Side Ponytail Combo | Teen Hairstyles

July 21, 2011

Here is a teen hairstyle that we uploaded to YouTube two months ago, but had not yet posted it here! My #2 daughter loves this style and does it all the time on herself {single or double ponytails}!

For added texture, you can Double French Braid the hair the day before and use the curls for 2nd Day ‘Do before completing this style {as I did in the photo}. In the tutorial, the hair was straight.

This hairstyle uses a simple side ponytial, with a partial Fishtail Braid. I also show how to use a hair-wrap around the hairbands, which really makes the style look darling {I only did one in the video, but would recommend wrapping both elastics}! Enjoy!

Items Needed:
Rat-tail comb, two hairbands, Topsy Tail tool {if desired}, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 5 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

Happy Hairdoing!

Bohemian Fishtail Braid | Popular Hairstyles

May 11, 2010

So many viewers have been asking for a hairstyle tutorial on how to do a Fishtail Braid (also called a mermaid braid). Here it is!!! It is a fun hair style, with a very unique look… and you can pretty much use it anywhere you would typically use a simple braid.

For this tutorial, I explain how you can have the braid look two different ways.  The first is one with a ponytail into the braid ending with another band (typical braid style), with the second being a more Bohemian loose style with only one band at the end. Younger girls prefer the tight fishtail while teens particularly like the latter, which is what I demonstrate here.

If you do not know how to fishtail braid, please pay particular attention to how to handle the stranding

Items Needed: Rat-tail comb, 1 long aligator clip, 1 large hairband, hairspray, accessories if desired.

Time Requirement: 5 minutes

Skill Level: Medium


Happy Hairdoing!
