During the hot summer months, that thankfully haven’t completely arrived yet, all I want for my hair is to get it out of my face and off my neck. I don’t want to always wear a ponytail though, so what is a girl to do? This simple summer braid has come to the rescue. Yes, I know, it’s nothing mind-blowing, but it’s cute and easy and perfect for summer. So I thought I would share!
Simple Summer Braid
The bummer is that I did this tutorial and took these pictures before I colored my hair. So yes, I am aware I have major root action going on. It’s fixed, I promise. Post on that coming soon as well.
Now back to our simple summer braid. It’s so easy and you don’t need too much to get it done. In fact, you don’t have to use any product at all, but in my personal experience, styles look better and stay longer when you use the right product. Here’s what I used:
- Big Sexy Hair Powder Play – to give you lift at the roots without teasing.
- Dry Shampoo – because it seems like my hair is always dirty. (also helps with volume)
- Teaser comb – to pull the braid out (say whaaaat? Pull it out? Just watch the video, ladies)
- Hair tie – obviously to finish the braid off
You’ll start with the powder play the the roots and you can actually feel the volume happen. You don’t want to tease too much because you’ll be breaking it up when you create the braid. Then dry shampoo (optional, I prefer to use it.) and that’s it! Braid away and then, well, just watch the video, it’s explained better there. I’m also a total dork, you might get a few laughs.
There you have it! This simple summer braid will keep you from having to rock a ponytail and messy top knot all summer! At least now you’ll have three hairstyles in your repertoire.
