Boho Side Braid
You Can Do: Boho Side Braid
The Basic Tips
• Start with dry hair that is completely knot-free.
• Create a deep side part with your fingers-not 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.
The Basic Products
My hair is too short.
Solution: If your hair is longer than chin-length you can make it work! Take your cue from Diane Kruger-a shorter braid. Tie off with a long, floppy ribbon, which adds extra length.
My hair is too thick and unruly.
Solution: All the better! This look is all about texture and volume. Straighten out a few face-framing pieces and leave the rest au naturale. The result will be a hefty, texturized braid like Miley Cyrus.
My braids fall out during the day.
Another way to add staying power is to try a more intricate plait like the fishtail braid Minka Kelly wore, the step by step on this super pretty style here.
