A Low Halo Braid

As we get closer and closer to summer time, I’m wearing my hair down less and less.

But my goal this summer is to find more inventive ways to wear my hair back beyond just a ponytail or a messy bun!

This style is simple, and you could very easily swap out the dutch braids I did for fishtail braids too!

Texture spray I used is Amika Un.Done Texture Spray.

    My goal this summer is to try all of your new ideas for keeping my hair back. We’re outside whenever possible so wearing my hair down just isn’t going to happen, but I’m always looking for something fun to do with it.

    I might have missed you answer this question somewhere already, but have you considered going back to your shorter shoulder length hair or are you digging the long hair?? I love both, but long hair just gets so hot in summer. Of course right now I went to short and have a about chin length bob and it’s to short to pull back, so as humidity hits, it poofs! Eeek!

    I love this Kate! This has totally inspired me to get out of my ponytail rut.

    This is so lovely! I wish I wasn’t so hopeless at braiding my own hair.

    Tell me about your color on your hair? Foil or cap?

    I didn’t see her tweet, But I would think the concern would stem from a lack of depth perception at close range and also a lack a peripheral vision. Not from a negative place of making fun of someone.

    Love this look! Also, are their any texture sprays or sea salt sprays you recommend for medim to thick hair? My hair would just slide out of a look like this and start to look very flat.

    I keep practicing my braiding at home. I think with my fine hair I need to try the texture spray. My braids look too puny?
