Bundled Braids {Video} | Braided Hairstyles

Many of you will recognize this hairstyle as one of the first hairdo’s we ever published, but we never have filmed a video for it.

Since we do receive quite a few requests via email asking for this video, as sometimes photo tutorials are not specific enough, we decided to film this one for you all!

We love how super easy this hairstyle is to do, and how cute it looks on our little girls.  The style still works well on older girls, and moms as well, particularly if you pancake the braids into a more “loose” style.

We promise that you will get compliments on this hairstyle all day long!  {My twins started calling this braided hairstyle “The Pineapple Braid” from the time they were very little, which I also think is cute because the finished hairstyle does look quite a bit like a pineapple!}

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 5 clear elastics, 2 regular
hair bands, and hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 8-10 minutes

Skill Level:  Easy

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin by wetting hair {if desired} with the spray bottle.
  2. Gather all hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck…
  3. Divide the hair in the ponytail into 5 equal sections…
  4. Braid each of the 5 sections separately, using a clear elastic to temporarily hold them {or you can also have your daughter hold them instead}…
  5. Once all 5 sections are braided, grab them together at the base and fold them up towards the ponytail…
  6. Secure the folded braids to the ponytail with a hair band, leaving the ends of the braid loose…
  7. Tease the loose hair ends to your liking.
  8. Add in hairspray or a ribbon/accessory {if desired}.


Happy Hairdoing!
