Twisted braided hairstyle
To do such twisted French braid you’ll need three strands, but they are plaited not upward, but underneath.
Interesting to know. There are lots of options for braiding. You can plait the hair taking 4 or 5 strands for a more voluminous and beautiful braid.
Hairstyles for long hair
If the girl has long hair, you can easily experiment with a wide variety of hairstyles. The simplest are two braids, fishbone braid or circle braids that frame the head.
If you add ribbons or bows to these hairstyles, they’ll look even more beautiful.
Tip! You can plait the ribbon into your hair as a separate strand. If you want to make your hairstyle more voluminous, thread the ribbon into the ready-made twisted French braid and pull it out a little at the sides, making bowknots.
Remember about loose curls with braiding. Some of these hairstyles are quite simple to do:
Tip. It’s not necessary to use hair curlers or a curling iron to curl hair. Just take wet napkins and dry them a bit. Then, curl small strands on each such napkin and tie the napkin tightly into a knot. Leave it overnight. In the morning, loosen your hair and simply shape it with your fingers. You’ll get doll strands.
Pigtails and buns are always festive. Besides, such hairstyles keep the hair away from eyes so that it won’t bother the schoolgirl.
Don’t forget about bows and ribbons, that can be added to such hairstyles.
You can experiment and choose any option here. The side twisted French braid looks good with a ribbon run through it or with a bow added to it. You can also create a braid using elastic bands. Or you can decide in favour of a regular braid with bowknots and hairpins.
The fishtail looks gorgeous on long hair. You can make it a little fluffier with your fingers for a voluminous effect.
You can also plait hair in a circle braid around your head, making a kind of diadem. It looks very fashionable and original.
Two braids also look wonderful!
If you aren’t a fan of braiding, pay attention to the ponytails. These are the simplest and most relevant hairstyles for September 1. Don’t forget to complement them with bows or hairpins.
