Ladies and gents, festival season is officially approaching! As you get ready to fight through the cold months and go on a mini-vacay to your favorite music and arts festivals, there’s one thing you need to take into consideration: your hairstyle.

That’s why we’ve listed some of our favorite boho box braids and twists styles for you to try out! Take a look at these funky styles and prepare to fall in love just as hard as we did:
