Braid it up
According to Hawkins, the braid makes perfect sense for the season. It’s easy, you don’t need a hot hair dryer (just braid while wet), and it keeps hair off your face. Also awesome: “It doesn’t matter what texture or length your hair is,” explains Hawkins, “anyone can wear a braid.”
Hawkins recommends securing your braids with Goody Ouchless Elastics, which “won’t damage hair” unlike other hair elastics. And if you’re using colorful elastics, you’re also hitting on another trend: bright and bold pops of color.
