A video how-to for a workout-friendly hairstyle for long hair.
Here is how to do a loose side braid. Start by making a deep side part on either side of your head. Next, braid any front layers and pin that section behind your ear with a bobby pin. Finally, loosely braid the rest of your hair and secure it with an elastic. After you exercise, undo the braid and you'll have gorgeous, tussled waves.
