Braided Bun w/Ribbon | Updo Hairstyles

January 05, 2010

Many of you moms are asking for updo hairstyles that are quick and easy for your daughter’s in dance or ballet.

Many of my hairdo’s will work, but here is one that is very simple to follow and looks very cute from the audience…

I am not a ribbon expert, but received excellent advice from Annie on our Cute Girls Hairstyles Facebook Page that adding ribbon to a hairbraid does help add volume if your daughter has thin hair. (Many of my favorite hairbloggers like Princess Hairstyles and Girly Do Hairstyles, among others, are well more adept at ribboning than I!). For your ribbons, keep in mind this simple trick to stop fraying ends.

Enjoy!

Items Needed: 2 rubber bands, a few large bobby pins, 3 ft long ribbon (color of choice, hairspray.

Time Requirement: 3-5 minutes.

Skill Level: Easy

Happy Hairdoing!

Bundled Braids | Cute Hairstyles

February 16, 2009


Items Needed: Comb, brush, hairspray, spray bottle, 2 rubber bands, and accessories.

Time Requirement: 5-8 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Wet and brush hair. Part hair on left side of the head.

Pull all of hair back into ponytail on back center of head and secure with rubber band.

Divide ponytail into five even sections. Braid sections one at a time, having your DD hold each as you finish them.

Grab ends of all five braids and bring up (fold in half) to the rubber band. Ends of hair should now be sticking upward…

Secure with rubber band by wrapping around all five braids.

You will now have this…

The ends are a little bit of a mess, so I rat mine to add extra fluff (see below)…

Add any bows, flowers, or other accessories, as desired.

Happy Hairdoing!
