The summer of the braid has officially started. This is great news for our natural hair wearing girls and actually all of us can benefit from such a stylish hairstyle. Its easy to assemble and is a great protective hairdo to combat the summer heat and other destructive elements. From box braids to fishtails they are all up for grabs and you will look like you walked right off a runway. Don’t be afraid to be a little a messy with the styling as well, this braiding trend is not about looking overly polished or perfected. It’s kind of like you just woke up that way.
