Summertime Braids – The Blow Out Alternative

When the humidity and temperatures soar during the summer season, wearing braids is the way to go! Instead of traditional blowouts, braided hair is cooler and more manageable. At our hair salon in Clinton Hill and Prospect Heights, our talented stylists are busy providing our clients with great summer hair! Here are a few of the most popular braided hairstyles being requested this year.

The fishtail braid is a great look for both the office and summer fun! The fishtail is the Beyoncé of braids that always looks pretty. Whether it’s in a ponytail format, half-up, to the side or worn as a low braid, the options are literally endless and it’s always fun to try something new!

The Braid in a Braid

The braid in a braid hairstyle incorporates two different braids within the same look. For instance, you can wear a loose French braid at the roots, then blend it into a fishtail all the way to the ends.

Whether you want to update your straight, limp winter hair or beat frizzy hair in the heat and humidity of summer, the woven braid is a very stylish look that can help you tame any hair drama.


The Braided Crownbraided crown hair style

If you want your hair to look pulled together, yet still laid back, then the braided crown is for you! In essence, this look is created by French braiding your hair around the crown of your head. Also known as a halo braid, the braided crown provides an organic, natural look that’s perfect for summer.

The Over-the-Shoulder Elsa Braid

The over-the-shoulder Elsa braid is a style that works well on long, straight and wavy hair. This Frozen-inspired charming long hair is braided down the side and placed over the shoulder, to create an elegant, luscious look that’s perfect for summer weddings!


Braid-Wrapped Ponytailbraid wrapped ponytail hair style

A terrific way to make an everyday ponytail look more stylish is to braid-wrap your ponytail. This is done by simply putting your hair in a ponytail, then taking a small section of hair at the bottom of the ponytail and making a 3-strand brand. Then just wrap the braid around the elastic, secure and spray!
