​How-To

Step 1:Start with second day, dry hair. You can do a traditional straight part down the middle part but we thought we would add a bit of extra sass with a zig-zag zag part down the side. Pin the right and left tightly. 

Step 2: Puff the magical powder! The good stuff, Aveda Dry Shampoo,will add texture to hair so your buns will have more grit and stay in place.

Step 3: Braid a traditional braid from the back of the top of your head.  Tease the remaining hair so it is easy to pin.  Twist loosely and pin. Voila!  Adorable cute, rocking Festival Hair! 

Got Bangs? No Problem!

Have bangs?  No problem! These Festival Buns work great with a side fringe or even this strikingly sexy blunt bang.  Same steps, just a different parting.  We chose a middle part to  show off the clean lines of the fringe.
