Cool Braided Hairstyles For Girls
Braids are a wonderful way to add charm to your young girl's hairstyle. All it takes a little practice to make it perfect.
1. Double Braids
Tie hair in double ponytails on either side with a strong parting in the centre. Divide each into three sections and tie in plaits on each side. This hairstyle can be done for mid-length hair and longer.
2. Braided Half Ponytail
Horizontally section hair from the crown upwards and tie it into a tight ponytail. This half ponytail can be braided in multiple ways; as a three-strand plait or a French braid starting right from the hairline. This hairstyle can be done for mid-length hair and longer.
3. Crown Braid
Gather hair at the back of the head low at the nape. Braid its length into a braid style of your choice. Once done, wrap the braid across the head at the hairline and pin in on the other side behind the ear. This hairstyle can be done for long hair only.
4. Braided Accents
Brush hair backwards across the head. Separate three to four small hair sections and braid them in a contrasting braid style like a Dutch braid or fishtail braid which will add contrast to the hair. Tie each braid and pin them with clips over the hair length.
5. Waterfall Braid
Brush all hair to the back. Beginning from the hairline, create a horizontal braid across the hair and within it, loop in hair sections after certain intervals. Continue until you've reached the side of the head and pin in place.
Cool Ponytail Hairstyles For Girls
One of the simplest types of cool hairstyles for girls are those involving tying. They require little to no skill, just enough bands to hold the hair in place.
Part the hair down the middle from the hairline to the back. Brush each side sections for no frizz or bumps to show through. Gather the hair and tie into ponytails high on the side above each ear.
2. Braided Ponytail
Gather full length of hair at the back of the head. Tie it tightly in place high at the crown. Braid its length in a style of your choosing and tie it at the end.
3. Space Buns
Create a centre parting from the hairline until the back. Brush the base of each side until smooth. Gather each length high on top and tie tightly into buns at the top. Tie in place and ensure both space buns are equidistant from each other.
4. Braided Ponytail Accent
Gather all hair at the crown. Brush the base until smooth. Clip hair in place. Remove a thick section right from the hair line. Braid this section in a Dutch or French braid. Tie in place when you've reached the end. Then add the braided accent into the ponytail, smoothen the rest of the hair once more and tie at the crown of the head.
5. Loop Ponytails
Gather hair at the top of the crown and tie it in place. In the length, brush a small section near top and tie the circular hair section with a band. Repeat this to create two or three more circular sections until the end of the hair.
