If you’re looking for a hairstyle that beats the heat, summer braids are the way to go! And with so many ways to wear this classic but current look, you’re sure to find the perfect braids for your unique style. Here are a few of our favorite braids to try out this summer:
Pretty princess braid
If you feel like channeling your inner Disney Princess, the over the shoulder French braid will do the trick. Start with creating a little volume by teasing the hair at your crown and twist into a French braid all the way down the length of your hair, pulling each section out slightly to achieve fullness. Set it with a spritz of hairspray and you’re good to go!
This classic style certainly won’t keep you down on the farm. Part your hair into two distinct sections and braid each section. Pull each braid up and over your crown on each side of your head and secure in place with a few bobby pins. Spray and go!
Part braid, part ponytail
Who says you can’t have the best of both worlds? This totally adorable style starts with a French braid from your crown to the nape of your neck, followed by a ponytail secured with a hair tie.
Beat the heat- braided bun
What’s not to love about a bun? A high-top knot or low chignon; this chic look is made when the length of your hair is wound into an elegant bun.
Summer is the perfect time to sport an intricate-looking fishtail braid. Separate your hair into two even sections. Next, take a half-inch piece from the outside of one of the sections and pull it over and across, joining it to the inside of the other section. Continue this process on the other side and along the length of your hair and tie it off at the end.
