Puffy Braids on the Side - Bang Pull Back (9)

This style is obviously not rocket science, but it’s a great one if your daughter is growing out her bangs or has a lot of shorter “baby” hairs up front.  It’s also great if you want most of the hair down but don’t want it falling in your daughter’s face.  And of course, the best part is it’s quick & easy and can be done on an 8 year old right down to your baby or toddler who doesn’t have much hair.   Despite the simplicity of it, here is our step-by-step.

Step 1 – Make a side part

Depending on how many sections you want parted out on top will determine how far you should part back on the top of the head.  We made our side part on the left.

 Step 2 – Make a small ponytail

Part out a narrow rectangular section of hair.  We did not part clear down to the ear.  We just sectioned out a small  piece on the top of her head.  Secure with a rubber band to make a small ponytail.

 Step 3 – Repeat step 2 & combine

Add the first ponytail into this second one and secure with another rubber band.

Step 4 – Divide off 2 more sections as shown above

Often we just make 3 sections, but she wanted the rubber bands to start and end with red and that they were the same colors as were in her dress!

We love styles like this because they can be for a casual day at school, or add curls for a bit fancier look and it’s great for church too!

    So pretty! I did something very similar on my 10 yr old for Christmas Eve. I used a topsytail on each one before I added it to the next, and we put a big fancy Christmas bow on the last one :D

    Nice! This style is exactly what is needed for my 6 yr old. We are growing her bangs out – but keeping hair out of her eyes is challenge..

    I’ve used some of these on my girls but I always have problems with the rubber bands breaking their hair. Especially on my six year old. Any suggestions?
