If you’re thinking about getting braids for the summer or have already braided your hair for a low-maintenance hair-care routine this season, there are lots of things you can do to keep your style fresh and exciting. Forming your braids into updos, sophisticated styles and curly layers will keep you from ever getting bored with your braids.
Perfect Summer Braids
The Low Ponytail
If you get medium or large box braids, wearing them in a ponytail near your neck will give you an effortless elegance that works well with your favorite pair of jeans or a formal gown. Braids that are the same color as your natural hair also give more maturity to the look and make the style appropriate for professional or upscale occasions. Part the braids in the middle to frame your face and apply nude makeup to give your skin a summer glow.
