Braids always become most popular during the summer, not only because they keep your hair out of your face easily but because they can last for days and are great for festivals.
But with the popularity of the ice queen Elsa, her sister Anna and the evolving types of braid (theres so much more than the french braid people...) it's more than a good idea to start practicing them for this A/W too.
Some of the braids I've seen are crazy difficult and take lots of practice and arm strength (seriously, having your hands above your head so much is tiring) but others look difficult but are perfect for when you are running late. Equally, sometimes doing your braid before you sleep makes it look more natural for the next day, you can just smooth it over with hairspray and a little comb.
