How to: A braided hairstyle for summer

View the Gallery
There's something about summer that makes me want to braid my hair constantly. Maybe it's a flashback to middle school or maybe it's just an attempt to get my hair out of my face in this heat, but either way, braids are my go-to. This braided hairstyle is one I fell on by accident when my hair just wasn't working one day. The front looked horrible and the rest looked decent, so I started playing around with the front pieces and came up with this little do. It's actually pretty simple once you master the french braid and works great for casual or dressy occasions. You could even put your hair in a low bun after the braid to mix it up the look!
