Here are a few interesting ways to twist that braid.

Braid hairstyles for girls:

Sonam Kapoor rocks the cute meets chic meets formal look in this braided style.

  • Comb out hair to remove all tangles
  • Straighten with a straightening rod
  • Part hair at the side or pull back
  • Taking a strand thick enough to braid, take hair from one side of the hair and braid
  • This will be woven much like a French braid but small sections of hair from the crown area will be added as the braid advances
  • Will work best with medium to long hair

2. Casual Braids With Open Hair:
