My go to summer hair this year has been braids! It's taking me back to my middle school days ( about 25 years ago ) and I am here for it! It's the perfect way to keep your hair out of your face, off your neck, and out of the way. My hair is extremely thick and dark, so in the summer it really adds a lot of heat to my body, I have found braids are the best way to wear my hair to keep cool- Oh and the Kim K vibe doesn't hurt either!
I get my braids done by Tanya at Midnapore Hair Styling, and she honestly kills it every time, this is probably a look you could do on your own, but for only $10 and a chance to chat with Tanya for an appointment, it's totally worth it to go see her, especially since when you get it done professionally, they tend to last a lot longer (2 or 3 days for me)
After my 2 or 3 days of rocking braids, I usually will take them out, add some dry shampoo, or texture spray so I can have some curls for a day or two! Oribe is usually my go to for dry shampoo or texture sprays, but I also love this one because it's unscented, or this one if you're trying to cover some grays!
I love feeling fresh in the summer, no makeup, no heavy hair products, so braids, Wake up and Glow-Prickly Pear Oil, and some R+F bronzer with SPF!
