Looking back at the wonder that was Coachella 2022, there’s one thing we just can’t stop thinking about—Hailey Bieber’s Coachella braids. They were the epitome of the effortless cool girl and it turns out the whole look is really easy to re-create!

Coachella gave us a lot to talk about from incredible performances from headliner The Weeknd and the likes of Billie Eilish and Harry Styles—plus all the drama surrounding Kanye West and Travis Scott, but also in terms of beauty and style. Like all major celebrity-attended events, the outfits, makeup and hair take center stage and Hailey Bieber, in particular, was serving looks. 

So if you’re also obsessed with Hailey’s braided hairstyle, you’ve come to the right place…

First of all, may we add that we love the fact she wore jeans and a white tank top to the festival where everyone dresses up to the nines. She then paired her outfit with a dreamy, wavy hair look—sprinkled with loose, face-framing braids created by hairstylist Irinel de León.

Thanks to TikTok, which is the holy grail for all things beauty, whether it’s blush hacks or full-on tutorials—we know exactly how to do the look for ourselves!

User @alysialoo (opens in new tab), whose video and gnarred over 35 thousand likes, shows that you start off with a middle parting and then loosely curl your hair (if you’re lucky enough to own the Dyson Airwrap you can create really pretty diffused curls.) 

Curl the hair away from your faces holding your curler horizontal—this will give those perfect barrel curls, then brush them out to soften.

For the braids you want to section out two pieces at the very front of your hair, then split these sections into three and begin to plait—only braid them about three-thirds of the way down and then scrunch them upward.

Do the same for sections on either side of your head (you should have four braids in total), scrunch the braid up and then slowly work it back down, pulling gently at the three strands that make up your braid to loosen them. Again don’t braid down the full length of hair.

Scrunching them and then gently loosening them will give them that ‘imperfect’ beachy look that Hailey rocks so well.

If you want to do a full-blown Hailey look, you can also recreate her makeup look, which features a nude glittery eyeshadow and shimmery blue underliner. Very Y2K!
