The Side Braid
Braids are always in, but the type of braid that is in fashion changes from season to season. Last year we saw a huge popularity of milkmaid braid, this year the focus is on the big, bold and beautiful side braid. Ever since Alexander Wang featured them in his Spring 10 collection- side braids have been seen in plenty of fashion editorials, sported by celebrities and every fashion forward blogger. The good thing about it, is that it is very easy to achieve. If you have layered hair you will need a few pins to keep some of the loose strands of hair in place and a bit of hair spray. You might also want to add a few pieces of clip in hair extensions for extra volume that this braid requires. The key is to make it look a bit messy, so don’t worry if you have a few strands falling out of the braid.
The side braid is perfect for those bad hair days and only takes a couple of minutes to do. It’s an opportunity to skip on the basic and boring ponytail.
