Are you looking for a natural hairstyle that keeps your tresses looking pretty and breathing freely? If you are in the habit of putting your hair in very tight hairstyles with plenty of pins, braids may be just right to keep your hair healthy and free of damage. There is something about braids that is full of girly fun, and a braid or two can make a woman of any look perfectly enchanting. There are many ways to braid hair, and among these Side Braid Hairstyles are popular for their fun and fashionable feel.
Braiding your hair can be a great way to stand out at a party. The point of making a braid on one side of the head is to have an attractive profile. When people look at your hairstyle from the braided side, they can enjoy the delightful woven look. The way you do your braid often depends on the kind of look you want, and the thickness of your hair. If you have very thick hair, a simple braid hanging down one shoulder may look simple and elegant. For a fresh country girl look, you can braid your hair away from the forehead and have it wrap around the back of your head. You can keep the tresses open with a wound up side braid holding them in place. For very short hair a tiny ponytail at the back can often look cool with a narrow braid framing the front of your head. You can have the braid done in a wrap-around style, or let it just naturally flow into the open portion of your hair. You can put up your hair in a braided updo for a formal look. The intensity of the braid can be controlled to create exciting new looks. For a very formal feel to the hair, make a tight braid on the side and arrange it in an updo. If you are in a relaxed mood or simply out enjoying the outdoors, get your hair flowing loosely and a simple braid hanging very low can match your relaxed vibe.
