2017 Summer (hair) style staple

Can you believe this heat? Is it even officially summer yet? Lately I've been wearing my hair up and out of the way, not only in an effort to stay cool, but for a different, more stylish look.

I am all about convenience when it comes to everyday style, which is why I am get plenty of wear out of this messy loc bun. It literally takes five minutes to do and I am out the door and off to start the day!

I first flip all my locs forward and hold them in place with an elastic band. These bands are pretty popular, find them at a local beauty supply store, Target, Walmart or online if all else fails.

Next, I loop the elastic band around a second time and swing my longer locs to one side to hold the bun in place, making certain my duck face is also on point, haha!

I'll take some time and adjust as needed, so that all locs are neatly secured. This usually takes a minute or two to do. My locs have quite the personality and don't really appreciate being contained. (there, there my little babies, haha)

And viola! Check out the finished look. The thicker, black headband pictured here is optional.

This loc bun is also perfect for a special occasion or upscale event. I'd most likely add a jeweled headband or decorative scarf for a sleeker look.

How're you wearing your hair for the summer?
