Wedding Hairstyle!!! The prettiest formal side braid – EASY

May 2, 2018

HAPPY WEDNESDAY!!!!!!  Wednesdays are most people’s nightmares… they’re slow, usually unproductive, and never take you to Friday haha!  I love Wednesdays though because they’re the day I get post my hair tutorials!!!!  Today I’ve got THE most beautiful side braid for you — it’s gonna be PERFECT for those weddings this spring and summer.  Updos and formal hairstyles in general are a little bit tricky to teach.  There are so many random steps and usually a lot of random pinning involved.  I wanted to create a hairstyle that was easily duplicatable, one with clear steps that you guys could figure out on the fly and make it look good without a lot of practice.  I’m hoping this becomes one of your favorites because it’s totally one of mine!

There are three basic french braids involved and a lot of curls and texture.  I didn’t explain the curls in the video because I’ve done it in so many, but I used a 32mm curling wand and then used the Living Proof Dry Volume Blast + Kenra 25 Hairspray at the end of the style.  If your hair is slippery and you’re having a hard time getting the braids to stay in, use this Grip Spray and you’ll be good to go!  Also dry shampoo usually does the trick too!  For curls tutorial click here.

Shirt is from American Eagle here and I shared a bunch of my favorite pieces right now in this post here.

Make sure to watch the tutorial so you can see how I combined the braids and don’t forget to tag me on instagram if you recreate this hairstyle, I love seeing you guys being inspired by these styles!
