Whether you’re looking for a homecoming hairstyle or an everyday look, this side elastic braid is one of my absolute favorite hairstyles! This DIY hairstyle may look complicated, but in reality it is super simple and quick to do! You will love this look for a prom hairstyle, a holiday party hairstyle, or even a romantic beach hairstyle look

To recreate this DIY hairstyle tutorial you begin by creating a lace braid on the side of the head near the temple. Only adding hair into the one side of the braid. Then I go back and pancake the hair to add fullness and fluff.

Once the lace braid is secure then I take the lace braid and another small piece of hair from the other side. Secure them together.

From this point on you just need to take one piece of hair from each side, twist the hair, and then secure them with an elastic. Go back and tug on the hair to loosen the twists and make it look so pretty and full.

The ease comes from you only needing to use a few elastics and twists. But the braid itself looks so amazing and beautiful. It looks like a fancy french braid or a fax french braid.

This hurt so much!! I put looked great but hurt so much when I took it out!! Partially because it was beautiful and also I ripped out a little bit of my hair!

Eris Discord says:

I did this braid and slept in it, and it didn't come apart. For dark hair, use the black elastics, they camouflage well.
