1. Half Up, Half Down Space/"Mini" Bun
A space bun with longer hair just never worked out for me, so I was super excited to rock this style! All you have to do is put up half of your hair into a ponytail and then turn it into a bun (either at the top of your head or behind your head like in this picture)... I only have to secure my bun with one bobby pin, and it will stay in place all day! Keep the rest of your hair natural or style with a curler, etc.
2. Braided Bang
When I part my hair to the side (which I often do when I wear it natural), some pieces in the front are shorter layers. To keep them out of my eyes all day, I like to make a small braid and pin it behind my ear. If you are more talented than me in the hair department, a french braid would look even cuter!
3. Beach Waves
I am lucky enough to have naturally wavy hair, and beach waves are always a trendy look for the summer :) There are a bunch of products out there that can help you achieve this look (salt sprays, etc.), but you can also sleep in a bunch of mini braids for an effortless style the next morning!
