Ahh, the side braid. It’s the most simple braid. Even more simple than a simple braid… if that makes any sense. I always have trouble doing a braid to the back of my head. Am I the only one? I don’t even know how to french braid. I’m failing at this whole “girl” thing.
Since I am braid-challenged, I typically stick to the side braid. It’s quick, easy, and looks effortlessly beachy. Also, if you have highlights or multicolored hair, the colors will basically dance together in a swirl of perfection in a braid. Because of this, I think it is the most perfect summer hairstyle. Keep a ponytail band on you at all times, because you never know when you’ll need to do a quick hairstyle that makes you look great!
