55 Different Braided Hairstyles and Twists You Should Try Now

Finally summer is here, and there is more humidity in the air that means frizzy hair. No doubt, braids and twists are the only way to fight frizz so these are known as hairstyles for summer. Braids are good for a number of reasons and the main reason being their intricacy. They appear to be very sophisticated and much more complex than they actually are.

No one likes to use straighteners and blow dryers in summer season because it is like wasting your time in styling your hair and as soon as you go out, your hairdo is totally ruined due to humidity. Most women hate braids as they find them difficult and time consuming but believe me not all braids are that complex. Some of them are totally doable and so simple that even a novice can do them easily.
