This is the ultimate way to take your summer braids to the next level! You’re sure to become a stopper, head turner, boss babe extraordinaire!
What you’ll need:
- Synthetic hair – any color you’d like! You can even mix and match! 1 pack is enough for 2 summer braids.
- Clear elastics
Step 1: Split the hair from the package into 2 equal parts and count out 4 elastics – you will use 2 for each braid.
Step 2: Part hair down the middle into two equal sections – clip one side out of the way while you begin your first braid.
Step 3: Use one elastic to create a small pony at the top of your first section of hair.
Step 4: Create a loop in the pony and run the synthetic hair through so you have two equal portions – tighten the elastic to secure the synthetic hair.
Step 5: Divide the synthetic hair into 3 equal sections.
Step 6: Begin your French braid incorporating small sections of natural hair into each synthetic hair section.
Step 7: Secure the end of the braid with another clear elastic.
Step 8: Repeat with the other section!
Viola! Now match your fun summer braids with your favorite plum tutu!

About the Creator!
I’m Sammy, originally from San Francisco, now residing in sunny Southern California raising my tribe full time. I traded in my leather pants and rooftop martinis for tutus and sippy cups and I’ve never looked back! I am a mommy to 4 little blossoms; Daisy (9), identical twins Fox & Birdy (5) and cool dude Roar (3). To say there’s never a dull moment would be an understatement. I’ve always had a knack for crafting, so having my mini crew to create with makes it that much better! We are always finding new projects to perfect, crafts to create, and never passing up a good dance party! @sammy_poff
