Summer Hair DIY

Sometimes I feel like I spend Summer trying to figure how out to save my hair from the humidity.  Here's a style that pretty much kicks humidity's keester.

**First, separate the front part of your hair into one section and pin a piece of lace or ribbon right behind it.  Using the lace as one of your strands, braid the front of your hair and pin behind your ear.

 **Take the remaining ribbon and wrap it around your head, and then again half-way.  Stop at the back and tie it up.

**After the lace is secured, separate the remaining hair into 2 sections.  Using bobby pins (and pony tail holders, if needed), pin up into messy buns.  When you're done it should look something like this:


This style is so great for humid days, dirty hair days (wink, wink), or just any old day you feel like wearing your hair up.  If you give it a try, be sure to leave me a link in the comments.  I'd love to see!
xoxo Katie

  31. ughh, this is 2cute4words! I have recently been trying to go "no poo" (as in not using shampoo) and my bangs have been hit hard in the grease department. This would be perfect in this humid houston climate. This is my hair tomorrow.
