BEAUTY BAR: Boho Braids

August 7th, 2015 at 2:05am

It is hard to stay cool in the summer heat while still staying true to your style. The heat and humidity also make it difficult to maintain your usual beauty regimen. Summer has become the time for waterproof makeup and beachy waves. Personally, I have wildly curly hair, and the humidity makes it difficult to try any new hairstyles. This summer I have been experimenting with some new, trendy looks that stay through August’s heat. Check out how this Fashionista used a french braid to spice up her summer look.

With her natural makeup and french braid, this Fashionista looks classically beautiful with a bohemian edge. While many girls are opting for the much adored fishtail, a french braid will hold up longer if you have multiple layers. Another way to incorporate a braid into your beauty regimen is by pulling your hair half back and braiding that section. This hairstyle works well for girls with shorter hair because it allows you to include just the top section of your hair in the braid. Whether you have long hair, curly hair or straight hair, incorporating a braid into your summer style is extremely easy.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? To get this look, begin with a nice, natural base such as a tinted moisturizer. This foundation is light and will not melt off throughout the day. Adding a light pink blush will give you a softer, girlier feel to accompany your boho braid. Finally, when creating your braid, secure the end with a light ribbon or clear elastic band.
