Double-Braid into Twisty Bun | Easter Hairstyles

March 29, 2009

OK so here is the first of a few Easter hairdo’s. Remember that my goal in hairstyles is to make them fancy and fun, but easy and quick. I just don’t have time to spend an hour doing each girl’s hair! LOL! I gathered this idea from Dancing With The Stars last week.

Hairstyles for Girls

Items Needed: brush, comb, hairspray, 2 rubber bands, and accessories.

Time Requirement: 10-15 minutes.

Skill Level: Medium

Begin by parting hair on the side where the natural part falls…

Double-Braid Twistback #1

Now divide a small section of hair from that part down to the ear…

Double-Braid Twistback #2

French braid this section LOOSELY. You don’t want a super tight braid. We are going for the more natural, soft look. Have your DD hold the braid…

Double-Braid Twistback #3

Now section off another small piece of hair parallel to the first braid. French braid this one too. Have DD hold second braid too…

Now rat the hair on the top of her crown. This just adds a little dimension to the hair and prevents that slicked back look. You don’t have to do this step if you are really opposed to ratting.

Double-Braid Twistback #6

Pull the remaining hair back into a side ponytail and secure with a rubber band. Twist the hair around the ponytail to create a bun and secure with a rubber band around the whole thing.

You will now have this.

Add a ribbon, flowers, or other accessories that match your DD’s cute Easter dress.

Happy Hairdoing!

    I did this do for Easter on Sunday and I got so many compliments! My hair isn’t very long and it is very slick, so it falls out a lot, but this definitely held! Thank you so much!
