Festival season is officially upon us which means we've got one question on our minds - how can we keep our hair in check for three days in all weathers with minimal effort? Answer - the Halo Braid.

SS15's hottest hairstyle and a celeb red-carpet favourite, TIGI's European Session Director Maria Kovacs showed Beauty Assistant George Driver exactly how to get the look and trust us, it's easier than you think.

Just watch the vid above and follow the super simple steps below to get festival braid perfection. You can thank us later...

Step 1: After blowdrying hair with a large round brush to create volume, spray dry shampoo thoroughly through the hair from roots to ends.

Step 2: Brush hair forwards towards the face and fasten into a ponytail at the middle of the crown, about 2 inches back from the hairline.

Step 3: Section the ponytail into three and braid loosely, fastening the ends with a clear elastic.

Step 4: Spray the braid with more dry shampoo and using the index finger and thumb of each hand, work your way down the braid teasing and loosening each section to create a more textured appearance.

Step 5: Twist the braid and wrap around the crown securing in place with pins and spray liberally with hairspray. For additional shine spritz with shine spray, we love TIGI's Camera Ready Shine Spray.

Et voila! Standout festival-ready hair done!
