So I just got asked to me a bridesmaid! I’m excited as I’ve never gotten to be in a wedding party before. Since I’ll be in a lineup of other cute gals in the same dress I want to find an easy way to still feel like myself. I figured the easiest option besides nail polish or jewelry would be my hair!  Obviously I want to look polished, but not overly done so I decided on a great half up do involving two braids. It’ll be great for the keeping my hair out of my face yet still looking prim without rocking a stereotypical helmet hair updo. The other thing I love about this braid is that it is totally a style I can rock all summer. Think this look will be right for your next event?

Photos: For the summer, what could be more fun that a splash of bright color? Coloring your fringe is a great way to get a big “bang” out of a small amount of color. Place a few foils on the interior layers, or hand paint the top surface to place the color across the round of the head where light naturally hits, for a reflective effective that makes hair look thicker and shinier.
