In the throes of spring (and on the brink of summer if you’re in Texas), we look to the newest trends to breathe life back into our look as a way to wake up after our winter lull. Braids are always a great way to keep us fresh, and with so many options for every hair type, you can rest assured you can change up your look every season! Although these braids are fresh, braids have been around for centuries, and like all trends, there have been tweaks to make them feel even more current (I’m looking at you white kitchen appliances! [or any other recycled trend]) Here is a quote from Zendaya in 2016 that I’m not saying we should use, but something we should be sensitive around- “Braids are not new. Black women have been wearing braids for a very long time. Another problem is it became new and fresh and fun because it was on someone else other than a black woman. You know what I mean? So that is the frustration.”
For those with a bit of an adventurous streak, this braid sings summer love in an airstream, with a sweet pup, and a camera-ready look at every turn.
