Braided Summer Hair Tutorial

This gorgeous Labor Day hairstyle is super easy to achieve and requires just three things: The Ostia Collection Flexible Hold Hairspray, a Tony Odisho Curling Iron, and a cute bandana. Better still, it can be styled two different ways for two adorable BBQ ready looks! Read through for the full step-by-step braided hair tutorial for warm weather.

Step 1 – Prep the Hair

Spray some Flexible Hold Hairspray on dry hair before beginning to style it. This will give hair a workable hold while protecting it against heat.

Step 2 – Curl It

Add some loose curls using the Tony Odisho Infrared Curling Iron. This will give the hair some extra volume and texture.

Step 3 – Rake Through

Using your fingers or a wide tooth comb, rake through the curls to break them up and make them more piecey.

Step 4 – Tease It

If you still feel like it could use some more volume, tease the hair on the crown with a rat tail comb.

Step 5 – Braid It

Starting with two small pieces of hair on the crown, begin to create a fishtail braid. All you have to do is keep the pieces small, and gather one piece from each side of the head crossing them over one another and making your way down to the nape of the neck. Hold in place with rubber band.

Step 6 – Pull Out Some Pieces

Use the end of a rat tail comb, pull some small, face-framing pieces out of the braid.

Step 7 – Accessorize!

You can accessorize this braided low pony with a cute, patriotic red bandana (or bandana of your choice) in two different ways.
