Tiny and Mighty Everyday Braids

Tiny and Mighty Everyday Braids

Shake it up this spring-to-be with smaller braids to complement your majestic mane.

You’ve likely been rocking beach waves – or loose curls and braids – for some time now. We get it – they’re easy to pull off, and they give just enough curl that says, “I tried, but I didn’t TRY to fix my hair today.” Loose curls are a nice day-after look, too, by the way.

But it’s almost spring, and the sun may creep around the corner before you know it. You may be in the mood for something different. Maybe the ho-hum, humdrum of your beach waves turned pony lacks the luster it once had. Or maybe you want to marry the loose waves with something else?

That’s where tiny braids come in. This is the more formed, tightly woven cousin to the beachy-wave braid. They’re fun and very versatile. Whether you’re sporting a chic, short hairdo or long locks, tiny braids add texture and dimension wherever the mood strikes you.

Tiny Braids of Glory

If a romantic look is your thing for February (or even if it’s not), braids are one way to add flair and fun to your proverbial crown of glory. Try one or two small, tight braids anywhere you’d like, or strategically add three to each side. Here’s how:

  1. Beginning near your crown, separate out 1/4-inch sections for each braid. To make this process easier, use Pantene Pro-V Stylers Shaping Hairspray to keep the pieces of hair together
  2. Braid each and secure with a small hair tie
  3. Bring the three braids from each side to meet in the back of your hair. Join them together with a tie or pins

The Not-so-tiny (Half-up) Crown Braid

Whether you have curly or straight hair, here’s an even simpler no-fuss style for the spring.


2 small hair bands
Bobby pins


  1. Separate out a 1/2-inch section of hair on one side of your head, above the ear. Divide this section into thirds and braid
  2. Turn the braid around the back of your head and hold the end in place with a hair band
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 on the opposite side of your head. Hold the end of the second braid with a hair band
  4. Loop the first braid around the back of your head and secure it with bobby pins
  5. Cross the second braid over the first and tuck the end behind the first braid. Hold in place with bobby pins. Spray for more security

Tip: Protect against any styling fatigue or breakage with Pantene Repair and Protect Shampoo.
