Whether you're looking to change up your hairstyle for a relaxing day at the beach or an evening rocking out at a summer music festival, there's nothing as beautifully practical as a braid.
Seriously though, summer humidity is no match for this hairstyle. It's the only way we can keep our hair out of our faces or from being glued to the backs of our necks in this sweltering July heat. In the end, braids stay put -- and don't require any last-minute touchups.
But taking a classic plait up a notch doesn't have to be hard. Check out how we style our braids in an intricate zig-zag style in this week's Beauty in Motion!
