Nicole Kidman could be on her way to starting a new hairstyle trend that is perfect for the summer. She sported a side plait at the 2011 Billboards Music Award.
Nicole Kidman : Side braid hairstyle
The side braid was kept from giving a priggish feel by adding a messy touch to it, and carefully arranged side locks gave Nicole a very girly look. We like!
How to make side braids
Nicole Kidman hairsyle : Side braid
It is quite easy to sport this hairstyle. Start by making a side parting and loosely braid your hair right below the ear lobe. Make the knots tighter as you progress down. Secure the plait with a rubber band. Pull out a few tendrils from it to give it a messy air. For those of you, who have even length hair; scrunch up a few strands from the side parting so that the hair softly frames your face. For those who have bangs or shorter locks in the front, curl it up with big rollers and then brush out the curls till they open up in waves. Comb it out sideways on your forehead.
However, it may not be the most practical idea to have locks fall over one eye. You can improvise on it by arranging it more to the side. Another way to copy this look would be to tie a side plait right before you hit bed. Spritz hairspray so that the braid does not become “too” messy, if or when you change sides. By morning your hairstyle will naturally look like that of Nicole’s. I kid you not!
This hairstyle does not only give a coy yet flirty feel but is also great for knocking off years from your face. The neck is left bare which is a blessing for those living in places where the temperature is not too kind during summer months. This hairstyle is trendy and also immensely practical, making it ideal for this summer.
