BET was at it again with the blatant disrespect to Black Women and the culture. Take a look at what they tweeted about Dawn Richard, a black woman, having copied Ariana Grande’s Marley bubble ponytail.
Whew Chile….the ignorance.
I know how much pressure I put on myself to get summer ready. I drink plenty of water and then I make sure that my coins are looking right. Because I know most of my money, during the summer, goes to my hair and clothes—but mostly my hair.
As a black woman, we wear our hair to express ourselves. Rocking a hairstyle that we love gives us confidence. But how do we know what hairstyles looks best? Better yet, how do we know what hairstyles are summer appropriate? Well, the truth is braids are always the move.
I understand the pressure—the need to look your best. Why should you look dusty? Nope! We won’t let that happen. Here’s a small cheat sheet to help you decide which style will work best for you. Plus, you can do some of these yourself with the help of the tutorials listed below!
All you need is 20 minutes, gel, a brush, rubber bands and some kanekelon or Marley braiding hair. It’s super sleek, sexy and simple. Can’t go wrong with this one.

This style may take a little more time but nothing you can’t do on your own. This style will last all summer long and it’s a great protective style.
Micro Braids have been seen all over the SS19 catwalks and pretty much a black woman staple hairdo forever. If you want to stay on trend then this is move. You can make them as small or big as you want. This one, I’d definitely recommend having done by a professional.
Fulani braids have been around for centuries and aren’t going anywhere. With one of the sexiest braiding styles ever known to man, you definitely will be turning heads this Springbreak and Summer with these.
Our homegirl, Shrimp, DID…THAT!
I really hope this helps!
