French Braid

A french braid is easy to make, actually it is really really easy. To start a french braid, gather a small section of hair in the middle of your head, don't take any hair from the sides. Start the braid by splitting the section of hair into three little section. When you do a french braid, it will be like a normal three strand braid. Except when you cross the strand over the middle strand, take a small section from the side and add it to your section. Continue this throughout the braid until you get to the end. At the end braid it normally.
You can easily turn a french braid into an 'Elsa braid' from the movie 'Frozen'. When you are at the end of the braid instead of taking the strands over the middle, take them under the middle. Then bring the end of the braid in front of your shoulder. I hope this is helpful, I do enjoy comments.

Hair bow

This hairstyle is a bow that you make  with your hair. First, you take a small section of hair on the back of your head, like you would if you were going to make a half up~do. Use a rubber band to tie it and the second or third time you wrap it around, don't pull it all the way through, so it looks like a little bun. Separate the little bun so it makes your bow. Use bobby pins to hold the sides of the bow on your head. Take some of the little section of hair that is hanging down from the bow. In the middle of the bow make a little space to pull the little section of hair through. Pull it so that it is tight and secure, put a bobby pin in the little space that you pulled the hair through, so that it stays tight and secure.
In my bow I put four pearl clips or pins in the middle. I added the clips to embellish the hairstyle. It looks good without the clips, highlights look fantastic with this bow.

Two strand braid

This hairstyle is a two strand braid. A two strand braid isn't really like a braid, it's more like weaving your hair. Although it is a little hard at first, but after a few tries you'll be a pro. I personally get really excited whenever i concur a new hairstyle. To start this 'braid' make your hair into two strands, one on top and one on bottom. For this hairstyle you're going to need rubber bands, lots of them. Take the top strand and wrap a rubber band (hair rubber bands of course) around it near the top leaving some space. Separate the hair above the rubber band, making a space to pull the bottom strand through. Now that the bottom stand is on top wrap a rubber band around that strand and make a space. Pull the strand on the bottom through the space, so now its on top. keep repeating this process until you have completed the whole braid. secure the braid at the end with a rubber band or regular hair tie, whatever you prefer.
I did my two strand braid on the side of my head, you can do it on the back but it would be extremely hard. Always try new things, don't give up until you get it, I got it. I practiced on my mom before myself.. try it on someone else first.

Waterfall braid

This hairstyle is a waterfall braid. Making a waterfall braid can appear to be difficult but with a little practice, it is really easy. In my waterfall braid I put pearl clips in it so it would be more elegant. I really like the way the pearls make it look, they are like little twinkly lights. To start the braid you take the hair on the side of your head, on which ever side you want to start it on. I started my braid on the left side. Take a small to medium size amount of hair, it really depends on how you want it to look. Divide the hair into three sections. Take the to strand over the middle and then the bottom over the new middle which was the top, now the bottom is in the middle. After you did that, which is normal braiding, but you only do that once. Now, when you go to take the top over the middle, grab some of the extra hair and add it to the strand before you take it over the middle. Keep repeating this throughout the braid. But you also have to drop the  strand that becomes the bottom strand and grab a new section of hair to take over the middle, repeat this process along with taking new hair with the top strand. You can take the braid all of the way around your head or just stop in the middle. When you want to stop just do a normal three strand braid all the way down and secure it with a rubber band. I took my braid all of the way around because, i wanted to add the pearls.

Messy bun with Pearl clips

This hairstyle is a messy bun with pearl clips for glam. It is very easy to make this hairstyle. You take all of your hair and twist it lightly, not too tightly. If you wrap it too tightly then the bun will be too neat. Wrap the loosely twisted hair around in a messy bun. Hold the bun in place by wrapping a rubber band or hair elastic around the base. You can add accessories like these clips if you want.
This hairstyle can be worn on any occasion. Its simple but cute with any trendy outfit.
