If you’re looking for a fresh new style to wear this summer, try our easy summer braid tutorial!
There is something about summer that always makes me want to rock braids…It’s such a carefree, spirited style and there are so many different ways you can work braids into your summer look. From my personal go-to style, the tousled side braid, to more involved hairstyles like this half-up side braid that I’ve been rockin’ more and more recently, I can’t get enough of braids. And by the way, more involved here means a few minutes to execute versus a few seconds. Haha! Hey, we’re busy moms right? We don’t have all day to spend on our hair! That doesn’t mean we don’t want to look cute though. We still have time for that!
And that little bit of time is well worth spending in my book…Bring on the braids baby! I’m not kidding when I say that you’ll seriously find me wearing some form of a braid most days during the summer, so I’m glad this “trend” is sticking around. Truth be told, I have been braiding my hair since I was a kiddo, so I don’t see myself giving the look up anytime soon whether braids are on trend or not. Who’s with me? Braids will forever be timeless in my opinion.
So, without further adieu…I’m going to show you how you can create your own 3-step summer braid with our easy summer braid tutorial. I had a fiend help me out with this one because she was doing my makeup for our photo shoot, but you could easily tackle this easy, 3-step braid yourself! It’s that simple…You could even rope your kiddo into helping you. Mine will jump at any chance to play hairstylist. Haha!
