10 Easy Braids to Keep You Cool this Summer

Thinking about braids makes me nostalgic. Less than one year ago I had long, flowing locks all the way down to my waist. I could twist it, flip it, cinch it, curl it, bop it…etc. Braiding my hair was the best part, but I chopped all my hair off before all these braid-DIY and Pinterest boards started really figuring out how to make braids extra beautiful and ten times more awesome.

This post is for all you ladies (or dudes!) with pixie cuts, dreads and medium or long tresses. Have fun and experiment with these looks; they’re only suggestions. Remember: your hair style is another great way to express yourself, and it’s one of the easiest things to change up!

For now, I’ll settle for the mini braid bang.
