braids for girls and braided hairstyle inspiration

Braided hairstyles for girls are so awesomely beautiful that Disney made them even more famous. Elsa’s braid was so popular, it was unreal. Then, many girls tried to copy Rapunzel’s braid to the best of their hair thickness’ ability.

TBH, I love braided hairstyles. I use to wear my hair with a side top french braid whenever I had a singing gig. It made me look younger, dainty, and perfectly neat.

Braided hairstyles are a smashing trend lately because of them being able to beautifully keep your hair out of your face. It does the same thing a ponytail does, only a lot less stiff.

Box braids, dutch braids, classic fishtail, or crochet braids, girls love them. Many teenage girls default to braided hairstyles and they really take the time to learn them.

So, check out our top braids for girls, inspirational braided hairstyles to pick, and try ’em all out!

Dainty Braided Hairstyles

Women with naturally curly hair can get away with a really volumized bun. Some women already find the usual top bun to be too common and boring. You can spice it up by adding a loose french braid starting on your fringe connecting to your bun.

2Stacked Fishtail Updo

Most women don’t have hours to a lot to do their hair. This why 10-15 minute braided hairstyles are heaven-sent! There’s no need for overkill products, curling iron, and whatnot. You can do this updo in less than 10-15 minutes! Isn’t that great? Depending on how quickly you can get dressed and do your makeup, you can get fully ready in an hour or so.

Would you agree that this is a great fall look? There’s something about the season that does wonders for your hair. Probably because there’s barely any humidity and you don’t have to extensively wash your hair every day.

13Dutch Fishtail Combo Side Braid

Start with a soft loose dutch braid crown and finish with a distinct and well-formed fishtail braid. I love how delicate the crown looks and how defined the tail is. A perfect balance of both sides.

14Side Elastic Braid

Not in a million years and not even a million hair products would help me get this full volume of braids. My hair is paper-thin which means braided hairstyles don’t work all that well for me. All I can work is a side braid on the top of my head and I’m happy with that. But for those of you who can totally achieve this thickness, give this a try!
