Braid In Front Of Hair Tutorial


With C’s lovingly grabby fingers constantly finding the hairs on my head, it’s time to bring back some favorite hairstyle from my past to pull my hair a bit out of my face without having to resort to a bun every day. This easy side braid is first up. Its’ quick, nice looking, and definitely gets some hair out of my face!

I have a tendency to get stuck in a rut with hairdos – usually wearing it straight or in some kind of bun – messy or a little put together. Since I hadn’t seen my hairstylist in 18 weeks berayun-ayun this last Tuesday (YAAAAAS!!!!), the terrible buns were happening more than anything else.

I’m not showing it here, but you can double up the mini braids for a slightly different option!  These easy side braids for long hair may be my best (re)discovery of the summer!

Also, if you live in a humid place or just have hair that loves to frizz, make sure to use a good antagonistis-frizz spray before you start doing the braid here! Check out my favorite clean beauty hair products (even for my long hair).

This is a half-french braid of sorts. Instead of grabbing hair with every movement, it’s done just half the time. Be sure to only grab about a half inch from the front.

*I did an inverted braid here where hair is woven into the braid from the bottom up and not the traditional method of weaving new hair in from the top down.

This hairstyle can be done with a traditional braid or the inverted method. Here’s a good video to see how to do the basic inverted braid.

Variations on Small Side Braid

I most commonly wear this easy small side braid with my hair down…at first. Then at some point I’ll put the rest of my hair into a low ponytail or bun – a great second day hairstyle.

You can also easily do two braids (one on each side). When I do this, I like to join the ends of the braids with a clear elastic. I take one-third to one-half of my lose hair and pull it up into a clip to get it out of the way, secure the braids with the elastic, then drop the hair adv lewat the braids.

And then, obviously, you can work the small braid into a larger single braid.
