You got it, the braid trend is back once again this summer.

We totally understand if you want to run and hide knowing that you’re the only one of your group of pals who can french or dutch braid, you’ll be the designated hairstylist for the summer (if not all year round). Unfortunately for you if you are that person, braiding our hair is the chicest, most practical way to keep our hair out of our faces during the warm weather. If you’re wanting to mix up the braid game, take a look at our celebrity inspiration below.
