks That Slay

California has some of the most epic music festivals in the world. With Coachella and other Spring festivals on the horizon, it's time to start planning your ultimate festival beauty looks. At Maribou, we're here to guide you through creating unforgettable festival hairstyles and makeup that will make you stand out in any crowd.

The perfect hair for the perfect weekend...

Festival season is synonymous with experimentation and boldness, a time when you can express your most adventurous self. This year, we're seeing a resurgence of vivid hair colors, intricate braids, and playful accessories that can add style and playfulness to your festival experience.

Imagine capturing the essence of a Californian sunset in your hair—this is the beauty of mermaid waves combined with bold, vibrant colors. From electric blues to pastel pinks, there's no limit to how daring you can be. Our colorists specialize in creating personalized color palettes that complement your skin tone and festival outfits.

Braids are a festival staple, offering both style and functionality. This season, we're taking inspiration from global cultures, weaving together Dutch, fishtail, and box braids into unique patterns that tell a story as rich as the festivals themselves. Whether you prefer a single statement braid or a fully braided look, our stylist can guide you to what will work best with your overall personal style.

Of course, no festival hairstyle is complete without the perfect accessories. Think floral crowns, glittering hairpins, and bandanas that add a touch of whimsy to your look. Our salon offers a curated selection of accessories that will complement your hairstyle and add that finishing touch to your festival ensemble.

Unleash your inner festival goddess...

Festival makeup is an art form where your face becomes the canvas for creativity. This season, we're drawing inspiration from the natural beauty of Northern California, with shimmering highlights, bold eye shadows, and sun-kissed cheeks.

Achieving that perfect festival glow starts with healthy, hydrated skin. Our stylists recommend starting with a moisturizing primer to create a smooth base. From there, we build up to a luminous foundation, topped with a liquid highlighter that captures the sunlight in all the right places.

When it comes to festival eye makeup, the motto is "go bold or go home." This year, we're loving the combination of glitter eyeshadows and graphic liners to create looks that are as dynamic as the festival lineups. Whether you're channeling a bohemian vibe with earth tones or opting for a futuristic look with metallics, our makeup artists are here to guide you through each step.

Complete your festival makeup look with a lip color that speaks volumes. From matte finishes to glossy shines, the key is choosing a hue that complements your overall look. For a touch of fun, consider a glitter top coat that will make your lips pop in the festival lights.

Acheive your look at home...

While we'd love to see you in our salon, we understand the DIY spirit that festivals inspire. Here's a quick tutorial to get you started on your festival beauty journey at home:

Step 1: Create Your Base

  • For hair, start with a heat protectant spray before crafting your mermaid waves with a curling iron. For color, temporary hair chalks or sprays are a great way to experiment without commitment.
  • For makeup, apply a hydrating primer followed by a lightweight foundation for a flawless base.

Step 2: Add Texture and Color

  • Braid sections of your hair to add texture, incorporating colored extensions or ribbons for that extra flair.
  • Use a bold eyeshadow palette to create your eye look. Don't forget to add glitter in the center of your eyelids for that festival sparkle.

Step 3: Accessorize and Set

  • Choose accessories that complement your hair color and style. Secure them in place with hairpins.
  • Set your makeup with a setting spray to ensure it lasts through the dancing and festivities.
