#28: Simple Side Braid

This simple braid style will work with just about any shape of face and hair type – but it looks particularly flattering on women with oblong or oval faces and wavy hair. The other great part about this style is that it keeps hair off your forehead and, to boot, it can go a long way to add volume to otherwise flat-looking hair. If you don’t know exactly how to French braid, but want to experiment, this style is a good place to begin. Simply start by braiding three strands of hair at the top, by your side parting. Work your way down and keep incorporating strands of hair into the braid. At the end don’t forget to secure the whole thing with an elastic and hide it, wrapping by a thin strand tightly.
