7 summer braid hairstyles to inspire your clients

What comes with Summer? Braids. So, as summer will soon be coming to an end (boo), HJ have compiled together a round-up of our favourite summer braid hairstyles to help inspire your clients to make the most out of those summer styles before they move on to Autumn things.

The classic plait

Whether clients are into braids or not, this is a look that will quite possibly never go out of style. The ultimate simple yet classic and effortless look for clients. Even Kim Kardashian opted for the casual summer braids. Speaking of Kim, did you see her hair transformation for the Met Gala? https://www.instagram.com/p/Cacu1ioJcuB/

Baby braids

Baby braids have taken over summer as one of the biggest hair trends this year, with the likes of Hailey Bieber, Kendall Jenner and even J Lo opting for the look. The micro plaits, either side of a centre parting, paired with loose locks or an updo, is the perfect summer style for clients to show off. https://www.instagram.com/p/Cf10BcQJMNU/

The loose plait

Hailey Bieber certainly turned heads at this year's Grammy Awards with this clean, effortlessly chic and understated loose low plait – the perfect look for clients looking for a less-polished and subtle hairstyle.

The sleek braided ponytail

The sleek braided ponytail gives nothing less than boss vibes – a vibe we're all obsessed with this year. This chic, pulled-together look is perfect for your most daring clients who want to stand out from the crowd. https://www.instagram.com/p/ChAQdwjs38h/

Bubble braids

Sporting the bubble braid look for her 26th birthday, Gigi Hadid took us all back to the year 2000. This cool trend is a simple way for clients to switch up a simple ponytail or plaits for a whole new look. https://www.instagram.com/p/COIWYi-HzgD/

Pigtail plaits

The pigtail plaits may take clients right back to their primary school days, but we're here for it, as is Kendall Jenner as she showcased this adorable hairstyle at this year's Coachella. The ultimate look for clients who want to be cute and practical. https://www.instagram.com/p/Ccgr0mIPF_h/

Box braids

Zendaya's beautiful box braids stirred up quite the storm back in September 2020. And with over 6.8m posts for box braids on Instagram last year, we're still loving this look for summer 2022. https://www.instagram.com/p/CE2s0w9Azux/ Whether your clients are into dancing until dawn at festivals, soaking up the sun on holiday, or picnicking in the park, these summer braid hairstyles are sure to get heads turning. Or should we say twisting? Looking for more inspiration? Why not check out these quick and easy summer updos.
