For most of us, the crazy hot and humid weather now means a frizz-fiasco for our hair. However, this doesn’t mean we have to give up on having a decent hairstyle to step out with. The solution? Braids! Not your ordinary (note: boring) ponytail, or a cop-out like putting on a cap, braiding your hair is a quick way to add interest and a put-together polish to your look while keeping the strands off your face (bonus: they work on short hair too!). Here are some celeb-inspo to inspire you:
Fishtail beach waves
Be a modern mermaid like Margot Robbie (whose sartorial style has also left us smitten) with a half-up fishtail braid matched with soft, effortless waves – the messier the better!
Victoria Justice shows us how to rock the crown braid in a sophisticated way that won’t get you confused with the Coachella crowd. The trick is to keep the rest of your hair sleek and smooth for a more formal flair.
For a boho-rock spin to your updo, steal Shay Mitchell’s hairdo by using metal rings to adorn a teeny braid that goes all the way up to your high twist bun – finish with glam smoky eyes and a bad*ss attitude.
