10 Human Hair Braided Hairstyles To Slay This Summer

For the perfect blend of hairlegance and summer glow, here are some human hair braided hairstyles you can rock this summer.

1. Box Braids

We know you expected box braids to top this chart, and you are right. Box braids are timeless hairstyles that help you slay effortlessly. Braid lovers usually have this hairstyle for about 3-6 weeks; it's a perfect protective style and can be styled in multiple ways.
With bulk human hair, your box braids look silkier and shinier. The best part? It's easier to take down with fewer tangles and gives your natural hair extra care because it's tender.

2. Knotless Braids

Coming up right behind box braids are Knotless braids. They are so chic and lightweight that they get extra love as the go-to back-to-school hairstyles. You can rock your knotless braids in various styles, as human hair can be curled or straightened.

3. Goddess Braids

You must try out the Goddess braid if you love your braids to have an extra definition with curls. It's a box braid highlighted by extra curly strands attached to it. You can rock this hairstyle as short, mid or long. A perfect way to complement that summer glam.

4. Bohemian Braids (Boho Braids)

Bohemian braids, popularly known as Boho Braids, are another beautiful human hair style you can rock this summer. The technique for Boho braids is: it’s braided for a few inches; then the curls are left undone and curled to achieve volume. Boho Braids usually have a more casual look because the curls are not uniform.
We recommend using human hair shades that complement your skin tone for that "wow" effect.

5. Half-Braids

Half-up Ghana braids have been around for a while, yet they are beautiful hairstyles you can rock with either wavy or curly human hair. Usually, your hair is braided until the mid-section, and then the human hair is allowed to flow for the rest of the hair, as seen in the picture. 
This is a perfect hairstyle because it can be let loose (as the model has done in the picture) or styled in a bun. You can use a blow-out kinky human hair to achieve this look flawlessly.
You can take it up a notch with beads or even a hint of color.

6. Braided Ponytail

Something is enchanting about ponytails; it gives you this simple yet sleek appearance. We recommend long-length ponytails; they look chic.

Unlike other braided hairstyles, the braided ponytail requires little to no styling; if you're tired of the length, all you have to do is put it in a bun, and you're good to go.

7. Cornrows

Beautiful timeless cornrows are a classy choice for this summer's braided hairstyles with human hair. Cornrows are easy to install and take down, not to mention they are great protective styles. You can wear your cornrows as micro or chunky braids. 

If you'd like to spice up your cornrows, you can use colored human hair, add beads or other hair accessories.

The Afro Updo braid is a beautiful Afro hairstyle with a twist. With this hairstyle, part of your hair is made into cornrows and the rest is left undone in afro. The Afro Updo is a versatile hairstyle, as it can be curly and short, like the picture or wavy and long with sleek sides, like the picture.

Before now, synthetic hair extensions were the go-to extensions to make these braids. They were pretty, of course, and still are, but now we level up the braiding game by infusing human hair into braid hairstyles.
