Hair Trend Summertime Braids

With all this heat and humidity on the East Coast the last couple of days, I really wanted my hair out of my face but wanted my hair to look put together at the same time. What I needed was a quick, easy, and low maintenance hair style.

So what did I do? I created simple look that has a braid and a low bun. Here's the look from the side:


The look is super easy to achieve. Here's how you do it:

1. Create a side part with a comb (You can use towel dried hair, blow dried hair, or hair that hasn't been washed for a day)
2. At the start of the part, take the front section of hair and start braiding. Make sure you start taking pieces of hair and incorporating it into the braid (like a small french braid)
4. When the braid gets near your ear, take all your hair and secure with an elastic so it's in a low ponytail
5. Twist hair into a bun and secure with bobby pins.

As other options you can leave your hair in a ponytail without a low bun or you can braid the rest of your hair.
