5-Minute Braid: DIY Cara D’s Side Braid for Your Holiday Party
It’s that time of year again when all the holiday parties seem to just sneak up on you out of nowhere. But that doesn’t mean you should stress out over doing your hair, even if you are running late to your office white elephant exchange. Remember: photos from the night are bound to be all over Insta, and you deserve to look your best. So whether you’re pressed for time or a lazy girl at heart, we’re here to help by teaching you a party-worthy braid you can pull of in just five minutes.
This modern side braid channels one of our favorite hair moments from 2014 — Cara Delevigne’s edgy rock girl down ‘do. What makes it a stellar five minute option? This plait looks great on second-day hair (skip the poo + the wait time for your locks to dry) and can be achieved with basic braiding skills and not much else. So slip into that dress already (one less thing to do to get ready!), then scroll down to get started.
1. Place a deep side part in your hair using a comb.
