How to Do an Easy, Sleek Side Braid (Best for Curly-Haired Gals)

Ah, the classic French braid—so easy and so elegant but so ready for a makeover. We put an edgy twist on the stylish 'do that curly-haired ladies can rock better than anyone. Watch to see how this simple style is done.

Step 1: Use a comb to give your hair a clean side part. Add a touch of styling paste to really separate the two sides.

Step 2: Take a section of hair below the part and French braid until you hit about halfway back on the side of your head. Secure in place with bobby pins.

Step 3: Repeat Step 2 with another section of hair below the first French braid. Give the rest of your hair a good rustle to set everything place and then you are good to go.
