    Front Braid

    Front braid is a cute style that can be made with any type of hair. Take 1.5 inch segment of hair starting from one temple that follows the hairline which is opposite the ear. Now brush a major portion of your hair in a loose ponytail to move them away from the segment. Start from the scalp to plait the hair towards the curve of the head and make sure that the braid remains close to the scalp. Once you reach near the ear, secure the braid by making use of an elastic band just behind the ear. Style the rest of the hair as you wish.

    Half Braid

    This type of braid creates a half up and half down look. Take two segments of hair by making one as a top segment and the other as a bottom segment. Leave the bottom segment flowing freely while the top segmented hair should be braided. Now plait the remaining top segment of the hair down the back, allowing them to fall over the open hair. Tie it by making use of an elastic band.

    Piggy Braids

    Piggy braids are similar to pig tail. Segment the hair on two separate sides and a straight part should go all the way towards the middle of the children’s head. Now brush both segments of the hair. Start from the forehead and divide one half of the hair into three parts and then start plaiting. While progressing downwards, add another section of the hair into the plait strand after every turn. Once you reach to the nape of the neck, continue plaiting the hair to the end and then secure them with the help of an elastic tie.
