Right before my birthday vacation, I wanted to challenge myself to experiment with my hair so I had waist-length braids done. My go-to protective style hairdresser – Jane Stylist – convinced me to take my experimentation a notch higher with the so-hot-right-now triangle braids and as per usual, I loved the result! We used about 8 packs of Elegant Braid by Darling, in the colour 1/350. I love that it feels light and I’ve been enjoying the hair so much, I had to share some simple tips on how to style long braids during the sunny weather πŸ˜‰

Wrap-A-Round High Bun.Β 

There’s something so easy and sophisticated about a high bun, so it’s no surprise that this style made it to my list! A tip to avoid having a huge bun that is a tad too heavy when it comes to styling long braids would be to hold up half the hair in a wrap-a-round bun and have the rest of the braids down to the side.
