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!
#12: Four-Strand Crown Braid with Highlights
This braided crown is ideal for those of you who have thick hair and are desperately looking for a modern updo that flatters your hair type. You can create this look one of the two ways: either create one large four-strand braid to form your crown or opt for two medium-sized ones and braid them close to each other.
