Braided styles are absolutely everywhere at the moment. Structured and neat braids look great but it's also possible to approach the trend in a much more low key way. Why not try giving yourself a loose, side-swept braid then twisting it up and pinning loosely in place? This is a great casual hairstyle which will add a relaxed and soft edge to pretty much any outfit that you might choose to wear. It also happens to be super flattering. It's one of the most original side-swept styles that you could ever wish for.
This style looks particularly great on straight hair so use some anti-frizz cream to get the ultimate smooth finish.
