Boho Braided Bangs // Festival Style with LuLu*s

Sandals + Belt: Urban Outfitters

Happy hump day, forest friends! I've teamed up with LuLu*s again today for our Festival Style series! This top I'm wearing is actually a shirt but I like it as a little dress too! It looks equally cute with a pair of jeans! I've been doing my hair this way lately and thought it was perfect for this look.

Braiding your bangs (or "front pieces" if you don't have actual chopped bangs) is a quick way to get all of that hair out of your face. I'm sure you ladies can appreciate this when it's a hundred degrees outside!  I was going to take photos of the process, but I think it's pretty self explanatory:

HOW TO:  Grab a small section of your hair from one side just above your ear. Working up towards your forehead, start french braiding (aka grabbing additional pieces of hair as you go) and end at your other ear. Secure with a clear elastic and pin in place. I like to loosen mine up a little by gently wiggling the braid and finishing with hair spray.

You can leave it as is, try a top knot, a low knot, or a ponytail like me! This style is extremely versatile which is why I love it! How do you do your on hot summer days?

LuLu*s is also giving one lucky Wonder Forest reader a $100 gift card! Enter below to win:

  14. Very boho chic - you look like such a free spirit in this outfit with your jewellery and hair off in a braid. I'm also the type that I need my hair off my face and neck when it's hot outside (or when I'm really concentrating on a project). I really like how your braid is a bit looser at the top. I definitely need to work on my french braid skills! I feel like my styles are so limited because I haven't been able to master this yet.
