All in favor of low-maintenance beach babe hairstyles year round, raise your hand.
We're no stranger to undone waves, but sometimes, we want to mix it up with a braided updo—and what better place to find inspiration than at Miami Swim Week? Lucky for us, E! Style Contributor contestant Deepica Mutyala was on the ground at the influencer party where she chatted with Tresemmé stylist John D about what exactly he uses to keep the style fresh—especially in the heat.
You've very likely been sporting basic to advanced level braids for years, so we don't have to tell you that there are endless ways to make them new.
According to the celeb stylist, braids aren't going anywhere any time soon—you just need to style them according to the weather. His biggest tip for keeping your It Girl style fresh in warm weather: Make sure to keep strands hydrated.
No matter what braid you're styling (from crown braids to fishtails to mixed braids), the trick to keeping strands shiny and flyaways at bay is to protect with a hydrator, like Tresemmé's Botanique Damage Recovery Elixr Oil, before styling.
