I love that summer is always a great time to experiment with new hairstyles and makeup trends. I also love to wear my hair in a side braid or plop a huge bun on top of my head too. My hair is getting longer (contemplating ANOTHER Locks of Love donation) so I find that I love to style it in different ways. For my fellow longer haired gals, I've rounded up some great images below for you to try. I'll give a small snippet below of either why I love it or how I think the look can be emulated. One thing's certain, try something new this summer...even if it's a sparkly headband or colored bobby pins, stretch those hairstyle horizons, pretty ladies! Enjoy!

"I'm totally trying this today! I love how two front sections are bobby pinned back and under for face framing sweetness! When I lived in Australia, Miss Delta Goodrem was all the rage so it was actually nice to stumble upon this great pic of her with a perfect summer 'do!"
"I mean seriously...can Kruger ever do wrong? Nah! Her adorable and messy, double sided french braid is something that would be very impressive if done on your own. This might be a look that's better to try when with a friend that has supreme braiding skills. I love this look, though!"
"Don't even try to forget about an easy, sexy and messy pony! We love the soft pieces that fall in front and Miss Biel's golden jewelry brings out her auburn highlights. This is a great look for day or night!"
"Taking a cue from Rachel Zoe...I DIE!!! This is about the length of my hair so I'm pumped to try this look. I remember rocking something similar in my early childhood but this messy, sexy and easy version is right up my alley!"
"Again, if you can accomplish this 'do without an extra set of hands, I tip my hat and tell you that you have a future in hair styling, ha! Love this loose, side french braid with soft strands floating out too!"
"I'm quite certain everyone, and their Moms, have tried this fantastic look! You can either do a loose braid and pull it back with a messy bun (like Nicole Richie above) or you can french braid a front section and tuck it into your messy bun (like Jessica Alba). We love this grecian-esque look for day or night!"
PS - Are you totally lost with trying out a side part braid like above? No worries! We've got this great Youtube video tutorial for you to check out:
