Baby, it's hot outside!
While we do love these warmer (okay, boiling) temperatures, it's doing a number on our hair. Leaving our locks down in a beachy wave, while pretty, isn't exactly practical, especially when your hair is sticking to the back of your neck, falling flat, or worst of all, growing enormous with frizz from the humidity.
Enter the summer braid -- a.k.a. the perfect hairstyle for the warmer season. Not only are braided styles super pretty, but they'll also keep your hair out of your way, leaving you cooler in the long run.
And braids aren't just limited to those pigtails you wore as a child -- there are endless ways to style your hair with these pleated 'dos. Just check out some inspiration below!
