Braids have been very popular this whole year and there is no sign that it’s going to leave the fashion world soon. Sported by celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Uma Thurman and Miley Cyrus, they are very popular this fall too! And why not?
Braids are versatile and with practice takes very little time to achieve the perfect look for any occasion. Braids come in many shapes and sizes and there are innumerable hairstyles you can experiment with. The most well known Braid styles are Pigtail braid, French braid, Dutch braid, Waterfall braid, Braids with multiple strands and many more.
Braid Styles For Kids
Hair braids styles look equally beautiful on kids too. So if your girl has medium to long tresses, you can try out the following Braids.
Style 1: Normal Braids with Three strands for kids
This is the most basic three strand braid style for kids which our mothers and grand-mothers used to sport. They may seem boring but add some cute accessories and turn it into that oh-so-chic hairstyle. Looks great for school.
Style 2: French braids & Dutch braids for kids
These braids are a bit hard at first and you may need help while doing this for some time. Once you learn how to do it, it becomes easy though. The Dutch braid is also called the reverse braid. So once you get a hold of these two braids then you can experiment with the looks and develop new looks all by yourself. To make these braids, part the hair in three strands and take a section of hair from each of the side and braid. This braiding process is reversed in Dutch braid.
Styel 3: Lace Braids Hairstyles for kids
This is a braid which is similar to French braids, but unlike the French, the braid is done on only one side. This braiding style is very largely used to make a headband style, which looks very pretty on kids and also keeps hair from falling on the face. So if you want to add some nice texture for your daughter’s hair without braiding too much, this is the perfect choice.
Style 4: Bubble braid for kids
These kinds of braids look great for costume parties. The hairstyle is very easy and you need very little braiding skills. So when you don’t have too many accessories with you, try this braid. It only needs some rubber bands. Add some flowers to achieve that magical princess feeling.
Style 5: Braids with Multiple Strand for kids
If you think that braids look best with three strands, then think again. The braids with multiple strands create a mermaid inspired hairstyle which looks superb on kids. But these braiding styles need practice and patience.
Style 6: Waterfall Braiding for kids
This is a more complex braid and requires practice. But this look would be perfect for kids! The finished look imitates a waterfall. The look is very fairy tale like and goes well for occasions like parties.
Style 7: Rope braid hair styling for kids
When you are in a hurry but want to dress your girl’s hair, then the easiest braid one can achieve with very less skills and time is the rope braid . For doing this braid, all you need to do is part the hair in two sections and twist each section clockwise. After you are done twisting, just wrap the two sections anti-clockwise. Do the wraps tightly and secure with elastic. Add accessories to oomph up the style. Very easy to carry and achieve that even your daughter can do this easily all by herself!
Style 8: Fishtail braiding for kids
This is also a trend which has been sported by many celebrities like Blake lively, Eva Longoria and more. These look super cute on long or medium length hair. All you need to do is part the hair in two strands; pick a small section from one side and cross it tightly to the other side. Repeat on other side. For a clean fishtail, make the sections neat and same sized, for a more casual look, make the sections uneven. The main plus point is that you get a look which seems very tough and complicated but is very simple to achieve.
Style 9: Braid within a braid for kids
Add twist to your braids by adding some mini braids to the strands of your braid. To do this, part your hair like you would in three strands, then take a small section from one strand and braid it, secure it and then add this to the strand and braid as you normally would. It looks very nice and adds texture to the braids.
Style 10: Crown braid style for kids
These crown braids are created using Dutch braiding style and keep hair from falling onto your face. These look really good on kids and are easy for them to carry. Cute accessories like flowers and sequins may be added to make it more beautiful.
Style 11: Swiss braids hairstyle for kids
Swiss braid is an easy option for headband braiding styles as this style only requires you to know how to do the regular braid. To incorporate this style all you need is to part the hair from the middle and make two strands. Take each strand and braid it. After you get two braids on each side, place one as a band on the top of the head and then place the other one over the previous one and tuck the elastic and the remaining hair below the braids. Secure with bobby pins so that no extra hair or bands are visible. This hairstyle can be done in 5 minutes and looks great if your daughter has long tresses.
Style 12: Princess hairstyle
Kids love princesses and what better a way to make your little one the center of attraction than making her a princess too. Styles inspired by Rapunzel, Cinderella and many more Disney characters are very popular with kids. These hairstyles for kids with braids look very nice with children aged 12 years or less. You can create braids to resemble cat ears or make bows out of your daughter’s hair. Creativity is the key for these hairstyles and don’t forget some beautiful princess accessories to add more drama to the hairstyle.
Accessories play a part!
Braids are very dull without the right accessories. Do your planning well and stock up on cute accessories. Flower accessories and cute bobby pins look really well with kids hairstyles. They add colour to the hair and also keep your hairstyle in place.
Remember, braids are very versatile and there is a braid for every occasion. Hair braids for kids are just perfect! Experiment and let us know the results.
