Getting a trendy hairstyle when you have longer hair should not be a chore during the holiday season. On July 4, when the summer is so hot, you want trendy and cool styles. Trust me; you can have this. I have hair that is considered mid-length as it hangs halfway down my back.
If your hair is super long, two braids look great together hanging separately down your back. Part your hair, braid each hair separately, and use only non-metal elastic holders to keep hair neat and tidy. If you want to you can use red, white, or blue ribbons or elastic holders to complete your Fourth of July hairstyle.
The beautiful French braid can incorporate the Fourth of July theme as well, simply weave in red, white or blue ribbon in the hair as it is braided. If you have beads, you can slide them on the end of the braid just keep the color theme in mind as you create your one of a kind hairstyle.
Keep your head cool by braiding the hair when it is wet, or spray it down once the braids are in place. Keeping your hair damp or wet, not only keeps it in place it also helps keep you cooler in the hot Fourth of July activities.
