When you have long curly hair it can be rather frustrating when you are trying to find something new to do with your hairstyle. Dragged side braids are a great and easy way to change your look and style in just a matter of minutes.
With this style, you actually braid the sides of your hair and allow the back to flow in a cascade of curls. To begin, the first step is to part your hair down the middle and set aside a section on the side. Take that section and divide into 3.
You will then want to bring the sections towards your face and then braid as usual. This is the base of the dragged down braid. Once the braid is completed, secure with a band and then tuck it behind your ear. You will then want to do the same procedure with the other side.
As you can see, this braid is quite simple and should only take you a few short minutes to complete. This will not only give you a quick new hair style but you have just found a way to keep the hair out of your face.
There is no difficulty in learning how to do this braid. You can teach this to your daughter so she can have a new look for school or even if she is going to the mall with her friends. In the warmer months, this style can really come in handy. Since you are keeping your hair out of your face, you will not feel as bothered by it in the long run.
If you do not know how to do the basic braid it is quite easy. Simply take the right strand and cross over the middle strand and then the left strand over the middle strand. Repeat this process till the braid is complete to the ends.
This is one of the easiest styles that you can learn. It is always good to know several different styles so you have some variety and add a little spice to your hairstyling life.
