The snow is melting and summertime is on its way, which means you can stop hiding your hair under a winter hat every time you go out. Instead, you can think about some cool ways to do your hair this summer. Whether you want to celebrate the end of the school year with a new look or create a new you for your vacation pictures, you should consider one of these unique and trendsetting styles to set you apart when the temperatures get hot.
One of the hottest summertime looks for girls, this style lets your hair flow in waves down your back, with a little braiding around the top and sides. The braids add definition and elegance to the long hair cascading down your back. You’ll look like a mermaid sitting at the beach in this one!
2. Bohemian Braid
This style also combines a “down” hairstyle with braids, but there’s a little less effort involved in this one. You don’t have to worry about getting soft waves, just let your hair air dry naturally.
