Side French Braid

November 1, 2012

It’s Emily from It Girl Rag Doll and I am back again with another hair tutorial for ya!  Going with the same flow as last month, I am sticking to hairstyles that are way easy to do, but look like a whole lot more work went into them and it is guaranteed to get you tons of compliments!  This has got to be one of the more simple and quick hair styles I do from time to time, especially when I maybe didn’t get the chance to wash my hair, or it’s just not looking right that day.

…And so I give you the side French braid!

1.  To start, have your hair parted over to the side; either one works. I like to have mine on the right usually so that the braid falls on the side of my beauty mark and what I would like to call my good side 😉

2.  Take a little bit of hair from the top and separate it into three pieces like you’re are going to start a braid.  French braiding involves grabbing a little bit of hair to add to each section each time you cross it over. Gradually all of your hair will be within the braid. Taking less hair for each section will make the weave more tight and small, larger amounts will result in a thicker braid with less twists.

3 & 4.  Continue the braid along the side of your head, guiding it as far or close to your face as you want. I usually like to have mine so it’s framing my face and runs behind my ear.

5 & 6.  Eventually you will get to the nape of your neck where you will just keep on braiding like a regular ol’ braid. And then tie it off and you’re done! Simple right?  I am all about simple, non fussy type stuff that looks good!

Go and try it out, don’t be afraid to drop me a line at to let me know how it goes or if you have any questions! And remember to stop back at the beginning of each month for some more things to do with all that hair on your head!
