Summer Braids for your Hair

Even though we only have 5 more weeks of summer (someone hold me), I still love easy, unique summer hairstyles. As soon as the Fall hits, I don’t know why it is, but I usually just wearing my hair down and straight. It’s only in the summer when I really have some fun experimenting with different up-dos. Summer braids are my absolute fave for this time of year! I mean – my absolute – summer fave!

I’m on Pinterest all the time looking at fun hairstyles. My Hair I Heart board is one of my most popular, I just love popping all my faves right in there, and then I go back and dare-to-hair-dream! 🙂 Today it’s all about the summer braids. My mom used to braid my hair all the time when I was a little girl. It was our mommy-and-me time. I can’t wait to braid my own daughter’s hair someday!
