I learned how to French braid my hair when I was in college. My roommates and I all had shoulder length hair and living in an all-girls dorm, it was the most natural thing in the world that we all experimented with different hair styles.
Since college, I’ve gone through a progression of hairstyles – with most of them being too short to braid. But I’ve settled into a bob and about a year ago, I saw a picture of a side French braid and decided to give it a try. With the summer weather, the side braid has become my go-to style because it keeps the hair off my face. I laugh at humidity – and the style is great for the gym too. Want to learn to French braid?
