Crown of Braids Hair Tutorial for Little Girls

My daughter and I have had fun over the years trying a few different hairstyles.  She has the longest hair.  I wish mine could look like that!

This is one hairstyle we tried a couple of weeks ago for church.  It stayed in the whole day with only a couple of tweaks to the bobby pins when she was going in and out of her car seat.  We will definitely be doing this one again!

Crown of Braids DIY Hair Style Tutorial

Step 1: Part the hair in the center

Step 2: Make a half up pig tail on either side of the part

Step 3: Flip each of the pig tails over and under.  Pull your rubber band out, split the hair, and then flip the hair into the pig tail and pull through. Tighten the pig tail back up to make it look neat and tidy.

Step 4: Braid both pig tails.

Step 5: Cross the pig tails over each other and weave them together until they are tight and the smaller edges of the ends of the pig tails line up with the top end of the other braid.

Step 6: Use bobby pins (about 2 on each side) to lock the hair in place.

Step 7: Curl the loose long hair if you like for a dressier look.

Step 8: Use a little hair spray to keep everything in place.

Have fun and please come back and share with us your do’s in the comments below!
