Face it: pulling your hair up during the summer is a necessity—especially if you want to enjoy the sunshine. Crown braids are the answer. The great weather may have you sweating (or shall we say glistening), but this great hairstyle will cool you off!
#11: Blonde Half Up Crown Braid
Sleek, polished and all-around flattering braided style, this one is almost too pretty to be real. If you’re wondering how to make these braids your own, all you have to do is to section your hair off in a half up, half down style, and the rest is pretty easy. Create two medium-sized braids and connect them at the back of your head to create a crown. The rest of the hair is worn down and straight, with just a hint of wave for texture.
