We love the look of a simple and classic loose braid on the side. A regular 3 strand braid of course is always great. But, this pass-through, 3 strand box braid, or "3D" braid may be something new and fun to try.
At first glance, this braid doesn't look a whole lot different than a regular braid. But if you look closely, you might notice that this braid is 3 dimensional.
As you can see from the side view, the side of this braid looks the same as the front! That is what I mean by "3-D." All 4 sides of the braid look basically the same, forming a square shaped 4 sided braid.
This cute summer hairstyle is quick and fairly easy to complete. Here's the video tutorial showing how to form the braid:
Of course, to go with our fun summer hairstyle we also need a cute summer dress! I absolutely love this darling sleeveless sun dress on our Princess. And as a side note, the Princess has very fair skin, so it's a must around here to use sunscreen in the summer. Shabby Apple has been a favorite place to shop for our dresses for awhile now. I adore the vintage look and fell in love with their stuff the moment I laid eyes on their website. If I could afford it (and if we had room in our closets) I would most likely own every dress they make for both myself and the Princess! :)
