The summer brings with it all kinds of activities, from weddings and beach trips to outdoor potlucks. In order to avoid wearing my hair the same exact way all season (in a messy bun on top of my head), I've compiled three easy hair styles that can be created in under five minutes.
The braided rose is a simple half-up style with two little braids that are then twisted together in the back of your head. It's one of those styles that looks a lot more complicated than it really is and would be ideal for a summertime wedding and is great paired with beachy waves.
Step 2: Bobby pin the braid end to the back, middle of your head. I used two bobby pins crossing over each other to make sure it stays very secure. At this point also give your hair a bit of volume at the top by slightly pressing upward when pinning.
Step 4: Repeat step 2, securing the second braid with bobby pins on top of the first braids' pins.
Step 6: Wrap it around in a circular pattern on top of the bobby pins. Keep the entire "rose" look flat instead of creating a bun. Then take one bobby pin and secure the rose shape on top of the other bobby pins.
Step 2: Separate the pony tail in two pieces.
Step 4: Pull the two knotted sides up to the top of the bun and cross them over one another, covering the pony hail holder.
Step 2: Gather the hair from the parted side and bring it over to the other side of your head.
Step 4: Pull out a few strands of hair to help frame your face.
Step 6: Take about a one-inch piece of hair in the pony tail and wrap it around the elastic.
