Apparently I’ve been feeling creative with my hair as of late, seeing as this is the second hair tutorial I’ve written about in a rather short period of time.
I’ll take all the creativity I can get.
I find that with long hair, styling and unique ideas seem to be easier to accomplish. Is it impossible to uniquely style short hair? Absolutely not. But, long hair means you have more to work with, which is why I think I’m on this creative role, and this particular style may be easier to create with longer hair.
I was playing around with a front braid the other day and I thought I would share what I did to create this look. If you know how to do a Dutch braid, you’re all set for this style, but a French braid would work equally well.
Begin by sectioning off a small amount of hair on the side of your part where the majority of your hair falls (if you have a middle part, it comes down to preference as to which side you want the braid to fall on). Divide the section into three pieces, and begin to braid, picking up more hair as you work your way down. As you pick up more hair, braid towards the back of your head so the braid rests roughly at your ear. Secure the braid with an elastic, and voila; you have a beautiful Dutch front braid, and your hair stays out of your face.

This look takes about 10-15 minutes to create, and it can be work casually or formally. Whether you leave your hair out or tie it back in a ponytail, the braid will stand out, and it’s a stylish way to keep your hair away from your face.
