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!

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!

Time Requirement: 5-7 minutes.

Skill Level: Easy

Hi everyone! Many followers here and on YouTube have asked which hairstyle it was that I used on my #2 daughter in our Family Intro video. Honestly, it is very similar to another style we did only I completed this hairstyle with a braid instead of a topsy-tailed pony.

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

Back to School Hairdo: French "Doubled-Up" Braids

July 22, 2009

French Doubled-Up Braids

Items Needed: Brush, comb, spray bottle, 2 regular rubberbands, and 2 clear rubber bands.

Time Requirement: 5-10 minutes.

Skill Level: Medium

Begin by parting your DD’s hair on either side…

Now, create another part from the top down to each ear and clip the hair out of the way on one side.

Using the French braid technique, braid down both sections of hair to the ear. When you run out of hair to add to the French braid, just continue on with a regular braid through the length of the hair and secure with a clear rubber band…

Now part remaining hair into two equal parts down the back of head…

Gather and create a braid right behind the ear adding in the ends of the French braid…

I intentionally had my small braid showing within the larger braid…

Secure with a regular rubber band and you’re done!

Happy Hairdoing!
