Dutch Accent Ponytail | Short Hairstyles

March 27, 2015

So, a few weeks ago, Bailey posted an “Outfit-of-the-Day” {OOTD} photo on Instagram of the clothing she put together and everyone commented by asking what it was that she had done with her hair. We’ve never filmed a tutorial for this hairstyle, as it was one she had been making on her own, so we decided post her video of it today!

I love this quick Dutch Accent Ponytail hairstyle because it is so easy to create and something you can do in under two to three minutes in the morning. It can also be done on either wet or dry hair.

You can watch the tutorial below…

If you know how to create a simple Dutch Braid, this tutorial will be very easy for you. You can incorporate this in any number of combinations and choose to also hair wrap the ponytail, if you wish.

I love seeing Bailey step into my shoes on our blog and YouTube channel. The grow up so fast, don’t they? She’s developed such a cute on-screen personality, and I think Bailey is more comfortable filming tutorials than I am! Here are a few more shots…

The point of this hairstyle is for it to be simple, and easy to do, but with a super cute look. You can add a base of curls to it, add a bow or other accessory, etc, as well.

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 1 ponytail holder, hairspray and accessory {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 2-3 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin by picking up a medium sizes section of hair at the top near your forehead, as start a Dutch braid…
  2. Continue with the Dutch braid, adding in hair on both sides, until it reaches your ear…
  3. While loosely holding the hair, go back and pancake the elbows of the braid to your liking…
  4. Then go proceed and finish off the strands with a simple braid {a regular three strand braid}, securing it with an elastic band…
  5. Next, pull the rest of your hair up into a ponytail, high or low, depending on your taste, and don’t forget to add the braid into your ponytail before you securing it with a ponytail holder…
  6. Fee free to go back again and touch up the pancaking in the Dutch braid, and section out a few thin strands of wispy hair on the sides of the face, between the temple and ear, and at the forehead corners, to soften the look…
  7. {Optional} Add a hair wrap to hide the ponytail holder, and add hairspray and accessory.

Pull-Through Fishtail Braid Combo

March 15, 2015

Our hairstyle today is inspired by both a Pull-Through Braid and a Fishtail Braid, beautifully combined into a combo that we first saw from Blohaute on Instagram. Brooklyn fell in love with this hairstyle first, and brought it to me volunteering to be my model! Doesn’t it look great?

This isn’t a complex braided hairstyle, although it really does look that way. We’ve shown you how to create a Pull-Through Braid before, and by now everyone hopefully knows how to Fishtail Braid.

Today we are blending these two braids into a gorgeous combo that we are certain you will love!

You can style this hair dry, like I did here, or wet. Feel free to also use a pomade, gel, or spray wax if you want a slicked-back look that would be perfect for dance or other athletics.

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 5 small hair elastics, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 8-10 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

Step-by-Step Instructions: 

  1. Begin by teasing the crown area of hair, and pulling it back into a poof or pompadour {hair parting for this section should be about 2 inches above the ears}…
  2. Next, secure this section of hair with an elastic and clip forward out of the way…
  3. Then part off another section of hair about 1 inch above the ears,  and secure them together with an elastic…
  4. Now, unclip the 1st ponytail of hair and split it in half, straddling the sections on either side of the 2nd ponytail…
  5. Clip the second ponytail up and out of the way…
  6. Gather another section of hair from the tops of the ears back {grab this hair and combine it with the end strands from the 1st ponytail, and secure with an elastic}…
  7. Let the 2nd ponytail of hair split in half and straddle each side of the 3rd ponytail, and then clip the 3rd ponytail out of the way…
  8. Repeat these steps over and over until you run out of hair {generally 4-5 ponytails}…
  9. On the last section, grab the ends of the ponytail, allowing them split and fall on either side of the 5th ponytail, and secure them underneath with an elastic…
  10. At this point, I go back and pancake the top pull-through braid sections, tugging on the elbows until they are about 2-3 times their original size…
  11. I then take all of the hair at the bottom of the pull-through braid, split it in half, and begin a REVERSE Fishtail {taking hair from the outer strands and crossing them under and into the opposing strand}…
  12. Once you have completely the fishtail go back and pancake the edges to give it a nice puffy look and an seamless integration into the pull-through braid above.
  13. Add hairspray or accessories {if desired}.
