This summer I'm nixing the messy hair clip look and instead wearing super simple braids. The great thing about braids is that they look like you put a great deal of effort into them but the truth is that they're just as easy throwing your hair in a ponytail. You're supposed to start with clean dry hair but when I'm running late in the morning and don't have time to wash or dry I rely on the braid. I usually do the dual side braids but I've ben experimenting a bit more recently.
This one is a simple side braid that I pinned to the top of my head with bobby pins.
Heidi braids are another easy go-to style when I'm running late in the morning and I'll be trying out this crown braid soon!
