Braids are so in this summer season, and this couldn’t be more practical since the heat levels are almost unbearable. What better than a do-it-yourself updo to keep you cool throughout the sizzling hot months ahead while still looking feminine and trendy?

Here are a couple of braid hairstyles you can do at home.

And here’s how to do it at home:

Braid hair from one side all the way to the other. Part braid with fingers to make it wider and rub with palms to create a bit of frizz. Pull hair into a slightly loose ponytail to maintain volume.

 

Wrap ponytail into a chignon. Secure with hairpins. Push the feet of the hairpins up to anchor the bun properly from the middle.

 

Tuck the tail of the braid into the chignon. Secure with a bobby pin.

 

The final result

 

And here’s how to do it at home:

Part hair on one side and begin braiding from one side to the other, allowing the braid to rest on the opposite side of the side part. Back comb the tip to secure the braid.

 

Use bobby pins to secure any loose shorter/strands in the back.

 

Use fingers to slightly pull apart the braids for a fuller effect

 

The end result

 

And here’s how to do it at home:

Braid each side of the front sections from the hairline down to the ear, leaving out 1 inch of unbraided hair in the front.

 

Rub braids with your palms to create a bit of fuzziness. Wrap the first braid across the crown and pin behind the ear. Wrap the second brain across the crown, in front of the first braid then pin behind the ear. Pin both braids together with hairpins so they don’t separate. Back comb crown for volume.  Style front section.

 

The final result

 

And here’s how to do it at home:

Part hair in the middle and braid each side. Leave out a 1 inch section in the front. Slightly spread out each braid with fingers to create a fuller effect.

 

Wrap the first braid across the crown and pin behind the ear. Do the same with the second braid. Secure lower sections with large French hairpins for volume and extra support. Style front strands and style them into the braids to make them look less separated.

 

The end result
