How to Do Double Braids

Double braids are a cute take on the traditional braid, looking especially gorgeous on little girls.

They are a great way for hair that is a little bit shorter, or has short layers, to be tied off the face and keep the creepy crawlies away!

This hair style is also fantastic if your child’s hair is a little dirty or oily, the residue actually helps keep the braids in and makes the hair easier to style.

Step 1

Part your daughters hair through the middle and section off one side with a tie. This keeps you from picking up from the wrong side when braiding theother and keeps a straight part in the centre.

Step 2.

Using the technique shown in Basic Hair Braiding, braid one side ofthe hair and finish with a hair tie.
