As the mercury rises, we're ditching our sew-ins and afro puffs for gorgeous braided styles -- aka the best low maintenance styles for the summer.
Let's face it, humidity doesn't do us any favors -- even naturalistas. So we're always on the lookout for good protective 'dos that are both stylish and easy to maintain. So, when Michelle Williams debuted this braided look via Instagam we definitely took notice.
Styled by master braider, Erica G, the design alternates between jumbo and micro cornrows that fall all the way to her waist. And don't worry about fly-aways and single strand knots, this look is perfect for those hot and humid days you'll be enjoying in New Orleans this summer at Essence Festival 2016. Wink wink!
