5 cute hairstyles for back to school

French braid

The first hairstyle is a basic French braid. This hairstyle might look like you’ve spent hours trying to make your braid look perfect. But in reality, it might only take you five to fifteen minutes depending on your skill level!

French braid ponytail

This next hair style is a French braid mixed with a ponytail. All you do is take a small section of your hair and braid that section. (If you can’t French braid, a regular braid will do.) Then you take the other section of your hair and tie your hair into a ponytail. Instead of using a hair tie, you can take a small piece of your hair and use it as a replacement. (Again, if you don’t know how to tie your hair up with a section of hair, you can use a rubber band similar to your hair color.)

Messy bun

If you want to look like you’ve been trying your hair for a long time, then a messy bun is the way to go! The first step you need to do is put your hair in a loose ponytail, you can have it as high or low as you want. Next, part your hair into two sections in the ponytail, depending on how much hair you have, and tease. When you’re done, take these two sections and wrap them both around your hair tie in opposite directions.

Half up half down bun

This style is simple half down, half down. For this style, divide your hair into two layers. Then take your top layer and wrap it into a bun, you can do a pieced up bun or a messy bun. For this next step, you can straighten, curl, or keep your natural hair on the bottom layer.

dutch braids

For this last hairstyle, you can do dutch braids. Dutch braids are basically French braids, but instead of braiding your hair like a normal braid and crossing the hair over another piece of hair to create the braid, you take the piece and cross it under the other piece and create the braid. If you can’t do a Dutch braid, you can simply do a regular braid in pigtails or a fishtail braid in pigtails.
