Best Kept Braid Secret.

I can't get enough of braids, especially the simple, side swept braid.  For some reason, it reminds me of summer, warm weather, and the beach.

So earlier I was looking at the beauty department and ran across a post on the best secret, so of course I had to see what it was all about.  

The secret is:

In a regular braid there are 3 strands. For this look, all you do is braid one of those strands beforehand and loosen it up with your fingers, then braid as usual. This creates extra texture + breaks up the mundane pattern of a regular braid. 

My hair is not as long as hers, but I can put it into a small side braid.  I think I may try this look tomorrow.

What do you guys think of it?

That definitely looks very cute! It wouldn't work on my hair though - it's too short. :(
