The Basic Tips
Start with dry hair that is completely knot-free.
Create a deep side part with your fingersnot a comb. This is important to facilitate a more undone look and help you stay away from anything too severe.
Pull all of your hair over one shoulder and braid to the side. If you can create a French braid, like Rachel McAdams, do! If not, no worries. A simple plait still works.
Fasten with a clear elastic, and leave out wispy pieces to frame the face.
