How to create the Kids Cornrow Braids Hairstyle

Follow the following step-by-step guide on how to create kids cornrow braids hairstyle.


Segment her hair into two halves on either sides

Segment the hair right from top to the bottom to leave two sides of hair creating a clear division. This will also give you a point of origin for your cornrow braids.


From the center towards the ear, plait several lines

Further divide into smaller hair sections originating from the center of your head towards the edge. With every segment, plait a line with a braid. Ensure that the first one is larger in size whereas the others take a smaller and even size. At this point, every line will be hanging at the edge.

N/B: Curve the lines on one side and plait straight lines on the other side to make it fun and adventurous.


Combine the lines

Combine the lines at the edge so you have one long line originating from the first line to the bottom and keep plaiting to the end of the braid. Do this on both sides.


Add colored bands to the two side lines edges

Pick hair bands of different colors and tie them to the two edges to add color and keep them in position.
