One of the biggest trends seen in lookbooks and on social media for s/s16 is braids. Braids are so practical for spring/summer because it keeps your hair out of your face and stops you from getting sweaty whilst looking cute (also an excellent clubbing hairstyle). Plus, they often look way more complicated than they are so everyone will be impressed! There are many different ways one can wear a braid and they can be varying in sizes and amounts. Hopefully this article will demonstrate this to you and give you some ideas for the coming warmer months.
