Hairstyle Video: Lauren Conrad Front French Braid

Okay, now this one is an easy one and everyone is seeing this hairstyle made famous by Lauren Conrad from “The Hills” on MTV. (I even saw a few variations the other night on Dancing with the Stars.)

Lauren Conrad French Front

Items Needed: One rubber band (preferably small and clear), and a couple bobby pins.

Time Requirement: 5 minutes.

Skill Level: Easy

There are likely 101 ways to do this braid… pinching off with a rubber band just after the French right above the ear, braiding through as I have done (with a bobby pin tuck), tucking the braid behind the ear, etc. It all is a matter of preference and hair length. Try each out and see which works best for you.

Many of you may think that this was too simple or common of a hairdo to post here, however this was a special request from Samantha (a fan of the site who is only 12 years old). Sam, this one’s for you!

Enjoy, and Happy Hairdoing!

    What is the metal circle that you have your hair rubber bands on? It looks like a mess-free solution to keeping track of hair rubber bands.

      It is a band holder from Goody. Not sure what it is called… it came with a package of hairbands that I bought several years ago. I cannot find them anymore, so I wrote Goody to ask where they can be purchased. Once I hear back, I will let you know. Thanks for writing!

    Hi, i love the hairstyles you create for girl and i’m a 14 year-old girl myself, i find that this is one of the most simplest and quickest hairstyles you have created! it’s very beautiful too! I also find that i can’t seem to do the french braid on myself, because i have trouble looking and my sense of hand coordination…i braid really slow, kind of messy, and not really organized…can u make a video to help guide me??? please, my world revolves around cute fast hairstyles! -Thanks!

  • Alexxis

    Thank you so much for this! i have wondered how to do it for so long!

    Mirelli it does tangle my hair and my hair is to my shoulders. It also tangles my sisters hair. Hers its to her chest. So I think really it tangles all hair. :)

  • Karol

    Hey, i’m Brazilian and i’ve found your wonderful website today, i really love it! But, when i saw these Lauren Conrad pic, I thought this was a relief braid (i’m sorry if this is wrong, my english is just for fun, so…), u know what i’m saying… the hair is braided through out, the entire braid is made inside out, to make a relief (i really think that ‘relief’ isn’t the word i want, i hope u understand it). Thanks for those great hairstyles and i hope u continue doing that! :)
