If you have long hair, learning how to braid will give you the opportunity to try out many different styles. Braids can be either plain or fancy, appropriate for every day, or special occasions. A side braid is a simple way to braid your hair, but the result is a romantic, old-fashioned look.
1. Brush the hair with a natural bristle brush and comb it to be sure tiny snarls and tangles have been removed.
2. Pull the hair over to one side, brushing it to be sure it's smooth.
3. Divide the hair into three equal sections, starting under the ear. Braid the hair and attach a small hair band to the end. Smooth on some mousse or styling gel to control wisps, if necessary.
4. Spritz the hair with hair spray to keep the side braid neat and any loose hairs under control.
