Two cute ribbon braids {hair tutorial}

Happy Friday everyone!  I just love fridays and weekends.  They are all about family which makes me happy.  I have two cute braids for you today.  These are easy to do but I love how they look.

I just love these braids.  What makes them special is the ribbon.

Isn’t that ribbon lovely?  This is from the Moonstitch ribbon line and this particular one is Moonstitch polka in shocking pink.  Let me tell you, it is just beautiful.

My girls like the 3 strand ribbon braid the best.

But for me it’s all about the fishtail.

You follow the same steps for both braids.  To start you need a length of ribbon.  About 1.5 times the length of the hair you are working with.

Split your hair in two and use a hair tie to secure the ribbon in a little piece of hair.  It doesn’t need to be pretty because you won’t see this part.

Take the ribbon and put it to the side.  Then split the hair into 3 sections {or two if you are fishtailing} and start braiding.

Do a couple of stitches and then put the ribbon back from the side.  It goes under the hair and you braid a few more stitches.  That’s all there is to it.  Do a few stitches with the ribbon on top and few stitches with the ribbon under.  Keep going until you reach the end of the hair.

I put a hair tie in to secure everything and then tied a bow with the ribbon.  If you decide not to tie the bow, you won’t need as much ribbon to start with.

And there you have it, cute ribbon braids.  I love how the ribbon mixes with the hair and gives a little pop of color.
