Faux Shaved Side
Brush through all of your hair to ensure knot free hair before styling. Create a slight side parting, so just off from a centre parting. The side with the most hair on will be left and styled later on in this tutorial.
So the remaining side will be the side we are going to braid to create that faux shaven side look. We’re going to do 3 little french braid starting from the top of your parting and finishing just above your ear. To ensure your 3 sections are equal you can use the tail end of your back comb brush or simply use your fingers to separate your hair into 3.
Now to begin braiding. This can be a little fiddly but once you get going it becomes so much easier. I like to start braiding from the top right across the line of my parting. French braid the section to the back of your hair and secure in place with a small hair band. Next move on to the second section and repeat, and the
same with the third section.
So now we’re going to return to the other side and tend to the hair. We’re going to backcomb this for added volume and texture. Be sure to backcomb from the top and work your way down your head for ultimate volume.
This step can be totally up to you if you want to make use out of it! I think having curls throughout the ends give this hairstyle a girly feel and I love the added texture. I have kept my curls in from my hairdo yesterday for this look as I love second day curls. If you want to add cutesy curls too be sure to use your straighteners or some curling tongs/ conical wand for your desired look. If you want bigger curls, remember bigger sections! Smaller curls, smaller sections.
