Get the bohemian look.

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. A great hairstyle is just as important as your outfit at a music festival, and if you truly want to get into the vibes of the fest, your hair has to be perfectly posh and pretty. One of our favorite hairstyles for festival season (and just about every season, TBH), are some boho box braids and twists.
