To start, part you hair way on the side to create that long side swept fringe look that adds softness to the facial features. If you already have bangs, keep your hair parted as usual and work your way from there.
Start from one side of the head and part a thick hair strand into three to start braiding. As you go towards the back in a slightly descending pattern, grab parts of your hair and incorporate them into the braid. This technique is called French braiding and will require a little bit of practice before you’ll be able to style your hair flawlessly and without “breaking a sweat”.
Once you reached the other side of the head, don’t work your way back up, but braid your hair simply to create a braided side swept ponytail. Secure the end of the pony with a hair elastic and start pulling the braids apart gently to create a looser effect. Using a few bobby pins hide the loose part under the hair by tucking it in and you’re all done. This look is perfect for various occasions and will definitely make you stand out from the crowd without making you look eccentric. Practice your braiding skill and you’ll be able to create amazing braided hairstyles that will make you a hair style diva among your friends.
