Long Box Braids
We know it looks like an ode to the ’90s Poetic Justice days, but you can thank Solange, Cynthia Bailey, and Kandi Burress for bringing back this style. If you really want to kick up the Bohemian flair this summer, this is the style to do it. These waist-length braids, which can be made really large or skinny, are a great look to last you throughout most of the season since they don’t require much maintenance other than a touch up in the front if you’re not protecting your edges at night. Speaking of protection, make sure your real hair isn’t being pulled too tightly around the edges to prevent breakage. There are lots of ways you can wear this look — a high ponytail, half up and half down, a low bun — it all depends on how creative you want to get.
