These 15 Braided Styles Will Provide All the Coachella Hair Inspiration You Need

Coachella is the one time of year where we set aside our usual style lineup for something edgier and fresher. Out with the old, and in with the new—T-shirts, bright and funky makeup, and fun hairstyles. We're talking hair chalk, bold accessories, and most importantly, braided styles of all shapes and sizes.

At this point, Coachella is basically synonymous with braids (as is just about every other music festival out there), and we're not mad about it. It's no wonder why—braids aren't fussy; they're functional and effortlessly cool. They keep your hair off your face and neck while you're dancing and align perfectly with Coachella's boho-chic aesthetic. That's why we're putting a special emphasis on braided hairstyles this year. Instead of defaulting to traditional braids, we want to try out eclectic festival-friendly styles. Want in on the action? Keep scrolling to see 15 different braid styles—sourced from far and wide—to provide the ultimate music festival hair inspiration.

Which braid style are you eyeing for your Coachella look? We know—they're all so good. No matter which style you choose, you'll be ready to dance all weekend.
