How To Make French Braid Pigtails, With Twist Accents
FYI, we actually filmed this cute braided hairstyle over the summer (notice her fun sun dress/swimsuit cover up.) We were headed to the lake the day we did this one. Sadly we won't we seeing much warm weather (or the lake) for awhile around here. Fall/Winter is now upon us!
But, whatever the season, these criss cross rope braid accents are a fun way to spice up some plain old classic French braid pigtails.
As long as you know how to French braid, this style is not difficult and actually does not take up much more time than standard French braid pigtails. It really is a quick and easy hairstyle. We choose rope braids (or twist braids) for our braided accents. Of course, you can do any type of braid you want. This style can also be done with Dutch braid pigtails (instead of French braids if you prefer.) As shown in our video tutorial below, there are also several different designs you can make with the accent braids (depending on the length of hair you are working with.)
- 4 small hair elastics
- Finishing hair spray or gel (optional)
