Easy Steps To Side Braid Hair
Whether you have straight hair or layered hair or any other type of hair, side braiding can be done on it. Don’t think that since you have layered hair some strands will come out and spoil your braid. Leave the layers that end near your chin, and braid your hair with rest of the hair that are falling on your shoulder or back and get a fabulous look.
You can create your own unique style by parting your hair from middle or opt for side partition. You can either clip your hair on the crown from one side and letting the rest of the hair loose or simply leave few strands for getting a carefree look. Get all your hair to the side where you want the braid to be. Now divide the hair in three equal parts and braid it to your desired length. Finally, secure it with an elastic band.
