How to Do This Cool Bun/Braid Thing

The following is a guest post from our friends at The Beauty Department.

It's H-O-T outside, and walking around all day can really make you want to get that hair up and off your back. For us, it's great inspiration—we've made up all kinds of impromptu cute hairstyles to deal with the heat, like this one. If you know how to French braid, it's actually pretty easy. You'll need some pomade, a curling iron (unless your hair's already wavy) and five minutes, but afterwards, you'll be thrilled you put the effort in. It's way prettier than a bun and more surprising than a simple braid, because it's sort of both styles in one.
