15 Awesome Festival Braids to Try This Coachella

Nothing says festival season quite like a fabulous braid.

It's the perfect way to keep your hair out of your face, and adds that quintessential boho touch to all of your outfits. We're crazy for braids here at Sweety High, so we rounded up some adorable, innovative looks to try out with your friends at the fairgrounds!

Frenchies Into Fishies

Start off by French braiding your hair halfway. Then, spice things up by switching to a fishtail braid for the bottom half.

Voluminous Half Braid

Give the single braid a makeover by only braiding it halfway and then securing it in a pony! Then, give the braid some volume by fluffing it up.

Zig Zag Braids

If you or your friend is an expert braider, why not try a zig zag cornrow? Super cool and less expected!


Two-Tone French Braids

Give your french braid a face lift by spraying each side a different color! Use a hair spray-on color, like Joico's InstaTint, to achieve the look.


Colorful Cornrows

Add vibrant color and length to your cornrows by weaving in brilliant extensions.

Twisted Vine Braid

How chic is this? And, it's so simple! Start with a half-pony and then start twisting away! A great alternative for gals who aren't the best braiders.


Tight, Scary Spice Buns

This look pays homage to the iconic Scary Spice! Do a mini version of the legendary look by only doing two cornrows on each side of the part.


Chain Braid

How darling is this? Add the texture of your choice to a basic, single braid. We're loving a little chain for a prim meets not-so-proper look.

Middle Cornrow

A middle cornrow is all you need to look festival ready!


Up the Back

Braids up the back of the head are super trendy RN. And, they look even better inside out and gathered into a perfectly undone bun.

Boho Half-Up Half-Down

Twist your sides into a half, low pony, and then braid the tail for an ultra bohemian look. Add a few flowers to up your game.

This cold weather has us thinking about festival season…and festival hair!
