This simple, traditional braid hair style is suddenly right back in the fashion spotlight! It’s a super-trendy way to tame long, thick hair when the breeze from the sea is blowing all along the beach!

Not only is the side-braid a classically attractive way to wear your hair, it’s also a very fashionable and practical way to keep cool when the temperature is rising!

For a fashionably messy plait, the hair is swept back and around to one side, without brushing, and then braided down to the tips and secured with a covered elastic band.  The loose tendrils of hair are left free – to show that this is, above all, a casual and relaxed up-to-the minute look!
