More Festival Hairstyle Ideas That Don’t Include a Flower Crown

Skip the flower crown and opt for one of these festival hairstyle ideas. 

Most often, festival hairstyle ideas consist of some combination of flower crowns and braids. And while we have nothing against either of these categories of hairstyles, we’ve gotten a little bored with the same old suggestions. That’s why we’ve created this collection of festival hairstyle ideas that don’t include a flower crown. Choose any of these festival-ready styles for an on-trend look that will keep you cool in the heat. Ready for some festival hair inspiration? Read on:
