In the summer (or any time, really), curly hair can be a real pain in the butt to deal with. Imagine this: it feels like it's 100 degrees out, humidity is practically at 100%, and you're wearing a wool scarf around your neck. You'll die of heat exhaustion! That's pretty much what it's like wearing your hair down when you have a lot of curly hair. Yet for some reason, whenever I wear my hair half-up, half-down, I feel so much more refreshed than when I wear all of my hair down. So weird, right?

The only problem is I hate how my hair looks half-up, half-down. It's very... secretarial, if you know what I mean. I'm a little bit obsessed with braids, so I decided to braid half of my hair and then roll it into a bun. And omg guys, wearing my hair like this was even MORE refreshing! Honestly, the next best thing would be to just wear my hair up. But sometimes I feel more feminine with my hair down, you know? Anyway, I think this hair look is super cool, and reminds me of a warrior princess. It's SUPER easy, so click through for the full tutorial!

  1. Brush out knots with the Cricket Ultra Smooth Comb. The really cool thing about this comb is that a blend of argan and olive oils (plus Keratin protein) are infused into the plastic of the comb to help reduce frizz. Pretty neat! Then, taking the Ouidad VitalCurl styling gel, work a small amount through your hair.
  2. Divide your hair into two sections. The top section is the one you will braid.
  3. Begin braiding your hair. I like to put a small amount of the Ouidad gel into my hands so that while I braid my hair, I'm also taming the crazy curls.
  4. Once you finish braiding, fluff out your braids a bit.
  5. Begin twisting your braid into a bun.
  6. Using one of your Phuse Tie & Band hair ties, secure your bun.
  7. Using the Cocovit Coconut Oil, smooth out any frizzies you may have.
And that's it! Seriously. It's my go-to hairdo when I'm on vacation or out running errands, because it makes me look a lot more put together than I actually am... Ha!

  13. You're making me miss my long hair. I recently cut it mid-back, but hey, at least hair grows back, right? I can probably still try this when I do my hair curly! I am going to give it a shot - thanks for the tutorial! <3

  14. So pretty! I recently changed my shampoo/conditioner and my hair has been so much more manageable. I'm happy letting it air dry now (with braids and product of course, but it turns out much more nicely) x
