Braided Styles for Summer Swimming Season for Little Girls

black and white woman braided hair

I need to get my 11-year old daughter’s hair braided for daily swim season. She swims on a recreational team and I’m in search of a style that is easy to install, will survive daily exposure to chlorine and co-washing and will fit in her swim cap.


So, I headed to YouTube, my fave source for inspiration and ideas and I found these three styles. I’ll try to do the second one on my own and hire someone to do the more complex style later.
