The Braid Bus NOW FOR SALE

For sale details please see below.


The Braid Bus, the first and only of its kind!

Following the huge success of our ‘Braids on the Beach’ back in 2018 we thought, why limit ourselves to one location… 

Brand new to 2019 THE BRAID BUS is the first and only one of its kind.

Custom built and hand crafted by owners Alex & Phil, The Braid Bus really was the talking point at most festivals!

From torrential rain, blazing heat waves and everything in between you wouldn't see a queue for braids shorter than 1.5hrs long! We even hit a crazy 4hr queue time during the wettest festival of the year, breaking expectations we just couldn't believe!

2019 was an incredible first year for us. We braided hundreds of people across the country attending some of the UK’s largest family festivals.

You may have see us at 2019 festivals such as Isle of Wight Festival, Love Supreme, CarFest North & Carfest South, you may even have seen us briefly at Boardmasters *sigh* as well as many local events.

Thank you to everyone who came along for what we believe are the best braids around!

Who knows where 2020 will take us but we can’t wait!

We are also super excited to announce we are now bookable for corporate events!
