Simple trick to add texture to your braid: Get 3 strands for a normal braid. Loosely braid One Strand. Use that braided strand with the other 2 to form the final braid of all your hair. Loosen with fingers for more "messy.
Hair Style: Side braid (left) to side bun (right). The bun can be created by separating the ends of the hair, looping and pin down each one. So cute! I just do this hairstyle with a normal braid and I'll work up to the more difficult braid!
