Making the braid
"Just like a classic pair of blue jeans, braids will always be in style,” says hair stylist Brennen Demelo, owner of Brennen Demelo Studio in Toronto. They are a great way to look polished in the summer, while keeping your hair off your neck.

Bonus: if you choose to wear a braid, your hair will set into a wavy kink. “This leaves your second-day hair with that popular beachy texture — without any of the work!”

Here are some simple ways to switch up the classic three-strand braid.
