It’s time to get your festival prep on. Coachella is going to be here before we know it. Then that means it’s going to be one festival after another. While planning your festival outfit is important, you cannot forget about your beauty look. And that’s where braids come in. Braids are a classic hairstyle for spring and summer, but they’re a go-for for festival season. They have the right boho vibe, they keep your layers out of your eyes and they’re fairly simple to do. Plus, there are so many options beyond your classic side braid.
Get inspired by these 14 epic braid hairstyles:
1. Low Bun with Side Braid
I started my #Batad yesterday for what @corriekingsley has penned the Rad Batad KAL, which I love. ? I worked on it some at lunch today, but don't worry, @nanoadri–I'm working on other things and won't get too far ahead because I know you haven't had the chance to start. Yarn is @woolenboon Dirty Chai and Commando. As you can see I love the toffee/caramel color. I even painted my living room caramel once, but that was a horrible idea (now repainted). #ididmyhairtoday #radbatadkal #woolenboon #westknitsarethebestknits #westknits #astilllifestyle #verilymoment #braidstyles #hairstylebyme #braidedbun #theartofslowliving #feelfreefeed #aquietstyle
This updo is simple, effortless and it looks amazing. Anyone can recreate it. That includes you.
2. Three-Strand Braid
The beauty of this look is that you get your hair out of your face and you have a hairstyle that looks amazing. It’s also a great option if you don’t have immediate access to a shower.
3. High Braided Bun
Don’t worry about slicking down all of your layers and baby hairs. They create a lovely softness against the sleek bun. Plus, you’re not going to be worrying about out-of-place hairs when you’re at your gig.
4. Double Side Braid
This braided hairstyle has “festival” written all over it. The way the braids meet up is very cute.
5. Braided Half Updos
The purple dye jobs are #hairgoals, but the braided half updos are also major. Try one hairdo for the first day of your festival then try the other one on the second day. A girl has to have options.
6. Braided Ponytail
Take your side braid and combine it with a low ponytail and you have a bohemian, festival-ready look.
7. Braided Space Buns with Zigzag Part and Glitter Roots
There are so many amazing elements in this look from the glitter roots to the braids to the space buns to the zigzag part. Combine them all together and you have something fabulous.
8. Tousled Braided Buns
Don’t forget about hair accessories. The gold clip adds just a bit more boho to this effortless low bun.
9. Braided Ponytail
This updo looks amazing from all angles. Get someone to help you braid the back of your head if you’re struggling to do it in the mirror.
10. Braided Half Updo
Forget about the snowy scene in the background. This look was made for the sunny fields of a music festival.
11. Braided Back with Double Buns
Even if your hair isn’t bubblegum pink, you will still get a clear festival vibe when you rock this look. Remember to add your hair glitter.
12. Half Updo with Center Braid
Don’t feel like wearing your hair up? Try this half updo. It looks good from all angles. Trust.
13. Half-Braided Pigtails
Whether your hair is super long or it hits just beyond your shoulders, give this look a try.
14. Braided Space Buns
Turning those pigtails into voluminous space buns is super easy. If your hair is on the thinner side, tease your tresses before you put them into the buns.
