3 flower crown alternatives for festival season

Introducing your new fest friends

We are so over flower crowns (but never the flower crown filter-- don't even THINK of getting rid of that, Snap).

That's exactly why we're here to talk to you guys about the 3 non-flower related trends we picked up at Coachella that we are LOVING atm. Better yet, it's super easy to hop on these trends with your UNiDAYS discount.

1. Unicorn Hair

We're not going to sit here and tell you to start every day with a Unicorn Frappuccino, those things look gross. What we WILL tell you is that you should get yourself some #unicornhair ASAP, because brands like Lime Crime have upped their game and are making it easier than ever to color your locks. Their semi-permanent hair dye comes in 13 funky colors, and with names like Sext, Gargoyle, and Salad, how can you pick just one?

They're the perfect commitmentphobe alternative to cash in on the trend without wearing a wig, and think about all of the combinations and possibilities! As you've guessed, the longer you leave in the dye, the more pigmented your color will be, so you can achieve something super rich like this:

Or you can opt for a softer pastel look a la Frenchy from Grease like this (UMM we're also OBSESSED with those glitter roots-- sign us up):

Either way, this isn't a trend for the faint of heart, so get ready to turn heads and explain to your Mom that yes, your hair is supposed to be green.

2. Bye Bye Boho

It's not that we don't love the Boho-style we all associate so closely with Festivals. We wish were at Woodstock that first time around as much as the next guy-- but how many years in a row are we going to see the same girls show up in the same tired suede fringed vests? Enough is enough. The looks that stood out to us at Coachella were the looks that dared to be different. That's why we love LA-based, quirky and cool brand Valfre'. Their clothes are chocked full of color, sweet-cliche and sass.

Not only are we crushing on the gold kitschy Disco jacket (pictured above) but they have a sexy little version in red (below) that is hard not to love.

You're going to be surrounded by bloggers, influencers, and ACTUAL celebrities at these festivals. Isn't it time they asked to take a picture with you? That's how special this jacket is.

3. Glitter Lips

It's not that we don't love a good matte lip! We do, even if the world is telling us that matte is out. When it comes to festival season, however, I think it's time we talk about GLITTER lips.

We're obsessed with Lime Crime. Sorry, not sorry. Their make-up is the edgiest stuff going, and better yet, it's vegan and cruelty-free (YAY animals!). We saw a lot of very glittery-lipped looks happening on Instagram following Coachella, and we wanted to let you know that their Diamond Crusher's lip toppers are the only way to achieve these perfect metallic pouts.

What do you think? Are you loving the direction of Festival fashion in 2017?
