Music festivals like SXSW, Coachella + Bonnaroo not only bring out the serious sound, but the serious style as well. We’ve seen more types of braids at these festivals than we even knew existed. Our current favorite is this mamma jamma right here. It’s just a regular braid, but instead of taking 3 equal sized pieces like you do in a normal braid, you just make one piece smaller than the other 2. You can see how one section is smaller in the braid if you look closely at the top photo.
Luckily, Jaclyn Johnson, from the blog somenotesonnapkins.com, was kind enough to lend us her lovely locks. We did 3 of these braids to create a little cluster and tied each of them off with small clear elastics. We think doing a few of these in back makes wearing your hair half up so much more interesting! And since you’ll find yourself standing in the middle of a bazillion people at any given time, you’ll be giving the person behind you something fabulous to look at!
Why it’s great for a music festival: it’s totally texture friendly, so dancing + swinging this hair do everywhere is highly encouraged!Tags: angela kohler, boho, bonnaroo, braid, braided, braids, coachella, dance, festival, hair, hair style, hairstyle, how to, ithyle, jaclyn johnson, kristin ess, music, music festival, pretty, style, sxsw, the beauty department, thebeautydepartment.com, tutorial
