We all loved Frozen when we first saw it and it had lots of memorable moments as well. Everyone loved the main character of Elsa Queen and the hairstyle she wore became popular among the masses as Elsa’s braid hairstyle.
If your little girl also watched the movie, it goes without saying that she’d also have been impressed by the signature braid hairstyle Elsa wore in it. And, if she insists on wearing the same look, or any of its variations, you can always style her hair like that with a little bit of effort.
Let’s first check out how to create that type of signature braid hairstyle and then get into some of the variations of the hairdo that you could style your girl’s hair with.
How To Create Elsa’s Braid?
To be precise, you could give your little girl this wonderful hairstyle in a couple of steps. The first one requires you to create some volume in her hair and then creating a French braid in a typical Elsa’s style. And, obviously, she needs to have that much hair length as well.
Here is how you can create volume in her hair to start with.
- Start by brushing her hair and ensuring that it’s all dry, clean, and completely tangle free. If your girl has got curly hair, you’d be able to easily work with it by blow drying it or straightening it all before you begin.
- Create some texture with the help of a texturizing product sprayed throughout her hair and then scrunched with your fingers. It will improve the volume as well as the wavy look of her hair.
- Now, take her top hair section and part it from rest of her hair. Next, add a volumizing product and make sure that it’s put along her root line. Repeat the same step by taking smaller sections from the top.
- Next up, take the hair section on top and part it from the hair beneath. Back comb her hair at roots using teasing comb. Repeat the process with several sections on top of her head to ensure that you backcomb at root. Now, use smoothing brush for brushing hair back lightly so that it can smoothen out those out of place teased pieces.
- Finally, for creating extra volume like we saw in the Elsa’s hair, a bump has to be created on top of her head. Take smaller hair section from the center and twist it slightly for giving it a bit of lift. Repeat the same with a couple of small hair chunks on right and two on left. These sections should then be twisted towards center of her head so that there may not be any kind of hair part whatsoever. Make sure all twists you have created join each other in the center and push up slightly to give her a bit of volume. Use bobby pins to secure these twists together. The bump would be ready now.
Next, you need to create a French Braid in exactly the same manner as with Elsa’s hair. Here are the steps to follow.
- Grab a section of hair at the crown area and create three equal sections out of it as you start French braiding.
- Add hair from the left to the left section as you braid and cross it over the middle section.
- Add hair from the right side to the right section as you braid and cross it over the middle section.
- Keep braiding by following the above two steps right to the tips of her hair. Make sure that you grab bigger sections from either side so that it looks exactly like Elsa’s braid which is bigger and a bit messy at the same time.
- Finish it off in the front by going under the middle section which is commonly the case with the Dutch braid.
- Use elastic to secure it at the bottom.
- Finally, pull out the sections of the braid slightly to loosen it up a bit and make it look much more relaxed. It will make the braid look bigger and more voluminous.
