Your hair is probably the last thing you want to think about on New Year's Day - i.e. the day after New Year's Eve - so we have an easy lazy girl side braid hairstyle for long hair that will keep your locks under control. To get the look, just follow the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1
Begin by brushing or combing your hair through to detangle it. Be gentle, and take your time working out any particularly stubborn knots.

Step 2
Spray the roots with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray, then muss and scrunch your hair with your hands. To increase volume, massage the roots with your fingertips wherever necessary.

Step 3
Part your hair on one side, then sweep the lengths over the opposite shoulder.

Step 4
Loosely braid the hair all the way down to the ends, then secure it with a hair tie. You can go for a fishtail braid or a rope twist if you want to switch things up a bit from a regular three-strand plait.

Step 5
Loosen the style with your hands and gently pull a few pieces out to frame your face and soften the overall look.

Step 6
Complete your new side braid with a generous mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to give it great hold and to prevent unwanted frizz and flyaways. That's it!
