Fun Braid Hairstyle for the Summer

I’m all about braided hairstyles, but here’s a BIG secret – I’m not great at French braiding or doing a Dutch braid on Victoria’s hair, so I always lean in on easy hairstyles that I can do without much thought. This fun braid hairstyle for the summer is such a cute one and it’s definitely an eye-catching one, too!

I love this one because it’s just a good one to do for the summer when you’re looking to pop your hair up and make it look adorable at the same time.


All you need for this specific hairstyle is 3 hair elastics or hair ties. I will share below the ones that we love to use.

Favorite Hair Products To Use

When it comes to hairstyles for kids, I feel like I could write a book! 🙂 We do hairstyles together almost every single day.

1. I know that it’s not always easy to have Victoria sit still, but a book, a device, or just talking time helps. Sometimes we play a game and that will help keep her still (although if you know my girl, she doesn’t like to sit still!).

2. I love using a leave-in conditioner spray on Victoria’s hair before I start. I just like to make sure there aren’t any tangles before we get going.

3. I love using hair oil, too on Victoria. It makes her hair nice and shiny and smooth to work with. I feel like this has been a huge game-changer for her when it comes to flyaways and keeping it healthy.

4. I love using hair elastics that don’t damage the hair.

I will continue to recommend the products we use and love because I think it’s important to share what people use that works.
