How To Style Braided Bangs

How To Style Braided BangsI am braid obsessed! I have a couple different tones in my hair, and I love how small braids can show these colors off. This style is called braided bangs. This style works best on ladies with no bangs (like me) or longer bangs that can be braided. If you have shorter bangs might I suggest trying a braided crown for a similar look.Braided Bangs Step-by-step1. Start by parting your hair far to one side. I have very thin hair so I also pull quite a bit of my parted hair forward to use in the braid. 2. Starting at the part, divide a small section of your hair into three sections. 3. Loosely french braid your hair along the front of your head, just below your hairline. 4. After you have french braided down to your ear, continue braiding your hair out, so you can style in a bun or pony tail. After I finish my braid, I always comb my hair down a bit to push the braid lower into bang position. Smooth any loose hairs and style as you like.How To Style Braided Bangs I usually finish by styling my bang braid into a side pony tail. Once you get the hang of this technique I think you'll see that it's super simple and can add a lot to a simple look. I wore this style yesterday to date night with a simple dress and scarf. 🙂 xo.

  • really pretty style.

  • Wow, that’s such a cute hairstyle! My bangs are a tad too short for this style, but I really love how it looks on her. <3

    xo, Adriana.

  • I need to this! looks pretty and simple. I have an ombre, too and I love how it’s shown off in braids.

  • LOVE it! I do this a lot. Can’t wait for my bangs to grow out a little more so it gets bulkier and doesn’t have so many flyaways! Love it, Emma!

  • beautiful! it would also look cute with bright or gold bobby pins for a bit of sparkle

  • Very cute. I’m growing my bangs out so I can do cute things like this. FYI, I have very fine hair and was frustrated by how thin it looked (its naturally curly but very fine), so I started taking biotine, and not only has my grown a ton, but it’s super thick!! Now the braid down my back is way thick 🙂

  • so cute, I must say that u have a really nice ide to meke your hairs in this way

  • I’ve got bangs so I don’t think this will work on my hair but I’m going to show my daughter this. She’s always looking for new styles and has the right length hair for it. Thanks girls:)

  • Love braids! I think they work with any season! And they’re quick and simple!

  • Nice this is really helpful!


  • This looks super adorable on you! This confirms it, I absolutely must learn to French-braid properly so I can try this with my hair.

  • i love this!! looks so great with your hair color!!

  • Lovely look, I’m probably trying it soon as my bangs are super long and asking for a cut but I’m too lazy.

  • Super adorable! especially with that hair colour <3

  • I love when Emma braids her hair. Makes the ombre color that much more vibrant. Gorg!

  • Great style! But I really love your hair colour, super inspired! Thanks!

  • i do this style myself all the time now, cause i’m letting my bangs grow out! 🙂

  • The two tones DOES compliment your braids to well! LOVE it. Gorg look!

  • I love it. It’s not a style I can pull off but maybe one day I’ll put it to good use.

  • Are you and Elsie wearing each other’s clothes? 🙂 Looks like you’re both loving the black and white stripes in these back to back posts.

  • Lovely style! This almost makes me wish I didn’t have bangs 🙂

  • Sometimes I do it like this, but somethings I just roll my hair up and then put it in a side pony tail! It’s really easy and funny!

  • This is so great! often times i hate having my bangs in my face so this is perfect for days you want your hair to look cute, but not have it in the way!


  • This is such a useful hairstyle. Classy and yet practical all in one! Thanks for this 🙂

  • I Love this! A girl I work with always does this with her hair and I thought it would be so much more complicated than this.
    Thansk for the tutorial!

  • LOve it on you but somehow my hair doesn’t cooperate 😀

  • So cute! I’m always looking for styles that look great on girls who don’t have bangs!

  • You look so pretty! 🙂

  • My fringe (bangs to you) are probably too short for this unless I use a MOUNTAIN of hairspray, but this is soooo pretty, I might just have to try anyway.Rx

  • I love this so much! I tried it with my eyebrow length bangs, and you were right – it didn’t work quite the same, but I was able to use some bobby pins to keep it looking tidy:)

  • I have tried this with my shorter bangs… still trying to get use to the way it looks! I like it on Emma’s hair!

  • very cute! i need to practice braiding more often…
    a normal braid is no problem, but side braids like this one never look like they should!
    way more messy, haha.
    xo, cheyenne

  • Aw lovely.
    I like the ombre in your hair, it gives the look an extra effect.


  • It looks so cute! I sometimes do this and have my hair in a messy bun, but this looks so nice too!

  • Elsie that looks so cute! I usually stick to milkmaid braids, but I think I need to try this next! If you get a chance, I’d love you to stop by my blog! I just did a post on my latest thrifted finds (including fringe boots!) and I have a giveaway going!


  • Emma, I love your hair so much.

    xo, Clare

  • The braid looks awesome with your two-toned hair 🙂

  • I am loving all this fall stuff! However I am missing the tradition of the pumpkin spice playlist! Its honestly my favorite thing on the blog every year!

  • I just can not get ahold of how to french braid my own hair! Looks sweet though~*

  • love this hair style !!

  • Very, very beautiful! Love your hair color!!! <3

  • i’ve tried doing this before and it never hangs quite as lovely as yours. i never thought of combing it down to lower the hang. i’ll have to try it again! thanks for the tip!

  • Love the colors in your hair! I just braided my bangs yesterday. Comes in handy when teaching Pilates 🙂

  • I keep wanting to try braiding my bangs. I have saved a few tutorials on how to do it! haha So far I’ve been unsuccessful 🙁 I will try again!

  • This is such a pretty look! I wonder if my bangs are long enough to do this… I will definitely have to try it!

  • Love it! I used to do this, but I have straight bangs now (a lot like Elsie’s actually!). Do you know of any similar styles for my bangs? Thanks!
    Ps. I LOVE your blog. I look forward to the posts every day! Y’all are a big inspiration to me!

  • Emma, I LOVE your hair!
    I use this hair style a lot for sports, because it’s really cute and keeps my hair out of the way(:

  • This is adorable!! I’m actually rediscovering braids since cutting bangs a few weeks ago. (I haven’t touched either since I was about 8).

    Probably can’t do this one anymore but love some of the others you’ve done! Great inspiration.


  • Love this style on you, Emma! Looks great. Boho with a feminine twist. 🙂
