“A fedora is a staple festival accessory. But wearing it with loose waves is predictable,” says Gina Guercia, Oscar Blandi Brand Ambassador. “Instead try using your hat to show off a wrap-around braid.”
Here’s how to get the look:
Step 1. Begin by prepping hair with a dollop sized amount of Oscar Blandi Pronto Braid Paste to help create grip and texture. It’s like second day hair in a bottle!
Step 2: Separate a section of unwashed hair from right behind the left ear up to the part.
Step 3: Begin a regular french braid, pulling in small sections with each braid stitch. Ensure the braid is tight and tie with a clear elastic.
Step 4: Next, pull the braid across the back of your head—near the nape of your neck. If hair is short, secure with bobby pins. If hair is long, wrap the braid around to the front of your crown –near where you would put a headband – before securing with bobby pins.
Step 5: Make sure to spritz the braid with a flexible hairspray like Oscar Blandi Lacca Medium Hold Hairspray so it doesn’t fall out while you’re dancing!
Want to get extra creative? Use bobby pins to secure flowers into the base of the braid or weave a ribbon into the look. So pretty!
Why not kick off spring and the music festival season with Pixie Ink‘s metallic temporary tattoos!

Before you hit the season’s hottest music event, be sure to pick up tarte’s new tarteguard, $32 – a festival-worthy SPF! The multi-tasking, antioxidant-infused daily sunscreen is a lightweight, non-sticky liquid lotion that contains all mineral, non-chemical sunscreen ingredients. It helps protect against the sun’s damaging UVA/UVB rays that can cause dryness, redness, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, among other skincare beauty boundaries. The fresh, ocean’s lily scent allows for luxurious, spa-like daily applications while the high-performance liquid emulsion seamlessly melts into skin, leaving it supremely soft and silky, without ever leaving a white cast.
