1. French Braid

How to Do it?

  1. Brush through the hair well.
  2. Gather all the hair from the top of the head and divide it into three sections.
  3. Take the hair from one side over the middle section, and then repeat the same with the other side. Pull the sections tight, so they do not come undone.
  4. Add hair to the sections before you repeat the crossover motions each time.

Suitable Face Structure

French braids suit almost every face shape.

Occasions

Casual outings, school, sports activities

Required Products

Elastic band.

Expert Advice

When adding hair to the sections, make sure to add equal amounts so that the braid doesn’t become lopsided. This is one of the most common braided hairstyles there is.

2. French Crown Braid

How to Do it?

  1. Spray all around the hairline and comb through.
  2. Form a side parting.
  3. Use the tail of the comb to separate a thin slice of hair. Split this into three sections.
  4. Take the left piece over the middle piece and do the same with the one on the right.
  5. Add a little more hair to the left section and then twist it over the middle section. Do the same with the right section.
  6. Once you use up all the hair in the parting, use the end of the parting on the scalp as a centre point. Continue in this manner around the head.
  7. Once you run out of hair to add entirely, continue the braid normally, twisting the right and left sections over the middle one in turns, taking the braid over the head in the fashion of a headband.
  8. Measure a point in the tail of the braid that is symmetrical to the point the braid began. This is where you should tie the elastic.
  9. Using a topsy tail, weave the remaining hair through the stitches in the braid until all the hair is weaved into the stitches.

Suitable Face Structure

Oval and heart-shaped faces will pull this look off best.

Occasions

Weddings, festivals and special occasions.

Required Products

  1. Detangling spray
  2. Comb
  3. Elastic band
  4. Topsy Tail

Expert Advice

After you tie the elastic band, do not continue to braid the hair. When you weave unbraided hair into the stitches, it helps to blend it into the original braid, making it difficult to see where it ends.

3. Hair Bow

How to Do it?

  1. Brush your girl’s hair well and then start pulling it up into a high ponytail.
  2. Bring the hair through the elastic but don’t pull it all the way through. It will form a loop. Make sure the loop is behind, and the loose hair is falling forward, onto the forehead.
  3. Gather the loose hair, and after splitting the loop into two, fold the loose hair over the middle to make the centre of the bow.
  4. Secure any loose hairs at the back of the bow with bobby pins and spray the hair with hairspray to lock everything in place.

Suitable Face Structur

This hairstyle suits round faces the best, but those with heart or diamond-shaped faces can pull this off too.

Occasions

Parties, picnics or any daytime outing.

Required Products

Brush, bobby pins, hairspray.

Expert Advice

Make sure the hair at the top of the head is brushed out until it is completely flat to make them look neater and the bow stands out more.

4. Curly Bob

How to Do it?

  1. Wash your girl’s hair and then gently begin to dry it by scrunching the water so that it absorbs into the towel.
  2. Once you get most of the water out this way, you can either use hairspray, mousse or a gel to help keep the shape of the curls before drying the hair, preferably with a diffuser; otherwise just use your fingers.

Suitable Face Structure

Oval, square and diamond-shaped faces will suit this look best.

Occasions

Casual, everyday look.

Required Products

Shampoo, towel, hairspray/mousse/gel, blow-drier (preferably with a diffuser for convenience)

Expert Advice

This type of style suits all sorts of curls, ranging from wavy curls to tight ringlets and is one of the most simple hairstyles for little girls with short hair.

5. Waterfall Twist

How to Do it?

  1. Take a piece of hair from above the ear and divide it into two halves.
  2. Twist the hair one over the other, moving horizontally.
  3. Take another chunk of hair that falls downwards and places it in between the two twisting chunks, forming a twist around it. The “waterfall” chunks should continue to cascade downwards in noticeable locks.
  4. Continue to do this around the head to reach above the other ear.
  5. Once you reach the other ear, push a bobby pin into the twist to hold everything in place.
  6. Tuck the remaining hair downwards so that it blends into the rest of the hair.

Suitable Face Structure

Heart, oval and diamond-shaped faces will look good with this style.

Occasions

Daytime outings and parties.

Required Products

Bobby pins.

Expert Advice

All this hairstyle really needs is properly brushed hair, but if you want to make it look fancier for a party, you can always curl the waterfall chunks and then very gently brush out the ends. You can do the same for a few other chunks of hair here and there to give it a more wavy appearance.
