Look Magazine: How To Do 4-Day Festival Hair with Mollie King

LOOK's Beauty Editor Lydia Thompson jetted off to Coachella with GHD and Look Influencer Mollie King for four days of summer style, goss and amazing hair…

Day 1: Embellished Rope Braid Mollie says: ‘I love how the punk-inspired hair rings give the braid an edgy overhaul.’

Patrick Wilson, Ambassador for ghd, explains how to get Mollie’s look…

1 Apply a texturising powder like Bumble and bumble Prêt-à-Powder, £22 to your locks to give the hair grip. Then create loose waves all over by placing your ghd Platinum Tropic Sky Styler, £175 vertically into the root of the hair and twisting 360° as you push it through to the ends of your tresses.

2 Make a deep side parting and then add a rope twist braid to one side, taking two pieces of hair and twisting them in the same direction, then crossing over in the opposite direction. Gently pull apart the twist to loosen.

3 Finally, take Regal Rose Hair Rings, £11 and place them at randomly chosen points throughout the rope braid to add embellishment to the look. Then set the look with hairspray.

Day 2: Textured Pony Hair ribbons add girly twist to festival style.

1 Apply Oribe Travel Sized Dry Texturising Spray, £20 and then use your ghd Amber Sunrise Styler, £139 to create beachy waves.

2 Add volume to the roots by backcombing, then use fingers to pull hair back into a low ponytail and secure it with a hair elastic.

3 Finish the look by gently pulling out a few pieces at the front to soften, then tie a ribbon into a bow and set the look with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray, £17.25.

“This low- maintenance style was great – I felt so chic and I got lots of compliments”

Day 3: Glam Waves A classic style that’s easier than it looks…

Patrick Wilson, Ambassador for ghd, explains how to get Mollie’s look…

1 Blow-dry hair with a round brush then backcomb at the roots for extra volume.

2 Take medium sections of hair and curl in the same direction for a synchronised- looking wave.

3 Allow the hair to cool and set. Brush out the curls so they form a smooth wave, then tuck one side behind your ear and pin in three clips just above the ear.

“Adorning these luxe-looking, polished waves with rose-gold clips gave the style a modern festival edge”

Day 4: Dusky Pink Plaits The last day gives you the perfect excuse to go all-out with your tresses. Insta-worthy pastel braids, anyone?

Patrick Wilson, Ambassador for ghd, explains how to get Mollie’s look…

1 Add some grip to the hair with a texturising spray. Create a centre parting with a tail comb. Then make soft waves using the ghd Soft Curl Tong, £120 gently through your hair.

2 Create a triangular section from the parting to the crown and create a Dutch braid by taking sections from underneath as you plait the hair. Then secure with grips.

3 For a pop of colour, spray the braids with L’Oréal Colorista Spray in Pastel Pink, £6.99, then use hairspray to secure the style.

“This look was the most fun! I’ve never tried colour so bright but I loved it – it’s given me the courage to experiment with my hair more”
