Natural Flower Girl Hair Style: Quick Veil Style into Braids

Instructions:
  • Start with well moisturized, properly detangled, stretched hair. I stretched A's hair this time around with about 7-8 large single braids.
  • You will start by parting the hair from ear to ear. Tie off the back section to get it out of your way.
  • On your top section, part a square right in the front of the hair, place that section in a rubberband or ponytail holder. You will then part a square on both sides of your first section, place those sections in a rubberband/ponytail holder as well. You now have three sections in the front.
  • Split each front section into two and braid each section about two inches down. So you have a total of 6 half braids in the front.
  • Part right in the middle, behind your first square to start your back sections. Part a square slightly to the side then take one of your front middle braids and connect it into the back section.
  • Part a square next to your first back section square and once again, take the other front middle braid and connect it into that ponytail.
  • You will continue this process until you are done. Once complete, you should have 3 squares in the front, and 4 in the back. The ponytail squares in the front should connect to the back ones.
  • Braid the rest of the hair left over in your back sections, so you will have 4 medium/large braids.
  • Untie the back section, part it straight down the middle then cross over the two middle braids. Braid all the way down.
  • From there you just need to accessorize. I choose some flowers for this style but this can easily be dressed down. Choose colorful ponytail holders and fun accessories!

Tools Used:
  • Metal rat tail comb
  • Modified Denman D3 Brush
  • Bee Mine Products
  • Rubberbands, flower clips, ouchless ponytail holders

Total Styling Time: About 20-25 minutes

  1. this is cute. You could also vary the style with this one in the back...a low bun in the back (like you showed last week with the braids), curlformers/flexi rods in the back, or a 2 strand twist out in the back. Thanks for the ideas!

  4. This is very cute!! A is getting so big! This style is similar to a style I did for Anisa a couple of months ago. I did it with fish tail braids. Check out my profile pic if you want to take a look.

  5. Beautiful. Great simple style for those days when your in a hurry but need to do a quick style that still comes out beautiful. Love it. It seems like A hair has gotten thicker or my eyes are playing a trick on me. Maybe the the braids are braided very loose and big because that can give off the same look. Anyway...still beautiful.

  6. Thanks ladies!

    @Aisha, it is! I love the fishtail version. I actually first did this style in 2009 for our first style challenge. We had lots of entries and happygirlhair ended up winning-

    The post was deleted when I deleted all of my other posts due to the hair salon picture incident. I need to try to get it all reposted.

    Beautiful hairstyle(Profile Pic). I need to start back doing little girls hair. My boys are getting so big...they just want braids mixed with twist and rarely any designs anymore ( they love their shrinkage and how the twist looks like dreds but they don't want dreds). Oh well It's their decision, plus they want something thats quick and I am OK with that.LOL. Great Job

  8. There is something so special about the veil style. It looks elegant and interesting without being fussy or over-complicated. It looks beautiful on A.

  9. @ Nikki - I just took a look at the link. Very cute! That little girl has beautiful hair!

    @ Dimples - I love the dred look that I get from my twists as well. It's so easy! I need easy styles for myself. Anisa has been wearing box braids for the last week and a half. I've been changing them up a lot. I love box braids! They are so versatile!

  11. Aisha I love the profile pic - can you do a tutorial so I can see some different pics?

    Nikki - I tried something similar but the entire hair was in boxes instead of just two in the back. I will try this one this weekend.

  12. Can I just say I'm so glad you started doing flower girl hairstyles! I'm aiming to get married next year & have been searching already to collect possible styles. Thanks again!

  14. Looks beautiful!

    Wish I was as good as you with making clean and creative parts in the hair, lol. Since I am right-handed and goofy, all my parts tend to slant more to the right, especially because I part from ear-to-ear starting from the left side. Weird.

    I think after our week of ballerina buns we'll settle on this style and just change up the back: two braids, one Indian braid, a ballerina low bun, an unbraided ponytail, big box braids...tons of possbilities. So, we'll love this style.
