Whether you call it the dutch, pineapple or reverse French braid, this simple style is a quick ‘do to whip up this season. “With the weather heating up, the braids will keep you cool and cute at the same time,” says Gibson. To create the look, part your hair in three sections and start crossing each section under the another until you reach your desired length for the braid. Secure with a hair tie and viola. Gibson recommends using a gloss (or mousse) to tame frizz and smooth flyaways for a sleeker style.
