Cute Looped Braid Hairdo Tutorial

Cute Looped Braid Hairdo

I really want to thank all of you for encouraging my first attempt at hairdos. I am not a pro at hair, so I thank you for appreciating my humble efforts.

So let’s proceed to today’s hairdo. It’s a simple looped braid with a little twist. I like to wear my hair on the side, so this too is a side swept do as the last one.

Braids are really in this season, so you’ll see a lot of braid hairbands, braided buns and French braids around. This is the simplest braid-do I can do.

These are the things that you’ll need for this hairdo:


1. A couple of hair ties

2. A couple of small elastic rubber bands
3. Plain black bobby pins
4. Hairspray (optional)

Let’s start:

Step 1: Brush all your hair on one side. If you have thin hair, wherein scalp shows through, you can also create a deep side part.

Step 2: Divide the hair into one large section (top) and one very small section (bottom). Like so:

Step 3: Secure the divided sections into two ponytails. Again- one large and one small. The larger ponytail should be at the ear level and the smaller at the nape of the neck.

Step 4: Braid the two ponytails. Now you have a large braid on top and small braid at the bottom.

Step 5: Loop the bigger braid inwards and tuck it under the base using bobby pins.

Step 6: Wrap the smaller braid around the loop and pin it under at the base of the loop.

I was feeling too lazy to wear makeup today, so the bare face. Hope I don’t look too hideous.

Hope you like this do.

Lots of love

                  But here is sumthin i am proud of…….i shouted at a conductor in a bus…Coz he started acting mean to me…..!!!!

                  1. I have also shouted at bus conductors a lot… Thinking of it today, it all sounds so funny :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:

                    1. he he he… know, my friend once poked a compass into a conductor’s prohibited part because he was acting smart with her…….and there was only this “ah” sound he made and he was gayaab for around one week she says :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot:

                    2. i have gotten into fights many times too… awesome… once I got onto the bus and gave 50 paise as Concession and he goes :”50 paise…U can have it baak” if i will be scared and pay him full charge..and i just took the money bak and said:” thanks” and i sat down and traveled for free,….:D 😀

                      But another time i fully got pissed off when they asked me what i was doing getting on the bus frm another stop than near my skool…I just got Majorly andgry and shouted…”if i want to buy things,will u come and buy it for me?! or will u arrange sum1 to do it for me??! no right??! so i have to do my purchasing for myself..and actually this is none of ur business either..!!!!”

                    3. HMPH..these kinda conductors and all need that!! :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: 😆 😆 😆 😆 :duel: :duel: :duel: :duel: :duel: :duel: :duel: :duel:

      1. oh……………take it easy Priya……………and come back soooooooooooon :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  20. yup mrun..i got too mch of bhav dat i was on d verge of getting beaten by dem. :lol2: :secret2: .nd i did d 1 flip nly..

  21. hey mrun :-)) you look good with any hairdo 😀 it reminds me the braid look of 17th or 18th century english ladies 😀
    btw i tried your messy bun 😛 all i could do was loop it twice bun nahi bana tied it into a braid instead 😛 bz even with half hair through the loop i had long length of hair left that didnt look like bun but looked too much more messy than required 😀

    keep doing the tutorials dear …need more bun ideas 😀

    1. Thanks a lot Shreya!!! :thanks: :thanks: :thanks:

      You must have longer hair than mine.. So the loop was oval than round.. But gr8 idea to braid the remaining hair.. You could flip the braid through and create a looped braid as above.. Two hairstyles in one!!!! :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

      1. i tried that too i did one loop as you said braided it half way through then again fliped my remaining hair through the loop of braid and cont. the pony it looked lovely in long hair .. kinda french hair style ..& i love the french kinda styles 😀
