How To Do A Messy Side Braid

Today the hairstyles most sought after are the simplest and easiest hair to complete and a very popular one (which is seen among many actresses) is the messy or loose side braid. Braiding hair is the oldest hairstyle in history and has been around for centuries – there was never a time in history when braids were never used. The ancient Egyptians made braiding popular throughout the world of that time, and they would braid their wigs in various ways (which the Egyptians used wigs instead of their real hair because of the lice problems — so they usually shaved their heads). Braiding has been around since 3000 B.C., and there have been different styles used throughout history. The fishtail braid was popular among the Egyptians, as well as cornrows, but other braiding styles (such as the French braid) did not come until the 1800s.
There was a time when many women saw braids as a “little girl” style, and braids became only fashionable among middle school girls or younger. Surprisingly, women have begun wearing braids again, and especially the side braid that became popular when the starlet Lauren Conrad first started the trend in 2008. Ever since, the stars of Hollywood have been wearing the side braid in many different styles, and some of the popular styles include a messy fishtail braid, a thick plaited braid, and a side French braid.
Braiding hair is one of the easiest things to do, and the messy side braid can be completed in a few simple steps. First, (to get that messy look) part your hair with your fingers as far over as you can, and then pull out different pieces to frame your face. Then pull your hair over to one side and begin braiding, but depending on the braid you want you will go about braiding differently. If you want just a simple plaited braid, then begin the braid on the side and when you finish the braid you can pull at it to make it look messier. For a French braid, start the braid at the back of the head (towards the middle of the head). The fishtail braid is the best one to use for a messy side braid: gather your hair to one side, split it in two sections, pull a small piece of hair from on of the sections (from the bottom) and pull it around to the top of the other one, do the same on the other side, and repeat until it is completed.
