I don't usually have much success with hair tutorials, since I never really learned how to french braid, and my fine, straight, layered hair can sometimes look unforgiving in up-dos. But last weekend, I decided to try out this side braids into a messy bun look, and I was happy with the results. It was a fast look to achieve, with the most time consuming part being the light backcombing to create body on the top. I wore this on a rainy Sunday full of reading, but I might even try to substitute this in for my usual simple low-pony or bun for teaching.
