Ever since I cut my hair short a year or two ago, there’s only a few hair styles I know how to do. My signature loose waves, or blown out straight. I wish I had more skills to do a bunch of cute top knots or whatever, but I just can’t master much. In an attempt to start updating my hair routine, I’ve become obsessed with wearing this mini little side braid. It took a few practice rounds to master, but now it’s my go-to style when I want my hair styled and out of my face. Given that I wear it so much, I finally was able to shoot this easy tutorial to show you the steps on my little side braid do!


Poor Little It Girl - How To Side Braid On Short Hair

STEP ONE: I typically start out right after I do the loose waves in my hair. Or I do it on “dirty” hair I haven’t washed a day or two. Basically you just don’t want your hair to be too soft or slippery.

STEP TWO: If your hair is in a middle or slight side part, comb over your hair to make a deep part, and try not to keep it an exact straight line, it’s ok if it has a curve.

STEP THREE: Take a bobby pin or two and clip back a small section of the back of your hair. This keeps it out of the way while you braid and serves as the hair that’ll cover your bobby pins at the end. I suggest using pins that are similar to the color of your hair.

STEP FOUR: Divide your hair into three sections and start the process of braiding it back. It helps to look in a mirror so you can see what you’re doing.

STEP FIVE: Each time you pull a piece of hair over, grab another small section on each side, like you would doing a french braid.

STEP SIX: Keep braiding down as far as you can, continuing to grab hair from each side as you cross over your braid till you’ve gone as far as you can.

STEP SEVEN: Using either a new bobby pin or the one that was holding the back section of hair, secure your braid to the spot you want it to sit on your head. It’s ok if the end of the braid falls out that’s not secured in the pin.

STEP EIGHT: Finish off with a mist of your favorite hairspray. I like to spray right on where the bobby pin is set at so it’s extra secure.

STEP NINE: And then that’s it – you’ve got a fun little side braid!

I’ve tried to master this look before, and I have such trouble because my hair is thin and I’m not very good at French Braiding.


That being said, you have thin hair too, right? Maybe I should just practice a bit more before writing off the idea. It looks so good on you!
