In case you couldn't tell from all of my posts, this is my go-to! The side braid adds a polished look, keeps any bangs or long layers at bay, and allows a ponytail or bun in the back at any height you like. Part hair deeply on the left and section off about a finger’s width of hair from forehead back, all the way from the part to right ear. Secure remaining hair out of the way. Divide hair into three sections at the part. Weave left piece over center piece, then weave right piece over what is now the center piece. Take the new left piece, add a little more hair from the left, and weave it over the center piece. Keep French braiding hair, adding a little bit more from each side as you go, until braid runs out of hair at right ear. Secure braid with a bobby pin, unclip remaining hair, and gather everything into a ponytail.
