Outdoors Day-Date: Soft Side Braid

The key to the perfect hairstyle for an active date, whether it's a casual hike, the beach or even rock climbing, is one that gets your hair away from your face, but is still cuter than a normal ponytail. We love a tousled side braid like this one.

HOW-TO

#1: Quickly curl and finger-comb through your hair. This step is optional, but it gives the hair extra hold and adds a little extra finish to the style. Tease the top of the hair at the crown for body.

#2: Twist and pin the teased section back.

#3: Gather the rest of the hair to one side and loosely braid the hair beginning at the chin (we did a fishtail braid). Braiding the hair lower down gives a more unpolished and lived-in look.

#4: Secure the braid with a clear plastic

#5: Carefully fan out the braid to make it wider. Hairspray the entire style and you're guaranteed to have a cute, seemingly easy braid that'll last through even the most strenuous activity.
