1. To start, part your hair to the side. Loosely gather all of your hair and pull it to the other side of your head. Begin braiding your hair over one shoulder. (For a messier vibe, allow a few pieces of hair fall out around your face while braiding.)
2. Secure the braid with a thin, clear elastic. Use your fingers to loosen the braid.
If you want to be uber fancy, and have one more minute:
3. Use a 2-inch curling iron to curl some of the face-framing pieces. Mist the entire look with a lightweight hairspray. See, that wasn’t so hard, was it?
