"Braid In A Braid" Hairstyle

This cute and unique braid looks quite complex, but is actually a very simple hairstyle and quick to make!

It's always nice to have a few 5 minute hairstyle ideas on hand for busy school mornings (or work.)  And.... this braid is much more fun than a boring ponytail or bun!

We have had many requests for easy hairstyles lately and I love how simple (yet unique) this braid is. If you can make a standard 3 strand braid, then you can definitely create this braided plait using a micro braid! This is also a hairstyle that can be done on yourself easily (for those of you who do not have a personal stylist available at your beck and call.) ;) Yay!

We opted for a low side braid this time, which does require fairly long hair.  Of course, this braid could also be made in a standard ponytail, pigtails, pull backs, a half ponytail.... whatever you want.  The trick to making this braid really "pop" is by stretching the strands when you are finished. Pulling the edges of the braid really make this hairstyle go from ordinary to extraordinary. Hope you enjoy braiding braids! Thanks for watching and sharing!!
