Braids for days! 10 gorgeous plaits that are perfect for festivals


Summer is in full swing (seriously, don't let the weather fool you!), and that means holidays, swimming and music festivals – for the lucky few.

As the weather heats up, it can be tricky to tame your hair, but braids are a FANTASTIC way to do so. 

They keep your hair away from your face, while also looking really great!

The best part? Braids can be as exciting or traditional as you like, with a chance to spice things up with glitter and bling. 

We have done a round up of our favourite braids and plaits on the Internet, and we dare you not to fall in love! 

You're welcome!
