Ahh July 4th weekend: Backyard BBQs, pool parties, beach days… and bad hair because the heat and humidity will just not cooperate with your look. We can’t wait to have some fun in the sun this holiday weekend, but (don’t judge) we’re already sad about the gross, greasy-looking ponytail that will inevitably end up in every Facebook photo or Instagram of all this festive fun. (To be clear, it’s not cute in person either.)
That’s why we’re loving AnnaSophia Robb’s braided bangs with a twist. It’s the perfect no-fuss updo: You’ll get your hair off your neck but the easy braided bang is fun and fresh from the front.
Here’s how to steal this hairstyle: First, part your hair to one side. Section off the hair in the front (your actual growing-out bangs if you have ‘em, or what would be bangs if you don’t). Braid your “bangs” along the crown of your head, down to your ear, and then all the way to the end. Follow our how-to video if you need some help. Secure the braid with a clear elastic. For extra credit, take the front section on the other side of your part and twist that back. Now gather all of your hair, including the braid and twisted section and pull it back into your favorite bun or twist. Done! We promise the braid is super-fast once you get the hang of it, and you’ll be able to rock this way-cuter-than-a-pony style all summer long.
