#32: Elegant Side Braid Bun

This is yet another gorgeous and complex French braid hairstyle which works perfectly for long hair. Part your locks to one side and start braiding, from the crown of your head, gradually angling down and towards the nape of your neck. This will add a pleasant-looking curve to your braid. Once all your side strands are included into the braid, continue braiding the rest of the hair in a normal style – don’t forget to incorporate the hair on the left side, too. Twist this long braid, into a bun and secure it with pins. This elegant style is inspired by Eastern traditions and will look amazing with very sleek, long straight hair.
