As the chill of winter leaves the air, one thing that is certain: Festival season is right around the corner. In just a few short weeks, you’ll be able to retire your winter coat and whip out your crop tops for a weekend filled with selfies with your besties and rocking out with your favorite bands.

If you’re a music festival regular, chances are good you’ve booked your tickets and chosen your outfits—but have you thought about your hair? The perfect festival hairstyle has to look as flawless in your social media pictures as it does after 14 hours of singing and dancing. A killer hairstyle like these braided space buns is just what you need to get noticed in a crowd full of thousands of screaming fans. Who knows, these perfectly coiffed space buns may even get you noticed by your favorite artist—stage time, anyone?

Whether you have dark brown hair or ash blonde locks, these braided space buns are the perfect bohemian hairstyle for any music festival. We teamed up with Casondra Rolph, Redken artist, to bring you this foolproof festival hairstyle.


How To Style Festival Braided Space Buns

To begin, part your hair down the middle and grab a 2-inch section of hair about an inch from your hairline on the right side of your part.

Working with the hair from the section, begin to craft a standard French braid. Once the braid reaches the crown of your head, secure it with a small elastic.

Working with one braid at a time, take the loose hair hanging from the elastic and spray it with Redken’s Triple Dry 15 Dry Texture Finishing Spray—an editor favorite.
