The side braid is sexy, playful and surprisingly simple. This hairstyle works great on any occasion. Whether you’re going to see a movie with some friends or you’re home with family, try the side braid at any time. Although your hair has to be slightly long for this look, those of you with shorter hair can also create a small side braid with the hair on the side of your head, near your ear. Tie a small braid starting at your temple and moving to the side. Tie it with a small hair tie at the back of your head, and you’ll immediately have a fun ’60s look.
