Teach a child from childhood
The earlier you taught your child to braid, the more he will understand the need for this. As soon as the girl's first hair appears, you need to gradually accustom her to hairstyles: put on rubber bands and hairpins. If your daughter rips them off, put them on again later. These will be her very first hairstyles. The baby will get used to it and will no longer resist braiding.
After creating the first ponytails and practicing weaving on yourself, move on to the child. You should choose the right moment when the girl is involved in a game or watching a cartoon, you can also distract attention with the help of songs or fairy tales.
Create motivation for the girl: tell how beautiful she will become with fashionable pigtails, show examples from cartoons where the main characters have their hair styled. Thus, you will prove to your child that braids are a great hairstyle option. You can try braiding the first braids in the bathroom while the baby is bathing, especially since wet strands are more manageable.
Facilitate the process of weaving
Choose a wooden comb with a long tail for better and painless combing. The tree does not electrify the hair, and this simplifies the process of creating braids. A spray bottle of water will help to weave them more accurately, but remember to monitor the temperature of the water so that the child does not experience discomfort. Fix your hair with special accessories: elastic bands, hair clips, invisible hairpins, hairpins, hair hoops, tiaras and more.
Main types of baby braids
Classic braid: divide the hair into three strands, wind the rightmost strand in the center between the middle and left, then the left strand between the resulting two strands. Further, again we transfer the right strand between the remaining two, and so on until the end of the braid. We fix the end with an elastic band. If you loosen the strands, the braid will be more voluminous, a long pigtail can be folded into a wreath on the head and fixed with invisibility and hairpins.
The spike resembles the weaving of a classic braid, only not all hair is taken, but only the upper strands. Weave a standard braid, gradually adding curls from the rest of the hair. To make the braid even and neat, we do it strictly alternately from right to left. We fix our spikelet either on the back of the head, or we continue to weave further.
French braid: create a horizontal parting and divide the hair into two equal parts. Weave the front zone like a classic braid, gradually adding hair from opposite sides and laying it over the central one. Thus, the right strand is first brought into the center, then the hair on the left is added to it and vice versa.
Pigtails in men's style
If for women a braid on long hair is everyday and commonplace, then for men it is a unique style. Men's fashionable hairstyle with a pigtail is not an everyday occurrence, but a rare occasion. For a more outrageous look, you can make two braids that are woven either from the back of the head or higher and a classic spikelet comes out. A fishtail for men is the perfect weaving, because the braid turns outtextured, masculine and keeps hair neat and tidy.
The main advantage of fashionable braids is that they do not require special care or styling. The only thing that needs to be done regularly is to wash your hair. The lack of styling, chemical fixatives is a huge plus.
