Festival hair has two jobs: not just to look pretty, but to be practical too! You’ll be running around, dancing to your favourite artists, and you won’t necessarily have the opportunity to wash your hair often. So our ideal festival hairstyles need to keep the hair away from the face, and hide any possible oil build-up. Which is why we love any look with a braid to it, especially this halo braid! Stylist Adam Reed shows us how to get the look...
Step 1. Spray Pli styling spray by Tecni.ART over dry hair and use a comb to create a side parting. Pli is great for adding grip to the hair without making it feel crunchy.
Step 2. Take a section of hair from the top and start braiding over towards the ear, adding new sections of hair as you go (the French braid technique).
Step 3. Keep braiding around the head until you come back up and around to the other ear. Tie the end of the braid with as elastic. Pull the ends up to where the braid starts and pin to secure.
Step 4. Using your fingers, loosen the braid by gently pulling it apart slightly to give it that festival hair bohemian vibe. Finish by spraying Infinium hairspray onto your hands and running them over the head. Don’t push down too hard or you’ll lose the volume.
