How to Do Double Braids

Double braids are a cute take on the traditional braid, looking especially gorgeous on little girls.

They are a great way for hair that is a little bit shorter, or has short layers, to be tied off the face and keep the creepy crawlies away!

Step 1

Part your daughters hair through the middle and section off one side with a tie. This keeps you from picking up from the wrong side when braiding theother and keeps a straight part in the centre.
