Festival season is coming up fast! The longer, warmer days bring opportunities for music fanatics to cash in on multi-day passes to full days of outdoor concerts, and recently, what people wear and how they look for the occasion is becoming almost as important as the bands they'll see that day.

This is a great time for you to fill your book with creative color, blowouts that will last for days (showers and festivals are not typically associated with each other) and quick, braided styles.

Pravana took this annual opportunity to create some gorgeous color and styles that will stand out in the masses and last through long weekends.

Celeb stylist Danny Moon teamed up with beauty vlogger Brittany Balyn to give her rich, dynamic color inspired by colors of a fiery desert sunset. Rich blue, purple, soft pink, magenta, yellow and orange blend together for a statement-making colormelt.
