Twist & Pull Braid
While a classic braid is a great way to stay cool in the summer heat, why not step it up a notch with something a bit more interesting. This twisted hairstyle is the perfect step up — plus, it looks way more complicated than it actually is, we swear! The actual braid consists of just two pieces of hair, rather than three. Simply twist them separately, and then together. Get the full tutorial here.
