Festival Hairstyle Perfect for Short Hair!

2 Materials
3 Minutes

Are you going to a summer festival and aren’t sure what hairstyles you should go for?

In this tutorial, I’m going to show you a fun festival hairstyle for short hair.

Tools and materials:

  • Hair clips
  • Hair elastics
Parting hair

1. Part hair

Start by separating out your bangs from the rest of your hair and clip them out of the way.

Next, split your hair in half to make pigtails and clip up one side.

Tying hair

2. Tie hair at top

On the other side, take a section of hair at the top of your head and tie it with an elastic.

Tying second elastic

3. Tie second elastic

Then tie another elastic about an inch below the first one, this time incorporating more of your hair into the ponytail.

Tying third elastic

3. Tie third elastic

Finally, tie a third elastic, this time at the bottom of your head, incorporating all of your hair on that side.

Tying hair

4. Repeat

Repeat this process on the other side of your head - tying three elastics, each one incorporating more hair.

Pulling hair

5. Pull out hair

Gently pull out the hair at each part of the hairstyle to make it more voluminous.

Braiding bangs

6. Braid bangs

The last step is to braid your bangs on either side and tie the ends with elastics.
