Festival season is upon us, so we have devised the perfect Frenchie to rock at all those affordable music festivals you’ll be attending this summer with or without your fave fedora. Whatever your vibe, this breezy French braid is the epitome of easy festival hairstyles, meaning you’ll be out the door and dancing the night away in no time. Whether your hair is curly, straight, short or long, this one’s a sweet win for spring.
STEP 1: SECTION A TRIANGLE + BEGIN BRAIDING
Part your crown to one side and section off a triangular piece that’s about four or five inches wide. Begin braiding a three-strand French braid, grabbing new strands from the front only to create a cascading braid. Leave a few wispys at the front to keep your style fresh and carefree, allowing your hair to catch the spring breeze.
STEP 2: WIDEN YOUR BRAID
We love a good flirty front fringe, don’t you? Once you’ve finished braiding the entire length of your braid, widen it to create fullness, giving it mobility and depth. Hold your style in place with an elastic band that matches your hair color.
We love this braid’s simplicity, versatility and boho-chic vibe, making it the perfect go-to for an impromptu concert or night out with the girls. Wear as-is, or dress it up further with your favorite spring hat!
Bonus: We also love that this braid is the perfect styling option for second-day hair, or when you want to dress up a shades-and-floppy-hat situation for your morning coffee run. Go on, girl — you look fabulous no matter where you’re headed!
