French braid hairstyles are timeless classics and they’re picture perfect for so many occasions.

#40: Braided Side Bun Hairstyle

This is yet another style that’s perfect for barbeques or informal occasions as well as work or corporate meetings. As it always happens with French braids, you will begin by creating a deep parting. Braid right at the top and keep incorporating strands of hair from your hairline, as you are working your way down. Secure everything at the end with a clear hairband, then twist the remainder of the hair into a spiraled chignon. Affix this chignon under your ear with some pins. If you’re going for a more dramatic look, you can style this bun in a more sophisticated way and also add some extensions to the mix.
