You likely won't be able to have your hair and makeup professionally done for every event related to your wedding (not all of us are Kardashians), but that doesn't mean that you still can't look your best. For a more low-key but still important celebration (maybe the first time both your parents meet or even your engagement party) consider giving yourself a fool-proof braided 'do that will stand up to this summer's heat and humidity without a problem. Daily Candy sought out Jamie Cook of Whittemore House in New York for some instructions on how to create a "round the world braid." Check it out here, plus see more of Daily Candy's ultra-helpful videos on hairstyles and more (the one about how to pose for a picture is pretty genius). —Cari Wolfert
