It’s also a hairstyle that you can do for a special occasion, not just on your birthday. But – and here’s the best part, it’s also amazing for school and just an everyday look. I just absolutely love this one and I’m excited to share it with you all!

Hair Tutorial for Pretty Braid

For this hairstyle you do need to have medium to long hair. It’s not easy to do on shorter hair because you need to make sure the braid is long enough to fold into the side ponytail. If you have hair extensions, this is a great one for you!

1. Start by creating a side braid.

2. Take the rest of the hair and create a side ponytail.

3. Fold the braid into the side ponytail.

4. Take the tail of the braid and wrap it around the base of the ponytail.

As you can see, this is a cute one and just comes out looking so pretty! It’s a great one for birthdays because it’s a special kind of hairstyle. You can add some ribbons and bows to make it extra special.

Hair Products for this Hairstyle

Here are the hair products I used for this particular birthday hairstyle idea. Feel free to ask me any questions you have when it comes to hair products that we love and use.

Hair Elastics

These are the Teenitor hair elastics I’ve been using lately. I was recommended to use them and couldn’t wait to give them a try. Victoria’s hair is on the thicker side, so I need to make sure I have hair elastics that will hold the hair and be extra durable. I also want to make sure the hair elastics won’t damage or crease the hair.

best hair elastics

  • Strong and stretchy: The elastics are not so thin that they break when you try to stretch, but they are not so thick that you can’t stretch them properly. They have stayed in very fine, soft hair through days of gardening. Also, they slide off the braids when grabbed and pull off clean. No rolling and catching the hair to make knots.
  • Great deal: This is a great deal on 2000 pieces clear rubber elastic hair bands, enough for braiding different hairstyles. You can keep a couple dozen in your purse, another couple dozen in your gym bag, some in your car…you get the idea. Any time you realize you need a hair tie, you’ll have a stash.

The best part is that you get 2000 for under $7!

Hair Styling Cream

It’s the one question I get asked the most lately, and I love it. It’s important to make sure you prep the hair before you create a hairstyle. I love to use hair styling cream because I know it will help to keep the hair smooth and shiny.

I prefer using Dae Hair Styling Cream.
