BEAUTY BAR: Summer Braids

Summer is the time to go on a fun vacation, to hang out by the pool and to wear super cute bright clothing. But sadly, summer is also the time when all the dedication you put into your makeup just sweats off and your hair sticks to your face because of the sweat.. Not very fun.

In this weather, it’s hard to find a cute hairstyle that will keep your hair out of your face so braids are the perfect hairstyles to rock this season. Braids have always been a go-to look because of their simplicity and beauty, but they’re my favorite hairstyles to rock in the summertime due to the fact that they help keep your hair out of your face in a different way.

This Fashionista is rocking the trend in a double french braid which is then three-strand braided all the way down to make a half up, half down esque look. It’s incredibly simple to do and very beautiful to rock out to the beach on a hot day or to a romantic dinner at night. The perk about this look is that it can be worn with long or short hair!

I think that my favorite part about the braid trend is the versatility of the style. It can be worn to any occasion, in any season, on any type of hair. This Fashionista’s outfit was casual and comfy, with a pop of color for a day to the local farmer’s market. To brighten up the look, she decided to add some brightly colored shorts and a chunky necklace.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To rock these braids, you’ll need a hair tie and a comb. Split the hair in half and just french braid the two sides then bring them together into a normal three strand braid. The easy part about these braids is that they can be messy for a more boho look or sleek for a more put-together look. To finish everything off, add some printed shorts and a bright liquid lipstick to bring in the summery feel.
