Hair Updo Tutorial: One Side Braid Hair Updo

This hair updo is perfect for summer or even for formal events. :)
Here's my cousin Issa as my model.
It's her birthday today! :)


Ok, let's start!
One side Braid:
1. Gather all the materials needed. (Comb/brush, elastic, any hairclip)

2. Get 2-3 inches part of hair.
3. Section it in 3 even parts. (left, middle, right)
4. Overlap left onto the middle.
5. Then overlap right onto the left.
*Sorry, I'm not very good in writing instructions. LOL* 
6. Add small pieces of hair every time you overlap a section.
7. Continue braiding until you reach the tip of your ears
and stop adding small pieces of hair until you reach the ends.
8. Secure with elastic and you're off to go!
Optional step: You can add clips floral hair clips if you it to look more elegant. :)

There you have it!
Enjoy braiding! :D
Hugs and kisses,
