Whether your hair is relaxed or natural, most of us aren't fans of hair on our shoulders during the warmer months. A fun style to try this summer is the headband braid - it's quick, simple and can also serve as a protective style.
Step 1 // Part your hair into 3 sections - two towards the front with the biggest section in the back
Step 2 // The back section of your hair can then be styled into a cute bun
Step 3 // Braid one of the front sections into a loose braid and then secure with an elastic Repeat with the other side
Step 4 // Take the ends of the braids and crisscross them on top of your head. Make sure to leave a few inches back from the hairline,
Step 5 // Pin the braids down with bobby pins [ tip: make sure to crisscross the pins for extra security ]

will you be trying headband braids this summer?
