Like winged eyeliner, many braided hairstyles seem really complicated and thus a little intimidating the first time to you thy them. The good news is that there are quite a few pretty plaits that are actually pretty easy to achieve once you've practiced a couple of times. This French braided side pony is one such style.
If you can already French braid, you're 95% of the way there, the only thing you need to master is doing so at a weird angle so the braid trails horizontally across the back of your head instead of straight down!
To help you get the look down pat, just follow the tutorial below.
Brush your hair through then part it deep on one side.
Tip your head so that your cheek is parallel with the floor. At your hairline on the side facing upward, take a piece of hair from near your temple and divide it into three sections.
Start braiding, adding small pieces of hair into the braid as you go.
Keep going until your reach the other side and secure the braid with a hair elastic below your ear.
If the braid looks a little messy, that's fine. Tousled, bohemian chic is right on-trend at the moment! You can pin back any major pieces that have fallen out and even secure the braid if you need to.
Tease a couple of wispy sections loose at the front to frame your face then complete the look with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray by L'Oréal Paris.That's it!
