When it comes to softball, the braid will never go out of style. There are so many options when it comes to braids: french, dutch, you name it. A classic is the single french braid. It always looks great! Add a visor for the perfect finishing touch.

Mini Braids
Yet another variation of the braid. Mini braids are fun and look so cool! You can go so many directions with mini braids: into a ponytail, into bubble braids, or all the way down!
