Flower braid

First of all, you need to make a half-up ponytail of your child and secure it with an elastic. Separate the hair above the elastic and loop the half pony through the opening that is created. Make a braid of the half-up pony and secure the bottom of the braid with the elastic. Now roll the hairs in a wheel around the upper elastic and secure it with bobby pins. The result of your efforts looks alike to the image below.

Double braids

If you are left with your kid’s hairdo and she is already getting late for school. This hairstyle can be an easy and trendy escape for you. Though its name says ‘double’ but you actually need to put in very less efforts as it involves just two basic steps. Make a standard braid up the notch and add another on the side. On one side of the head, take a small section of hair and make a braid out it and secure it with an elastic. Now, pull your hairs in half and make a braid out of it in the centre and secure it with the elastic. So, here you are done with another cute hairdo. Your efforts will result in a hairstyle similar to what is shown in the images.


Fishtail Braid

Braids look classy as well as work well for school going kids. It’s the best hairdo for summers when open hairs are not the thing you can afford in high temperatures. So, why not bring a twist into your daily braid. Fishtail braid requires a little extra time but the efforts put in are worth it. To begin with, take a small triangle section of hair from the top of your head. Split this section into two equal parts and start crossing the left section over the right.

Now, you need to take a small section of hair from the outer right side and cross it over the left side. Do not twist and hair and maintain the grip over both the sections. Then, take a section of hair from the outer left side and cross it over the right side. Repeat the steps of taking over hair from one side and crossing it over to the other side and secure it with a rubber band at the end of the pony. And you are done with another amazing hairstyle.



Pigtail buns

If your little one is up for some outdoor activities for the day, then this hairstyle is just the one for the day. Separate your hairs from the middle and make two high ponytails. Pull the hairs half way up from below to create two looped buns. Pull hair pieces around the hair tie in a circle and secure it with bobby pins and put on some hair accessories if required. So, here you are done with another hairstyle to amaze your little one.
