Today's 'hairspiration' of the week inspired from my Pinterest board is the side snake braid. I've seen this look on Pinterest for a while now but haven't been able to find a tutorial... until yesterday, thanks to the lovely Amber from Barefoot Blonde!! You won't believe how easy it is to do on your own! Below you will find a helpful step by step tutorial to help you achieve this look.

The inspiration vs. my take.
Now onto the tutorial! ⇊
STEP ONE: Brush through hair and create side part. *Side note: To give your hair that extra bit of wave, you can either loosely curl it or sleep with a braid and shake it out the next morning.
STEP TWO: Take a top section 2 inches back and below and bobbi pin behind ear. Take remaining section underneath and gather, pulling rest of hair behind shoulder.
STEP THREE: Create a simple braid down. Make sure to pull in a backward motion to ensure that your braid will lay flat again head when done.
STEP FOUR: Leave about an inch at the bottom of your braid, keeping separated the three sections.
STEP FIVE: Take two of the end sections and gather into one hand. With the remaining section, hold down while you use your fingers with other hand to pull braid straight up. This will create a tight zig zag look of a snake.
STEP SIX: Remove bobbi pin and use to secure the braid in the back. And there you have it!
