Short Hair Braids for Summer

7U6A2505Hey babes. Short post to share some short hair braids I did recently. In a time of short-bob boredom, it hit me that I still had braiding options so I busted out some half-up style french braids that actually looked pretty cute. I plan to do some more polished short hair tutorials soon, but for now, peep these. 7U6A2468

This first hairstyle I stole from my Barista at Zoka Coffee in Tangletown. She rocks the short bob and braid and it looks so cute on her. To get this look, I began a french braid at the front hairline in my bangs, which were BARELY long enough to even consider cooperating. I began adding small sections from either side, back and forth.

When I got half way back, I gathered the ends of my french braid into a tiny messy little bun, by ponytail-ing it once, and pulling it halfway through the second time. Kinda cute, right? And super easy to do.

Then, I flipped the tail of the braid underneath the french braid, tucking it under and out of the way. I used a bobby pin and a strategically placed dogwood flower to secure the braid to the head.7U6A2695
