Despite being a music festival, many people view Coachella as the time to show off their best beauty and style looks. Celebrities especially are known to attend wearing ensembles that only make sense in the desert.
This year, stars such as Cardi B and vlogger Jenn Im were spotted wearing eye-catching beauty looks. J Balvin and Winnie Harlow also stood out with their showstopping hairstyles.
Below, we’ve rounded up some of the most head-turning beauty looks from the festival.
While performing at Coachella on April 13, singer J Balvin rocked a rainbow, animal-print hairstyle.
The musician’s hair was dyed in shades of pink, yellow, green, and orange, and featured an animal print across his head.
“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Erika Jayne attended a Coachella after-party wearing a cash-inspired beauty look.
The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star arrived at the NYLON Midnight Garden Party wearing a long blonde braid accentuated with money-shaped bows. She also appears to have had glow sticks in her hair.
For her makeup, the star wore neon-yellow eye shadow paired with a nude lip.
Cardi B donned a purple and blue hairstyle while onstage at the Revolve festival within Coachella.
The rapper’s hair was styled in bow-shaped space buns, which matched her colourful eye makeup.
For her performance on April 14, rapper Rico Nasty wore tons of accessories in her hair.
The musician’s hair was styled in an updo, and was accessorized with a jeweled headband. The accessory extended down past her chin, and doubled as a layered necklace.
Jaden Smith ditched his usual blonde hair for a bright shade of pink.
On Instagram, the musician revealed that he also wore matching pink and silver jewels over his teeth.
Victoria’s Secret model Elsa Hosk wore a beauty look that was inspired by another decade.
Upon first glance, Hosk’s Coachella look may seem simple. But the Victoria’s Secret model paired a baby-blue spaghetti-strap dress with a clipped-back hairstyle to create the perfect ’90s style.
Like a number of other celebrities, Winnie Harlow sported colourful hair at Coachella this year.
The Victoria’s Secret model attended the Revolve Festival at Coachella on Saturday wearing long pink locks that perfectly complimented her neon ensemble.
Fashion-and-beauty vlogger Jenn Im wore dazzling makeup to the festival.

On Friday, rapper Tierra Whack stole the show during the second weekend with her monochromatic style.
Whack performed at Coachella for the second time wearing a neon-pink look, which included bold pigment on one eye and nothing on the other.
That same day, Mark Speer and Laura Lee of Khruangbin wore matching hairstyles onstage.
In a previous Reddit AMA, Speer told fans that he and his bandmate wear long wigs with bangs while performing to maintain a sense on anonymity.
“When we first started, [Laura Lee] and I had been in the local [music] scene for a while, so everybody knew who we were,” Speer said on Reddit. “The idea was to come out the gate with a brand new band that no one had ever heard, with people no one recognised. It worked.”
Ella Mai incorporated tons of rhinestones into her look.
The singer wore rhinestones on her cheek, above her left eyebrow, and in the center of slicked-down curls on her forehead.
On the final day of Coachella 2019, Lauren Mayberry of CHVRCHES wore an eye-catching beauty look.
