Flirty Festival Season Braids

As festival season gears-up and temperatures are rising, braids are a great way to keep hair secured and out of your face when you’re out all day in the sun. Without worrying about mid-day frizz or touch-ups, you can focus on having fun with friends knowing your hair looks perfect in every selfie. Use your personal style to figure which type of braid will perfectly complete your festival look.
