BraidsÂ are summerâ€™s hottest trend and also works for both short and long cuts.
Braids are simple to play around with, you can’t mess themÂ up. Pinned up or down orÂ tied in a bun, the braid looks trendy and chic all ways. Here are some of our favorite braided ‘dos that are perfect for wigs and perfect for summer.
The Side Fishtail Braid
Fishtail braids are the latest obsession.
They are not-so-perfect perfection and the thicker the better.
They absolutely must be worn to the side. Swing that ‘do over your shoulder and allow wisps to fall around the face.
â€˘For a smoother braid, brush your hair out first. For a messy braid, skip the brush and leave the natural texture. Use your figures to separate your strands. For a cleaner look run a comb through your hair first.
â€˘Create a ponytail using a clear elastic.
â€˘Split the ponytail into two separate sections.
â€˘Take a piece from the first side and pass it to the 2nd side.
â€˘Next take a piece from the 2nd side and pass it back to the 1st side. (You should be making an “x”)
â€˘Don’t think too hard just take a small piece from one side and pass to the other.
â€˘Once youâ€™ve finished your braid, very carefully cut the clear elastic at the top.
â€˘Loosen pieces around the face
Next up , the halo braid. The halo braid is the perfect half-do for medium length wigs and well as long wigs.
â€˘First, separate the upper portion of hair from the temples to crown and pin it on top of your head.
â€˘ Take a small section at each temple and tightly French-braid it, working back toward your crown. Secure each braid with an elastic.
â€˘Next, unclip the hair at your crown.
â€˘ Use one hand to hold this section up and the other to tease it at the roots with a fine-tooth comb, making a little pouf.
â€˘Gently smooth over the teased portion with a paddle brush.
â€˘ Then anchor the braids to the bottom of the pouf with bobby pins.
