Braided Hairstyle Idea for the Holidays

Braided Hairstyle for the Holidays

Victoria loves wearing her hair down, so I’m constantly trying to find and come up with hairstyles that have her hair flowing. I love this one because it’s perfect for a holiday party at school or at home. I also think this is a hairstyle that works for anyone of any age, too!

Before I start any hairstyle with Victoria I make sure her hair is brushed nice and smooth. I love to make sure there aren’t any tangles in it and that the brush goes through like magic! When I have it all set, then I know I can go and create something fun and pretty! 🙂

What makes this one so pretty is the multiple braids. I use three in it, but you can also do this with 2 braids, too. Or – if you want to have some fun, try it with 4 or more! I think it’s just the beauty of seeing braids together that makes it stand out.

  1. Brush hair smooth.
  2. Start with one braid on the top of the head along the side. Don’t make it a huge section, just big enough to make sure you can see the braid clearly.
  3. Grab another section below it and braid that one. Make sure you’re braiding in the same direction, so you can easily pull the braids together at the end.
  4. Grab a third section and repeat with the braid.
  5. Bring the braids together and tie them with a ribbon. I used a black velvet ribbon, but add whatever you want! You could even clip them together with a festive holiday clip!

How cute, right? Again, I just love this one and how it looks at the end. It’s adorable and really works perfectly for any holiday party you have coming up this season!
