From the article : In praise of side braid hairstyles: why you should try one
If you have a night out coming up and you're not sure what to do with your hair, a messy side braid is a great option. It's a versatile look that anyone with medium and long hair can wear, and it's a really pretty look.
Plenty of options
The great thing about any braided look is that there are several different techniques you can use to create it. From a rope twist to a fishtail to a classic three strand method, you won't be short on choices.
Don't worry if braiding seems a little complicated (or impossible!) sometimes because practice really does make perfect! After a while, you'll be able to do it without even thinking about it, promise.
Your hair, your way
Each and every braid technique can be used with different textures, so you can keep your locks natural or try a different look, it's totally up to you. You can create a windswept look by scrunching some salt spray through your hair before you start braiding or you can use a straightening cream to get a sleek, straight finish instead.
As if side braids weren't awesome enough already, they also look great with accessories! From barrettes to floral crowns to headbands, a braid is the perfect canvas/picture frame for your favorite embellishment.
FYI - Now that winter is almost here, it's also worth pointing out that a side braid sits very comfortably under even the most snuggly of hats!
