Cute and easy braids for girls.

Updated on February 5, 2016

First of all I'd like to mention that these braids are not suitable if you will be doing lots of running ( the waterfall braid in particular) I would say that the Dutch braid and French braid would be better if you're running around because it will sit tight on your head but as you might know, the Waterfall braid is quite loose and can easily come out if you are doing lots of running.

The Dutch braid: So, let's get started on the Dutch braid. The Dutch braid is basically the inverted French braid so instead of braiding the strands over each other you are braiding the strands under each other. There are many ways of doing the Dutch braid. You can do it along the back of your head, into two braids at each side, into a headband, into a crown etc.

1. Brush out any knots in your hair.

2. Part your hair depending on which way you are doing your Dutch braid.

3. Grab a small piece of hair where your bangs are.

4. Separate into three strands.

5. Place your front strand ( the strand closest to your face) under the middle strand and then place your back strand ( the strand furthest away from your face) under the middle strand.

6. Then, grab a piece of hair and then join it to your front strand and place it under your middle strand.

7. Grab another piece of hair and join it to your back strand and place it under the middle strand.

8. Continue this until you have no more pieces to join on to.

9. Then finish off braiding regularly and secure with a elastic band.

10. Slightly pull on the braid to give it more volume (optional)

11. Enjoy your Dutch braid!!

French braid:

1. Brush out any knots in your hair.

2. Part your hair depending on which way you are doing your French braid.

3. Grab a piece of hair where your bangs are.

4. Separate into three strands/

5. Place your front strand over the middle strand and your back strand over the middle strand.

6. Grab a piece of hair and join it to the front strand and place it over the middle strand.

7. Grab another piece of hair and join it to the back strand and place it over the middle strand.

8. Continue this to the bottom of the hair when you don't have anymore pieces of hair to join on to.

9. Braid regularly and secure with an elastic band.

10. Enjoy your French braid!!

Waterfall braid: The Waterfall braid is a modified version of a French braid. What makes the Waterfall braid different is that you only join pieces of hair and place them over the middle strand on one side and on the other side instead of joining and placing over as you would in a normal French braid you just let the hair go. This is what makes that waterfall look. Then you pick hair from behind the piece of hair that you just let go of and place it into the middle which makes the middle strand. I'm trying to explain this as best as I can. It's a bit hard without any visual explaination.:) ( I'll try and put some photos up) I think that this braid looks good on straight hair but your can also do it on wavy hair. The Waterfall braid is suitable for formal occasions, for school and work. I wouldn't recommend wearing this braid if you are planning on doing any running and physical activities.

1. Brush out any knots.

2. Part your hair.

3. Grab a piece of hair where your bangs are.

4. Separate into three strands.

5. Place your back strand ( the strand furthest away from your face over the middle strand and your front strand ( closest to the face) over the middle strand.

6. Then grab a piece of hair and join it to your back strand and place it over the middle strand.

7. Then with your front strand, you would normally grab piece of hair and place it over, DON'T DO THAT. Just let go of the strand.

8. Pick a piece of hair the same size as the previous strand and place it into the middle. This becomes your middle strand.

9. Continue doing that as far as you want. You could stop halfway and secure with an elastic band or you could continue braiding until you reach your other ear.

10. Either way you go, secure with an elastic band or braid down and then secure with an elastic band.

11. Enjoy your Waterfall braid!!
