The summer heat is upon us and that means heading outside to the beach, the pool or just the local restaurant patio and you want to look good while remaining comfortable too. It’s going to be hot, and not just in temperature. That’s because the summer braids are going to be rocking it everywhere. Can you think of a better style than braids in summer? Beyonce just debuted her full, blonde braids recently, so it is officially summertime!


Fashion isn’t the only reason the braids are the way to work it either, though we all know it’s the primary purpose on your mind. Braids keep it all together where the summer sweat and swim can wreak havoc on other styles. There is no better way to step out of the pool than with the box braids, cornrows, micro braids or Marley twists making sure you aren’t worried about a disaster waiting to happen.


Keeping it pressed tight is going to be big this summer and you’ll see it as a winning strategy far into early September. The concert stages will be testament to the braids because all of that moving around needs management, and your hair shouldn’t be a wrestling match when you are moving to the sweet sound of summer music.


It’s the summer of braids and that’s the best news you’ll hear for hairstyle this year even though Solange Knowles tweeted out last year her struggle with her braid change. But change is good and most people agree that her shift to the long braid extension was spectacular. Need some inspiration for how to make it happen? Do a search for not only Beyonce, but also singer Chrisette Michele, actress Joy Bryant, and for the coup de grace of beautiful, the ever-stunning Brandy.
