Get The Look: Festival Braids

Thought that colourful hair wraps and braids were for 10-year-old girls on holiday? Think again! 

We love the simplicity of them, yet so GORGEOUS. The ultimate festival look; they’re quick, easy, and cause no unnecessary damage to your hair. What could be better?

To try this look for yourself, all you’ll need is our Micro Wand, clip-on hair beads (we LOVE these ones from Kela), and a few strands of colourful string. If EXTRA is your middle name, try the neon string we’ve used here. For something a little more subtle but still CHIC. You could use pastel pink or white string.

How to:

  • To begin, wash your hair as you usually would. Spritz it with a generous amount of our dreamy-smelling Magical Quick Dry Potion. This WONDER spray reduces drying time by up to 50%, detangles, and adds a gorgeous, GLOSSY shine.
  • Next, dry your hair using our Airshot – a 2000W styling powerhouse with vitamin-infused ceramic heating elements to CARE for your hair when styling.
  • To achieve big, bouncy curls. Use our NEW Micro Wand to curl your hair.
  • Comb through the curls using our GORGEOUS Luxury Texture Comb for natural-looking curls that will last- throughout even the WILDEST of festivals!  
  • To create your hair braid, start with colourful string that’s an inch or so longer than your hair and a Kela bead. Place the tip of the string inside the bead and clamp around a strand of hair close to the root.
  • Braid the hair and the string together until you reach around an inch from the bottom of your hair.
  • Secure the end of the braid with another Kela bead.
  • Repeat as many times as you like throughout your hair.
  • Finish by spritzing our Amplify spray onto your roots for the best VOLUME of your life.
