What you will need:
Emma wore a chic side plait made of french braided hair. This hairstyle can be a little time consuming and you might need to ask a friend to help you.
Step 1: Start off by bushing your hair until it's smooth. Any bumps in your hair will make braiding your hair more difficult than need be. Avoid using too much product right now. You want your hair, and the braid, to look effortless. After you've brushed your hair part it to one side.
Step 2: Gather all your hair to one side (the same side as your parted hair).
Optional Step: Tug a few shorter strands of hair out of your hair on the opposide side of your part., Letting a few strands frame your face will soften the look, so if you want a few shorter strands to curl out around your neck, separate out those pieces now.
Step 3: Start the braid underneath the ear opposite the shoulder where you’ve gathered your hair. The goal of this braid is to wrap the side braid around the bottom of your head and over one shoulder for a more romantic, finished look. Start by separating a small section of hair from the bottom of the hair going across the back of your neck.
Step 4: Split this section of hair into three sections and begin braiding your hair into a french braid. Grab one of the outer sections and cross it over to the middle, then grab the outer section on the opposite side and pull it to the middle.
Step 5: Continue braiding, this time incorporate more hair into the upper half of the braid for a half-French braid. Basically this means to pull hair that hasn't been braided yet into the new braid.
Step 6: When the braid reaches your ear, braid the rest of your hair like a normal braid. When you’re done, the braid will start at one shoulder and finish hanging down over the other one.
Step 7: Secure the bottom of the braid with a hair elastic and spray the braid with hairspray.
