There’s no better time to get creative with effortless braids than the arrival of summer
Polished blowouts and artistic top knots may dominate street style during the warmer months, but the dog days of summer warrant a no-fuss approach that will stay put throughout the day until night.
Enter this season’s hair-do staple: the braid.
Play with ribbon-woven twists for that much-needed dip in the water or textured plaits for your last-minute European getaway. Forget about romantic Rapunzel-esque locks and instead embrace full-on combatant style.
This season it’s all about the tough and sleek, and braids should be worn long and low, with super shine. Recreate the runway-approved wet look by working a gel or serum through the lengths of damp hair.
