You guys! Labor Day is almost upon us, which means you will hopefully be spending summer’s remaining weekends basking in the sunshine (slathered in SPF, of course), looking every bit the summer goddess you are. To help get you ready, we enlisted hairstylist Paul Warren (you might remember him from this) to show us three easy, pretty looks that are perfect for natural or braided hair, and we tapped three totally badass women to model them.

Click through to read all about Sunita, Sira, and Kennedy—how they care for their hair, and how it reflects their personal style—and how to recreate these looks at home. We swear, they’re as easy as it gets and require zero heat tools.
