Festival Braids

Festival season is almost upon us. For the party-people out there; tickets have been bought, plans have been made and the excitement is building. There’s one thing left to worry about however… YOUR HAIR!

Festivals are the perfect opportunity to make a hair statement! Colours and styles that may be inappropriate for your day to day life suddenly become perfectly acceptable. In fact, wackier looks are encouraged.

There is one style that stands out above others when it comes to partying. Braids!

Not only does it keep hair out of your face when you dance, they look great!

Here we have some of our favourite braided hairstyles to get you in the Festival mood.

For our first braided style we couldn’t look any further than this awesome rainbow colour style that Kylie rocked at Coachella 2016!

This is perfect if you want to stand out from the crowd and wow everyone!

Platinum, long and smooth, Katy Perry’s braided style screams festival! This look can be achieved fairly easily and will look great even if you don’t opt to bleach your hair.

Model Joan Smalls shows us how even those with super long hair can rock braids. Styled nice and thin so they aren’t too much to handle, these look amazing!

I lived out my fantasy of being part of the @getoutmovie by presenting them with their well-deserved Best Ensemble Award at the National Board of Review.

Black Panther actress Lupita demonstrates an alternative way to style braids with this up do version. More sleek and subtle than some of the others but still a fantastic festival style that will stay out of your face as you party the day (and night) away!
