Star Hairstyle Tutorial, How To Make A Braided Star

This star hairstyle for the 4th of July has been a yearly tradition at our house since our daughter was 3 years old! I’m guessing some of you have the same tradition? We have noticed over the past couple of years that this braided star hairstyle has become very popular on social media as well as in “real life” for many little girls on the fourth of July. Although I’m sure there are plenty of tutorials on the internet already, we wanted to add this fun style to our collection as well. After all, it is one of our favorites!

We originally did a pictorial for a rope braided variation this style on our website way back before we did YouTube in 2009: and added a “glowing version” in 2011: But we somehow have not gotten around to filming a video for the standard braided star pigtails until this year. Better late than never, right?

Now that the Princess is getting a little bit older, she is planning on a more “grown up” look for her 4th of July hair. (Spoiler alert, watch for that next week!) So, we invited my cute little niece to be our model for today. You may remember “the pea” from several toddler hairstyle videos on our channel when she was just a baby. Can you believe she just turned 5?! She is so adorable and looks so cute wearing this star hair style.

This basic idea can be used to create several different star hair variations, depending on your preference. We have used rope braids, fishtail braids, ribbon braids, and 4-strand braids to form the star in the past. And instead of pigtails, you can finish off this style with buns, or braids if you prefer. When “The Princess” had shorter hair, we did sort of a “mini version” using ribbon:
