6 Easy and Cute Braided Hairstyles to Try

We at WeGoRo chose some of the best braid tutorials that anyone can master. The following hairstyles will save you time on busy mornings before work, as they are perfect for both an everyday look and for special occasions.

1. Braid-Wrapped Ponytail

  • Brush your hair free from any tangles.
  • Gather the top portion of your hair, and secure it with a ponytail holder.
  • Put the bottom portion of your hair into a simple braid.
  • Wrap the braid over the ponytail holder. You can embellish your hairstyle with a decorative pin.

2. Waterfall Braid

  • Comb your hair, and make sure it’s not tangled.
  • Part your hair on its natural side.
  • Take a hair section, and part it into three equal sections.
  • French braid for 2-3 inches (5-7cm), and then drop the top section of your braid.
  • Pick up a new hair section from directly behind where you’ve dropped the top one. Use it as the new section of your French braid.
  • Repeat the previous two steps until you reach the other side of your head. Then secure the end of the braid with a transparent rubber band or bobby pins.

3. The Braided Bun

  • Brush your hair free from any tangles.
  • Separate it into three sections with the middle being the largest one.
  • French braid the middle section, and secure it with pins in a circle.
  • Then French braid the other two hair sections and wrap around the middle braid in opposite directions from each other.
  • Secure with bobby pins.

4. Elegant Updo

  • Comb your hair, and make sure it’s not tangled.
  • Gather all your hair into a ponytail on the top of your head.
  • Take a hair section, and drop it off to the side.
  • Create a ballerina bun on top.
  • Braid the section that you left out.
  • Wrap the braid around the bun, and secure with bobby pins.

5. Dutch Braid Updo

  • Brush your hair.
  • Take a piece of hair from the top of your head, and split it into three strands.
  • Cross the right strand under the center strand, and then cross the left strand under the center. Repeat.
  • Take a section from the side to add to one of the strands, and continue on the next side. Pick up small hair strands every time you cross pieces under the center strand.
  • Tie off the end of your braid with an elastic band.
  • Twist the bottom of the braid around itself into a bun, and pin into place.

No more curling and straightening your hair! Not only will these hairstyles keep your hair neat, they will also protect it from sunlight, pollution, and other harmful agents. Find the braided style that’s perfect for your hair, and enjoy your new look!

6. Reverse Fishtail Braid

  • Pick up two strands of hair high up on the crown of the head.
  • Take a piece of hair from the left strand, cross it under, and join it with the right strand.
  • Take a piece of hair from the right strand, cross it under, and join it with the left strand.
  • Take a piece of hair from the left strand again, cross it under, and join it with the right one.
  • Now take a piece of hair from the left, next to where you originally picked up hair; also cross this piece of hair under, and join it with the right side.
  • Do the same on the other side.
  • Continue like this all the way down until you have incorporated all the hair. Then make an inverted fishtail braid without adding hair. Remember to continue to cross the strands of hair under and join the opposite side.
  • Pull on the braid to add volume.
