Boho Lace Tieback | Bohemian Chic Hairstyles

September 28, 2014

This week’s hairstyle uses a similar technique as our Lace Braided Heart, only our purpose here is to highlight the front parting of the hair and not so much the back.

That is why we show you today how to create a Boho Lace Tieback, a bohemian chic and hippie-ish hairstyle that is sure to get you compliments!

Hippie Hairstyles

The trick is to get your Lace Braid started, since you are using such a micro strand to begin with, but once you have it, this braid is really a cinch!

We love how boho {or bohemian} this look gives us, very much a hippie vibe without overdoing it.

As you can see, this hairstyle uses the unique combination of Lace Braids, Simple Braids, and a Tieback to complete the look. You can try mixing things up a bit by trying a side part, using fishtail braids, or any other way to spice up a combo.

This hairstyle combination can work on long, medium, or short hair, and is perfect for any occasion. It holds up well in sports {minus the accessory} and can be used as a wedding or communion hairstyle.

My girls use this in sports and dance, by pulling all the hair up into a ponytail instead of a tieback, with the Lace Braided portion keeping the hair out of their faces.

The style can also be worn with curly, wavy, or straight hair, and can be accessorized in any number of ways.

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 1-2 small hair elastics, 1 alligator clip, hairspray and accessory {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 4-5 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. {Optional Step} Begin with a base of soft curls or waves…
  2. Begin by parting your hair down the middle of your head…
  3. Move your hands up the part line about 3 inches from the forehead, and pick up a tiny strand of hair…
  4. Divide this section into 3 tiny, even strands and begin a simple braid stitch…
  5. After your first simple stitch, begin to add hair only into the strand on side closest to the part line {this creates a Lace Braid}…
  6. Continue to braid along the part, towards your face, until you reach your forehead, and then turn the braid so that it follows your hairline down towards your ear…
  7. Once you turn the braid, you will then be adding hair into the braid from the front, your forehead side…
  8. Continue braiding until you are about 2-3 inches above your ear.
  9. Stop adding in hair, and continue braiding the remaining strand using a simple braid…
  10. Secure the braid with an elastic, and clip this braid back out of the way using an alligator clip…
  11. Repeat Steps #2-8 on the other side of the head…
  12. When you are finished with the second braid, wrap both braids of hair around to the back/middle of the head, and secure together with an elastic…
  13. Add hairspray or accessory {if desired}.

How to Create a Lace Fishtail Tieback

September 21, 2014

This past week, my niece, age three, who also had such beautiful, long curly hair, was playing at a friends house when the little friend decided to give her a “hair cut”!

This has to be one of every parent’s nightmares! We’ve all been there, now knowing that for little girls hair, the sworn enemies are… kids scissors and gum!

My niece now has a super adorable, chin-length bob haircut. To help my sister-in-law feel a little better, we decided to upload a short hairstyle today! We are showing  you how to create a Laced Fishtail Tieback!

Laced Fishtail Tieback

This is a beautiful braided combo hairstyle that will look amazing if the hair has natural highlights in it. Fishtail braids are right on trend today, so this combo is sure to get you compliments!

Laced Fishtail Tieback

I originally tried this style with two lace-backs, but found that they winged out too much on the sides when I pancaked them. The only solution was to pin the braids down, but I didn’t like they way that looked.

After playing around for a few minutes, we decided to start each side with a few French Braid stitches to anchor the two braidbacks. This trick worked perfectly!

This hairstyle is versatile and perfect for girls with short hair, medium hair, or long hair. It can also be worn for any occasion, including sports, with straight hair or curls, too!

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

Time Requirement: 5-7 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

Step-by-Step Instructions: {Optional} Begin with straightened hair, or, if short, flip the hair out with a flat iron…

  1. Begin by parting the hair slightly off to one side…
  2. Now pick up a small section of hair near the front part, on the right side of head…
  3. Divide this section into two strands, and begin a French Fishtail stitch pattern {this step is essential, as the French stitching is what will anchor the Lace Braid down}…
  4. As you braid back, add in small sections of additional hair, and then grab the outside edges of the fishtail sections before crossing over…
  5. Repeat this process on both sides of the fishtail for about 2 -3 inches…
  6. As you near the ear, stop adding hair into the bottom and only add in hair from the top side of the braid braid {this creates the Lace Fishtail}, and braid around the back of the head using this pattern…
  7. When you reach the midway part of the back of the head, secure the braid off with an elastic…
  8. Repeat Steps #3-7 on the other side of the head…
  9. Once you have both fishtails in place, combine them carefully together in the back {if you have short hair, you may need to tuck the middle down a little so that it doesn’t stick up}…
  10. Secure the braids together with an elastic…
  11. Go back and gently tug on the bottom edges {pancake} of the lace fishtail to allow the stranding to pop out…
  12. Add hairspray and accessory {as desired}.

Happy Hairstyling!

Brooklyn and Bailey met up with their good friend Chelsea Crockett and filmed a fun 2-part tag series on each other’s channels.

The twins uploaded this 7-Second Challenge on their BrooklynAndBailey YouTube channel, and Chelsea uploaded the Whisper Challenge on her channel. Watching both videos reminds me so much of the slumber parties I used to have with my friends when I was their age! Have fun laughing!
