Ever since I've grown my hair long again, one hairstyle I've been loving to wear especially on a hot day is braided. Braided hair isn't really damaging as long as you handle your strands lightly. A couple of months ago, I shared that I wanted a permed hair. I grabbed the inspiration for a permed hair when I saw the results after untangling my braided hair once, it was so nice.  It made me look different, like far different from having a straight hair.

Going back to perming. After having my hair assessed by 3 salons, I found out that with the length I have, it will most likely cost me 6K-9K with digital perming. The price alone, made me hold the decision to have my hair permed and will just go braided.

Last night, I went through braiding tutorials on Youtube. I got the tip from my sister Les who's very good at braiding and doing her own hairstyle.
1. Waterfall Braid

This waterfall braid I followed was from the bangs area. The result was really nice. It was very neat to look at, chic and it can be worn to formal events.
2. Fishtail Braid
I like the Fishtail Braid because it's really extraordinary to look at. I often see celebrities wear this kind of braid. The Fishtail like any other braid, can fit both casual and formal occasions. The results in my photo above didn't get the exact look from the tutorial, thicker bundles of hair were used. But I saw the difference from a regular braid. I love it!

With several other options to consider to get a different look on an ordinary day and aside from spending $200 just for a hair treatment, I look at braiding as a great choice for all seasons.  Summer is here, it's perfect to make us ladies look fresh.
