Shared with us by Peggie Huang, stylist at ARROJO Studio SoHo, we love both the artistry of this chunky plait on the bias, and the way the tail of the braid has been fanned out into wonderfully nonchalant wisps. Peggie was also kind enough to share her steps to creating this eye-catching look. Great for a night out, a weekend brunch, or even just keeping hair off of the neck in this Indian Summer, learn how to create it in the notes.

You know I love a messy side braid just as much as I love tousled waves, so I thought, why not combine the two? But you also know that it takes the right combination of technique and messiness to actually create a perfectly imperfect do. Sure it may look like the cool girl at brunch just effortlessly crafted her hair into that style, but you know better. Even mussy styles take work! You need the right product, technique, practice, and even some luck to create effortless imperfection. But I know you can achieve it! Click through to the notes to learn how to wear your new favorite Sunday brunch style. –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →
