Six cute and practical hairstyles for your little princess
If your little princess likes to mess around with her hair and invents fantastic hairdos, then this article is for you!
Bright Side is happy to give you 6 hairstyle ideas that’ll make your kid look even more beautiful! First of all, don’t forget to untangle your little one’s hair. Comb it thoroughly from ends to roots, and avoid pulling too hard.
Two reverse braids joined into one
- Separate the hair into two halves, parting it in the middle.
- While working with one half, fixate the other to prevent strands from mingling.
- Split the half you’re working with into three strands and begin making a braid from the base of the forehead to the centre of the nape.
- Put first the right, then the left strand under the central strand — same as when making a simple reverse braid. Continue plaiting, adding hair to the outer strands on the right and on the left.
- When you’ve reached the point where your braid should end, secure it with an invisible hairpin.
- Repeat the same procedures with the other half.
- Join the two braids at the center and decorate them with a bow, like the picture.
- Comb the hair well, brushing all of it back.
- Gather the hair into a ponytail at the top, where you want the finished bun to be located.
- Divide the ponytail into two strands, with the thickness correlation of 9:1
- Tie the thick strand into a ponytail with an elastic holder. Wrap the hair around the holder and fixate the resulting bun.
- Twist the thin strand into a tight rope and wrap it around the bun. Tuck the end of the strand under the elastic holder or secure it with an invisible hairpin.
- Tie a bow at the base of the bun.
Twin herringbone braids
- Separate the hair into two halves, making a straight part down the middle.
- To avoid mixing, tie off the half you’re not currently working with.
- Before starting to braid a strand, divide it in two.
- Start braiding at the ears level, rather than the roots level. Take a small strand from the edge of one section and throw it over to the opposite section. And vice versa.
- Continue to take small strands from both sides, shifting each of them over to the opposite side. The thinner the strands, the tidier the finished braid will be. Try to make sure that all the strands are of the same thickness.
- Once you’ve finished braiding, secure the end of the braid with an elastic band.
- Repeat all the previous steps with the other half.
- Divide the hair into four halves by making one vertical parting through the center of the head and one horizontal parting at ears level.
- Fixate one half to prevent it from getting in the way. Start plaiting a diagonal French braid from the forehead to the nape, in such a way that it’d cross the center.
- Braid the remaining half in a similar way, making sure that the second braid crosses and overlaps the first one.
- Secure the braids with elastic bands.
Minnie Mouse bow
- Comb the hair and make sure to brush all of it back.
- Fashion the bulk of the hair into a loop and secure it at the scalp with an elastic band, leaving one strand to hang loose. Separate the loop in two.
- Wrap the loose strand over the middle section of the loop and fasten it at the back with bobby pins.
- Brush the hair back with your fingers.
- Create a loose bun. Make it look simple and spontaneous.
- Add hippie vibes to your little one’s looks by decorating her forehead with a bow (as shown in the photo). This hairstyle is an ideal option if you don’t have a lot of time, or if it’s really hot outside.
