The classic ponytail is one of the most popular braid hairstyles. No wonder - it's quick to make and perfect for everyday use. But the same hairstyle every day just gets boring in the long run. We have three very special pigtail hairstyles for you that are absolutely trendy this summer.
No question about it - a braid is an absolute all-rounder. When we have a bad hair day, a classic ponytail saves every hairstyle drama, when in everyday life the hair is just annoying and is constantly in the way, the wild mane is simply tied back in seconds with an elastic band - we always have hair ties to hand anyway - and if we want to spray a dose of glamor in the evening, then an elegant sleek ponytail is a perfect choice. Braids can simply be both - practical and stylish.
That's why no hairstyle is as suitable for summer as the braid. On hot days, the elastic keeps our hair out of our faces and ensures that we don't sweat so much under a thick mat of hair. But braids are not only suitable for long hair in summer. A bob hairstyle can also be put together in a small braid, which is not only super cute but will also save you a lot of time. Who wants to straighten, curl and style their hair every day on hot days when, thanks to the frizz, it ends up standing on end again due to the summer humidity? We can definitely spend the time better.
Plus, it doesn't always have to be a classic ponytail. With an elastic band, completely different braids can be created quickly and easily. This summer is definitely time to add a little more variety to the daily ponytail parade. Be it with exciting hair accessories or creative modifications of the popular pigtail hairstyle.
We have three simple and summery braid hairstyles for you that take up little time, defy the heat, and are anything but boring!
Almost every trend has been there before - including the mini braids that frame our faces this summer. Whether braided or twisted into a cord - the small braids are reminiscent of 90s grunge looks and hippie hairstyles from the 70s. For a relaxed boho look, just twist your hair a little looser than for the retro 90's styling. Light waves and an airy boho maxi dress complete the summer look.
In addition to the cool look, the braids are also super practical. Since you twist or braid two strands of the front section of your hair, your hair won't hang annoyingly on your face or even stick to it when you sweat - and you don't even have to do without open hair.
For the summer pigtail hairstyle, it is best to use elastic mini hair ties in your own hair color for subtle and natural styling, or you can rely on contrasts.
Instead of braiding or tying the strands, you can simply work hair ties into the mini braid at regular intervals. Pull the individual sections of hair apart from a little between the elastic bands - this is how the stylish summer look of supermodel Gigi Hadid is created.
You wear your hair short and love to try out new bob hairstyles, but in summer the constant styling annoys you and the heat is also bothering you and your hair? Then let some fresh air on your neck and tie a cute little braid. A stylish pigtail hairstyle is also possible with an elongated, hacked, or little bob.
This summer you can quickly and easily tie your short hair in its natural structure into a braid and upgrade it with stylish hair accessories. Whether scrunchies made of velvet or organza and bows in all possible colors and patterns - the cute and extravagant ponytails turn a simple ponytail into a real eye-catcher.
Have you ever tried tying a scarf in your hair? They are also perfect for covering a boring hair tie or can be braided into a braid. A simple move that ensures an absolute wow factor.
Actress Margot Robbie appeared at this year's Academy Awards with an Oscar-worthy pigtail. But can a hairstyle for the red carpet also work in everyday life? Absolutely! Because the deep structured ponytail created by celebrity hairstylist Bryce Scarlett literally screams: Bronzed Beach Goddess.
You can conjure up the casual beach waves that we get all by ourselves in summer from the salty sea air with the help of some sea salt spray, even without the sea. This gives the mane more structure and the braid that you tie deep at the nape of the neck becomes more voluminous. Be careful not to pull the hair back too strictly. Your hair lies loosely in a braid over your ears.
Strands can play around your face loosely, especially if you wear the trendy curtain bangs. The mermaid braid hairstyle thrives on its relaxed calmness. For even more volume and casualness, you can easily pull the hair on the back of the head out of the braid. The perfect summer look is ready!
