Just by changing the type of braid and its position, a very unique, chic yet easy hairstyle is possible. Moreover you can easily do-it-yourself on your little girl. Simply follow the steps below and you are set to see a delightful hairdo, without any cost.

You will need

  • A wide tooth comb
  • Bobby pins
  • Elastic Band
  • Fancy Hair tie


  • Start by combing your girl’s hair with a wide tooth comb to remove any knots.
  • Part her hair towards one side. Then leaving just a hint of the parting, comb all the hair backwards.
  • Take a section of hair from over her ear and divide it into three equal parts.
  • Take another section from over the other ear and separate it from the rest of the hair.
  • Create the braid by bringing the outside strand UNDER the middle strand.
  • Once you are done with bringing each of the outer strands ONCE under the middle one, you will need to add hair.

  • To do so, pick some more hair the same side as the outer strand, add to it and again take it under the middle one.
  • Repeat on the other side and for the rest of the hair until you reach the nape of the neck.
  • Tie the braid with an elastic band here, to avoid it getting loose.
  • Take the separated section from the other ear and bring over the inside out French braid, while twisting it.
  • If the need be, hold the twists in place with bobby pins.
  • Holding both the braid and the twisted section together, tie with the fancy hair tie on the side.

Optional: If the hair texture is not wavy below the pony tail, you wrap a few sections over a curling rod loosely to create waves.


  • Braids look best when the hair are clean and washed.
  • If you do not have a fancy hair tie, use a regular one. Use pearl hair pins or artificial flowers in the braid for decoration.
  • Do not worry about fly-aways in this hairdo, as the look desired is not very neat.
