Was it Bo Derek who inspired us to wear braids in the sweltering heat with her beaded corn rows? The everlasting and ongoing love affair with braids began long ago for the lady type. If you haven’t got a short pixie cut or an easy bob, other than a bun, what better option do you have to keep your hair polished and out of your way. There are a number of different braid styles we have seen over the years, but I thought I would create one as an ode to my love of summer. I present the heart-shaped braid.
