Hairstyle Poll – Side Braid with or without Flower
A simple side braid will indeed go with everything. But you can add spice, flavour, glam, elan and what-have-you with some well-chosen hair accessories. We love the over-sized flower in the hair with a plain Jane side braid. That one element makes the look fresh, summery and also rather seductive since it brings to mind sultry flamenco dancers. Imagine the ease with which you can switch the look – wear your sturdy but womanly side-swept braid at the office and just pin on that floral hair accessory when you’re done for the day. Voila!
