With summer comes breezy patio brunches, moonlit parties at the beach, and of course the staple desert music festival experience. Festival looks, traditionally inspired by tribal, bohemian fashion have quickly become one of summers go-to trends! And what bell bottomed, fringed ensemble is complete without a killer do? Uber talented Hair artist Demelza Button shares with us a Step-By-Step tutorial on this super fun look, that is sure to have you standing out from the crowds this summer!

Step 1) Prep towel dried hair with Shu Uemura Depsea foundation spray, evenly spraying and combing through.

Step 2) Blow-dry hair roughly, no need to smooth the hair to much as natural texture works well with this style. Once hair is dry spray through Shu Uemura texture wave.

Step 3) Separate the hair into 5 sections, 3 down the center of head, and a section on each side of the head above ears.

Step 4) Place each of the 3 central sections into ponytails, securing with elastic bands at the base. Braid each ponytail and wrap around the base creating a bun, securing with bobby pins. You should now have three braided buns down the center of your head.

Step 5) Move to the sections you have either side of your head. Separate the section into two and start twisting the two pieces around each other, creating a twisted braid through to the ends of the hair, secure twist with an elastic band. Wrap the twist around in a bun shape and secure with bobby pins, repeat on other side.

Style tips:
Leave some hair loose around hairline and neck for a more ‘undone’ look.
You could twist all your ponytails instead of braiding for a different look or braid the two side sections instead of twisting.
The amount of sections could be adjusted according to how many buns you would like, and where you would like them to be.
