Meet Our Festival Hair Guru

Festival season is about so much more than listening to music and dancing the night away in the desert, it’s a lifestyle—at least for the weekend. Which means everything from your outfit to your hair has to match the vibes perfectly. And who better to inspire your festival hairstyle than stylist to the stars and partner Bradley Leake

Known for his signature sunkissed balayage, Leake is responsible for the perfectly crafted ‘dos of your favorite movie stars, influencers, and reality TV personalities, and he’s sharing his festival hairstyle secrets exclusively with “I love festival season as a stylist because it's a great way to be creative,” Leake says. “It encourages people to step out of their comfort zones when it comes to how they style their hair—while also having fun trying the latest trends!”

Wondering what hairstyles are trending this festival season? Leake says the beauty looks and fashion from our favorite high school drama are the ultimate inspiration. 

“We're seeing a ton of inspiration from our favorite characters—they’ll definitely inspire the looks this festival season. We'll also be seeing microbraids and buns, and some of that Y2K inspo will make an appearance, too!”
