Summer is the perfect season to explore the versatility of braids. Braids offer a stylish and practical solution, whether you're heading to music festivals, spending a day at the beach, or looking to add some fun to your everyday look. Here’s how you can wear braids this summer, with a few tips from our Dosha Stylists

Your Everyday Look

Boho / Side Braids - Perfect for a laid-back yet chic look. They’re quick to do and can add a touch of sophistication to your everyday style.

Accent Braids - Small braids woven into your hair add a subtle but stylish detail. They’re perfect for those who want to experiment without committing to a full braid. 

Braid & Bun Combo - Best for a day-to-evening look, these easy braids are ideal for second-day hair.

Start with a simple braid and twist it into a bun. This look is versatile enough for a day at work or a night out.


  • Aveda Shampowder - Your new summer must-have!
  • Hot Iron - Throwing in a few curls to amp up your look!
  • Comb
  • 2-3 Bobby Pins (per Bun)
  • 2 Clear Hair Bands

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: Then, grab your Aveda Shampowder, to 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!

These Festival Buns work great with a side fringe or even this strikingly sexy blunt bang: follow the same steps as above, just a different parting.  We chose a middle part to show off the clean lines of the fringe.  


How to Boho/Sides braids (double braid)

Start with a simple French braid on both sides, then pin it to the back and finish with Air Control™ light hold spray. You can take this look into the office or out for a fun day in the sun.
