Cute Braided Ponytail

I’m all about an easy braided hairstyle. Ever since Victoria’s hair was long enough to braid, I’ve braided it. This cute braided ponytail is one that I’ve done on Victoria’s hair over a dozen times because it’s so easy to do and so pretty, too.

When it comes to coming up with cute braided ponytail hairstyles, it’s not always easy because there are only really so many that you can do. What I love about this one is that it’s not a complicated braided hairstyle. It’s simple. It’s easy. And you can even do it quickly, too.

For this cute braided ponytail hairstyle, I don’t need to prep the hair too much beforehand. I always use a leave-in conditioner spray in Victoria’s hair before I do any hairstyle just to make it easy to brush, but other than that, there’s nothing else needed for this one.

I promise it’s that kind of easy.

Hair Products To Use Everyday

When it comes to hairstyles for kids, I feel like I could write a book! 🙂 We do hairstyles together almost every single day.

1. I know that it’s not always easy to have Victoria sit still, but a book, a device, or just talking time helps. Sometimes we play a game and that will help keep her still (although if you know my girl, she doesn’t like to sit still!).

2. I love using a leave-in conditioner spray on Victoria’s hair before I start. I just like to make sure there aren’t any tangles before we get going.

3. I love using hair oil, too on Victoria. It makes her hair nice and shiny and smooth to work with. I feel like this has been a huge game-changer for her when it comes to flyaways and keeping it healthy.

4. I love using hair elastics that don’t damage the hair.

I will continue to recommend the products we use and love because I think it’s important to share what people use that works.
