Summer Forecast: Braids


When you’re trying to stay cool, braids are an easy option to give your style a little oomph while keeping your hair off your neck and back. That’s why they’re one of our favorite summer looks.

We’ve found several styles from both Instagram and the runway that go way beyond basic plaits to give you inspiration for summer. Simply spritz on little Volume Texture Spray before you style for a dose of natural hold, and you’re good to go.
