hottest afro braids

Summer is all about sea and beaches and hot weather and hair easily gets damaged by sun and salty seawater and hot winds. I am looking for some way to get an easy and stylish hairdo that won’t have me wasting loads of time with blowdryer, flatirons and hairpins. I did my research and found the perfect answer for me – braided hairstyle. So here are some cutest afro braids to try this summer


shaved hairstyles for women

Since 2009 many celebrities have shaved their heads – full head or the side part (which is more appropriately called undercut). I think the closely buzzed hair looks good on girls with very fine and feminine features, highlighting their natural beauty.

It is also gorgeous to have your hair buzzed to form some design, the so called hair tattoo

And then we have this strange haircut, in which the hair is buzzed short or completely shaved on one side, whereas the other side remains long, the half and half haircut, or undercut, as it is called sometimes. The pioneer of the style is Alice Dellal, British model and celebrity.

I suppose this short haircut is hot and very feminine. Do you?

Japanese hairstyles

Japanese hairstyles will vary from exotic very plain and cute. The main feature in most Japanese hairstyles is the parting of the front bangs.

Many Japanese hairstyles focus on bangs or having hair slightly covering a small portion of the face. Whether the hair is layered, slickened, or straight down, having the hair slightly covering the face adds a mysterious look as well. A prime example of these types of Japanese hair styles can be found in two of Japan’s most popular stars.
