1. Any type of braid works well when you're trying to show off highlights, and this one is no exception. We wear our hair like this anytime we're going for a casual, laid back vibe. It's also our go-to hairstyle for the beach.
If your hair is so healthy that you have issues with it slipping out of braided hairstyles, use mousse or a texturizer to help hold pesky flyaways in place. Frederic Fekkai Full Blown Volume Styling Whip and Herbivore Sea Mist are two products we frequently use to solve the problem.
Here's a link to one of our most popular fishtail looks we've shared here on the blog.
2. This dutch braid with with a low messy bun looks adorable on Lauren Conrad. To recreate the look, loosely braid an approximately 3-inch wide section of hair on each side, beginning at your bangs. End at the nape of your neck and secure the braids, then tie the remaining hair into a messy bun.
You know we're huge fans of messy buns around here, so we've got you covered with all the inspo you could ever possibly want. Here are just a few of the ideas we've shared:
High Side Braid
3. A high side braid is gorgeous and works well with medium to long hair. To recreate the look, begin by parting your hair in an extreme side part. Let the top portion of hair hang loosely, and begin the braid just above eyebrow level. Secure the end of the braid, then tug some of the sections to loosen.
Long, Loose Curls
4. Long, loose curls look so pretty in the summertime, because they're very feminine and flirty! I created this look using my curling iron, then pinned the curls with clips and let them set for 15 – 20 minutes. These are my favorite hot roller curler clips ever made, because they don't leave any kinks in my hair! Here's my detailed tutorial for getting long, loose curls and you can also check out my hair videos on YouTube. (Look for my haircare + styling routine, because I know I curled my hair in that one.)
Can you tell this is my “Mom, I'm so done with pictures” look?
Ponytail with Loose Tendrils
5. Finally, sometimes it's so hot outside that you just want to toss your hair up into a ponytail and go. That's when a hat comes in handy! Pull your hair into a pony, tug some loose tendrils out on the side, plop a cap on your head, and be out the door in under 5 minutes! Easy peasy.
Fellow moms can probably all agree that hair doesn't get much easier than this. A hat is also a great solution when you haven't had a chance to wash your hair, plus it doubles as an added layer of protection from the harsh summer sun.
