Spring Braids

Whether you are studying for a big test or working on your soccer skills, your thick hair always seems to be getting in your face. Do these scenarios sound familiar, chicas? Instead of slicking your hair back in a head ache inducing ponytail, try out some of these braided hairstyles just in time for spring. They are all heat free, quick and abuelita approved.

For all of these looks you will only need bobby pins, hair elastics and an optional styling product to hold your hairstyle all day.

Hanging Low

  1. Start by sectioning off a section of hair from the front of your head. If you have bangs, you can leave them out for this look.
  2. Tie the rest of your hair in a side ponytail.
  3. Begin braiding the sectioned piece of hair towards the back of your head.
  4. Bobby pin the braid behind your head.
  5. Twist your side ponytail into a bun and hold with hair elastic.
  6. Spray your hairstyle with finishing spray to hold the look throughout the day (ex. hairspray or spray gel).

 

Best of Both Worlds


 

  1. Start at the top of your head and begin French braiding your hair.
  2. Stop braiding when you get to the back part of your head.
  3. Combine the rest of your hair with the braid and tie it into a ponytail with a hair elastic.
  4. Spray your style for an extra hold.

  3. Repeat step one on the opposite side of your head.
  4. Secure the second braid by crisscrossing the bobby pins behind your head.
  5. Tuck in any extra hair under the braids.
  6. Spray your style for an extra hold.
