Coronet Braids With A "Hair Bow"

This hairstyle works best for girls with long hair. Do two French braids on either side then secure with a hair tie. Next, make a bow by looping the remaining hair and "tying" it in the middle with a strand of hair. Secure everything with a hair tie and hide it by covering it with hair.

Instead of making a traditional French braid which goes down the middle, create this super easy hairstyle by making a French braid from the side. Finish off the cute look with a fun hair tie or bow.

This elegant hairdo is actually very simple. This style, which works best for long hair, can be achieved by creating three regular or fishtail braids and wrapping them around your daughter's head. Pin and secure. A few messy pieces make this updo extra pretty.
