I have to admit, I haven’t braided my hair since I was in school, however, with all the braided looks out there for summer I thought I’d give it a try. The trick to making it not look so elementary is to keep the front looking more normal. I parted my hair normally and then went for a poof by styling my hair first and then used bobby pins to hold the poof in place. I then started french-braiding my hair down my head turning it as I got closer to the nape of my neck. I then wrapped it around my head so that I could get the hair from the other side. What do you think? Is it a hit or a miss?
Take a look at some some of my inspiration on my Pinterest board: Stylish Summer Braids.
