She often requests a braid that wraps around the back of her head, so I thought, “Why not switch things up a bit?” This is what we came up with! Hairstyles for kids don’t have to be complicated and braids are a fun way to add some variety. Check out the steps and tips below.

I began this braid on the top with a waterfall braid.

As you add in a new strand you drop one of the strands already in your hand. You continue this process all the way along the top half of the hair. When you are done you will have strands coming down from the braid, like a waterfall.

Pin that braid out of the way and then begin a French braid along the bottom half of the head. Add in the strands from the top braid to connect the two together. I love how it makes them flow into each other!

Continue the French braid along the head and then tie the two braids together. We chose to leave it in a ponytail, but it would also look darling in a bun or braided all the way down. Get creative with it! We love to add bows, headbands, or flowers to dress it up a bit too. Also, they help hide any bumps or oopsies that are bound to happen when trying to style hairstyles for kids!
