Even though it still might not feel like it outside, it is officially spring. And while the brutal winter weather wreaked havoc on just about everything in our lives (shoes, clothes, skin, moods, etc), it definitely had one of the worst effects on our hair. I don’t know about you, but my hair has been in a perpetual messy bun since about December.
Well, now that warm weather is actually on the horizon, it’s time to break out the spring shoes, clothes, and most importantly–hairstyles! We’ve all been stuck in the drab ponytail/messy bun/barely brushed hair rut, and it’s time for a change. Spring braids are all the rage this season, and we’re here to give you some easy & cute styles that will go perfectly with the warmer spring weather. These styles will make it look like you put tons of effort into your ‘do, but spoiler alert: they’re not as complicated as they look! So scroll through, pick out your favorite style, and remember what it’s like to actually put some effort into your hairstyle!
