11. Rope Braid Ponytail

Rope Braid Ponytail

Braids have become a typical choice for girls over the years and they really have a cool vibe to offer. But if you have got bored of creating those typical braided looks, here we have a different take at it.

To begin with, brush it up and get rid of all those tangles and knots from her hair. After that, form a high ponytail starting just above the crown area. Securing the hair into a beautiful high ponytail, apply a bit of hairspray to make sure that any flyways are taken care of.

Next, you have to make that rope braid which this hairstyle is all about. Create two sections out of the high ponytail you had created earlier and twist each of these sections in the same direction. Twist both sections together as you move in opposite directions for forming the rope braid.

Keep rope-braiding right to the bottom and when you have achieved a perfect style, secure it using a nice hair tie. It will create an interesting look overall.

12. Criss-Cross Hairstyle

This is another cool look to achieve when you are planning on easy hairstyles to do at home before heading to school. Here’s how to achieve this look.

Take a couple of small hair sections from the frontal part and pull both of them all the way to the back keeping it all tight. Use small elastic band to secure it to perfection.

Now, take another couple of sections from the front before repeating the same step as above. You may stop it here or continue to do so and form a cool braid eventually.

It’s a perfect hairstyle to ensure that hair does not fall over your face and, even though it doesn’t take more than a minute, it seems quite put-together overall.

13. Dutch Braided Bun

To achieve this hairstyle, section off the frontal hair and start creating a beautiful Dutch braid. Use small elastic to secure the braid you have just created and pull it all up into a cool ponytail. Stop right there or take it a step further by forming a beautiful braided bun at the back.

The hairstyle makes sure that the hair does not fall on the face and looks pretty well-organized. Besides, the braid element really makes this hairstyle look unique and beautiful.
