You may be surprised by how one of the more current braids could transform your outfit and have you looking fabulous on your vacation. A little hair spray and leave-in conditioner can help to avoid flyaways and make it easier to attain a slick and polished finished look. If you are in the sun with your new hairdo, remember to sunscreen your scalp where your hair is parted.


2. Natural

You may learn to love your natural hair after spending a little time making it come to life.

There is no one saying you have to stop at one bun. Space buns are unbelievably cute and fun. Not to mention, they are just your simple messy bun times two.
