Music festivals aren’t for everyone. And even if Coachella isn’t quite your scene, you can certainly steal one of its prettiest, easiest hair inspirations—the festival braids. Here’s how to do it, whether you’re in Indio, California, or in line at your local farmers’ market.
Step 1: Part your hair down the middle into two equal sections. Make two low braids, starting at the base of your neck.
Step 2: Take the right braid and flip it over the top of your head. Pin the end in place with a bobby pin.
Step 3: Repeat on the left side, tucking the end underneath the other braid before pinning.
Step 4: Tidy things up by tucking and pinning any stray hairs and making sure both braids are secure. How sweet.
