STYLE GALS: How to Create Perfect Summer Braided Hair!By Delaina Dixon | July 17, 2012 | Entertainment, Lifestyle
When the weather gets warm your entire beauty routine changes, including your hair.
Summertime is the perfect time to lighten up a bit! One great idea is braided extensions. You can get a new lighter style by adding colored human hair. One nice combination is Sensationnel’s Wet and Wavy 100 percent human hair in colors 2 and 30. Braid the back of your hair with 2 and then mix 2 and 30 up front for an ombre effect.
Once the braids are in, you’ll want to do a little shaping. To make it look fantastic, we turned to celebrity stylist Mika Fowler — she does Olivia Munn‘s do ΓÇô- for a hairline trim.
“It’s so the hair moves,” the Beverly Hills-based stylist shared inside NYC’s city Eiji Salon. Known for her dry cuts, Mika says that “just a little trim can create some movement” in the hair. And why shouldn’t your braids have a little swing?
