Ribbon Braid Hair Tutorial

This ribbon braid is a favorite of mine to do on Victoria’s hair. It’s simple and easy to pull together, but most importantly, looks super cute when it’s done.

Ribbon Braid

When it comes to a ribbon hairstyle, you first need some good ribbon. My advice is to head to Michaels stores and stock up on some ribbon. I wouldn’t get a wide ribbon, I would stick with a thin ribbon because it will make it easier to loop through the hair. And find colors that you love, it’s always cute to see a pop of color in the hair.

This is the one we just did on her hair the other night and I think it came out so pretty. It’s just a cute style that really does look elegant and chic at the same time.

What I love about this ribbon braid is that you don’t even know how to do a regular braid. I get so many requests for easy hairstyles that don’t require knowing how to do a dutch braid or fishtail braid. Believe me, I get it. It’s not always easy knowing how to do certain braids, so when I find super simple hairstyles – I jump at them. This really is the easiest braid and hairstyle ever and I love that anyone can do it.

Here is the video hair tutorial I posted on Instagram and TikTok about it:

I chose the blue ribbon because I thought it would look pretty in her blonde hair. Not that the color of ribbon matters, but finding one that complements your hair color is a good idea. I love doing this for a school event, just use your school colors as the ribbon. The good news is that you can wear this hairstyle to just about anything. I will say, this will really only work on long hair. I haven’t tried it on short hair, but I have a feeling it might be tough to do.

The finished braid comes out looking almost like a fishtail, but it’s not. I’m telling you, it’s just a simple style that really comes out looking pretty.

If you follow me on Instagram or TikTok, you know I love sharing hair tutorials. It’s funny, not many people knew I loved to play with hair until last year. Ever since I started sharing more and more hair videos over the last two year, I’m asked all the time about my favorite hair products. To be honest with you – there are a ton of hair products that I  just love to the core.

Here are (3) products I can’t “live” without:

HASK Repairing ARGAN OIL 5-in-1 Leave In Conditioner Spray – I just bought this last week and I’m OBSESSED with it. First off – the smell is incredible and it works beautifully. This 5-in-1 Leave-In Conditioner penetrates the hair shaft, gently cleansing while it repairs damage and breakage, leaving even the most rebellious hair frizz-free, silky-soft and super glossy. It’s color safe, gluten free, sulfate free, paraben free.
