Summer is right around the corner, which means it's time to face this humidity and hit these beaches without the worry of maintaining these natural tresses. Like many black women, I happily dedicated a full Saturday at the salon for my install. This season, I went with waist length Senegalese twists. Although I absolutely adore my zero-maintenance look, I quickly grew tired of alternating between two styles. I needed some versatility in my life. This YouTube tutorial by Mariama Giovanna helped me to diversify my look to suit any occasion and gave me the basic skillset to try out different styles of my own. Let this tutorial bless your braids and baby hair summer! summer braids
