We originally did a pictorial for a rope braided variation this style on our website way back before we did YouTube in 2009: http://www.princesshairstyles.com/2009/03/winners-and-twist-braid-star.html and added a “glowing version” in 2011: http://www.princesshairstyles.com/2011/06/4th-of-july-hairstyles-glowing-star.html 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: http://www.princesshairstyles.com/2010/06/ribbon-star-hairstyle.html
If you are undecided on how to wear your hair this year and are looking for ideas, we have several 4th of July hairstyles to browse through on our website here: http://www.princesshairstyles.com/search/label/4th%20Of%20July
Happy Independence Day to all of our American viewers!
