The Best Braids for Festival Season

Music-festival season is upon us and no music fest is more notorious or influential than Coachella.  Now that your suitcases are packed with your Levi cutoffs, Mara Hoffman bikinis, and vintage fringe crossbody bag, it's time to talk hair.  Whether you go (or dream of going), braids are the perfect hairstyle to rock at an outdoor venue. Not only do they look great but they serve a function: to keep your hair out of your face. And trust me when you’re baking in that Cali sunlight for three days straight, you’re going to need all the help you can get.

Style: The Crown Braid

How-to: Divide your hair into two sections. French braid them both and secure with elastics. You should have two school-girl braids behind each ear. Gently tug at the braids to loosen them up a bit. Fold each braid across your head to form a crown and secure with bobby pins. Try to tuck loose ends for a more seamless look.

Style: The Side Fishtail Braid

How-to: This is an update on a classic. Take a section of hair on one side of your head and pull it back into a ponytail. Divide the ponytail into two smaller, equal-sized ponytails. Separate a half-inch section of hair from the outside of the left ponytail. Pull this piece across the top of the left ponytail over to the right ponytail. Next, separate a half-inch section of hair from the outside of the right ponytail. Pull this piece across the top of the right ponytail over to the left ponytail. Repeat these steps until you run out of hair to braid. To achieve a messy look, fluff and separate the braided strands to your desire. 

Style: The Messy Pigtails 

How-to:If you are lazy, love your frizzy locks and want to really take the latest dishevelled hair trends to the next level, opt for the bedhead pigtail version of the braids, most of which is left tousled, strands falling all over the face, and the actual braids themselves in twists or with multiple weaves in one to create an unkempt but somehow still classic style.

Style: Beach Waves and Baby Braids

How-to: If you love the beachy texture, which you undoubtedly do if you are from near the shoreline no matter which state or country you have come from, this is the look for you that combines wild fun with sweet youth all in a single hairstyle. A collection of baby braids are made, possibly pulled into a half up look or simply descending as a rope down the center of your locks that are frizzy, wind-tousled and sun-bleached.
