I have really long, thick, crazy, disobedient hair. So when I plugged in my straightner to tame my mane and it fizzled out I was SO sad. Most people won’t get it because they have normal hair that will dry perfectly and look like they styled it. Not me. When my hair dries, it turns into a huge, messy, frizzy, fro like creature. But I wasn’t about to let that ruin my vacation pics! When it’s hot most people don’t like their hair down anyway so here’s some tips on how to style your hair to beat the heat and still look hot. (see what I did there? :P)
1. Side part with a low fish tail braid or regular braid. I like this style because the side part keeps it very feminin while the braid looks really nice and keeps my frizzy hair looking neat and tidy. In addition to that, it keeps your hair off your neck so helps to keep you cooler.
2. You can also do the same style as in #1 and set it in a low bun for a different look.
3. For nights out when it’s a bit cooler and you can keep your hair down, try a side braid on half your head, tuck it around your neck and keep your hair to the side. You will have to know how to do a french braid or cornrows to do this look. However it’s much easier than it looks and with practice anyone can do it!
4. A high bun with optional side bangs.
5. A low loose bun with optional side bangs. Tie a low pony tail to the side, twist all your hair until tight and then roll into a bun. Secure with another hair tie or bobby pins if you’re talented. I always just tie it with another hair tie because it’s tighter, more secure and faster.
6. A high pony tail with optional side bangs. Take all of your hair and pull it up to the highest point on your head, alternatively you can flip your head and grab all the hair then tie it up.
7. A high braided bun. Do a high ponytail, braid it and set in a bun.
8. 2 cornrow braids (braids directly on the scalp) with optional side bangs. For this style, separate your side bangs and keep apart. Part your hair down the middle and tie one side to keep it out of your way. On the loose side, start from the top point of your head and braid your hair to the scalp. Repeat on the other side.
9. If you’re tired of having your side bangs in your face, do a side part and cornrow braid your bangs on the front of your head then clip the braid on to your hair which can be down, in a high or low bun.
10. You can also do a middle part and cornrow braid your bangs on both sides then connect both ends of the braids at the back of your head.
