Lesson 50: Braided Braids

This is a simple technique that gives a complicated look.  Belle wanted an Easter egg, so I started with a zigzag sort of shape, though the finished style looks very little like an Easter egg.  To start, comb out a triangular section at the forehead and braid it out as far as you can.  Add a clear elastic.  Repeat with triangle sections at the side of the head.  Put everything into a ponytail.  Divide the tail into three sections, making sure there is a braid in each.  Braid the tail.  You will need to adjust the small braids with each turn to be sure they are visible.  Add a hairband at the end.  Remove the elastics if they are visible.


  1. AHHHHHH!!!!! That looks kinda like the tangled braid thingy!!!!!!!!!! BOO YA GRANDMA!!!!!!! Do you know how to do the tangled braid?!?! If you do, you should do a hair tutorial on it!!!:)

  2. Larla, I am working on it! If you look at my April Fool's day post, you'll see the picture of my last try. I can't figure out how to get the braid to lay flat and how to make it all nice and neat, but I will get this! And I will post it for you.

  3. I have never seen a braid like that before, I love how you can see all of the little one's on top.
