Wearing Braids This Summer

Posted on: May 25th, 2012 by Leah No Comments

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.
