The Side Braid

Witness the comeback of braids, which haven’t been this stylish since, well, fifth grade. What makes this updated version grown-up is its soft texture and relaxed style. “It’s chic yet beachy,” says Laurent Philippon, a hairstylist in New York City. Let pieces fall forward to add to the casual appeal.

 

How to: (1) Using your hands, work a golf ball–size dollop of mousse through dry hair. Try Barex Gloss Mousse Normal Hold on wavy hair, Strong Hold on fine (each $26, folica.com). (2) Finger-tousle hair for fullness. (3) Gather strands under one ear, braid, and secure with an elastic.
