Okay – so we think baby braids might be the biggest trend of festival season so far, and possibly our favourite too. It’s giving us major 00’s throwback vibes, and we’re totally here for it. Whether you opt for teeny tiny face-framing braids, a scattering of boho-style baby braids throughout the hair, or a whole elaborate braid design – it’s super versatile. Have fun with it and combine with one (or all if you’re feeling *extra*) of the below trends for the perfect festi look.
From baby braids to hair tinsel – this is the ultimate guide to 2021 festival hairstyles
It was touch and go for a minute whether we’d be having yet another year of no festivals, but (hallelujah!) festi season has finally arrived, and it’s making its comeback in style.
Maybe it’s because a year and half of boredom has left us more than ready to let off some steam, or maybe it’s because we’re trying to fit a whole year of festivals into the last month of summer. Either way, it’s clear that festivals are back and better than ever – and festival style has definitely levelled up too.
This year, we’re seeing a return of the circa 2016 era of boho waves and braids (think Vanessa Hudgens at Coachella, minus the flower crowns) – and we’re totally here for it. We’re also seeing a tonne of other fun and extravagant styles – so there’s something for everyone.
So, if you’re counting down the days to your festival debut (or hey, maybe it’s your 5th one already and you’re just running out of ideas) – here’s all the inspo you need. The main stage won’t know what’s hit it.
