This half up braided hairstyle is also the perfect kind of hairstyle for Picture Day. I know it can be tough to come up with some cute and pretty hairstyles for Picture Day at school, so I’ve been trying to share as many as I can with you.

I love this one for any occasion. You can dress it up or dress it down. It’s that kind of hairstyle. It’s just a simple and pretty one to do for everyday. I also love how easy and simple it is to do on your hair, too. You know I’m all about the easy! I don’t like over-complicating hairstyles, especially when you’re doing them on your child (sometimes you have a limited amount of sitting still time!).

Steps for creating a braided headband:

1. Part the hair down the middle.

2. Grab a small section on one side and braid it all the way down, add a hair elastic.

3. Repeat right on the other side.

4. Take the braids and cross them.

5. Simple bobby pin them behind the ears. *I use two of them.

Hair Products We Love:

1. I love love love using these hair ties. These are fantastic for keeping the hair from creasing and they don’t damage the hair either.

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.
