One of my go-to hairstyles is a messy side braid or fishtail. They are really easy but still chic. However, using a regular hair elastic at the end of the braid ruins the look. It took me a really long time to find an alternative but I finally found one.
Today’s tip is… Secure Your Side Braid with a Bobby Pin.
So this may seem complicated but I will try my beast to explain how it works. When you have about an inch left at the end of your braid, divide your hair into two sections. Now tie them in a loose knot and slide the bobby pin upwards. You want to make sure that as much of the bobby pin is hidden in the braid as possible. And, voila, you have a chic side braid and not hair elastic to ruin it.
