Twisted Side Braid for Various Occasions

The first thing you need to do in recreating twisted side braid is creating texture before you begin actually braiding. It is easy to achieve voluminous hair with the help of texturizing spray or mousse. In case you want to skip this step, your braid will look flat. By the way, second or third-day hair would be perfect for this hairdo.

Make Side Braid

Divide your hair into two sections with a side part. For a more creative variant, opt for a zigzag side part. A comb will help you with it.

On the side where you have a smaller bulk of hair take a bigger part of hair and start braiding. Follow your hairline till the moment you get to the other side. It’s like an unfinished halo braid.

Keep braiding on the other side till you reach a jaw line. The front part of hair should be left out in order to make a twist afterwards. Tie your French braid up with a hair tie. A clear one would be perfect. Afterwards, use some hair spray so that there won’t be any unnecessary flyways.

Front Twist Going Into Braid

The next step is twisting that front part. Make sure you do it in the opposite direction from the face. Twist it along the hairline till the ear. Once you have reached it, make a small hole at the back of the braid and pull your twist through it. Now you should have four hair strands.

Hair How-To: Twisted Side Braid

Keep on braiding. On this stage, you should be creating a braid out of four pieces. When you are done, secure the braid with one more clear hair tie. In case you want to slay it all day long, add some bobby pins to the twist.

In order to achieve a more romantic effect, try spreading the braid a little bit. You can also pull out some strands to make it even more effortless.

As a finishing touch, add a teeny-tiny amount of finishing hairspray and you are ready to go and conquer the world.
