"The Princess" is growing up. Yes, it is sad.. but true! She has been doing her own hair most mornings lately and we wanted to share a few of the styles she has been wearing and doing herself. Over the next little while, we will be adding several of her quick and easy "DIY beginner hairstyles" into the mix on our blog. These styles will be great for school mornings, or when you are in a hurry, and for those of you who are starting to do your own hair as well!
We shared a similar hairstyle a couple of years ago (which you may remember) called the "braid in a braid." The Princess wears that original braid quite often as well. I think it was actually one of the very first hairstyles she did on her own! One day for school she decided to add a rope braid in place of the regular braid and I think it came out really cute! This style would be darling using a fishtail braid as well, but keep in mind, fishtails do take a little bit longer to create.
Although this hairstyle is very simple and quick, it still looks quite interesting and different. So much more fun than a regular side braid. ;)
Supplies needed to recreate this braid:
- 1 temporary hair tie or clip for the rope braid
- 1 medium size elastic or hair tie for the main braid
- hairspray, gel, pomade, etc. to help control flyaways (optional)
