Cute hairstyles do not have to be complicated. We are almost always short on time on school mornings, so quick hairstyles like this are our go-to! So, what is a Loony Braid? It’s a braid that has two strands that are small and one strand that is bigger. When you braid these three, uneven, strands together, it gives a fun effect that looks a bit “loony”…thus the name :). You can do this braid without doing anything additional to the smaller strands and just keep it simple with the strands being “normal”. Or, you can spice it up a bit by doing what I did. It’s a simple addition to this style and it adds so much!
Ribbon (or another hair accessory if desired)
//Start with damp hair and brush it into a high ponytail.
// Add a ribbon or hair accessory if desired.
// Take one small section of hair and do a 3 strand braid and tie it off with an elastic.
// Take another small section of hair and do another 3 strand braid and tie it off with an elastic as well.
// Now you have 3 strands…2 micro braids and 1 bigger piece of hair.
// Take the 3 sections and do a dutch braid, meaning cross the sections backwards.
// Tie the braid off with an elastic.
// Go back up the braid and pancake, or pull and flatten, the thick section of hair.
