Summer in NYC is something truly different. In LA summer’s marked by a few days of hot beach weather, but in NYC, there’s the hot June followed by a humid July that cools down into Fall.
The thunderstorms in NYC apparently means that summer is half over. Before the summer ends, try any of these three summer do’s by Orange County stylist Tera Rae Stephens. I promise, it’s super easy and so much cuter than a bun. All you need are some clear elastics and bobby pins and you’re ready to go!
Add a little renaissance flare to your summer day with this super cute Halo Braid!
- Split hair into two sections at the back of the head without creating a defined part.
- Braid each section and secure the end with a hair elastic.
- Wrap the left braid around the back of your head to the right and secure with bobby pins.
- Wrap the right braid around the back of your head to the left and secure with bobby pins.
- Tuck the ends into the opposite braid and secure with bobby pins.
- It’s cute when it’s messy and texturized so don’t worry about getting it perfect!
From red carpets to the beach, the fishtail braid is effortless and glamorous.
- Pull all of your hair over one shoulder so you can easily see what you’re doing.
- Create a ponytail using a clear elastic (shouldn’t be tight).
- Split hair into two sections.
- Take a small section from the outer edge of the section on the left and cross over to the section on the right.
- Take a small section from the outer edge of the section on the right and cross over to the section on the left.
- Continue this pattern until you have reach the end of the fishtail.
- Secure the end with a hair elastic and rough it up a little by running your hand up the braind. Also try pulling it apart to make it bigger.
- If you want it to look super natural, carefully cut the top clear elastic from the ponytail so that everything falls loosely.
This is the perfect go-to style when you’re growing out your bangs!
- Section off a handful of hair in the front of your head.
- Place the hair you own’t be braiding in a loose ponytail to keep it out of the way.
- Brush hair that will be braided forward and then decide which side you will want to work the braid (right or left)
- Section hair into three pieces and start your braid with the front piece closest to your forehead, going back.
- Continue the braid, angling back toward the side of your head.
- Once finished, secure the braid with a bobby pin parallel to the braid so you can hide the pin in the braid.
