10 Gorgeous Braid Styles You Can Easily Do Yourself (PHOTOS)

braid bunBraids are great for summer hair. They're generally pretty easy to do, they look good when they're messy (see: a zillion celebrities), and they keep you cool as a pony tail, but a little more chicly. Here are 10 braid styles you can definitely do yourself -- I made sure to include looks for a variety of hair types and lengths too. Enjoy!

What's your favorite braid look?

Most of these don't properly credit the source. Can you include links? I know the last on was stolen from Refinery 29 but I'm curious about some of these and not all are sourced.

I dont see how I could do 8 of these without help, or long hair. Only 2 look feasible to me.


I love the way braids look but I know I probably couldn't do any of these.

These braids r almost impossible for someone who isent a perfosinal hair dresser to do.... And they take hours to do even when u know what u r doing.... Wish they wld come up with some that u can actually do..... In a reasonable amount of time. Women who have family's and can't sit in the mirror all day playing with there hair will never be able to do braids like these ones......
