Topsy Tail Plait & Bun
Twin Braid and Bun
Hot Tip: Use a detangling spray to help make hair easily manageable.
When styling girls hair keep in mind the requirement of hats at school – low styles work better with hats.
The school yard is a hot spot for head lice where children play in close vicinity and are in regular contact with each other. One of the key prevention methods is to keep long hair tied up. This reduces the opportunity for head lice to catch on to your children hair.
NitWits have put together some quick, easy and gorgeous hair styles for girls. Have fun!
- Part the hair in the centre and secure each section into a low pony tail with a hair band
- Plait each pony tail and fold (underside) in half towards the scalp
- Secure each ‘tail’ with a hair band. At this point you can leave the plait tails as they are or proceed to a Princess style.
- Follow step 1 for ‘Plait Tails’
- Wind the plait around the secured top hair band (closest to the scalp) into a bun
- Secure with a bobby pin.
Topsy Tail Plait
- Pull the hair back into a full pony tail and secure with a hair band
- Nudge the hair band back approx. 2 cm away from the scalp
- Create an opening between the scalp and the hair band with your fingers
- Fold hair up and through the opening pulling the entire pony tail right through. The hair should now look like a pony tail with a “fancy” top.
- Plait and secure with a hair band. At this point you can leave the hair as a long plait or proceed to the Topsy Tail Bun.

- Part the hair at the centre of the head
- Working with one half of the head at a time, separate the first section into three pieces
- Pull the left piece of hair over the second, which will position the centre piece to the left, and the third piece over the second piece that is now the centre piece
