But, the summer is the one season I tend to wear my hair up more often because when it’s hot, it feels good. Am I right?
The style I do most often is maiden braids, which is a super simple version of milkmaid braids. So, I thought I would share a super simple and quick tutorial showing how I style this look with my hair length.
Step Two: I braid each side and fasten with a clear elastic band. I like to use clear bands because the ends are somewhat visible since I have longer hair (but not necessarily super long).
After braiding, I will gently pull at the braids to fluff them out a bit so they will appear a little fuller.
This actually works even better when my hair hasn’t been washed for a day or two, or I can use plumping powder to get a little texture (my hair is super fine).
Step Three: I pin the first braid with a couple bobby pins to the top center of my head. The end usually sticks up at this stage which is pretty funny looking.
Step Four: I pin the other side into place and tuck the ends under each braid. I usually give my head a shake to see if the braids feel secure, and if not, then I add another bobby pin or two.
That’s it! Easy, right? This style seriously only takes me around five minutes to do, and I really like how it looks with my face shape. Plus, it gets my hair off my neck in case it’s a hot, humid day.
This easy maiden braids tutorial can work well no matter if you have bangs or not. Do you have a favorite summer hair style? xo. Emma
