A Simple French Braid

January 14, 2015

Every now and then you just need a simple french braid.  I love this hairstyle because it’s 1) super easy and fast 2) the braid is all up front so it’s just begging for compliments and 3) it adds some great volume if you’re hair is a little flat.  I love all the intricate combined braids but sometimes, sometimes I just don’t have the time!  And while I’d love to spend twenty minutes fishtailing my hair, it’s usually just not in the cards with two little ones to look after.  This year I’m going to focus some time on tutorials that are easy and fast enough for rushed mornings but that can be dressed up for date night or something a little more special.  I hope you guys love this hairstyle – it’s one of my favorites.  Simple.  Elegant and Fast.

It’s gonna get up to 25 degrees on Saturday!!  Who knows, maybe I’ll be brave enough to get out and take some outfit pictures!!

The video is quick and pretty straight forward but you have to watch it to the end because there’s the funniest little blurb of Savy.  That girl – she’s so sassy!


  • You are putting me to shame! I was thinking about taking outfit pictures today but I just couldn’t drag myself outside to do it in 35 degree weather! Haha! This weekend it’s supposed to be up to the low 50’s and I was thinking maybe then. <Insert laughing/crying emoticon here, lol!

    Oh my word!! I LOVE this hairstyle and I love how easy and quick it is. I will definitely be trying it out!! P.S. Savy is ADORABLE!!! 😀

  • This is basically what I did to my hair today. I have an 18 month old running round when I’m getting ready for work so quick and easy is a must! Thanks for all the hair tutorials, I am glad I stumbled on your site via Pinterest! You have given me inspiration for several of my recent hair-do’s. 🙂

  • Thank you so much! You literally taught me how to French braid (after how many years and tutorials?) and waterfall braid. You’re awesome!
