DIY File: 3 Braided Hairstyles Perfect for Summer

With the official start of Summer basically a day away, here are three braided hairstyles that are perfect for those hot humid days when you need your hair up and still want to look cute 😉 Because, let’s be honest, is there ever a time when braids have let you down? They are perfect to keep your hair off your face when working out, at the beach, on your day-to-day activities and even special occasions! Plus, they add that perfect boho vibe to any look! You can find the step-by-step of each hairstyle linked within 🙂

These double braid buns are easier to get done than what you think!

half braided ponytail is a simple twist to a regular ponytail that goes such a long way! Adds the perfect amount of flair!

 This side braid bun (also love this messy side bun version) is perfect for the office or special occasions! If you have a Summer party or event coming up, give it a try!

If you’re looking for more hair inspiration my pal Aylin is a pro and she hosts braid bars all over the city on a regular basis. Plus, she can teach you (or a group of friends) how to tackle any type of braid there is! (See an example here) 😉
