Mohawk Braided Ponytail
A regular ponytail just won’t do during festival season. That’s why we love this edgy interpretation featuring the beginning part of a typical French braid that opens up into a perfectly textured pony.
X marks the spot. Get twisted by crisscrossing your braided pigtails in the back — this works really well for anyone rocking two-tone hair color.
While this unique chunky braid doesn’t quite go on forever, it will certainly turn heads at any festival. We’re digging the way the blond strands are only woven into the epic braid’s bottom half.
Loose Braids and Flowing Ends
Start off with a duo of Dutch braids and then you can decide whether you want your bottom halves to be in the form of a standard set of pigtails, fishtails or a pair of four-strand braids that morph into rope braids (seen here). Or, since most festivals stretch out over several days, change things up for each act.
Boho Goes Dutch
Double Dutch braids meet in the middle to form a new Dutch braid. This look is all about the details, from the relaxed nature of the braids themselves to the twisted knot in the middle and the looped end at the bottom.
Roller Coaster Braided Bun
This braided updo takes onlookers for quite a ride, zigzagging up, down and around. Even sections of the unbraided bun are woven around the braids.
For you ladies who love to wear your hair down, add a couple braids underneath the hair on the left and right side, about halfway to the nape of your neck for an unexpected twist to your casual vibe. Add a few more to the top section — the key is to keep each individual braid as thin as possible to keep the look subtle.
A great twisted style for those looking for a lush look is to loosely braid your hair to the side, so that the volume and texture is more dramatic. For added texture, finish it with medium hold hairspray and gently brush the braid with a clean toothbrush for a lived-in and fuller effect.
Can’t make up your mind about which type of braided hairstyle you want? Then go all out and add cornrows and peekaboo braids all over the front section of your hair, and play with size variations as well as switching up the direction in which each braid goes for added edge.
Festival season is upon us, which means you’ll soon be packing your beauty essentials and flowy dresses to wear as you dance under the sun to your favorite musical acts. Besides a solid amount of SPF, a cute and comfortable hairstyle is an absolute must. Braided hairstyles are the ultimate look to rock to a music festival this season: You don’t have to be a mane master to style them, they are low-maintenance, keep hair out of your face and look great on all hair types and lengths. Whether you’re into a boho look, an edgier style or want a simple option to wear with your hair down, we’ve got you covered. Check out 30 of the best braided hairstyles to inspire your beauty look.
