Teen Hairstyles: Braided Headband into a Rose

January 25, 2011

Over the past few months I have received a few inquiries asking for hair headband hairstyles . You could say that the hair headbands are somewhat of a trend that is very popular with teens today. This style is a fairly simple one, and can be done in the normal French Braid style, or in the Reverse (Dutch) Braid style, depending on how you want it to look.

Also, you can finish the headband in any number of ways. You can leave the braid hanging on the one side, or you can do what I did and roll it up and bobby pin it into a super cute rosette. The latter is not a new concept and is not something I could claim, but the combination is wonderful.

I was planning on leaving the hair as filmed in the video, but… as you can tell from the photos, I decided to pull the rest of the hair into a loose side braid. You could leave the hair down straight, curl it, or do a side flipped pontail or a braid like I did. Your combinations really can be endless and entirely up to you!

Items Needed: Spray bottle, rat-tail comb, brush (if needed), 1 large hair band, 1 small hair elastic, hairspray, 2-3 bobby pins, and accessories (if desired).

Time Requirement: 5-7 minutes.

Skill Level: Easy

There you have it! If you like this hairstyle… be sure to let us know!

Braided-Over Ponytail | Cute Hairstyles

November 04, 2010

About a month ago, a loyal follower emailed me a photo of a braided hairstyle , asking if I could replicate it and possibly do a tutorial. Never having seen it before, I was fascinated with how it looked and spent an hour or so trying to recreate it.

I did figure it out although the braid did take some practice to get the stranding correct, but here is what the hair style looks like…

When I first posted the video on YouTube, a viewer commented that he had seen this braid style used on horse tails in horse competitions, etc. I can only describe this style as a Fishtail Braid that uses three strands (as in a typical braid) rather than two.

I think that this is a beautiful braid… good enough to not only be worn on horse tails! I coupled the style with the Hair-Wrapped Ponytail as a starting point. You could even opposing-curl strands of the remaining ponytail hair to add additional flair to the style! My #2 daugther was stopped time and time again in the hall at church this past Sunday by moms trying to figure out exactly how this hairstyle was done.

Personally, I think that the braid looks more amazing by using even smaller strands from the back.

Items Needed: Rat-tail comb, water bottle, and 2 ponytail holders.

Time Requirement: 10-15 minutes

Skill Level: Hard

If you like this braided hairstyle, be sure to let us know! Happy Hairdoing!

Glee Hairstyles: Quinn Fabray Tieback

September 08, 2010

So during my summer, during what little free time I had, I became hooked on Fox’s summer repeat of the “Glee” musical TV series. Although the dramatic content is not suitable for children, I have shown my girls a few of the awesome musical numbers and mashups from albums that we all grew up with!

If you watch the series, you will notice that there are quite a few fun braided hairstyles worn by the girls. In my opinion, Dianna Agron’s character Quinn Fabray has the most beautiful styles…

Quinn Fabray Braids

The series shows quite a few messy (loose) braid styles, and Quinn regularly sports a French Front as seen in the above photo.  This hairstyle is perfect for teens/tweens, moms, and little girls. You will also notice that hairstyles like this are extremely popular right now, so I can guarantee that you will receive tons of compliments.

Double French Tieback (rear)

Items Needed: Rat-tail comb, spray bottle, one hairband, hairspray, (accessory if desired).

Time Requirement:  3-5 minutes.

Skill Level: Easy

The particular hairstyle I show below is a “double variation” of the style seen in Quinn’s photo above, with a tieback to finish it off.  If you choose to vary the style a bit for another day, feel free to try a Dutch Braid version!

Happy Hairdoing!

French Front: Subtle Side Ponytail

April 29, 2010

I receive quite a few comments on this very popular front french braid hairstyle everyone is wearing, wondering what other ways there are to finish it.  Honestly there are several ways to do it, and here is one more.  This one uses a subtle side ponytail…

The hairband accessory that I used is from TWISTband, which is a fun product but also provides a unique and fashionable way to hold hair.  They are stretchy, like spandex, come in all sorts of colors and patterns, and some can even be worn as bracelets to match!
They are perfect for little girls, tweens, teens, and moms!  I know there are some other hairstyles I can do that these will be perfect for (coming soon)!
Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 1 Twistband or 1 hair elastic, hairspray {if desired}.
Time Requirement: 3-5 minutes
Skill Level: Easy
The video below shows how to finish this hairstyle…

Happy Hairdoing!

Reverse French Front | Dutch Braids

March 08, 2010

A month or so ago we posted the Lauren Conrad French Front hairstyle video tutorial. Since that time, many of our followers have asked that I provide a tutorial for this same hairdo, but in reverse (outtie) or Dutch braiding style…

Items Needed: Spray bottle, rat-tail comb, 1 clear elastic band.

Time Requirement:  3-5 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

You can view this video below.  Keep in mind, you can finish this hairstyle any number of ways.  You can tuck the braid under a down ‘do, like often seen, or you can wrap the braid into a fun ponytail (with accessories).   This is completely up to you.  It is a hairstyle that can be used on girls of all ages, moms included!

Happy Hairdoing!
