Trends To Watch

Braids on braids on braids! Creative and artistic braiding is a major staple for festival season. You are going to see some of the most incredible hair braiding ever. Plus, there’s going to be tons of glitter and hair accessories incorporated into that braiding―think multi-dimensional braids with fun colors, glitter and jewelry. Expect to see pure magic.

Favorite Festival Look Ever

I call this look Windstorm Warrior. When clients are headed to music festivals, it’s their time to get creative and let their freak flag fly. They’re going to deal with lots of wind and sometimes dirt storms so to get them through the entire day and night with amazing-looking hair, I always resort to braiding. It’s my all-time favorite festival hair for those very reasons. Lock in those braids, add accessories and glitter, and let them dance their faces off for the next 10 hours without worrying about their hair.

Get The Look

1. Section off a U-shaped section of hair around the crown using a fine-toothed comb. Then, using the comb, divide hair into four equal sections. Clip up each section individually.
2. Starting on one side of the head, rub a small amount of Redken Dry Shampoo Paste 05 into your palms and begin tightly French-braiding each section close to the scalp.
3. Secure each French braid with an elastic.
4. Once all four sections are braided, spray a few spritzes of Redken Dry Texture Triple Dry 15 Spray on the remaining lengths of these four sections, as well as on a few bobby pins.
5. Take the two sections on either side and twist them up into two ‘space buns’ by wrapping each of the two sections on each side in a circular motion.
6. Take a few of your spritzed bobby pins and use them to secure each bun.
7. If desired, add some glitter to the top of the braids for added festival fun like Redken Color Rebel Glitter Spray.
