Long hair Braids
Long, thick hair offers many opportunities for cute girl hairstyles, and the right braid can add much to any style. One simple three-strand braid works wonders on both thin and thicker strands alike!

Fishtail braids are an elegant way to elevate any look, and they look particularly striking at formal events. To achieve this style, start by tying your hair into a low ponytail, then take small sections from outside one unit and cross over onto another area in small steps until all sections have been struck over and braided into each other until the entire braid reaches the end of your locks. If desired, “pancake” the braid to give it increased thickness.
This style may appear complex, but it’s much simpler than you realize! Perfect for long hair and non-layered types. For this style, start by tying your hair into a high ponytail. Grab small sections of either left or right hair from either team and cross it over onto the opposite side until your braid reaches the base of your head. Secure with clear elastics and cut off any extra.
Flip Over Braids
Flip-over braids offer an unexpected edge. Braid each section until reaching the end of your locks, then flip one section over onto another using a clear elastic.
