Unicorn Braid Tutorial - Hairstyles for Girls

Our two little girls have pretty long hair, so I've been getting my fair share of hair style practicing in! I wanted to share a super fun hair style that we've been doing for the last year or so with you. It's super easy once you get the hang of it and it looks much more complicated than it is. This unicorn braid hairstyle is so fun and only takes about 5 minutes or so tops.

Make sure to watch the video below for a visual on how we get this look. For the unicorn braid hairstyle, I use a fine tooth comb, small elastics, a water bottle, and a little bit of hair spray. Make sure to check out our hair must haves here.

Step 1:

Brush out hair. Part top section of hair into two smaller sections and tie with small elastics.

Step 2:

Part top section into two, then feed 2nd pony tail through first. I have my daughter hold the 2nd section at her face to help.

Step 3

Take the first pony tail that is sticking back from the 2nd parted section and then add to a 3rd pony tail. I combine the 1st pony tail with the third. Then put an elastic around those two pieces.

Step 4

Take your next pony tail and part it in two. Then take the piece that your child was holding and feed it into that pony tail. You'll complete these steps until you are finished. I continue each section until I'm at the nape of their neck, but you can always stop half way through.

Step 5

To finish, I tie off the pony tail. Sometimes, I will either do a fishtail braid or a loop through braid until I'm at the end of the pony tail.

Unicorn Braid Tips

I would definitely watch the video so this will hopefully make more sense! It's hard to explain, but I promise will get so easy with practice. To get a fuller/thicker looking "braid", I pull the sections out a bit until they are a little more fluffy. To finish off, I spray with a little bit of hair spray to keep everything in place.
