Pro tip: You don’t have to learn a whole new complicated style to make your summer braids feel fresh and cool. Just add a little sparkle with the help of a long, beaded necklace. Here’s how to incorporate one into a standard French braid.

Step 1: Take a section of hair at the crown of your head and pin it up temporarily. Next, use bobby pins to attach a necklace just below the clipped piece.

Step 2: Let down the section of hair and get to work on that French braid. Tie the end off with a hair elastic and revel in your subtle sparkle.
