Hello, 🐞 lovebug. Someone on my Facebook feed kindly jogged my memory yesterday that there are formally 20 weeks left till Christmas, to which I used to be like, “Woman, you’re cray!” It’s 80+ levels outdoors, and I’m not prepared to consider roasting chestnuts on an open fireplace…which I’ve by no means accomplished earlier than, BTW, nevertheless it sounds hella harmful, particularly whereas sporting hair styling merchandise, as a result of I’m not about to spontaneously combust over roasted nuts…
Which brings us to summer time hair and straightforward summer time hair kinds.
As you already know, I’ll do nearly something in the title of le beauté, however who needs to face in entrance of a sizzling hair dryer whereas it’s broiling outdoors? I really like a fabulous mane as a lot as the subsequent lady, however these are the canine days of summer time. I’d prefer to keep away from sweating greater than mandatory, thanks very a lot.
Over the subsequent 4 days, I’ll be showcasing some completely doable on a regular basis hair kinds that don’t require warmth styling instruments, and I’ll be utilizing some of my favourite merchandise from Oribe.
Say it with me: “OAR-bae.”
Today is all about “the braid.” It’s easy, stylish and simply my high summer time fave as a result of…have you ever ever observed that it doesn’t actually matter what sort of braid you do — fishtail, French braid, Dutch braid, and so on. — so long as you do one thing, folks often discover and provide you with props for it, even when the braids are messy as hell (a.ok.a. my fashion!)? LOL! It’s so true, although!
For right now’s plait…

4. Part your hair down the center, then do a Dutch or French braid on both sides.
Leave about an inch of hair at the ends, since you’ll need that a lot to be straight for tomorrow’s fashion.
Yup, we’re planning forward. 🙂
Oh, and if a Dutch braid or a French braid aren’t your factor, strive a single fishtail or easy braid as a substitute. Whatever’s best for you. It’s all good. We simply need slightly one thing to set you up for some waves.

Before you go to mattress, let your hair down, gently run your fingers by means of your waves to take away any knots, and hit the haaaaaay. Or, you may depart your braids in in a single day. Totally as much as you.
Braids to maintain you feeling and looking cool all day, babe! Now your hair is prepared for right now AND tomorrow… Stay tuned!
