Hey, guys! It’s Katie here again. It’s really warming up here in the Midwest, and you know what that means—friends and swimming and BBQs and… frizzy hair. Honestly, if it weren’t for braids and buns, my hair wouldn’t stand a chance in the summer.
I would definitely have to chop it before we made it to the cooler fall months. It’s not an issue, though, because there are LOTS of braids to choose from! Here’s a fun one I like to use to switch things up a little.
Step One: Divide your hair into three sections, as if you were going to do a normal braid. Braid the center strand and secure with an elastic.
Step Two: To begin your braid, cross the two side pieces over the middle section.
Step Three: Finish out the braid just like a standard braid.
Step Four: Once you reach the bottom, secure with an elastic and remove the first elastic.
Step Five: Finish your braid off with a pretty piece of fabric or ribbon, and you’re all done!
As you can see from some of the photos above, my hair gets pretty dry in the summer, so it’s nice to be able to run some coconut oil through my hair and throw it in a braid for some much needed conditioning. Happy braiding! xo. Katie

So cute and fun! I am so envious of your bangs! On a sidenote could you please do a tutorial on how you wore that awesome bandana style when you guys went to costa rica? I am going to the beach this summer and would love to do that with my hair.

The braid looks so much cuter with the bow at the bottom! I usually put the bow at the base of the ponytail, but this inspired me to change things up! 😉
This is a great idea and so simple, will be sure to try it out on my travels , thank you!
It took me a second to realise there were more than three strands. I really wish I had the face shape to pull off all my hair back. Do you have any tips for how to style this out with whispy growing out bangs?
I’ve heard that honey is supposed to be really good for helping with frizz, but I’ve never actually tried it.
This braid is seriously adorable. I really need to learn how to braid.
