One of the first tutorials we ever posted on our website nearly 5 years ago, was a Slide-Up Braid {aka Snake Braid} That video has over 6,000,000 views today!

We have done a few variations of the Slide-Up Braid over the years, but this is a beautiful one because it is so subtle. The purpose of a Sides Up style is to pull back your sides with another hairstyling accent and feature your natural or curly hair. This style does just that.

By creating Slide-Up Braids on either side of the head, and pinning them back while covering the pins with your down hair, you are left with such a beautiful hairstyle!

Bailey wore this hairdo to her Christmas concert yesterday and received lots of compliments on it. We are certain you will too, when you wear this!
